BOLDLY ROMANTIC: CREATE FALL’S RED-HOT AND ROSY MAKEUP TREND IN 8 EASY STEPS

When it comes to the minimal makeup look of the moment, Instagram is leading the charge yet again. Pinks and taupes aren’t going anywhere, but a warmer palette of hot-on-Instagram peaches, bronzes and golds instantly radiate a smouldering glow. Also, just as noteworthy: It’s a universally flattering palette that seems to give everyone a natural, amber-filtered luminosity. But, don’t confuse this boldly romantic look with a barely-there makeup look. With soft definition around the eyes and a sly play on texture, the result is more polished and pretty with plenty of sizzle.

Step 1: Perfect your base by building up a medium-matte foundation where needed, such as under eyes and enlarged pores. A foundation stick doubles as a concealer, and can then be blended out with a foundation brush in areas where you want your natural skin texture to shine through.
Try: Pür 4-in-1 Foundation Stick

Step 2: Use a dark brown eyeliner to subtly define your eyes, tracing the upper and lower lash lines. To make the eyeliner almost undetectable, blend it toward your lash lines, fluffing it outward for a softly groomed appearance.

Step 3: Enhance the contrast further by rimming your upper and lower lash lines with a shimmering rosy-bronze eyeshadow.

Step 4:
Next, sweep an iridescent apricot eyeshadow over your eyelids, stopping at the crease.

Step 5: Balance the lustrous effect with a matte, cream-coloured eyeshadow, blending from the crease up to the brow bone.

Step 6: Curled and feathery eyelashes are definitely a must for this kind of daytime drama! Apply a coat or two of mascara, gently lifting the top lid under the brow bone to reach from roots to tips with the wand.

Step 7: Now it’s time to add some “wow!” to your cheeks. Swirl a pinkish-bronze blush over your cheekbones, and don’t be afraid to carry the colour up toward your temples with a lighter touch.

Step 8: Finish with a creamy nude lip, using a lip liner if you want stronger definition. Layer, layer, layer, until you reach the intensity you desire.
