Orange Dewy Finish

We all have observed that sun-kissed makeup looks are all about dewy skin. But have you closely observed the colour of the dewy skin? It has a very light orange finish to it. Thus, if you are aiming for the perfect sun-kissed makeup look then what you need to have is the perfect orange dewy finish on your face, especially on the apples of your cheeks.

Cat Eyes with Golden Finish

Cat eyes look great with sun-kissed base makeup but they don’t have to be very dramatic. These should be simple and natural-looking cat eyes. Thus, you need to go for a nude cat eye look, and at the end, you can finish with some golden highlighter on the inner corners; you may even opt for a golden eyeliner. Just keep the golden shade subtle in your makeup.

Subtle Golden Look

The sun-kissed look is all about the golden highlighter. But, of course, you shouldn’t overdo it. The best way to achieve a golden highlight is to use a golden illuminator in a very small quantity and mix it with your foundation. This will give you an overall subtle golden look, which will give a sun-kissed effect.

Since sun-kissed makeup look is all about dewy finish you can use a gloss too. Thus, rather than choosing a matte lipstick wear a lip gloss on your lips. You can choose the lip gloss shade as per your liking but stick to nudes or neutrals and other light colours.

Balanced Bronze Look

Bronzer is the highlight of the sun-kissed makeup look but you need to limit its use. Many people think that one can use as much bronzer as they like but that’s not the right approach. In order to achieve a polished look, apply the bronzer in a subtle manner. Make sure you do not apply the bronzer all over your face; just stick to the right places.

Light Colours

Sun-kissed makeup look is all about using nude colours but just nude colors can make your overall look rather boring. To solve this issue, opt for the lighter shades of other colors every now and then. You can even try peach on your lips.

Self Tanner

And, if you are not a pro in makeup, then you can make your job easy with a self-tanner. It is a simple spray which you can spray on the areas of your face and then enjoy the final look. The process is called Tontouring.

Placement is extremely important here. So, make sure you apply your highlighter, blush and bronzer in the right areas. This will make your face look sculpted and sun-kissed.


Sun-kissed makeup look looks best on a clean and clear skin. Thus, keep your skin super clean. Regularly exfoliate your skin so that you don’t have any major blackheads or whiteheads.
