There’s not many looks that I experiment when either in a rush or don’t want to spend long getting ready. It’s either a wing liner, bright lip or as in this case, simply a bronzed face with a nude lip.
What I love about this look is that it doesn’t give the impression that you’ve tried but you still look fabulous! It’s perfect for nipping out to the shops and it’s a great work makeup as it takes less than 15 minutes to do, less than 10 if you really nail it. So without further ado, here’s how to do it..
