A bronze shade can be intimidating to use as a day makeup but don’t underestimate the versatility of this metallic shade because it is a stand-alone beauty staple that you can pull off without using more eye makeup. It is also a perfect item to have for summer if you are aiming for a subtle and fresh-looking makeup that is associated with fall beauty.

To keep filling in the box why bronze is timeless and suitable to all skin tones here are four makeup looks that you should try and be fall-faced ready!

Keep It Minimal

Who says bronze is not suitable for day time makeup? A hint of bronze doesn’t need to be dramatic especially if you are going through important day errands and you don’t have the luxury of time to do full glam makeup.

All you have to do is choose the bronze shade that is darker than your skin tone and blend it with your warm fingertips or a fluffy brush depends on how you do your eye makeup. You can skip your trusty eye mascara if you are in a hurry. This look creates a soft daytime glam that will accentuate your eye color.


Eye Shadows come in many forms and consistency. For this minimal look,
we suggest you try these cult-favorite eye products.
pro tip

Make a good impression with this fade-resistant eye shadow that claims to last for a good period of time. The creamy formula glides like powder and velvety finish once it lands to your eyes.

MAC Eye Shadow ($17.00) in amber lights

It is characterized by a light-medium copper with a little hint of strong warm gold shimmer that leaves a breathtakingly beautiful metallic finish. It is highly pigmented with a light creamy texture that diffuses well on bare skin.

Pair It with the All-Time Favorite Cat-Eye Look

Take the classic cat-eye look to a new dimension. Use a black shadow in your eye palette or a kohl eyeliner to create a cat-eye look and soften the lines with an angled brush or a Q-tip. This technique blends well with bronze makeup and if you just want to emphasize your eyes and not looking like a raccoon trying to cope up with last night’s hangover.

The “Wet Look” Makeup

Nowadays, achieving a wet look makeup is not that hard as it seems because there are available pot shadows that are highly packed with shimmers and glossy texture to the skin. Go all out and try this fashion runway makeup trend with a shimmery bronze color.

This look is good for special occasions that you need to strut your heels and be red-carpet-ready.

Pro tip: If you don’t have a pot cream shadow, you can simply apply a matte copper shadow and dust it all over your lids and add a tiny drop of clear lip gloss to your eyes and finish the look with mascara.

If you want to purchase a cream shadow pot we recommend you try, E.L.F Smudge Pot Cream Eyeshadow ($3.00) back to basics. It went on as a cream and the product is buildable if you want to tone it down or make it too blinding for your liking.

If your feeling boujee, you can splurge on Tom Ford Cream Color for Eyes ($46.00) in Sphinx. It is described as a sherbet hue that gives a three-dimensional effect on the eyes due to its holographic tinge.

Alluring Yet Edgy

Whenever you are having a night out with your girlfriends, the smoky eye look is your go-to makeup look to call it a day. To add a little sparkle, you might want to try it with copper eyeshadow to keep your look sophisticated but ready to party!

Pro tip: Get this look by using a fluffy and crease eye brush to apply and blend the shadow evenly. Apply the metallic color from your lash line up until your crease and blend it with your brush.

To create a successful smoky eye, dust a darker shade into your crease and gently blend it in circular motions to get rid of the harsh lines and leave a gradual ombre effect. Top it off with a killer winged eyeliner and you are good to party and sip your favorite cocktails with your friends.

Try NYX Professional Makeup Ultimate Shadow Palette ($13.00). It has 16 shades that you can enjoy with different textures and finishes that will make your eyes stand out from the rest.
