While summer is all about minimal coverage, it's also the time to rock bronzed skin and bright fiery lips. My game plan? keep eye makeup subdued and let skin and lips take the centerstage. I have the following suggestions!

1. Quit overly-drawn, overly-shaped, overly-concealed Instagram brows and opt for natural-looking eyebrows. With your trusted brow pencil (my fave right now is Marc Jacobs Brow Wow), lightly line upper and lower brow starting from the center going outward following the natural shape of your eyebrows. Fill-in sparse area then brush the hairs from the center going inward using spoolie. 

2. Quit heavily-contoured, sharply chiseled and mega-highlighted cheekbones and opt for sun-kissed complexion (do the 3-trick as illustrated below). With a powder brush, lightly apply bronzer from the forehead, under cheekbone and under jaw in fast sweeping motion, just like writing 3. Then dust nose and decolletage using the same brush thereafter for a more cohesive look. Don't overdo it, muddy face is never fab. Tanorexic hell to the no. I have tons of bronzers but for this look, I used Hourglass Ambient Radiant Bronze Light (reviewed here).

3. Finish the look with the brightest red, orange or red orange lipstick because it compliments bronzed skin perfectly. I prefer matte finish because it creates the ultimate opaque pigmentation, femme fatale level! My current favorite is Dolce and Gabbana Matte Lipstick 605 Dolce Fire (I reviewed Inferno and Ruby here). Remember to exfoliate prior to application for better slip and wear.
