BRONZED SUMMER CORAL GLOW

I have been wearing a muted nude lipstick and natural makeup look for some time now, I feel like this warmer weather is giving me life to try something different than the norm. With the hot temperatures at their peak, it was time for my makeup to also look the part and adapt accordingly. I headed off on a shopping trip to Sephora and was on the hunt for a perfect Summer-time makeup vibe. This just so happened to be by accident when I discovered new colors and products to fall in love with at Sephora. Naturally, I can get lost in there for hours, to my luck this look came together quite beautifully and effortlessly.

Luxury Summer Makeup

Armani Luminous Silk Skin

Giorgio Armani Luminious Silk Foundation

Since I first tried the iconic Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, it has become my top favorite foundation this year. How it elevates and enhances my natural complexion beautifully, the color I am wearing is 7 and it blends seamlessly with my natural skin tone. The texture feels silky, and it goes on for a medium coverage, yet at the same time it’s lightweight. It appears almost as if I am not wearing any foundation at all, perfect for warmer temperatures. From my experience wearing it all day, I would suggest that it works best with a setting powder for a longer-lasting result. If you haven’t tried this foundation yet, it is certainly worth the try.

Bronzer + Setting Powder

The bronzer I used was the HOURGLASS Ambient Lighting Bronzer in shade Radiant Finish and then I used my HOURGLASS Veil Translucent Setting Powder in the area under my eyes. Also, anywhere I felt may have been too dewy. Just to remember the goal is to look fresh and glowing, not sweaty! This veil is ultra-refined made with light-reflecting particles to help blur imperfections. It also leaves an invisible flawless finish and blurs the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and pores. I also don’t get any camera flashback when taking a photo in light, so you can see my skin without a white cast reflecting. Ambient Lighting Bronzer is applied just like a contour, along my cheeks and forehead along with the tip of my nose, it blends perfectly with a radiant and healthy natural sun-kissed glow finish. If it says illuminating, radiant, glowing or sun-kissed anything like that, we tend to associate that with a healthy and desireable complexion.

I LIVE FOR SOLAR CORAL LIPS

I knew I wanted something that can liven things up a bit and give me all the summer feels that I desire. Usually, I would go for a more muted tone of coral and call it a day, but I wanted something that is vibrant just as it is exciting. After trying on a few new lip colors by HOURGLASS cosmetic, I had found The One and it was called “I Live For – Vibrant Coral”. How fitting! The color came from the Confession Ultra Slim High Intensity Refillable Lipsticks by HOURGLASS cosmetics. Also, I added the HOURGLASS Unreal High Shine Volumizing Lip Gloss in color Solar. These two paired together admirably for an extra juicy lip and I couldn’t get over how pretty it looked on.

Bronze + Gold Eyes

Now for the eyes, I wanted to keep the theme going with bronze and warm golden tone to bring the look together flawlessly. Just for the record, I am not a MUA, so my eye makeup requires more time and effort for me to do. LANCÔME has one of the most lovely eye makeup pallets called “Destination Sunshine”, my grandmother had gifted to me. I used the pearly white shade to highlight in the inner eye, the gold was used in the middle area of my lid, and I blended the bronze in the middle to top and exterior part of my eyelid. Nothing is special about how I apply my eyeshadow. Truly, I’ve never been amazing at doing eyeshadow, plus I have hooded lids which makes it more challenging to put on.

Lashes + Brows

The eyeliner I have been using is REVLON COLORSTAY, just applying a light winged eye helps define and border my eyes. Lashes, I opt for voluminous and lifted, whist formulated to nourish for smudge-free and long-lasting result. I found that Benefit Cosmetics has a perfect long-wearing mascara called Roller Lash and it’s everything I want in a mascara without the clumpy results. I have tried a few different brow pencils and the best one I have come to like E.L.F Brow Pencil, it is not only affordable but easy to put on and comes with a brow brush to have nicely shaped brows.

This finishes the breakdown of my take on a vivacious Bronzed Summer Coral Glow, and it’s not your average tame coral look. Let this look be the confident hot girl summer, with vibrant summer days that to turn into unforgettable cabana nights.

However, I fell in love with the bright and vibrant colors. It never hurts to try something new and bold, you never know you might fall in love with them on too!

    1. Thank you so much! You are right it is so uplifting trying something new, I’ve never tried a coral/orange lip before. Believe it or not, I usually don’t venture too for out of my comfort zone. But this look, it was something quiet fun to put together.
