Let's be honest, runway beauty trends aren't always the most wearable. And as much as we love mixing things up with coloured eyelids and graphic eyeliner, it's nice to see a trend arise from the runways that works for when you're in the mood for something a bit more subdued. We're talking about the glowing bronze eyeshadow at the recent autumn/winter shows. Seen everywhere from Chanel (metallic and made for parties) to Isabel Marant (understated and offset by a natural lip), the bonus is it works perfectly for summer, too (ideal for showing off that beer-garden glow). Taking beauty inspo from the runway to the 'gram, we’ve decoded your summer beauty look for you. Get ready to bronze.
BEAUTY TREND: BRONZE EYESHADOW
By Grace Cook, 25 July 2018
The Chanel catwalk was awash with beauty experimentation, but the standout look was the neutral bronze worn with minimal makeup for a fresh glow. Tied-up hair proved the perfect accompaniment to show off the shimmer – this look is one you can pull out of the bag when you’re strapped for time, or after a long lazy day at the beach before you head to the bar.
No one pulls off that fresh, bronzed look quite like ASOS Insider Sophia – take a leaf out of her beauty bible and pair a bronzed eye with a flick of liner and a strobe of highlighter to make that complexion shimmy in the sun.

MAC’s shimmery bronze eyeshadow is the perfect addition to your makeup bag – it can be used wet or dry, so can be layered to create a dramatic metallic look as easily as it can nail the subtle and smoky look. And the goldy-brown shade is flattering on all skintones, so you’re guaranteed to love it.
