How to Achieve a Summer Glowy & Bronzed Look

Hi lovelies,

Summer is the perfect season for a glowy, kissed-by-the-sun look! You know what I mean: soft smokey eyes, bronzer, highlighter, long lashes and sultry lips. Some say this should be easily achieved with just a couple of products. But that’s only if you’re already tanned, were born with long lashes, and you only need a few creamy sticks to get that look (Kim K, I’m lookin’ at you!).

For us regular people with imperfections, not tanned and not blessed with perfect facial features, we need a little more work (and a shitload of products) to make it happen.

So this is what I did the other day, I used my imagination and half of my make-up products to get a flawless skin, covered in bronzer and highlighter. And I couldn’t help but add a little eyeliner and a burgundy lipstick. Because, you know, why not? 😀

And let me be honest with you: whenever I do this kind of blog posts, to show you make-up looks, they never look as well on camera as they do in real life. And no, it’s not the camera’s fault, and neither is the lighting.

It’s just that you need to apply much more product that you normally would. A.k.a, I’m super happy with the pictures from this post, but I wouldn’t dare to go outside with that face! Trust me, it’s super noticeable when you go overboard with contouring or if you have 3 layers of foundation on.

So here’s my point: if you want to do a make-up look just for pictures, go crazy, girl! That’s the best tip I can give you. ‘Cause otherwise, it doesn’t really show up as well on camera. You could edit them, of course, but it’s not the same thing and sometimes it looks too fake.

Anyways, I hope you like this look! I’ve listed all the products I used below. Some of them are new entries in my make-up bag, and I’ll tell you more about them in future posts. And some are my staple items that I use all the time.

P.S. The flower crown is from H&M, I got it last week and it was super cheap. I know, it’s mainstream, lol, but don’t judge. I think it’s pretty, and it’s pink, so I had to buy it, okay? 😂 #LanaDelReyWannabe

    1. Multumesc frumos, Raluca! Sa stii ca nu rezista prea bine pe vremea asta :)) Dar daca folosesti un primer bun si un spray de fixare a machiajului, ar trebui sa rezolve problema. Eu il vad numai bun de purtat seara, la o terasa, cand se mai racoreste putin. Te pup, o zi faina!

  1. Machiajul pentru poze sau filmare trebuie intotdeauna sa fie mai intens, pentru ca se pierde din culoare si intensitate. Chiar daca IRL se vede wowza~ super misto, pe camera e cam meh. La fel si vice-versa, cu un machiaj mai heavy.
    Asa mi se mai intampla si mie cand imi iese un machiaj de zi cu zi super misto, iar cand fac poza, bre~ esti cam mediocru. :)) SI ajung sa nu-l postez, desi IRL arata demential.
    Asta e~ it’s frustrating, but we love it either way!
    Mie imi place mult ce ti-a iesit. L-am vazut prima data pe instagram, si am zis sa vad si postarea. I regret nothing~ ^_^

    1. Multumeeesc mult, Eva! Ma bucur tare mult ca iti place <3 Daaa, de multe ori mi s-a intamplat si mie sa nu se vada deloc machiajul in poze, cu toate ca arata super fain in realitate. Ce sa mai zic de look-ul meu obisnuit de zi pentru munca. Am mai incercat sa-l surprind pe Insta, dar zici ca e invizibil complet, cu toate ca folosesc si fond de ten, si blush, si de toate :)) Kisses
