I adored the super rosy, bronzed glow at the
Michael Kors Spring/Summer runway. The heavy blush and fresh skin has me dreaming of summer beach days already and I was dying to know how to apply the colour without going overboard. So, I chatted with
M.A.C Senior Artist, Caitlin Callahan, to learn how to recreate this glowing spring beauty look.
The look: Michael Kors’ summer girls. "This is a perfect look for spring — easy, youthful and glowing!" says Caitlin.
Caitlin’s tips: Step 1: Foundation You’ll need to start with
flawless skin. Caitlin recommends one that gives a natural finish, but still covers well to hide any imperfections (M.A.C Studio Sculpt Foundation is a great example). "Don’t go lighter or darker than your skin tone," Caitlin warns. "Choose a colour that matches you exactly, then apply starting in the center of the face and blend out. This gives a flawless yet perfected look."
Step 2: Softly apply bronzer "If you want a bit more colour, softly (softly, I said!) add a golden bronzer to frame your face." says Caitlin. "Mineral bronzers are the most sheer. M.A.C Mineralize Skinfinish/Natural in Give Me Sun! is a fab option. It doesn’t have the sparkle that other bronzers have, so the look is more natural. For a bit more glow under the eyes, add concealer and set with a translucent powder."
