1. Mix-up your foundation for a luminous glow
For beautifully dewy summer skin add a drop of MAC Strobe Cream or Clarins Instant Light toour regular foundation. This instantly creates a luminous glow.
2. Don’t forget the skin
To complete your glow when wearing spaghetti straps or bob tubes, don’t forget to highlight your collarbones and shoulder s using a minera shimmer powder or strobe cream.
3. Contour, contour, contour
Contour your face using good quality self-tan by Sensau. Dip a medium-sized stipple brush in the self-tan and apply as you would a contour powder – along the hollows of your cheeks, along the hairline of your forehead, and a touch on the nose.
4. Add a pop of colour to update your summer look
I love a bright green or cobalt blue eyeliner along the top lash line. For your lips, add glitter or use a bright glossy colour and update your look, a la Pat McGrath’s newly launched lip sets.
5. Hit ’em with the gold
Complete your sexy summer look with a dot of gold shimmer on the inner corners of your eyes, and you’re ready to dazzle.
