FOTD. Subtle summery bronze X

Hey girlies! Today I wanted to try something a bit different with my makeup as summer is nearly here. So I ditched my matt eyeshadows and blush, opting for a bronzey shimmery look! Let me know what you think, and what look you were rocking today:

First of all I used concealer and foundation by Natural Collection, and I absolutely love them. They are super cheap but I love the coverage and finish it gives. Not at all drying, flaking or oily! Perfect for any combination skin types out there, like me. I use the fairest one they make which is actually a tiny bit dark if I'm not wearing any fake tan.

Next, I used the following products on my eyes:

I primed my eyelids with urban decay primer potion, then sweeped L'Oreal Chrome Shine shadow in Golden Rose all over the lid and up to the brow. I then took Benefit Gilded and lined my lid quite thickly, then blended that just on the lid and lined under my eyes with it. Next I just lined my top lid with L'Oreals black super liner, which I swear by! Lastly I used L'Oreal double extend mascara on my upper and lower lashes.

For my cheeks:

I contoured with St Tropez bronser, and then used my nat. collection blusher (not sure of the exact colour!), then highlighted / gave my cheeks a summery sheen with Mac's pigment in Rose. (ITs so gorgeous I feel I will be reaching for it a lot this summer)!

Next for my lips:

I always have really dry lips so I constantly have to apply lip balm of some kind, and always do before I put any lipstik on. So today I used softlips; flavour, Vanilla, smells lovely! Then Revlon lipstick in 001 Nude Attitude. Finally I sweeped a couple coats of No7 High Shine spf gloss in Smile, which I got as part of a gift set.

So that was my natural / shimmery face today! How about you girls??
