How to Get the Sunburst Effect After Summer
Strategic Illuminant: also known as Sunburn Blush and Sunkissed Blush, this trend is nothing more than a method of applying blush that follows a slightly different 'pattern'. In simple terms, the blush is used to simulate a slight sunburn, reproducing the appearance of the face after you have been at the beach, swimming pool or otherwise in the open air for several hours. This is the distinguishing feature of this look: apply an illuminant to key areas of the face for a lasting summer glow.
Prepare Your Skin: Start with a light base, using a moisturiser with golden undertones or an illuminating primer for fresh, radiant skin.
Natural eyebrows: Leave your eyebrows in their natural state or use a clear gel to lightly fix them.
Sparkling eyes: Apply a golden or bronze eyeshadow to the mobile eyelid and blend outwards. Add a touch of gold eyeshadow to the centre of the eyelid to create a luminous effect.
Lashes: Use a volumising mascara for thick lashes that emphasise your glowing eyes.
Natural Lips: Choose a nude lip shade or a transparent lip gloss to keep the focus on the eyes.
Fixing Makeup: Use a fixing spray to make your look last all day and keep your summer glow intact.
