Supplies:

  • BB cream
  • Full-coverage concealer
  • Bronzer
  • Blush
  • Eyelid primer
  • Shimmery pearl eyeshadow
  • Matte brown eyeshadow
  • Pencil brush
  • Gold eyeshadow
  • Blending brush

Instructions:

Step 1

Bronzed beauty Step 1 : prep skin

Prep the skin with BB cream. This will act as a foundation but will allow your skin to breathe through the makeup, preventing breakouts by not blocking pores. BB cream has many benefits from SPF to moisturizing the skin. Apply a full-coverage concealer to hide any imperfections and dark circles. After BB cream is set, apply bronzer and blush.
