Bronze and Glow

Dewy, supple, luscious skin is a continuous trend. I mean who wouldn’t mind having this all year long?

Add a hint of pearlescent shimmer and a touch of bronze for a healthy, fresh off the beach glow. You can apply the same principle to your eye-shadow using sunset tones of peach and bronze to add a boost of radiance and warmth!
