Planning a trip to Goa and want to flaunt a sun-kissed glow-up? Well, we heard your wish and are here to deliver it too! No matter how many makeup trends you try, nothing spells perfect like a natural or bronzy beach makeup look. The bronzed makeup look can never go out of fashion. It is perfect for a holiday, dinner date or any special occasion. Now that we’ve hyped this look so much, let’s tell you how to achieve it with makeup. Here is a simple sun-kissed makeup tutorial along with products to help you get that ‘sunshine in your pocket’ to prep yourself anytime and anywhere.
Step 1: Fill in your pores
Skin prep plays a pivotal role in how your bronzed makeup will sit on your face. Clean and moisturise your face and then apply a primer to fill your pores, create an even texture, and to ensure that your makeup lasts long. Try the Maybelline Fit Me Primer to create a smooth canvas for the rest of your makeup and give you a radiant sun-kissed makeup look.
Step 2: Create an even complexion
The next step of your beach makeup is to create an even complexion and smooth texture. Apply a very thin layer of the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation to get that perfect bronzed makeup look. To ensure a smooth application, without making it look heavy or cakey, dab the foundation with a makeup sponge or brush instead of sweeping it across. Also, make sure that you choose the right shade of foundation that matches your skin tone and undertone. You can now find your ideal shade match with ease by answering a few questions on the Maybelline Foundation Finder tool.
Step 3: Banish the blemishes
Dark circles or puffy eyes cannot go hand in hand with sun-kissed makeup. Use a concealer to conceal and highlight the key features of your face. You can try the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer and apply it on the high points of your face such as the bridge of your nose, top of your cheekbones, and the centre of your forehead, and cover dark circles, acne scars, and blemishes. We recommend that you apply the concealer using the facelifting technique for a natural, yet snatched beach makeup look.
Step 4: Sculpt your face
Add definition to your bronzed makeup look by contouring your cheekbones and jawline. This will create shadows on the face and these shadows can make your face appear slimmer, and give you more prominent cheekbones, a stronger jawline, a smaller nose, fuller lips, and more. Doing beach makeup for Indian skin can be tricky, but not so much when you have the Maybelline V-Face Duo Contour Stick by your side. Blend the product well so that your face makeup doesn’t look muddy or cakey.
Step 5: Go Bronzy
Next, use a bronzer to give your skin the perfect sun-kissed makeup look. The bronzer is used to create natural warmth and using it the right way can make your skin look as if you’ve been vacationing on a tropical island and soaking up in the sun—even if you’re a total homebody or amid a harsh winter.
Step 6: Enhance your cheeks
Give your skin a naturally flushed look by using a pink or nude blush from the Maybelline Fit Me Mono Blush collection. Apply it on the apples of your cheeks to make your skin look fresh and healthy. For natural bronzed makeup, don’t go overboard with the blusher.
Step 7: Put some shine on
Use a highlighter to turn up the glam quotient for your bronzed makeup look. To add a dazzling shine and achieve the perfect sun-kissed makeup look, apply the Maybelline Facestudio Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter on your cheekbones, in an upward motion. Then, apply it to the bridge and tip of your nose and on your cupid’s bow.
Step 8: Let your eyes talk
Fill in sparse or uneven eyebrows with the Maybelline Fashion Brow Cream Pencil. The bronzed makeup look will look the best with natural, warm eyeshadows. Choose a nude eyeshadow shade from the Maybelline Nudes Eyeshadow Palette. Then, intensify your beach makeup look by using eyeliner or kajal or both. But don’t go overboard with the eyeliner or kajal if you want your eye makeup to look natural. Complete your eye makeup with a few coats of the Maybelline Colossal Waterproof Mascara.
Step 9: Add colour to your lips
The final step to complete your sun-kissed makeup look is to add a hint of colour to your lips. Since your face makeup is the focus of this look, stick to a tinted lip balm. The Maybelline Baby Lips Loves Color Lip Balm will not only add colour to your lips but also keep them soft and hydrated all through the day. If you are a lipstick lover and wish to go a mile extra, go for nude or a brown lipstick from the Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Crayon Lipstick collection.
