S/S 2014 beauty trend: boho bronze
Models at the spring/summer 2014 shows had sun-kissed skin, flushed cheeks and warm tones to give them a just-back-from-holiday glow. This look is all about a natural-looking wash of subtle colour across noses, cheeks, temples and brows, to give models a healthy, outdoorsy look that is casual, not contrived.
These looks were seen at the likes of Chloe, JW Anderson and Emilio Pucci and yes, you can achieve them yourself. Invest in some of these products from MAC and you will have the essential items for creating that summer sun-kissed look.
MAC Pro-sculpting Cream (£18)
A cream-to-powder formula for sculpting and shaping key features. Silky-smooth, easy-to-blend and neutrally shaded. Apply where extra dimension is needed, including the eyelids. Provides moist, skin-soothing, natural-looking, sheer-to-medium buildable coverage.
MAC Cream Colour Base (£15)
Versatile and multi-purpose, Cream Colour Base can be applied directly to bare skin, or layered over foundation, moisturiser or powder. Apply with a brush, sponge or fingers. Aim for tones that will give you a sun-kissed look, such as bronze or bamboo.
MAC Pro Longwear (£25)
Provides ten-hour wear in a light-weight cream compact, perfectly suited for touch-ups on the go. Glides on comfortably, with a natural matte finish and broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection. Provides sheer to medium coverage.
MAC Mineralize Moisture SPF15 Foundation (£27)
A combination of powders creates an optical blurring effect that virtually diminishes imperfections and fine lines for a more even tone. The light-reflecting, natural satin finish makes skin appear refined, revitalised and refreshed with a new purity, softly lit from within. SPF15 adds the perfect finishing touch of sun protection.
MAC Casual Colour (£18)
Versatile, light-weight all-in-one colour for cheeks and lips. A creamy, super-blendable, barely there formula. Contains vitamin E to help keep skin and lips nourished.
Admittedly, these items are a bit pricey but they are investment pieces that can be worn all year round.
