Forget about the gloomy weather brought upon by the -Ber months. You can look like it's summer every day by giving your makeup a touch (or a thorough dusting) of bronze. Not only will you look instantly more sculpted, bronzing will also give you a golden glow—and who doesn't want that? Below, we've rounded up some easy, celebrity-approved techniques for looking sunkissed all year round:
1. Leila Alcasid
After you douse your skin in bronzer, don't forget to add a hint of sparkle on your lids with a shimmer eyeshadow. For easy application, use a cream formula you can blend with your fingers!
2. Lauren Reid
Just got back from the beach? Amplify your tan with warm browns, peachy hues, and tons of highlighter.
3. Sarah Lahbati
Revive that brown lipstick you haven't worn in a while and use it to add a wash of color, warmth, and a slight sheen to your eyes, cheeks, and lips. Using the same product this way will have your makeup looking extra polished, thanks to the uniform hues.
4. Lovi Poe
A light bronze shimmer is a great color for barely-there highlighting since it doesn't stand out too much on warm-toned skin. Use it sparingly to look sculpted sans the contour—place it on your eyes' inner corners, nose bridge, and cupid's bow.
5. Pia Wurtzbach
When done right, wearing a foundation shade that's a shade darker than your skin tone can look super flattering. The key is to choose a sheer to medium coverage formula and to buff it well into your skin until it blends with your natural color. Finish the look with a bold lip that flatters your undertone to make your tan pop even more!
6. Maymay Entrata
Pink can be tricky to wear with a bronze look, but as long you opt for a shade that's subtle and of the same undertone, you'll be good. No need to buy a new product either, you can just mix any pink blush with some bronzer to instantly tone down the rosy hue.
7. Ria Atayde
Mix your favorite peachy blush with your bronzer and swipe it across your cheekbones to cop this "brontoured" (bronzer-contour) look. Run it a little over your nose, too, for a realistic beach tan.
