How to Get the Bronze Shimmer Look (Proceed With Caution!)
The face of the S/S 2008 shows was all about bronze shimmer, and wouldn't it be the perfect beauty look for Karen's DvF Orioti strapless maxi dress? Its so 'resort', I can't think of a more chic way to go. We started with showing off her stunning find as beautifully modelled by her, then offered suggestions for accessorising, and finally, the make-up.
The video here is from Vogue TV's Trend Watch. I think the eyeshadow is a bit heavy for a wedding, so lets tone it down. Instead, sweep a gold or bronze shadow over the lid and brow bone and finish with a cream shade under the brow. And the best blush for this look (and a staple of any make-up bag) is Nars Orgasm. It's a rich-looking peach with a subtle gold shimmer. You'll blush just asking for it!
You'll want to proceed with caution when applying bronze powders - use a very light hand so you glow, as opposed to streaking and staining and prompting strangers to come at your face with a moist towelette.
Oh, and if you haven't seen the SATC Movie yet and plan to, you may want to skip the trailer at the end of the video, there are a couple minor spoilers.
Putting this look together has been loads of fun, hopefully we'll get to see Karen's polished look as debuted on her big night out (nudge nudge, wink wink). No red wine near that dress, now!
