J-Lo, Jessica Alba and Kim Kardashian all have this skin tone and look fabulous in deep browns, bronze and copper shades of makeup. You too can look like you've just been sunning yourself on an exotic beach…even in the middle of winter! Here's how to get this look:
Start by creating a smoldering eye. For this you will need a warm, earthy palette. Look for a trio compact that has a neutral beige shade, along with metallic bronze and dark brown.
Apply the lightest shade on the lid, followed by the medium shade. Use the darkest shade in the crease, at the corners of the eye and on the lower lash line. Then use a chocolate brown or espresso shade of eyeliner to define the eye, and a mascara to build up your lashes.
On your cheeks, choose a light bronzer with a hint of shimmer. Apply it over the apples and towards the temples, like Jessica Burciaga has done here.
Finally, make your lips look luscious by applying a soft beige or apricot shade.
Polish it all off with a super sexy hairstyle, like Burciaga's sun-kissed waves.
