3 Glowy, Spring-Ready Looks, Starring Our Brand New BLONZER

BEAUTY

Is your makeup ready for spring? This year, we’re loving a sun-kissed flush and glossy, hydrated lips — which is why we’re so excited to welcome our new GEN NUDE BLONZER. This clean, hybrid face color combines the rosiness of a blush with the warm glow of a bronzer in one swipe. Our BLONZER campaign is all about embracing this sunny look by pairing the luminosity of BLONZER with fresh, glowing skin and glistening lips (made possible by our new MINERALIST Lip Gloss-Balm).

We asked Carly Giglio (@carlygiglio), Global Makeup Artist at bareMinerals, to break down these glowy looks, step by step. Each makeup look is built around one of the three BLONZER shades: Kiss of Pink (a warm pink), Kiss of Copper (a copper peach), and Kiss of Rose (a bronzed rose).

In addition to its silky, blendable formula, BLONZER also has a unique application technique. Since it’s meant to emulate a sun-kissed flush, we suggest applying it in the areas where the sun naturally hits you, creating a “W” shape across your face. Start by placing a fluffy brush like the Seamless Shaping & Finish Brush on the outer bridge of your nose, sweeping in a “U” shape, downward to the apple of the cheek and up toward the temple. Repeat on the other side. Finally, connect the “W” by sweeping continuously from one cheek, over the nose, to the other cheek.

Ahead, embrace the sun-kissed glow of BLONZER — plus, learn pro tips along the way.

Kiss of Pink

What you’ll need:

ORIGINAL Liquid Mineral Foundation (Chi’s shades are Medium Tan and Golden Beige)

How to get the look:

  • Finish your look with a swipe of MINERALIST Gloss-Balm in the shade Enlightenment.

Pro tip:
