Summer is finally here! If you haven't had the chance to soak up some sun or you're headed to one of many the many festivals this season; here is a dewy, golden look with a pop of colour to give you that bronzed summery vibe. 

To ensure your makeup stays on all day despite the heat, make sure to use a primer. To brighten and give your skin a healthy 'lit from within" look, try Graydon's Face Glow Tinted Primer + Illuminator.

For added warmth and a natural looking flush, blend a cream blush like Smashbox L.A. Lights Blendable Lip & Cheek Color in Venice Beach Bronze to the apples of your cheeks with your finger or a dual fiber brush.

To make your eyes pop, use a volumizing mascara like CLINIQUE's High Impact Mascara applying to both top and bottom lashes for an extra bold effect. 

TIP: Try a nude eyeliner in the waterline to make eyes appear bigger and more awake!

Now we have to give those brows some structure! In keeping with the subtle, effortless theme; lightly fill in your brows using a brow pencil like the Smashbox Brow Tech Gloss Stick

All that's left is the lips. Because the eye look is so simple, go for a bold lip colour. Line the lips with a waterproof lip liner similar to your natural lip colour for a long lasting "eat proof" base and then go in with a bright, matte lipstick like Bobbi Brown's Art Stick in Orange to contrast with your glowy skin. 

TIP: Apply a shimmery 'champagne' eye shadow or highlighter to the centre of the lips for a plumping effect.
