Use lightweight foundations
If you’re dreaming of a sun-kissed glow—the kind of skin you flaunt right after a beach vacay, your base needs to be fuss-free. Since the temperatures are anyway soaring, you need to make sure that your foundation is lightweight because anything heavy on your skin is going to defeat the purpose. We suggest using the Lakmé 9to5 Weightless Mousse Foundation that’s feathery light on the skin.
Warm up your skin
Use warm toned pigments on your skin because anything lighter will not give you the tan you’re looking for. For the eyes, go for a simple brown/bronzed eyeshadow and apply it all over your lids. But for the cheeks, choose a blush that’s warm-toned and has a hint of glitter. We suggest using the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Shimmer Brick, Pink that’s a mix of many warm-toned shades perfect to add that much needed sun-kissed glow to your face.
Bronzer is your BFF
When it comes to faking a sun-kissed glow, nothing does it better than a bronzer. Apply it at the top of your cheeks around the top of your temple and create a C. Make sure you contour perfectly because that’s what’s going to give you the sun-kissed glow. To get the perfect bronzer in your vanity kit, rely on the Lakmé Absolute Moonlit Highlighter. Use the darker shade of the palette to contour your face.
Highlight certain areas
Using the same palette, make sure you apply the champagne shade on your brow bone, the centre of your nose, your cupid’s bow—basically, areas where light will naturally hit your face.
