How to Create a Year Round Sun Kissed Makeup Look

The ultimate sun kissed makeup look shouldn’t be reserved for the warmer months, as it adds glow and the appearance and vitality and, let’s face it, we need that all year round. The look really boils down to three things: blush, highlighter, and bronzer. Whatever your skin tone, adding warmth and radiance to your cheeks will instantly transform your complexion and the entire look takes just minutes to create from start to finish. Here’s everything you need to know…

Best foundation for a sun kissed look

As with all makeup looks, a fresh sun kissed affect starts with the perfect base. Opt for a formula such as Real Flawless Weightless Perfecting Waterproof Foundation, that delivers luminous cake-free coverage, while feeling light as air on skin. Using the Real Flawless Foundation Brush, begin applying a small amount of foundation to the center of your face and blend outwards towards your hairline and jawline.

For an even more natural finish you can create a simple sun kissed look with Tinted Moisturizer. This cult-worthy fan-favorite protects skin with SPF30 while effortlessly smoothing texture and evening out tone. As the perfect everyday skincare/makeup hybrid, it helps nourish skin with a Hydrating Complex made up of Macadamia and Kukui Seed Oils. Application couldn’t be easier: dispense a small amount of Tinted Moisturizer onto the back of your hand and then blend onto skin with a makeup sponge or clean fingertips.

Best blush for a sun kissed look

Blush really is the star of the show for any sun kissed look. For a lasting flush apply Blush Color Infusion to the apples of your cheeks with our Cheek Color Brush, blend upwards and outwards to reveal a soft wash of natural looking color. With finishes ranging from matte to a subtle sheen, and in an array of shades for all skin tones, you can choose how luminous to take your look.

Best bronzer for a sun kissed look

Enhance your glow even further with some strategically placed bronzer. For a dewy finish pat a small amount of Tinted Moisturizer Bronzer in a shade a touch darker than your natural coloring to the tops of your cheekbones, blending upwards towards your temples. For a more all-over radiance, blend over the bridge of your nose, too. You can use a brush to do this, but fingertips work just as well.

For a velvety matte finish, blend Matte Radiance Baked Powder onto the tops of your cheeks, onto your forehead, and over the bridge of your nose. Use the Bronzer Brush to quickly deposit and blend the color for a seamless finish.

If you want to dial up your look further, blend a small amount of bronzer over your eyelids, and finish with a couple of coats of mascara.

Best highlighter for a sun kissed look

Now, for the icing on the cake: highlighter. Highlighter is the quickest and easiest way to cheat a glow and, if you haven’t worn one before, you will be amazed at the brightening affect it has to your complexion. Pat RoseGlow Liquid Highlighter onto the tops of your cheekbones where your blush meets your bronzer. Take a small amount more and blend at the inner corners of your eyes, the tip of your nose, and your Cupid’s bow.
