How to Fake a Summer Glow

Fake it till you make it! 3 steps to fake a summer glow with our easy sunkissed makeup tips and the best PONi products for bronzed, bright, shimmery summer skin.

Create a Glowing Base

Gorgeous sunkissed skin begins with a beautiful base! This creates the perfect foundation to apply your bronzer, blush and highlighter.

Prep your skin with a priming sunscreen

A great priming sunscreen will help minimise pores and give your skin a smoother look. It will also help your makeup stay put - even in summer time humidity. Most importantly, you’ll have your SPF protection sorted!

Apply a BB cream

A light, dewy BB cream is ideal for a natural looking, glowing base. BB cream offers a more sheer coverage than foundation - perfect for days in the sun - and offer bonus skin benefits including moisturising and antioxidant factors.

Have oily skin? Follow with a light dusting of powder to combat shine.

Beachy Bronzer

Give skin a sunkissed luminosity with bronzer. This is the first step in your natural sunkissed makeup routine.

Take a bronzing brush and apply bronzer to areas where the sun naturally hits your face; cheekbones, bridge of your nose and across your forehead.

Use a small circular motion to blend and diffuse harsh lines. Blending is the key to a natural finish so blend, blend, blend! It’s much easier to add more product than it is to take it away.

Go easy. Your bronzing goal is to give your skin a healthy-looking warmth, not paint it with streaks of colour.

A simple tip to avoid going overboard with product is to load the brush, tap the excess and start with your cheekbones first. Your cheekbones will need the most product. Then, using the leftover product, dust the bronzer across your nose and forehead.

Natural sunkissed makeup calls for Unicorn Chocolate Bronzer. A spectrum of bronze in a single compact, this silky smooth ombre pressed powder bronzer flatters all skin tones. It delivers a high pigment, long lasting radiant-matte finish. It’s cruelty-free too!

Peachy Blush

Blush complements bronzer by adding warmth to the cheeks and a flush of colour for a fresh-faced look.

You can use the same brush you used to apply the bronzer, it doesn’t matter if the products mix a little. Apply the blush to the apples of your cheeks starting where the bronzer along your cheekbone ends.

Meet your best blush ever - Unicorn Candy Blush. Blending from a subtle peach glow to a cotton candy pink this blush suits everyone. You’ll find the ideal pink match for your skin. With a bright pigment, silky texture and long-lasting finish you’ll achieve a beautiful, seamless colour.

Radiant Highlight

Finish your sunkissed makeup look with a radiant highlighter to accentuate your features. This step is a must for a shimmery summer evening look.

Using a soft, fan-shaped makeup brush apply highlighter to the top of your cheekbones (above the bronzer) in a swirling motion. Also apply a little product to the inner corners of your eyes, down the bridge of your nose, and on your cupid’s bow; this beautifully accentuates your lips.

Get radiant sunkissed skin with Unicorn Champagne Highlighter. The universally flattering shade of champagne looks gorgeous on all skin tones. Build and sculpt until the highlight level is just right for cheeks, brow bone, nose and eyes with this richly-pigmented, silky ombre powder.
