Makeup has no rules—wear what you want, regardless of your skin tone. But if you have naturally sunkissed morena skin and you specifically want to show it off, there’s more to the process than just adding bronzer and highlighter. Playing up other parts of your face and experimenting with different textures and colors are always an option, and below, we round up some celebrity-approved ways to achieve your best glow yet using minimal products:
1. Create a glossy complexion with a hydrating serum or a touch of face oil underneath a matte foundation or skin tint.
Bring out your skin’s natural glow by focusing on your base.
2. Reds and pinks stand out against bronze skin. Using it as a lip color is the easiest way to wear it.
Cop Isabelle Daza’s ombré lip for a soft, petal-like effect.
3. Just got home from the beach? Accentuate your tan with a soft wash of lip and cheek tint in a vibrant cherry hue to add lift the color of your complexion.
Top it off with a glossy lip to amp up your glow!
4. Deep warm hues like brown, terracotta, and peach are the morena girl’s failproof colors for an easy, neutral look.
Using them all together like Lovi Poe did subtly adds more dimension to tan skin without looking too stark.
5. If you prefer drama on the eyes than anywhere else, a quick swipe of bronze cream eyeshadow is a foolproof look.
Kathryn Bernardo’s semi-cat eye is a cool detail when you have extra time, but pair everything with barely-there base makeup and only a hint of color on the lips for balance.
6. There's no such thing as too much pink, no matter your skin tone.
Sweep a rosy blush across your cheeks for a faux sunburn and match it with a powder-matte pink lip. For some definition, smudge a pencil liner on your lashline, and then push the kohl outwards for a quick kitten flick.
7. A nude lip color can be a statement, too.
Just wear a shade lighter than you normally would (the more opaque, the higher the impact) and finish with a sheer layer of gloss to give your pout some dimension. Don't forget to pile on the mascara!
