At this time of year, few things are more alluring than the prospect of a sun-kissed glow. And who can blame us? Spring has officially sprung, sunshine is becoming a more frequent fixture, and our minds are turning to much-needed holidays. But, before you hit the beach or search for more sun, you might want to take care of that hibernated skin. Months of winter weather, and a sufficient lack of vitamin D, have no-doubt wreaked havoc on your complexion, so before you jet off, it's time to bronze up.
A golden complexion is one of the many benefits of time spent (safely!) in the sun. But if – like us – you’ve been denied those glorious rays, or you’re not enthused by sun lounging, you may need to fake it till you make it. That’s where we come in. Our bronzing range will have you glistening like a goddess in a few easy minutes. Much quicker than a long haul flight!
A subtle sprinkling of freckles practically screams summer. Whether you've got plenty to go round already, or you want to add a few to your facial repertoire, why not enhance them with our eyebrow pencil? Yep, this little number comes in light, medium, and dark shades and can be used to add a smattering of those baby beauty spots. Quite a nifty trick, huh?
To begin, swirl a full-bodied blusher brush across our tonal bronzing brick, making sure to tap off any excess powder before use. Run the brush softly under your cheekbones and temples, to add definition and warmth.
Next up, balance your bronzer’s depth of colour with an illuminating highlighter, which will also work to shape and contour your face. Apply across the top of your cheeks, and over your browbone for a dewy finish. Top tip – our shimmer liner is great for using on the inner corner of your eyes to add brightness.
Finally, when it comes to your lips, keep things tonal with a touch of taupe. Ensure your smiler is at its supplest with a dab of lip balm, before lining with a neutral liner to amplify your lip’s natural shape. Finish with a slick of our moisture rich lipstick for pout-ready chops. Done!
