Bronze Powder

Go a little heavier on the bronze powder and apply it with a big fluffy face brush. This will give the look of being sun-kissed and leave your skin looking healthy, smooth, and glowy. To kick it up a notch, use a bronzer with slight shimmer to it for a flawless bronzed makeup look!

Shimmering Eye-Shadow

Warm bronze shimmering eye-shadows are a great colour to wear during the summer and the shimmer is beautiful when out in the sun. It draws the attention to your eyes and brings out every eye colour! It’s also a very forgiving formula for beginners learning how to do makeup.

Blush

Use a peach-toned blush and swipe it on the apples of your cheeks. Then take what ever is left over on the brush and sweep it across the nose, the temples of your forehead, and a little on your chin. This is naturally where the sun would hit and gives you that flawless “fresh out of the sun” summer look. By starting with the fresh product on your cheeks and using the residual product left over on the rest of your face, you avoid looking like you’ve applied too much blush!

Using creamy lipsticks and glossy lip glosses give you that naturally looking plump pout with maximum comfort and wear. Using a warm toned colour on your lips will help bring your entire simple summer makeup look together in one simple swipe.

Heat Proof Setting Sprays

Top off your makeup with a long lasting finishing spray. Not only with this ensure your makeup is heat proof, but it melts the products into the face for a more natural looking makeup application. Pick a setting spray that will balance your skin type for the best results. For oily skin, use a mattifying setting spray. For dry skin, use an illuminating setting spray.
