Bronzed and Natural Makeup with MUFE*

In the dreariness of the winter season, I would totally give anything to just jet away to a tropical island and get my tan on while being surrounded by pina coladas and margaritas. HOWEVER, being also close to my due date, that is quite impossible! The next best thing to pick me up?? MAKEUP!! Don't laugh, everyone has their own thing that helps pick their spirits up, mine is clearly makeup :) 

Anyways, I thought that the perfect look I could create would be a bronzed and natural look featuring one of my favorite brands, Make Up For Ever. I will be using some of the new products they sent me - which is the Bronzer, Blushes and the Aqua XL Color Paint. I utlized my existing MUFE products to create a complete look - for step by step instructions just keep on reading below!

Products used: 
1. Foundation - Water Blend Face & Body Foundation (Y405) - $54 cad*
2. Concealer - Ultra HD Concealer (Y33) - $34 cad*
3. Artist Face Color Highlight, Sculpt and Blush Powder  (B208 & S310) - $29 cad each*
4. Aqua XL Color Paint (L-54) - $31 cad*

6. Pro Bronze Fusion Bronzer (20M) - $43 cad*
7. Pro Light Fusion Highlighter (1 Golden Pink) - $48 cad*
8. Various Make Up For Ever Eyeshadows

The steps in how I created the eye look are listed above and since creating this look, they have reformulated the shadows and can be found here. The shadows before already blended effortlessly, but I heard that the new ones are even more finely milled, buttery and pigmented so I can't wait to give it a try. 

As for the products used on the face ~ if you are a lover of sheer to medium buildable foundations, then the Water Blend foundation is perfect for you. It is weightless on the skin but gives it a nice even coverage/finish. The bronzer was the one thing I was most excited to try - it almost has a hard gel-powder finish that makes bronzer not look powdery at all - it just gives you a natural glow and no matter how much you put on, you still won't look like an oompa loompa cakeness. I love it and it thoroughly lives up to its reputation! It comes in 6 shades so you are bound to find one that will suit you. 

The blushes are pigmented and buttery smooth that you barely need to dip your brush in more than once to deposit color to your cheeks. In addition, the blushes are so finely milled that it almost feels like it becomes one with your skin and melts onto it. 

I hope you enjoy this look that I've created - it's a bronzed natural look hopefully helping you trick those around you that you just came back from a tropical getaway!

Until next time, XO - M.
