Sunkissed Tutorial


My first tutorial went down very well, it was my highest viewed post since starting Adventures of Wonderland which made me feel extremely happy, especially as this is quite out of my comfort zone. It was lovely to hear and read what people had to say about it, you were all very nice.

So here goes ... once again it is quite experimental and is the first time I have tried this sun kissed look and I have to say I love it! My skin is extremely pale and I don't really wear fake tan that much so it kind of gives off the more natural look as I was very aware of trying not to look orange (it's not a good look!)

How To Create:

1. I applied some Primer to create a base which helps the make up apply better and it also helps stay on for longer. 

2. I then took my Revlon skin lighs illuminator (it's fairly old so not sure if you can still buy this product) between the brows going up to the hair line on my forehead, down the ridge of my nose and across the cheekbones. 

3. If you have a few problem areas then apply your concealer to it before applying your foundation. 

4. Use the foundation of your chose either down the t-zone or your whole face. I used the Rimmel Match Perfection foundation in shade 101 Classic Ivory.

5.  Take a neutral eye shadow and lightly apply it to the lid, I used Mac Sweet Satisfaction and then Limit from my Urban Decay Naked 3 palette to the crease of my eye. Make sure you have blended this thoroughly. 

6. Take your mascara and use as much or as little as you would like. 

7. To give the actual sunkissed and dewy effect I used quite a lot of highlighter in this look, I took my Benefit Sun Beam highlighter to the cheekbones, to give it a bit more of a bronzed shimmer. I used my Real Techniques expert face brush in a dabbing motion to rub it in, and then used the tips of my fingers to make sure it was fully blended. Any highlighter will do just as good of a job if you don't own the sun beam :)

8. I then added a bit more concealer to the problem areas and dabbed it under my eye to get rid of any circles and loose pigments from the shadows. 

9. I used a bit of my Rimmel Stay Matte powder in shade 006 warm beige over oily areas of my face and down my neck to make sure that there are no foundation lines and it all blends in with the rest of my skin tone.

10. For my cheeks I used the No.7 sunkissed mosaic bronzing powder (once again this is a fairly old product but you can pick something up very similar.) I used the 3 motion, applying it just under the cheekbone, to the corners of my forehead and under my jawline to give a bit of a contour effect. 

11. Take a highlighter again (a powdered one preferably) and apply it to your cheekbones, down the ridge of the nose and between your brows on your forehead again. 

12. Make sure that everything is fully blended by using your powder brush. 

13. Take any brow product your loving at the moment and fill them brows in as much or as little as you like. I used my beloved Benefit Browzin in brunette.

14. And finally, use a neutral lipstick, if you want to add that bit of gloss to this then apply a little bit of neutral lip gloss over the top giving your lips that beautiful shimmer effect. Voila, you have your sunkissed look :)

I hope that these steps were easy to follow, I'd love to hear what you think of the look, and I would also love to see your sun kissed looks. Send me a photo on twitter to @Adventures_O_W using #sunkissed tutorial.
