Want a sunny glow without the UV damage? Thankfully it’s easy to brighten up your skin without the sun’s harmful rays. Here’s a lightweight, seven-step makeup routine that will get you the sun-kissed look you want.
Sun-kissed skin has a natural glow. It’s perfectly bronzed, like it was tanned or lightly browned by the sun. Think Zendaya or d’Ashley Graham —our summer complexion goals! But you don’t need to head to the nearest tanning salon or slather your face in tanning oil to get the look. Just rock a sun-kissed makeup look by strategically applying lightweight products to shake off the winter blues and give your skin a radiant glow.
To create a simple sun-kissed makeup look, grab some multi-use products that are easy to apply on all skin types. Lightweight, blendable and made with over 99% natural origin ingredients*, our favorites will get you the look you want.
*Except for highlighters
In the dog days of summer, skin tends to get oily faster than usual. If you have oily skin and want to avoid unwanted shine and get a radiant complexion, start by applying the solid matifying face cream. to the T zone. The product’s phytoglycogen hydrates, while the arrowroot powder efficiently absorbs excess sebum for a flawless makeup base.
On the other hand, if your skin needs more radiance, it would be better to turn to the Phyto-glow serum and creams. They’re made with phytoglycogen and encapsulated and stabilized vitamin C to give radiance to the skin and unify the complexion.
If you want a sun-kissed look, no need for foundation! Opt for a tinted oil instead, especially on sunny days. Apply it all over your face with a swipe and blend with your fingertips, a brush or sponge to even it out and get a naturally radiant complexion.
For optimal results, warm up the foundation on your skin so that it’s creamier and easier to apply. Blend with a makeup brush or sponge.
If you have oily skin, go for a stick foundation over tinted oil to get the same sun-kissed look.
Brighten up your eyes with a smooth and creamy concealer that will hide your blemishes and summer sleep deprivation (why go to bed when it’s so nice out?) without smothering your skin. It comes in a retractable tube so you can apply it more easily.
For optimal results, warm up the concealer on your skin so that it’s creamier and easier to apply. Blend gently with a makeup brush or sponge.

The secret to a sun-kissed look? One word: bronzer. Choose one that matches your skin tone. First apply it generously to your cheeks and then sparingly to your nose and temples. It can be used with or without foundation to brighten up your complexion.
Apply bronzer in the shape of number 3 — from your temples across your cheeks, and then the jawbone.
For an effortless sun-kissed look, opt for a lightweight blush that will give your cheeks a hint of pink. Apply it to the cheekbones and then blend the color upwards.
For a 3D effect, apply a lighter shade on your cheekbones and a darker shade on the apples of your cheeks.
*Amélie is wearing the Golden Rose highlighter.
Finish your glow up with a highlighter. It will help your beauty shine! Thanks to its creamy texture, you can easily apply it to the high points of your face like the tops of your cheekbones and the contour of your forehead for a glowy look. The highlighter can be mixed with a foundation in the light areas of the face to get more radiance.
Stick bronzers and highlighters are great multi-use products—they can also be used as eyeshadow! For an even brighter look, apply it under the brow bone and to the inner corners of the eyes.
*Amélie is wearing the Silky Pink blush.
The cherry on top? Lip gloss with a balm texture that will make your lips shine without a sticky or greasy feeling. Choose a subtle shade to avoid creating too many shadows in your sun-kissed makeup look.
