Try as we may, getting bronzed and beautiful in the summertime (with the proper SPF slathering, might I add) never quite happens to our fullest desire. Somehow at the end of every summer we always wish we had spent just one more day at the beach. To ensure that we keep the healthy glow even as the weather cools off, Taryn Potenza, makeup artist from Pamela Taylor Makeup Academy, showed us how to get a light bronze look to last through the cold.
Follow her steps below to become bronzed and beautiful.
To add contour to your face, concentrate the color from the iris of your eye and the bottom of your nose outwards towards your ear.
Apply a bronzer (Taryn used Hoola by Benefit), from the higher end of the ear down to the corner of the lip.
Take a coral color blush starting at the back of the pupil and moving out towards the ear.
You can then use a highlighter on the high end of the cheekbone for a touch of sheen. Taryn recommends using NARS Laguna for a slight shimmer.
To finish the look use a translucent finishing powder, such as Tarte’s Smooth Operator. Concentrate on the T-Zone and wherever you see shine.
