THE CONCEPT: Launching alongside high summer fashion, Topshop Make Up’s NEW Bronzing Collection introduces a palette of tonal bronze shades that sculpt, highlight and enhance higher planes of the face. Formulas melt into skin to give the illusion of an illuminated veil, liquid gold with subliminally creamy textures.
PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS: The star of summer make up, the NEW Bronzing Brick is an embossed trio of bronze shades to illuminate an brighten the higher planes of face, blendable spherical powders glide on easily to leave skin glowing.
MAKE UP ARTIST KNOW HOW: ‘I love this and I’ve already used it on my last few shoots. After sculpting the face with the matte bronzer, sweep over the three colours with a large brush, pat off excess product on the back of your hand and apply to cheek, temples, up onto your forehead and even a little on the nose for a sun kissed glow. With a smaller brush you can then use the individual colours on the eye. This product really brings the skin alive and enhances your tan.’ Hannah Murray, Topshop Make Up Consultant
NEW All Over Glow is liquid luminescence for the face & body, delivering an LA glow that has a lightweight fluidity to its formula with a blendable, soft and bouncy texture. Rich in superfine, multi-reflecting pearls, light rebounds off skin for a polished beauty that radiates in the sunlight. Applied directly to the higher planes of the face or mix with foundation for a sheer, illuminated beauty, the multi functional All Over Glow is London’s answer to LA bronze.
Get that LA glow!
‘For Gisele-like glowing limbs mix a little of this into your body moisturiser and apply all over. It makes skin appear flawless and your body leaner as the light hits it. An old-school Hollywood trick! I then like to intensify the highlight on the shin bone, shoulders and collarbone with another layer straight from the tube.’ Hannah Murray, Topshop Make Up Consultant
The ultimate NEW Matt Bronzer is designed to shape, contour and warm the complexion. Developed in two super luxe shades, this versatile compact powder is formulated with mineral pigments and treated with silicone oil and rice starch for the perfect colour pay off with a lightweight, silky texture.

‘These beautiful Matte Bronzers effortlessly sculpt the face without looking heavy. For foolproof sculpting, apply the bronzer tracing the number “3”; starting from the temples sweep around and underneath cheekbone, then around and beneath jawline without taking the brush off the face. Killer cheekbones in one move!’ Hannah Murray, Topshop Make Up Consultant
