The secret trick to sun-kissed perfection
All you need is a great bronzer and the right technique.
Keep the base as natural as you feel comfortable in. The NATURAL SATIN FOUNDATION gives a sheer coverage and leaves a dewy finish, but if you prefer slightly more coverage, opt for the ALL-DAY LIQUID FOUNDATION. Apply some concealer where you feel the need for extra coverage. Apply a neutral eyeshadow on your eyelids (use your favourites from the SMOKY NUDES Eyeshadow Palette), and then add a thin layer of the deep red eyeshadow, we used the SENSOURIUM EYE COLOUR in Heartquake. Apply some highlighter in the inner corner of your eye and on your Cupid’s bow. Curl your lashes and brush your brows. If you like – apply one coat of mascara and fill in your brows a little, but we prefer this look to be ”just from the beach” natural.
Choose a bronzer that matches your skin tone – or mix two to get your perfect shade. Apply with a brush, in a swiping motion, high up onto your cheekbones and on the top of the bridge of your nose.
Keep sweeping the brush from the highest point of your cheekbone and over your temples. You want to place the bronzer where the sun would give you the deepest tan.
To enhance the ‘just out of the sun’ look, give your lips a tanned and slightly swollen feel by applying lip balm and then using a fluffier brush (like an eyeshadow brush) to apply matte, red lipstick in a darker shade. For Athena, we used the MATTE LIP COLOUR in Red Haute.
If you’d like to add even more warmth to your face, apply some blush on the apple of your cheek.
