Your Guide to 2010 Bronze Beauty

Bronze seems to be the number one color this Summer! It’s perfectly fitting.  We’ll be laying out in the sun, some of us hoping for a tan, other staying away in hopes to use their fall/winter foundation.  Bronze always works wonderfully on all skin tones, ages and seasons.  Here are some of the newest bronze products out on the market!

It’s about time that I step up my Urban Decay usage.  I swatch it in Sephora, and see all the cool rocker chicks wearing it. Chopper was the color that I had to have 5 or 6 years ago.  But this Summer of Love palette ($29) might be my first eye shadow purchase!  I love the mix of neutrals with the pop of color.  You can never go wrong with a set like this!Shades include Chopper, Maui Wauie, Smog and Flash.

One of my favorite underrated brands is coming out with a Bronze box of color! In Totally Bronze For Eyes and Cheeks ($24, available in April), You’ll get three limited edition bronze eye shadows and a bronzer. These shadows are department store quality and not easy to find! Don’t miss out! I won’t!

Contrary to popular belief, Estee Lauder isn’t just for grandma. The Bronze Goddess Collection includes all of the beautiful shades that give that pop of color for the skin.  Liquid eyeshadows in shades from bronze to blue, and gloss sticks are the perfect inclusion for the heat! ($17.50-$19)

The Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Bronzing Gel ($28.50) delivers a smooth glow for the face.  I’m never really sure how products like this work on brown skin, but it’s worth a shot!

MAC came out with Spring Color Forecast 4 about a month ago, and it’s loaded with Bronzy goodness. The collection includes an eye shadow quad, lipsticks, lipglass, nail lacquer and a blush ombre. ($14-$32.50)

Guerlain Terracotta Touch ($40) is a great way to brighten your look. Just day a bit over dark circles, fine lines and shadows to diffuse them.  Use with or without foundation!
