A Bronzed, Glowing Makeup Look with Sephora


This post is sponsored by Sephora.

Bring on SUMMER! I’m kidding.

Kind of.

I am so ready for sunshine and warmth, but summer here in North Carolina lasts forever so I truly don’t want it to start TOO early.

The great news is I can fake a summer glowing bronzy makeup look thanks to a bunch of products from Sephora. I got my hands on the newly released Anastasia DIPBROW gel and dang it I have another brow product that I can’t live without now.

You can watch a video tutorial that walks through this makeup look below, but I just want to quickly mention that if you aren’t signed up as a Beauty Insider member at Sephora, you can do that by clicking here. It doesn’t cost anything, and there is no obligation to buy anything, you simply get to be a part of a program that offers discounts, promotions, and other benefits at Sephora.

Back to the makeup look, I kept the eyeshadow really simple by just using 1 shade of the Bobbi brown eyeshadow crayon in nude beach. I also did a very thin line of Kat Von D eyeliner in Mad Max Brown just at the base of my lashes so the mascara could do all the work of making the eyes pop.

In the video I demonstrated how I mixed together the Nars Super Radiant Booster (it’s limited edition) with the Nars Sheer Glow foundation (I wear shade Salzburg) to create a glowy base to the skin. It’s a pretty way to amp up any glow or reflection in a foundation, and not cover it all just using it as a primer.

My lipstick is Peche by Bite, and it just felt right to top off the glowing makeup look. Since the eyes were kept fairly simple and neutral, I liked the saturated watermelon red shade on the lips!

    I love the look, Kate! I think it’s one of my favourites from you. The red lippie just tops it off perfectly! 🙂

    Any chance you could do a brow tutorial? Mine are awful and I feel like no matter what I do to fill them, they still look horrific. I’m seriously considering microblading, but would definitely appreciate some guidance in the brow department!

    I love the red lip! It looks so glamorous! When I think of a red lip I typically think of a Snow White ascetic, but this bronzer look is even better I think!
    Thanks for the great tips!

    Hello there, this look is adorable! I love the simple and sweet eye, looks very achievable. I just went to purchase the Bobbi Brown stick at Sephora. Unfortunaly, they don’t have that color…in your option what is the next closest color?

      You know what, I can’t find it either! I have no clue how that happened. I bought it in store at Sephora less than a month ago! Sorry for the hassle. I’d try Sand Dune, that looks very similar!

    Can you recommend a substitute for the Kat Von D eyeliner please? I am unwilling to support a celebrity who is outspoken about supporting anti-vaccination.

    You’ve got me HOOKED on Nars Sheer Glow foundation! Best foundation I’ve ever used. So thankful for your recommendation. I also just got the watermelon bronzing lotion and of course I am obsessed with that too. You make the best recommendations. I’m fair skinned with light hair also, so I’m eager to try this eyebrow product.

    I love this look. I’m trying to get the hang of using bronzer. Which shade of Hoola did you use for this look?

    Hi Kate! Thanks for doing this tutorial. I love this fresh glowing look. I especially like how you keep your eyes very simple. I get overwhelmed when trying to use multiple eye shadow colors. Can you recommend a similar eye shadow to the one you used here at a slightly lower price point? My husband put me on a budget. LOL!Thanks again!

    Did you mean Sand Dune for the eye shadow crayon? They don’t have the color you mentioned in the link. Thx!

      I can’t find it online or in store anymore, I don’t know how this happened! I just bought it in store a few weeks back! If I find it, I’ll share!

    Beautiful! I love how copper brings out blue eyes.

    Was curious… there wasn’t a link to the highlighter, and the latest hourglass ambient highlighter comes in different shades, and wasn’t sure if those would look as natural. So a request for a review video on natural looking highlights please! Other vlogs you see on the web are just to bright and fake looking. Love your site!

      Sorry about that! I love Luminous Light in Hourglass’ highlighter. I agree so many highlights look WAY too intense–thats a good idea for an upcoming blog post! 🙂

    Peche means peach I believe.
