Ready. Set. Sparkle & Glow because party season is here!
Get your party sparkle on, pour yourself a glass of something bubbly and turn up the volume on your favorite dance tracks to create the ultimate lounge-room house party this year. Here's our top tips on bringing the party!
Highlight your best angles
There is no easier way to add a party glow than by dabbing a touch of highlighter or illuminiser and dusting a little bronzer to your best angles.
Want to know how to create the contoured strobe-light effect without looking like an orange disco-ball? Follow these simple steps when applying your bronzer/highlighter for party glow success!
Sweep a small amount of bronzer with a clean brush just below your cheekbones, on the hairline of your temples and the angle of your jawline. Make sure you touch on the areas of your face where the sun would hit naturally. Next step is to blend, blend, blend with your fingertips (clean fingers!) or a sponge. Make use of whatever product is left on your brush to add a touch of warmth to the bridge of your nose, chin, and neck. Our fave natural bronzer? Inika Organic Baked Mineral Bronzer in Sunbeam
When applying your highlighter you want to think about bringing light to the high points of your face - the top of your cheekbones, below and top of the arch of your brow, the bridge of your nose and a dab in the cupid's bow of your top lip. For best effects apply your highlighter using your fingertips or a brush and blend well to avoid any harsh unnatural lines.
We are LOVING the Inika Organic Light Reflect Cream. You can check out more clean & green bronzers & highlighters here!
