It’s like Olivia Newton John and John Travolta sing, ‘Summer days drifted away, but oh, those Summer nights.’ Those Summer nights indeed! Long evenings fading into warm, starlit night skies that just seem to last forever – sweet bliss.
As the days get hotter and the nights get longer, Summer nights require easy and effortless glamour. Sun-kissed cheeks enhanced with subtle contouring with natural looking skin with the definition of a strong brow. What you need is a look that will compliment your new silky sundress, romantic sunsets and cocktails with your friends under the stars.
We have compiled a list of our favourite evening time looks and our makeup products that will allow you to recreate them for yourself!
GLOW LIKE GOLD
Absolutely nothing says Summer nights like gold, glowing skin. By brushing bronzer along your cheekbones, forehead and across your eyelids, you will add depth and dimension. Highlighting above your cheekbones and lightly on your cupid’s bow will give you an iridescent shimmer all night long.
To achieve this look at home, we recommend our ‘Bad To The Bronze’ and ‘Sun-kissed’ Highlighters. Our concentrated highly pigmented highlighters are a must have for all lovers of glow. They can be used alone as a liquid highlighter, simply apply to the high points of the face and blend with a synthetic brush or sponge for dimension and glow. Get your glow on with our incredible highlighters.

TOP SUMMER BEAUTY TIP: INVEST IN THE PROPER TOOLS
“Most of us like to have a light base just to even out our complexion during the summer, but if not properly applied, it will slide off the face and end up looking like an oil slick,” says makeup artist Monika Blunder.
