Bronzed glow makeup look

Today I decided to go for a more sun kissed bronzed glow using each and every product in the photos above and as always each product listed will be linked. First off I like to start with my tarte cosmetics timeless smoothing primer. This primer does a great job with filling in small fine lines and pores as well as blurring imperfections. I like to take a small amount of this product and warm it up with my fingers before applying to the skin. Once my base is ready to go, I like to go in with my Natural Finish Oil Free Foundation by Coverfx. This foundation is amazing because not only can it go from sheer to full coverage, but it also doesn't contain any bad or harsh ingredients! Its also vegan friendly for all of my vegan makeup junkies out there. I love applying this foundation using my beauty blender for a more sheer coverage or a brush for a more full coverage. And another great thing about CoverFX as a brand in general is there are so many shades in each range of their foundations so you are most likely going to find your true match. Continuing on with the face products, I then like to go in with my Tarte Shape Tape concealer in shade Fair. This concealer is very full coverage and dries to a natural matte finish so be light handed with this product if you aren't used to it yet. I usually apply this right under my eyes in upside-down triangles, then onto my forehead, down the bridge of my nose, and then onto my chin just to highlight those areas. I then like to set my under eye area using the Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder. I used to love this powder a lot but am going to be switching over soon to the CoverFX translucent setting powder just to try something new. Now Im turning the focus onto my brows! I take my Ka-Brow by Benefit and fill in my natural brow shape and then just set with a clear brow gel (no pictured) by Anastasia Beverly Hills. Once the brows are done, I like to take my Urbandecay Primer Potion in shade Eden just to prep the eyelids for shadow.

I love using my Melt Cosmetics Rust Stack (shown Above) to continue on with the bronzed look that I am going for.

First I take the shade Basic (a warm yellow) to act as a base for the other shadows to blend out with ease.

I then take the shade Rubbish (a medium warm blonde-brown) and apply that to the crease. I also use this color right under my lower lash line. 

Next I take the shade Rust (a dark warm brown) to deepen the crease and create a doe eyed affect towards the outer edge of the lid.

And lastly, I like to go in with Rott (a true cool-toned dark brown) and apply this very close to the upper and lower lash line using it as a liner to give that soft, smokey affect to the eyes.

Focusing back onto the face, I am going to highlight the high points (cheekbones, brow bone, tip of nose, cupids-bow etc) using my Becca highlighter in shade Moonstone, as well as bronze up the face using my Hoola Bronzer by Benefit (not pictured) to the areas that I want to look more contoured (hallows of cheekbones, forehead, temples, jawline, nose etc.)

To add a bit more color back to the face, I use the Nars blush in shade Orgasm. This blush is such a pretty pinky-peach shade with a glow. I love love love this blush because it adds the perfect amount of color to this look and pulls everything together. 
Last but not least! Set your face with your favorite makeup setting spray! I am loving the coverfx illumining setting spray at the moment. It adds even more glow to the skin without making you look oily. It just makes your skin look very dewy and healthy.  Hope you guys enjoyed this little makeup tutorial.
