There’s no better time to channel that bronzed goddess glow than during the summer. Vacation plans and trips to the beach are a surefire way to achieve that enviable tan. But what happens when your vacation ends up a staycation — when you’d rather avoid the heat in favour of cooler temperatures? Or maybe you’re one of those who tend to burn easily even after slathering layer upon layer of SPF. Whatever the case, we’ve devised a cheat to that healthy, sun-kissed look you can wear during the warm summer months and have people guessing where you took that holiday.
Step 1: Light it up.
Apply base makeup as preferred, though we suggest tinted moisturiser or a lightweight foundation for a fresh-faced look. You can opt to spot conceal with a heavier foundation/concealer for blemishes and dark spots. Use a liquid or cream highlighter to highlight your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose and your cupid’s bow to illuminate your face.
