How to create a glow makeup look

Defining and styling brows with a brow pencil and spoolie

Step 1: Wow brows

Precisely define your brows with an eyebrow pencil.

Then use an eyebrow gel to fix them perfectly in place.

Applying brown eyeshadow with a stylo and blending brush

Step 2: Apply eyeshadow

Apply an eyeshadow, in a warm brown shade to the first and last thirds of your eyelids.

Then take some more product on an eyeshadow brush to intensify your lower lash line.

Applying lighter eyeshadow to the lid, inner corner and lash line then blending.

Step 3: Glitter, baby!

Use a lighter-colored, creamy eyeshadow to add a golden highlight to the middle third of your eyelid. Make your eyes look visibly bigger by applying the lighter-colored eyeshadow to the inner corners of your eyes too.

Then blend the eyeshadow with an eyeshadow brush or your fingertips.

Defining the lash line with a darker eyeshadow stylo.

Step 4: Define the waterline

For a particularly intense look, define your waterline with a darker-colored, creamy eyeshadow.

Smoking out the edges of the eyeshadow with a soft brush

Step 5: Blend it!

Take a little bronzer on a soft eyeshadow brush to smoke out the edges and blend the eyeshadow.

Applying mascara to lashes

Step 6: Add some oomph to your lashes

Finish off your bronzed look by adding mascara. Make sure you apply it cleanly and evenly to your lashes.

Expert tip

If you want the perfect summer glow that looks like you’ve just got back from vacation, accentuate areas of your face with the lustrous High Performance Eyeshadow Stylo.


Highlight the key areas of the face

Step 7: Add radiant highlights

Apply the golden eyeshadow under your brows, from the bridge to the tip of your nose, to your Cupid’s bow above your lip, your chin, and your cheeks.

To do this, take the eyeshadow on your fingers and gently work it into your skin.

Add bronzer with a soft brush

Step 8: Bronze it!

Use a darker shade of bronzer to give a sun-kissed glow.

Pick up the powder on a blush or powder brush (depending on the size of your face) and use it to sculpt the forehead, accentuate the cheekbones, and define the chin area.

Applying lip gloss to lips

Step 9: Go for glow

In summer, your lips dry out faster than usual. Lipsticks with nourishing waxes serve as a protective barrier, while adding moisture and leaving your lips feeling soft.

Choose a lustrous gloss with a beautiful shine for your bronzed glow makeup. This will create a stunning volume effect.
