Glowing Summer Skin Your Ultimate How-To Guide

We all want to look gorgeously glowing, perfectly sun-kissed and as if we’ve just stepped off the beach, right? But if you’re wondering how to do it without a three-week holiday in St Tropez, read on

We’ve been chatting to Sharon Dowsett, Maybelline’s UK Make-Up Director, for the low down. Sharon is not your average make-up artist, she’s famous for working with top models like Jourdan Dunn, Gigi Hadid and Cara Delvingne, and is the backstage queen of make-up at London Fashion Week. So you know you can trust her.

She’s given us the perfect tips for getting amazing summer skin, with minimal products. Her hero must-have is Maybelline’s brand new Dream Bronze BB Cream (launching June 2015). ‘It’s all about having a BB wardrobe for summer’, says Sharon. And trust us after watching the making of this video, we’ve been converted to start one too. To see how to use the product, with specialist make-up artist tips from the wonderful Sharon, click on the video above.

But that’s not all. Sharon finishes off the look with a contrasting matte lip, using Maybelline brand new matte lipsticks, out in September 2015. And an on-trend sunset smokey eye, using Maybelline’s Big Eyes Eyeshadow in Luminous Brown, £6.99.

This is by far our favourite summer look of the season!
