How To

Eyebrows are shaped
Step 1

Wow Brows

Precisely define your brows with an eyebrow pencil.

Then use an eyebrow gel to fix them perfectly in place.

Step 2

Apply eyeshadow

Apply a creamy, brown eyeshadow to the first and last thirds of your eyelids.

Then take some more product on an eyeshadow brush to intensify your lower lash line.

Step 3

Glitter, baby!

Use a lighter-colored, creamy eyeshadow to add a golden highlight to the middle third of your eyelid. Make your eyes look visibly bigger by applying the lighter-colored eyeshadow to the inner corners of your eyes too.

Then blend the eyeshadow with an eyeshadow brush or your fingertips.

Define the waterline

For a particularly intense look, define your waterline with a darker-colored, creamy eyeshadow.

Step 5

Blend it!

Step 7

Add radiant highlights

Apply the golden eyeshadow under your brows, from the bridge to the tip of your nose, to your Cupid’s bow above your lip, your chin, and your cheeks.

To do this, take the eyeshadow on your fingers and gently work it into your skin.

Forehead, cheekbones and chin area are emphasized with a bronzing powder
Step 8

Bronze it!

Use a darker shade of bronzer to give a sun-kissed glow.

Pick up the powder on a blush or powder brush (depending on the size of your face) and use it to sculpt the forehead, accentuate the cheekbones, and define the chin area.

The lips are emphasized with a glossy gloss
Step 9

Go for Glow

In summer, your lips dry out faster than usual. Lipsticks with nourishing waxes serve as a protective barrier, while adding moisture and leaving your lips feeling soft.

Choose a lustrous gloss with a beautiful shine for your bronzed glow makeup. This will create a stunning volume effect.
