Seriously, who doesn't love a beach vacay? Apart from all the R&R, one additional perk you can always look forward to when you're on holiday in a sunny place is the healthy, dewy glow you'll acquire.
But if you're stuck at your work desk right now as we speak, don't despair -- you can always fake that vacation glow! Here are the deets:
Create a sheer, dewy base
To coax a subtle glow, opt for a lightweight liquid foundation and mix it with your moisturizer, then apply with a brush for the most natural-looking, dewy finish. Set with just a light dusting of translucent powder along the T-zone.
Fake a golden glow by sweeping a bronzer that's one to two shades darker than your skin tone to your temples, cheekbones, nose bridge and chin and lightly buff using a circular motion.
Apply pink powder blush to the apple of your cheeks to complete the healthy flushed look.
Au naturel lips
Use sheer tinted balm for a hint of color.
Highlight your mane
Highlight a few sections of hair around your face in spots where then sun would naturally lighten strands. Ask your hairstylist to go just a couple shades lighter than your base color.
Zest up your mani
Give yourself a manicure or pedicure in a tropical-punch shade such as bold coral, lime or turquoise.
