summer favourites series: part two

When it comes to summer makeup, I love bronze, gold, and brown tones. They can look so effortless but still bring a ton of glamour.

Last summer I frequently used Tarina Tarantino's Sparklicity Bronze Palette. As summer creeps closer, I find myself going back to it. There is a range of light shimmery colours, browns, golds, and even a gorgeous turquoise. The colour pigmentation is good and there is little fall out. They last quite well, also, which is a necessity for summer!


"Influenced by soaring Moorish architecture and dusty Turkish horizons, Sparklicity Bronze conjures up images of sun drenched vistas and regal exoticism. Dazzling geometric tiling from the famed Topkapi Palace inspires this sophisticated update of summer colors. Shimmering neutrals, misty golds, and soft oasis blue lure you eastward on this elegant voyage." 
—XOXO, Tarina Tarantino, jewelry designer and makeup artist

This palette is just perfect for summer! I recently used the turquoise colour with some of the deep, red-ish gold colour and the shimmery white on the bottom row to create a beautiful look for an outdoor concert. This was the result:


For summer makeup, consider going bronze!

What is your favourite kind of summer makeup?

  10. Love the look!

    Summer is definitely all about that glowing look.

    I love golds and bronzes but find it hard to use it daily unless it's for a night out.

    Love Txx

  23. I love gold/bronze tones too, but since i am a novice when it comes to make-up, i am quite unsure if it suits my Asian skin; yellowish-tone.

  27. The bronzer looks great on you! I try to keep it simple makeup wise during summer since I hope to see the freckles come out on my cheeks! :) Since I already have lash extensions, I merely use some powder, bronzer and maybe some rouge.
    Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog!
