How To: Natural Sunkissed Glow

A natural sunkissed glow is a makeup look for every season and as it is Summer , it is almost a necessity. It is about showcasing illuminating healthy skin. But, how can you mimic the “radiant glow” which occurs an hour after a workout (minus the smell and sweat) and spending serious time in the sun? Let us show you how to get sunkissed beautiful skin with these products from RY.

Skin protection

Protect your skin with sunscreen, applying products like ASAP Moisturising Daily Defence SPF 50+. Your skin will be instantly hydrated, and the formula won’t leave behind any residue. Even try lightweight makeup products with SPF such as BB cream. I suggest elf Cosmetics BB Cream with SPF20 Broad Spectrum Sunscreen to protect your skin and attain a subtle glow.

Opt for gradual self-tanners

For when you want to achieve a whole body glow or trick your friends into thinking you spent last weekend at the beach, reach for gradual self-tan. Try PureTan Pure Bronze Gradual Everyday Tanning Body Moisturiser SPF15 200ml. You can apply it all over your body; do not require a mitt and no fake tan smell. Tick, tick and tick in my opinion.

Prep your skin

While makeup can create miracles, to maintain healthy and hydrated skin after you have taken it all off, I suggest lightweight moisturisers. Products similar to Alpha-H Daily Essential Moisturiser SPF 30+ 50ml are indispensable for aiding dry or tired skin hydration.

Luminous primer

Luminous primer is your new makeup BFF when it comes to achieving a healthy sheen. Products like Illamasqua Beyond Veil Primer 30ml can be the perfect primer pot at the end of a bronzed shimmery rainbow.

A lightweight foundation helps fade discolouration and blemishes while leaving you with a natural-looking finish. Try to hold back on your beauty blender and apply one layer to even out your skin tone. OFRA Absolute Cover Silk Peptide Foundation is an example of an oil-free lightweight foundation.

Bronzer is perhaps the first product people think of when creating a natural sunkissed makeup look. I suggest Becca’s creamy Sunchaser Palette Bronze and blush for a warm, dewy texture.

Bright eyes

Bright and beautiful eyes will tie the natural look all together. Achieve similar luminous hues to Jamie Chung with the nude by nature Natural Illusion Eye Shadow Trio palette.

A natural sunkissed glow calls for nude, pink or peach lips. Lip balms and glosses from Thebalm will help keep your lips moisturised.

Pops of colour

Enhance your glow with bright and colourful clothing. Colours such as white, pink, teal, yellow or red create a fun, vibrant contrast to your natural looking sunkissed skin.
