Get that tropical glow with this glamorous bronze makeup look

Searching for the perfect sun-kissed style? This glamorous bronze makeup will make it look like you just got back from a tropical vacation. The look also has a serious 2000s pop star vibe, because the decade was obsessed with bronzer and frosty eye shadow.
This look is all about warming colors and techniques. Shimmery ivory shadow on the middle of your lids creates the illusion that you’re glowing from within. Framing it with matte brown shadow and bronzer gives the look depth and balance. Bronzer along your cheekbones and around your hairline offers subtle contouring and an effortless post-beach glow.

Instructions
1. Spritz your face with Caudalie Beauty Elixir to tighten pores and keep your skin looking radiant. Dry your face with a hand fan.
2. Pat pore minimizing serum onto your face. Dry your face with a hand fan.
3. Rub moisturizer into your face using your fingers.
4. Apply foundation with a foundation brush. Use long strokes across your cheeks, and blend in the foundation around your eyes using the side of a damp blending sponge with a stippling motion.
5. With contour cream a few shades lighter than the foundation, draw several lines beneath your eyes in the shape of a triangle. Blend it in with the tapered end of a damp blending sponge and a stippling motion.
6. Apply setting powder on your cheeks with the side of a blending sponge using a stippling motion. Blend in the edges of the powder with a brush.
7. Sweep bronzer along your cheekbones and around your hairline. This will help lightly contour your face. Swirl and stipple blush on the apples of your cheeks.
8. Shape and define your brows. First shape your brows with a spoolie. Then, use an angled brow brush and brow pomade to line and fill in your brows.
9. With your fingertip, apply eye shadow primer to your lids to help the eye shadow stay in place.
10. Apply mascara to your upper lashes.
11. With a fluffy eye shadow brush, apply “Inda Sun” or bronzer to your crease and the outside of your lid.
12. Use the same brush to apply “Mocha” or a matte shadow the color of baking chocolate on top of the bronzer you applied in step 11.
13. Use the same brush to apply “Chip” or a matte shadow the color of chocolate chips to the inside of the outer edge of your lid. Apply it to the inside of your lid as well.
14. With a flat eye shadow brush, tap “Nude Beach” or a shimmery ivory shadow to the middle of your lid.
15. Use the edge of the flat brush to line your upper lash line with “Abyss” or a matte black shadow.
16. Line your lower waterline with “Black Lace” or a black eye pencil. Apply mascara to your lower lashes.
17. Pick up the false eyelashes with tweezers, and add a small like of lash glue onto the lash band. Allow the glue to set for 10 seconds before applying the lashes just above your upper lashes.
