Get the Look: Gold Rush

No time for a vacation?  Fake a summer glow with shimmering bronze makeup shades.  This versatile look can be adapted to fit any warm-weather occasion, from a black tie wedding to a bonfire on the beach.

Step 1

After applying your foundation and concealer, push the button at the end of the Lancôme Star Bronzer All Over Magic Bronzing Brush to dispense product, then tap the brush into a tissue to get rid of any excess.  For the most believable glow, sweep across areas of your face that the sun hits naturally—the apples of your cheeks, the bridge of your nose, and the top of your forehead.


Step 2

Following the application guide that comes in the compact, apply Lancôme’s Color Design 5 Shadow & Liner Palette in Bronze Amour.  Start with a wash of the palest shade across lids, and apply the others as labeled.  For daytime, skip the crease color.  For an evening look, tap the shadow onto lids to get maximum shimmer payoff.


Step 3

A bronze smoky eye is particularly striking on those with blue or green eyes.  To make eyes pop even more, a navy pencil liner like Lancôme Le Crayon Khôl EyeLiner in Black Lapis will create a cool contrast against the golden shades.  Curl lashes, and finish with one coat of Lancôme Hypnôse Custom Volume Mascara in Black.


Step 4

A swipe of Lancôme Juicy Tubes Lipgloss in Miracle completes the look.
