Sun-kissed skin, stained lips with a vibrant colour, and bright-smouldering eyes… All the makeup you need to get this Summer started!

Step 1; Softly sculpt your face with Estee Lauder’s Bronze Goddess Bronzer to give a beautiful sun-kissed look. Use Napoleon’s Reflective Contour Brush 20b to blend the bronzer evenly through your contours and down your neck.

Step 2; Use rich, warm bronze tones on your eyes like Becca Cosmetic’s Antique Bronze Shimmer Eyeshadow for a sunny Summer finish. Perfect for enhancing those baby blues and making your tan sizzle. Tip; Estee Lauder’s Contouring Shadows Brush #30 will give you the right angle to blend the shadow along the lash line and up into the contour. Use the shorter edge of the bush along the lash line to build intensity, and the longer bristles will help blend the edges in the contour.

Step 3; Fill and extend your brows with a taupe shaded brow pencil to open and elongate the eyes. My go-t0 is YSL Brow Pencil in Ash. Note; Don’t forget to make good use of the brow brush on the end to brush your brows up.

Step 4; Grow thick, long, luscious lashes with Revlon’s Lash Potion Mascara. Curl your lashes beforehand to make eyes look bigger and lashes look longer.

Step 5; Stain your lips with a velvety finished lipstick to go the miles and contrast against your skin tone. I used Model Co’s Party Proof Lipstick in Coachella Crush to finish this look. Note; To perfect the edges and make your lips look bigger, apply lipstick with a brush. Try Mecca Cosmetics Retractable Lip Brush. Tip; I only use retractable lip brushes as they are mess free and can be loaded up for touch ups.  


Step 6; You will have everyone thinking you have just returned from a tropical holiday when you try out this trend. Apply Ella Bache Great Moussetan in a circular motion with a mitt. Give 3-4 hours developing time before rinsing. Blend JBronze Instant Shimmer Illuminiser over your tan right before you go out to make skin glow with rich-golden highlights.
