A glowing, ‘warm’ face has turned into a runway staple. It’s simple, striking, and has the right amount of glam to turn you into a head-turner. Here’s a step-by-step to ensure you look #LIT, always.
1. Prep the Canvas: We mean your face. Skip the foundation and cover up any imperfections with a concealer.
2. Add Colour: Bronzer has become a beauty staple—it adds warmth to your face in summer and helps correct any sallowness in winter. The general rule of thumb is to pick a shade that’s two shades darker than your skin tone, and that works well for medium tones. Fair skin tones can use a darker shade of highlighter for an all-over glow-meets-warmth, while brownish-red tones work for dark skin tones.
Just like highlighter, apply bronzer to the high points of your face, where the sun would naturally hit your skin using a fluffy face brush. Use the formula sparingly and add if need be. Pro tip: bronzers can also double as contour powders (but only the non-shimmer kinds).
3. Finishing Touch: Sweep some across your lids to make it look natural, and apply a few coats of mascara to open up your eyes for a fresh-faced look.
