Summer and sun-kissed skin go hand-in-hand. But, often that natural, healthy glow needs a little helping along. A little sculpting here, a little dusting of shimmer there. Yes, it’s time to fake it ‘til you make it. Achieve a dewy, summer glow without having to spend any time soaking up the rays with our step-by-step tutorial. Hello, golden goddess!
How can I achieve a Dewy Summer Glow?
- Foundation brush
- Oval brush
- Matt bronzer
- Shimmer bronzer
Step 1 – Mix foundation with illuminator
Take your everyday foundation and add a few drops of illuminator to the formula. You can do this in a palette or on the back of your hand. Mix with a foundation brush before applying as normal.
Step 2 – Apply blusher all over the face
Using a blusher brush, apply a matt bronzer all over the face following the natural contours of the face.
Step 3 – Apply shimmer bronzer
Taking a layered shimmer bronzer, apply to the hollows of the cheeks to add subtle definition.
Top Tip: Use an oval brush to do this as opposed to a traditional blusher brush to pack in as much pigment and shine on application. It’s also better at blending colour for a more natural finish.
Step 4 – Finish with highlighter
Targeting the highest points of your face, apply a highlighter with your fingertips. Use under brow arches, above cheekbones, centre of the forehead, down the nose, chin, and on the Cupid’s bow. Finish with a little dab of highlighter in the corner of the eyes for a more wide-eyed look.
