Ronzer has proven time and time again to be one of the most versatile makeup products – anyone can use it. From light complexions, light brown to auburn to bronze and olive options, there are plenty of ways to enhance your daily makeup and spice it up a bit.
Whether you use it to shape cheekbones, as an eyeshadow or blush or as an all-purpose powder, the bronzer is here to stay and we absolutely approve of it. Next, we’ve rounded up some of the coolest bronze makeup looks for you to use as inspiration.
With bronze elements on the eyes, cheeks and lips, this makeup demonstrates how versatile the bronzer is and how you can use it for anything your heart desires. Skin is beautifully shaped with both bronzer and highlighter, while smoky bronze eyes really make a red carpet statement.
Clear and red
A beautiful, healthy glow is never a bad idea, and as you can see, bronzer can be used to create even the most beautiful skin tones for an eye-catching look. Repeat this look by applying light brown to cheeks instead of blush and creases with a soft brush; take your skin to a new level in no time. The champagne color in the inner corners of the eye gives a subtle glow and helps brighten things up.
Bronzer and contouring together? Yes thanks. The bronzer can be used in countless ways and it’s a good idea to avoid redness altogether and instead use your cheekbones to highlight and add hydration.
Matte bronzers are ideal for contouring as they are able to sculpt facial features without too much shine, and this cheekbone contoured is a perfect example of how this is possible. You can also use the same powder in the creases of the eyelids for quick and easy eyeshadow application.
Bronzer doesn’t always have to be bright or shiny. Opaque formulas can produce great results, as shown here. The dull bronze shades in the eyes and cheeks give beautiful definition and complement each other well.
When it comes to bronzers, you should remember that it doesn’t always have to be a deep golden hue. This bronzer has subtle pink undertones that complement the skin perfectly.
Pair your bronzer with a bold lip for such a simple, yet combined look in every way. When it comes to bronze makeup, sometimes the simpler the better, and that’s certainly the case here. We absolutely love everything about this look, from the lips to the cheekbones to the brows – what a job well done.
Once the foundation is applied, create some depth and dimension to the face by blending a triple-shaped bronzing powder along the forehead, cheekbones and jaw for sculpting.
The bronze and earth tones give this makeup everything it needs to be successful and we give it two thumbs up. The makeup blends perfectly with the skin and eyes, and the pink-brown lipstick brings the masterpiece to life. Brush and fill in your brows to recreate this bold look, then add a liquid pencil to your upper lid for more definition.
The eyes have it
A mix of bronze and champagne eyeshadow blends beautifully here on the lids, giving the eye makeup a soft yet slightly smoky finish. This bronze eyeshadow looks bold with eyeliner and mascara, so it’s perfect for a special event or just for fun any day of the week. The contour is well done with a soft bronze hue and the lips have a beautiful nude shimmer.
Glow to it
A bronze glow paired with winged eyeliner and soft lips creates a look we could wear over and over again. The soft bronze tones complement the eyes and cheeks, while the liquid liner adds drama and depth. If you want to give yourself a tanned glow that looks natural, try Chantecaille’s Radiance Gel Bronzer. Mix your foundation or tinted moisturizer and apply it to your skin with a large, soft brush.
If it’s good enough for Beyoncé, it’s definitely good enough for us. The way she wears this bronze makeup is everything and more. Bronze shadows accentuate her lids (darker bronze eyeshadow in the crease), while bronze and highlights make her cheekbones pop. The lipstick shade is an ideal choice, because all the selected colors are harmonious with each other.
This look combines dewy, bronzed skin with a bold winged liner and soft nude lips – a look we never thought we’d need. A bold glow accentuates the cheekbones, while bronze tones subtly sculpt the face. It’s like Shay Mitchell is basking in the sun all day.
Add shine or dewiness to your makeup by applying gloss to the highest points of your face, such as the top of your cheekbones, under your browbones, and even your lips. When the light hits these areas of the face, it accentuates their glow and gives the desired dewy finish.
We love a good combination of blush and bronzer. This makeup is so fresh and vibrant and the skin glows. Shaded bronzes in the lids and creases give a nice proportion, while the bronzer and a hint of blush adapt best to the skin. We also need to know that shade of pink lipstick, obsession.
