Read further as Mellissa walks us through how she created the perfect bronze and gold makeup look for olive skin.
I am so thrilled to write this article for American Beauty Star! If my summer tan carries through to winter, I love to play it up with bronze and gold tones. They are oh-so-flattering on tanned skin and give a heavenly glow! Not to mention, we’re seeing this makeup look on many celebrities and top models.


To start, I even out my complexion by lightly dusting bronzing powder all over. Try to not go over-the-top with contouring! For this makeup look, I used the L’Oreal True Match Foundation and NARS Laguna Bronzing Powder.


Apply a cream gold eye shadow all over the eyelids using a flat eye shadow brush. Blend the edges for a smooth look. I used: Kiko Water Eye Shadow.



Apply a kohl eyeliner on the outer edges of the eyelid and on the lower lash line; smudge it for a smokey look. I used: Makeup Forever Black Kohl Pencil.



Apply bronze eye shadow all over and smoke it out until you get a very smudgy look. Don’t forget to apply it on the lower lash line. I used: Makeup Forever Artist Shadow.



Add a nude lipstick, with gold highlighter on your cheek bones, and you are ready to shine!
