Ditch the juicy glosses and try a dramatic lip look this summer! The hot trend right now is the unlikely pairing of dark berry lips with glowing bronzed skin. Hip starlets like Rachel Bilson and Lea Michele have been spotted sporting this ultra-glam look. “With humid weather, easy makeup is a must–when you focus on just the lips and bronzed skin, all you need is mascara to seal the deal,” says Jenny Smith, makeup artist for Nars. Check out Jenny’s tips for creating this chic look at home:

  • To prevent makeup from fading out, start with the new Nars Pro-Prime Skin Smoothing Face Prep and Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base for a shine-and-melt-free complexion.
  • Bronze skin using a bronzer with golden shimmer to create an intense sun-kissed look.
  • Beautiful bronze eyes can be achieved by sweeping bronze and gold shadows from lashes to brow. Blend a black eyeliner along upper and lower lashes for a smoky haze. Coat lashes with volumizing mascara.
  • Polish lips with a shiny, rich shade of lipstick or gloss, such as Coup de Coeur Lip Gloss. Not ready to go all the way dark? Try a less intense look with Greta Pure Sheer SPF Lip Treatment–a mauve tint with moisturizing agents.
