It’s the season to flaunt all those peachy hues and pastels… Summer is round the corner and these colours are set to return with a bang!! Earthy tones and pastel go hand in hand and hence a bronze look can never go wrong on any skin tone. Here we have Vydurya Lokesh from Bengaluru, a celebrity makeup expert at Artistry by Vydurya, breaking down the look for us.

Here is how you can look like a sun goddess:

Skin care

Step 1: Start by cleansing your face and apply a moisturiser suitable for your skin type.

Step 2: Don’t forget to dab on some eye cream and a primer to make sure all this drama stays put the entire time.

Eye makeup

Tip: The best way to judge your features and symmetry is by starting off doing the Brows. It gives you a clear judgment of the lid placement and application of eye makeup.

Step 1: Apply a thin layer of liquid concealer on the lid area.

Step 2: Apply a wash of soft brown starting from the crease up to the lid.

Step 3: Take a warmer shade of brown and blend the lid area keeping the outers softer with the initial soft brown colour.

Step 4: Keep adding darker browns on the outer corner of the eye so as to shape the eye and lift the feature.

Step 5: Get a bronze coloured eyeshadow (preferably shimmery textured) and use it with a moist application brush so it gives you a popup effect over the matt layers.

Step 6: Apply a thin line of kajal over your upper and lower waterline and smudge it using a dark brown.

Step 7: To create a smudged kohl effect, repeat the same on the lower line to enhance the drama.

Step 8: Curl your lashes and apply generous coats of mascara and then if preferred, add some false lashes to elevate the look.
