Give metallic lips a warm-weather makeover. Apply a cream foil with fingertips, then press and work bronze pigments into the centre of lips for a dual-tone molten finish.

Painterly strokes give new life to gloss. Wash an oil all over, then marble on lipstick using a lip brush. Sweep a tonal shade over eyelids and drape cheeks with blush.
