Sun-Kissed Bronze Makeup | With John Lewis

*sponsored content

I've partnered with John Lewis to bring you the perfect sun-kissed makeup look that is not only perfect for the last few weeks of Summer, but for transitioning into Autumn. I have pulled together a bunch of products, including Guerlain's Terracotta Bronzing Powder, YSL Rouge Volupte Shine lipstick, and YSL The Shock mascara but the main staple for my sun-kissed look is the new Urban Decay Naked Heat palette. This is a rich-tone eyeshadow palette that comes with a beautiful array of shades. Also to top off my Summer sun-kissed look, I have a gorgeous new fragrance to share with you. These past few weeks my go-to perfume has been Mon Guerlain by Guerlain. I'll talk more about this fragrance in a minute but first let's take a moment for the 'Naked Heat'.

Urban Decay's 'Naked' palettes are very popular worldwide with a bunch of them to choose from. I myself have the Naked 2, Naked 3 and the Naked Basics in my collection (all available here at I always enjoy using the 'Naked' palettes but I've never been so excited about one as much as I am for the Naked Heat. This is the newest to the 'Naked Series' and it's my favourite by far. The packaging is very pretty and complements the eyeshadows inside. It's quite a heavy palette but it feels very sturdy and durable. It comes with a large mirror which is handy for travelling. And it also comes with it's very own Urban Decay dual sided brush. The brush is actually very "usable" with a rounded side that is great for the outer V/corner of the eye, and a flat side which is perfect for packing colour onto the eye lid. It's surprising that this brush works well because many other palettes that come with a brush are usually hopeless. 

Inside the palette are 12 warm tone eyeshadows in a mix of matte and shimmer finishes. The pigmentation of these shadows are very good. The powders are very finely milled, making the shades blend seamlessly together. The only downside is that the shimmer shades need more help to really stand out. Wetting the brush with something like MAC Prep & Prime Fix+ or a setting spray will make them appear more shimmery. Overall this is a really stunning palette with a beautiful mix of warm-tone shadows. The palette is also very Autumnal with the rich brown/orange shades, so I know I'll be using this a lot more over the next few months.

I've put together a tutorial (below) using the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette and how to achieve this sun-kissed bronze makeup look. Hope you enjoy!

I really love this makeup look and hope you do too. Warm tones are right up my street, so I couldn't be more happier with the Urban Decay Naked Heat

Summer wouldn't be complete without a beautiful new scent, would it?! As I mentioned my go-to scent these past few weeks has been the new Mon Guerlain by Guerlain. This perfume is a tribute to today's femininity and it's inspired by the lovely Angelina Jolie. The curved bottle with "quadrilobe' shape stopper is very classy and the gold rim round the neck adds to it's elegance. It's such a strong oriental but fresh fragrance with raw materials: "Carla Lavender from Provence Sambac, Jasmine from India, Album Sandalwood from Australia and Vanilla Tahitensis from Papua New Guinea". With such beautiful floral notes, it's not only perfect for summer but all year round.
