The look: Natural with a touch of gold, so your face doesn’t look too bare
or washed out, says makeup artist Alex T.
Getting it right: The idea is to warm the complexion. No megawatt highlighters or heavy use of sculpting powder a la Instagram makeup.
Go for: Matte or slightly shimmery bronze. Alex says to use a soft, fluffy brush (not a densely packed one), which makes blending easier as it doesn’t deposit too
The HW pick: Chanel’s new Duo Bronze et Lumiere palette, which has a matte bronzer and a pearlescent highlighting powder. Dust the bronzer onto cheeks, forehead and nose, then blend out at the edges with the highlighter. Or mix bronzer and highlighter together and apply lightly over the face for a sun-kissed glow.
Give your sun-kissed glow extra wattage with these editor-approved highlighters
