Bronzing 101 with NARS
Nothing beats that sun-kissed look and with international holidays potentially amiss this year, NARS are here with their bronzing 101 to help you achieve that golden glow from home.
This summer, discover the limited edition ‘Under the Sun’ collection that’s recently landed in store; three exclusive products guaranteed to give you that perfectly bronzed look in seconds.
For the sun seeker
Discover the ‘Summer Solstice Eyeshadow Palette‘ (£45) – nine warm shades of golden tones with cascading hints of burnished bronze and rich rays of ruby. To amplify your look from day to night, the experts suggest you lightly dampen your brush by spraying it with water before applying to achieve a metallic finish that can be used as eyeshadow or eyeliner.
For the gold rush
The ‘Summer Solstice Cheek Duo‘ (£37) is your summer beauty icon. Give your cheeks an added sun-sculpted dimension with Laguna and the best-selling Ibiza for the perfect sun-kissed look. Simply apply all over the face from the temples, across the cheeks and along the jawline. Buff and blend in a circular motion to avoid any harsh lines.
For a subtle glow – finish by dusting the Highlighting Powder along the cheekbone and blend towards the hairline with an emphasis on the high point of your cheek.
For an all over glow – apply the Highlighting Powder to your cheekbones, then use the tip of the brush to sweep down the centre of the nose and lightly brush on your Cupid’s Bow. To dial up the glow a notch, apply in a ‘C’ starting from the cheekbone and blending above the brow bone, applying the remainder below the brow bone.
For a sculpture glow – use the NARS Ita Kabuki Brush wet to apply the Highlighting Powder over the top of the cheekbones in a targeted back and forth motion.
For the heat of the moment
The ‘Sunkissed Bronzing Cream‘ (£30) and brush (£41) is this summer’s newest sensation. An innovative cream-to-powder bronzing formula, it adds a soft warmth to your look with a seamless and sultry soft-matte finish. Buff, build and bronze with the brush to achieve a natural glow that’s never been so effortless. Start where the sun would naturally hit, the top of the forehead and the bridge of the nose. Top tip? Mix your body lotion with the Sunkissed Cream to even out your skin across your shoulders.
