Who says getting bronze is indicative of being third place? Ok, the Olympic committee. While we won’t argue their decision when it comes to achievement in sports, we will say that if you want to be first place in your winter makeup looks, bronze is the hue to adopt. Its metallic sheen gives just the right amount of shine, allowing you to adopt dark bronze colors for day as well as night. Lighter shades let you channel gold without looking as if you’re trying to emulate Oscar on his pedestal.
The color is rich, earthy and sumptuous, goes well with gorgeous jewel tones like emerald and amethyst, and it happens to be available in a variety of price points and locations. So whether you’re going to drop $50 on a compact or $15, you can definitely work bronze into your makeup bag this season. We’ve provided 19 products we want to take home with us from full on bronze glitter pots and temporary eye tattoos to more subtle shadows and finishing powders. Before you check it out, here’s a final missive: bronze also happens to be the shade of glowing health, something we can all delight in during frosty weather.
