    I never do the bronzed skin look but love the look. I guess I think that it would probably look to obvious on me.
    Shimmery eyes is great and also, sparkly hair accessories and flowers really look pretty.
    Glossy lips always looks great, especially when its cold out!
    I love the look of glittered toes, looks great on top of a french manicure..very divalicious 😉

    I’ve recently started doing the bronze look and I love love love it!! I have one of those bronzers with different color lines and when you blend them together they’re perfect. I also use certain colors for eye shimmer too.
