    Step 1

    EYE SHADOW: Blend a bronze eye shadow across the whole eyelid. We used Rimmel London Glam Eyes Mono Eye Shadow in Spicy Bronze. “Take the colour underneath the eye," says Sonia. Use several coats of black mascara. On the shoot Sonia used Rimmel London Lash Accelerator.

    BRONZER: For a sun-kissed complexion apply Rimmel London Natural Bronzer with a large, soft brush. “Tap off any excess powder onto your hand, then apply under the cheek bones. Remember to blend. Sweep a touch across your forehead, temples and chin and the bridge of your nose for a genuine bronzed look,” says Sonia.

    HIGHLIGHTER: Max up your cheekbones with a highlighter. Sonia used Rimmel London Glam’Eyes Mono Eyeshadow in Glam Ice, which is an eye shadow but works brilliantly as a highlighter. “Apply sparingly to the areas of your face that would naturally catch the light: cheekbones, forehead and the nose,” says Sonia.

    LIPS: To finish off the look add a glossy lip colour in a sunny coral shade. On the shoot we used Rimmel London Vinyl Gloss in Be Famous. “I think there’s something really chic about using various textures of one tone across the whole face. We’ve used matte, metallic and glossy textures which gives it a sexy summer feel,” says Sonia.
