- It all starts with the skin
- Pay attention to the colour palette
- Know what colours to pair
- Bronzer is your best friend
- Make sure you gloss it up
It all starts with the skin
Pro tip: Start by prepping your skin with serum and then moisturiser. After the moisturiser, for a hint of gloss, dab a light facial oil. You can skip the foundation and instead dab concealer on the spots that need a bit of coverage and blend.
Pay attention to the colour palette
Pro tip: Staying in the range of browns, beiges and dusty terracotta shades will help you ace that Earth look. Dab a little highlighter on the inner corner of your eye and tightline with a nude eye pencil to subtly draw attention to the eyes.
Know what colours to pair
Pro tip: Nearly all Earth tones pair well with each other. For instance, how gorgeous does walnut brown look with olive green? Make sure, whatever colours you pick, you blend them seamlessly
Bronzer is your best friend
Pro tip: When you want to ace an Earthy look, it is important to know where to use the bronzer to get that sun-kissed look. Trace a shape ‘3’ starting at the temples, grazing your cheekbones and then ending just below your jaw line. This gives you a natural looking bronzed, Earthy look.
Make sure you gloss it up
Pro tip: If you want to skip the bronzer and go the glossy way, know where to apply it. Did you know you can use Vaseline Pure Skin Jelly for that ultra-glossy effect? Swipe it on your lids and the top of your cheekbones for an instant glass skin effect.
