Summer skin truly shines when choosing beautiful, rich browns that work exceptionally well with bronzer (and warmer colors in general!). Although we tend to think of darker shades like cocoa and malt as trends for the fall and winter seasons, a shimmery monochromatic look updates your current concept of boring brown!

Start by applying a golden brown shimmering base color, such as Cangiante Dimensional Eyeshadow in Noccia, using a #25 Concealer Brush. The wet/dry formula allows for a variety of finishes, from a sheer sheen to a glittering glow! Plus, Cangiante shadows are enriched with Vitamin E for the hydration and protection of delicate skin in the eye area. Blend the color all over your lid for a stunningly prismatic, saturated effect!

To create depth within the crease of the lid, use the #33 Flat Eyeshadow Brush and a matte cocoa brown shadow. The center shade from our Baby Dome Palette in Terrachino is a soft malted matte brown, with a silky texture that blends effortlessly.

Place this softly into the crease and blend outwards. Construct a pretty cat eye with Crème Gel Liner in Felis Brown, altering the thickness to your personal taste…for a more subtle eye keep the line thin, and for all out drama, apply more heavily with a big flick upwards at the outer edge! Enhanced with a subtle pearl finish, our Gel Liners give added depth and dimension without ever looking dull or flat! The #11 Slanted Liner Brush will help you to draw the more precise line. A compact diagonal cut brush head sets close on the lash line for a clean, vibrant brush stroke.

Achieve a subtle smoky look for your lower lashline by again using the Baby Dome Palette in Terrachino, but the darkest color this time, a deep matte brown. Drag the shadow underneath your lashes using the #12 Liner/Brow Brush.

Apply Volume Plus Mascara to the top and bottom lashes. Use a zigzag motion from the roots to tips of lashes, and apply product more generously to outer corner of the lash line to extend and open eyes.

Clean and conceal the under eye area by using Perfect Canvas Liquid Concealer to conceal and highlight. The velour tipped, flow-through applicator delivers product effortlessly, evenly and streak-free, while Arnica extract helps to increase blood circulation and minimize discoloration.

Outline the lips using our Duo Lip Pencil in Chocolate/Naked to keep the brown theme going! The smudge resistant, resilient formula remains intact and helps reduce feathering. Next fill in the entire lip area with Thinstick Lipstick in Siena (a light chocolate with slightly pink undertones). The waterproof, medium to full coverage is creamy and vivid, with a demi-matte finish.

Finish the lips off with just a touch of shimmer! Perfect Shine Lip Gloss in Dolce is a barely there nude brown that slicks lips with a smoothly comfortable, cushiony later of color that conditions and repairs with aloe vera and vitamin E.
