Sun Touched SkinSunday, May 04, 2008
Women like Valerie, have glowing tanned skin all year round. But for those of you who have just gone to the beach or are faking a tan this summer, check out my tips for an enhanced summer glow!
Remember, orange and tangerine shades are in abundance this season. Not all can wear them but for those that can they are a great alternative to the pinks. Those with golden skin will find that orange makeup will tend to warm and highlight the face like no pink ever could.
Makeup Base: Cover the face with a very light coating of either luminous skin cover or luminous moisturizer - the key here is a natural glow to the skin not a made-up feel! Now, there are brands out there now that came up with illuminizers in gold or bronze shades, so that would look best on your skin.
Eyes: Using a peach toned shimmer powder or loose eyeshadow dip a finger into the shimmer then dab lightly around the eye both on the top and bottom.
The aim is to make it look like a sprinkling of shimmer, which results in a very sexy but simple look.
Apply a little extra shimmer powder on the very inside and outside of the eye to accent it and bring it out and coat your lashes with a brown mascara.
A black will look to heavy and detract from the lightness of the actual eye makeup.
Lips: Using a lip brush, first line and then fill your lips with an orange toned lipstick. To give the lips a sexy sheen pair your lipstick with a coating of clear orange gloss. Go for the Au Naturel look, let your tan skin make the statement!
