How to change your makeup to match your tan

Nothing upgrades your summer glow like a great self-tanner. But a bronzing boost can have a big impact on your look, and it calls for a change in your makeup routine. We’re making it super-easy for you with three tricks that enhance your golden look, so you can complement your tan in seconds, with traffic-stopping results.

Tint lashes over time

Nude makeup looks gorgeous with a golden glow, so stick to neutral eyeshadows that make lids look contoured. Then, add definition with a volumising mascara like Volume Colourist, £5.99. Not only does it create long, fluttery lashes the second you apply – over two weeks of wear, the clever formula tints your lashes for your darkest flutter yet. Now that’s what we call #iwokeuplikethis beauty.

Add a fresh summer flush

Amp up your sun-kissed look with a touch of coral blusher on your cheeks, which mimics the flush of warmth you get when you’ve been basking in the sun. Opt for a cream formula, like Royal Blush in Coral Queen, £5.49, which transforms into a long-wear powder finish when you blend it into your skin.

Go for a dewy glow

You’re stunning, just look at you. Amp up that tan this season with a bronzer that gives and gives. Sun Shimmer Shimmering Bronzer, £5.99, is a multi-tonal palette of shimmery colours that helps you define, contour and highlight the right way. Add highlights and lowlights to the tops and hollows of your cheekbones and brow bones for an instant lift.
