Accentuate your summer tan with a gorgeous monochromatic bronzed look! Start our applying the bronzer from the Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder duo to your cheekbones, forehead, and across the nose. Then take a smaller brush and contour the crease of the eye.  Apply the blush to your cheeks on top of the bronzer for that lit-from-within glow. Next, apply our Cream Eyeshadow in Bronzed to the lid and blend until the line is completely diffused. Swipe on some Black Waterproof Lengthening and Defining Mascara and our Mineral Lipgloss in Trendsetter. How easy was that?

This is the perfect way of showing my summer tan although summer is coming to an end.. I love the contouring blush and bronzing powder on my face! I also love the waterproof mascara, it gives a lot of volume to my lasher.

i'm very pale, but putting a small amount of bronzer around my face with the e.l.f kabuki brush gives me that summer bliss look. Thanx e.l.f for the affordable make up!

Wow, I love elf's bronzers! I am pretty pale, so they are perfect for me (especially at $3)! No matter how hard I try, I can't get a tan going, so I love to put some along my jawbone to get a glow on my face. :) I love using it to "contour the crease of my eyes", too! Thanks, elf for making such great products!!!

Love the eyeshadows but the eyebrow pencil and liquid eyeliners are not worth your time. But I guess I got what I paid for.

I love the liquid eyeliners. I have had no issues with them. I also prefer to top the blush with the bronzer than the other way around. That gives more of a blended glow, where putting blush on top can look less blended.

I love the blush and bronzing duo, it's the perfect way to accent my summer tan as I know it will fade soon. Hopefully I won't look too silly in the winter time with a perfectly sunkissed face

Thanks Patti! I will definitely try it! Where's Achelle? I have a suggestion for you guys at e.l.f. I think your next product should be a makeup tool called mascara guard. I've seen other versions on youtube of companies where they are plastic tools that go under your eye or on top so when you are applying mascara, it doesn't get on your eyelid or under your eye. I think that for elf to make them cheaper and not to copy the same version, you should make them out of paper in an almost one size fits all sort of thing.

I've always had a hard time trying to get bronzers to look natural on my skin. I'm expecting some brushes in the mail and I'm going to try again since this entry inspired me!

I absolutely LOVE E.L.F. make up now. I picked up some must haves at the grocery store and have just made a whole order packed with all the greatest I could find. Wasn't hard, there's so much you offer. Thanks to this blog post I now may try some bronzer in my next order following these directions. Thank you E.L.F. for the best products I've ever seen in my life!

Although the "bronzed" look is typically thought of as the summer tanned look, there is nothing more beautiful than seeing this type of facial "bronzed" look in the late fall and winter while wearing ivory or beige sweater, blouse, or coat & scarf. A "bronzed" look is all year round. So glad E.L.F. makeup is there for us...all year round, too!

I love elfs bronzer and blush duo and I am especially in love with their mineral lip glosses. They compare to or exceed most of the higherend brands. Keep up the good work from one of your loyal elffettes.

I am very pale, sun doesn't work for me. I've never been good at using bronzer, but I've never had instruction on how to do it and look right. I will definitly try this because having some color in the summer would be nice!

I am currently using a medication to treat severe R.A. It has been a blessing. However, it has left my complexion D-U-L-L! I now have that glow that used to light up a room by using the E.L.F. Contouring Blush and Bronzing duo. Oprah says it well, I CAN have the look for less. Thanks E.L.F. =)
