Tip Tuesday - Bronzed and Bright

Get ready for a weekly dose of tips and tricks from Celebrity Makeup Artist and Prtty Peaushun creator, Bethany Karlyn!

To kick off this new beauty routine of TIP TUESDAY, we naturally chose to highlight a perfect use of Prtty Peaushun in your summer-time look... and we're not just talking about glowing gams.

Bethany Karlyn illustrates below how you can use Prtty Peaushun to bronze and brighten your mug as well as other tips to achieve a sun-kissed and dewy complexion.


My favorite way to use PP as a bronzer is to use a shade or two darker than your skin and apply it first to the areas of the face that would be hit most by the sun... the high points: across the top of the forehead, the crest of the cheekbone, the bridge of the nose, the point of the chin and even the brow bone under the brow. 

For a fresh dewy effect, the next step would be to apply a cream blush in a warm peachy tone to the apples of the cheeks. Keep the youthful AND approachable look going with a sheer moist effect on the lips. Use a tinted lip balm in a bright warm tone OR create your own by lightly tapping  a touch of the same cream blush you used on your cheeks onto the lips with your finger. Forego any liner if possible and finish with a healthy slather of lip balm. I Iike to use a big cocoa butter stick by Palmers, available at drugstores. Add a swipe if waterproof mascara and this creamy look will let you dive into summer from the pool to the beach, to the gym, to work and out on the town. 

For a quick dash of smolder at night, rim the upper and lower waterline inside the eye with a dark waterproof pencil and dance 'til dawn looking as fresh as you started!
