Super Glam, Super Bronzed

When people think of a glam makeup look, they often think about a fancy cat eye, glittery eyeshadow or even a bold lip. However, this isn’t always the case. You can create a super glam, super bronzed look that’s still natural looking but don’t be fooled, a lot of makeup still goes into this!

What’s great about the look I’ve created here is that it can be mixed up to suit your look. So you can stick to it how it is and it’ll go with pretty much any dress, occasion or hair style. However, it can easily be interchanged to have a little liner, lipstick or blusher to change it up for the look you’re going for.

This personally is one of my go-to glams, especially on those evenings where you haven’t decided what to wear so do your makeup first. If it is I end up wearing something all black – which is normally the case, I can easily throw on a bright lip to change it up.

Do you have a go to makeup for when you’re really not sure what to wear? I’d love to know!
