The Dewy Bronzy Peachy Look

Here by popular demand my very first WOMF – that’s What’s on my Face to you and I. WOMF’s have been on my to do list for a while now, but there’s one reason I’ve avoided them – the dreaded selfie. I’m not very techy, I don’t have studio lighting and I don’t have anyone (capable) to take my head shots so you’ll have to make do with the selfie for now. I’ll call this one the dewy bronzy peachy look....


The base is pretty standard for me – I lightly buffed in MAC Mineralize Moisture Foundation NC30 with my beloved MAC Duo Fibre 130 brush. It gives a medium coverage and a very dewy finish (full review here). I applied some MAC Prep and Prime highlighter in Light Boost under my eyes and along the bridge of the nose, again buffing with the Duo Fibre brush. To finish I dabbed a little Mineralize Moisture Skinfinish Powder along the T zone to minimize the shine.
Next, the super product that is Sleek Face Form. This sculpts, bronzes and highlights (full review here). Using the Real Techniques Contour Brush I very lightly traced the brown powder under my cheeks to create something that resembles cheek bones and swept the bronzer around the usual places – hairline, temples, jawline, cheeks... you know the drill. I dabbed a tiny bit of the highlighter on the top of the tops of the cheekbones and rounded off with a pop of Milani Blush in Luminoso (from America) on the apples of the cheeks. It’s a beautiful glowy peach.
Keeping the eyes pretty simple I swept MAC Soba – my new do-it-all shade over the lids and paired with Maybelline Expression Kajal liner in Brown. As always I filled my brows with a touch of HD Brow palette and coated my lashes with a quick slick of L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara.
Lastly a swipe of MAC Shy Girl lipstick straight from the bullet and Voile... a peachy, dewy, bronzey face.

  2. Lovely! I haven't used Soba by MAC for ages, I forgot I had it and you're right, it's a great colour to wash over the lid!

    1. It is a very good foundation for that, it's very dewy and glowy. Ask your MAC counter for a little sample. x

  12. love this look! I just got luminoso recently and I'm obsessed with it. Shy Girl is a good ol stand by of mine but I'm also loving YSL Rouge Volupte #01 for a pinkier lip that looks beautiful with a bronzed look.
