Sultry Summer Glow

GET THE LOOK – THE SULTRY SUMMER GLOW

Recreate this sultry summer look with our Curtis Collection Signature Glow essentials.

BASE

To achieve a radiant, lasting glow, prepare your skin with Pore Perfecting Face Primer. Apply all over the face using fingertips. This product is excellent for absorbing any excess oil during the day, as well as minimising pore size and prolonging the wear of your foundation.

FACE

To create flawless skin with a luminous summer glow, blend Naked Glow BB Cream all over the face using Foundation Brush 150. This multi use product can also double as your primer, moisturiser, sun protection and foundation. Our benefit packed, innovative beauty balm will deliver an effortless, natural looking glow, providing coverage with a dewy finish.

Bronze up your glow with our Liquid Illuminator… or as we like to call it our ‘liquid gold’. This luxurious lotion will instantly add a sun kissed finish to your skin as if you have spent the entire summer laying on the beach! Simply mix in with your foundation prior to applying on the face. Mix equal parts foundation and illuminator on your palette or hand and then apply all over the face for a bronzed summer glow.

Conceal and highlight with our multi use Mineral Illuminating Highlighter Pen. Conceal imperfections by dabbing over dark circles and blemishes. Highlight cheekbones, under eye area and high spots on the face by applying sparingly in these areas. Blend with Concealer Brush 155 for a flawless finish.

Tip: The powerful light reflective properties in our minerals will ensure that light is bouncing off the face creating a flawless finish. Imperfections, blemishes and dark circles will be invisible to the naked eye and skin will appear bright, even and illuminated. Be sure to position your concealer and illuminators in the high spots of the face to ramp up the glow while giving your face an instant lift!

CHEEKS

Contour and sculpt your face by shading with our Baked Bronzer in Island Goddess. The ultimate bronzer for adding warmth and glow to your complexion. Sweep the product under the cheekbones and along the jawline. Blend with our Illuminating Bronzer in Sun Goddess - apply this along the cheekbones, forehead and along the bridge of the nose for a highlighted summer glow. Add a pop of colour to brighten the skin and eyes with one of our Mineral Shimmer Blush shades.

Tip: For fairer skin types, use Illuminating Bronzer in Sun Goddess for contouring as well as all over the face for just the right amount of warmth. This is a must have bronzer guaranteed to leave your skin with a naturally sun kissed finish!

BROWS

It begins with brows…. The first step to making your eyes stand out means ensuring that your aches are groomed, defined and sculpted. Our extensive brow collection makes this an easy task! Using our latest innovation, the Brow Tint, apply this product like a mascara directly onto your brows. This will ensure that your natural brows are tinted and enhanced with minimal fuss and technique required. A brush on brow means that you enhance what you already have rather than drawing your brows in. Once brows are tinted and colour is set after a few moments, fill in any visible gaps in your brow by applying our best selling Brow Definer and Styler. Stroke through the brows in short strokes, focusing on areas that are sparse and uneven.

Tip: Our Brow Definer and Styler is water proof, making this essential for summer beach sessions!

EYES

For long lasting sexy, smouldering eyes, use Eye Primer to conceal your lids and create an even canvas for your eye shadow. Apply Glide on Gel Liner all over the mobile lid and blend up to the socket.  Take our Signature Quad in Midnight Collection and softly sweep one of the two medium shades through the socket. Add definition and depth by applying the darkest shade in this palette to the lower lash line and outer corner of the eye.  Using our Mineral Velvet Shadow in Silver Lining, dust over the liner on the mobile lid, up to the socket and along the lower lash line for a touch of shimmer. Layer Mineral Velvet Shadow in Midnight Sky in the socket for added depth. Highlight brow bone and the inner corner of the eyes by applying Mineral Velvet Shadow in Diamonds and Pearls. For further definition, apply Line Fix Gel Liner in the waterline of your eyes and finish with VX Volume Mascara for sexy, sophisticated lashes.

Tip: Eye primer can give the eyes an instant lift by concealing imperfections on the lids making your eyes look larger and brighter – not to mention that it will keep your shadow in place all day!

LIPS

Apply Glam Lipstick in Super Sweet over the entire lip and add volume and glow by layering V Gloss in Lure over the top.

Tip: For an instantly fuller pout, always add a touch of gloss over your lipstick – this is sure to add shine and volume!

FINISHING TOUCH

To complete this glowing look, softly dust Mineral Velvet Shadow in Diamonds and Pearls along the bridge of the nose, cheekbones and cupids bow for a luminous, highlighted glow. Ensure that there is minimal amount of product on your brush to avoid streaking.

 

 

This look really embodies the essence of those sultry summer nights. By mixing bronze, silver and deep blue shimmers on the eyes, this look has a glowing appeal that every woman desires. The relaxed cool of summer, fresh, bronzed, glowing skin with a smouldering smokey eye. It doesn’t get much sexier than that!
