Easy Tips To Getting A Faux Glow This Summer

3 Steps to Getting a Fabulous Faux Glow

Looking warm and glowy in Summer is a whole lot easier than it is in Winter, but that doesn't mean it's easy. Don't worry, though — find out how to create a radiant finish sans shimmer, when you continue reading.

Step 1: Bronzer is a year-round beauty tool that helps mimic a warmed look. When it comes to choosing the right glow-inducing product, veer toward the matte side of the spectrum for a more natural finish. Contour by sweeping the product from the top of the ear to the corner of the lip, fading the colour as you move downward. Try MAC Pro Sculpting Cream ($41), a cream-to-powder formula.

Step 2: That warm Spring breeze may give you a natural flush, but rely on blush for a longer-lasting (and less fickle) effect. Cream blush is the most moisturising option for dry skin, and if you top your dewy cheeks with a matte blush in a similar colour, you'll get to heighten the pigment payoff. The CK One Color Cream and Powder Blush Duo ($45) has both powder and cream in one place.

Step 3: Make sure to blend bronzer and blush with a large kabuki brush to sidestep severe angles or too much separation of blush and bronzer. If you do want to add a touch of shimmer, reserve the illuminator to metallic eye shadow and highlighter under the brows. And if you still aren't satisfied with this cheek-only glow, self-tanning never fails.
