On last week’s episode of “Project Runway,” the designers were challenged to create a New York Fashion Week street look. Mary Kay Global Makeup Artist Luis Casco created a great faux tan makeup look to perfectly complement one of the winning fashion designs.

The faux tan look is universally flattering for all seasons and women of all skin tones. Follow Luis’ three simple steps to keep you glowing year-round!

For a natural faux tan look, the key is to apply the perfect combination of blush and bronzer.

1. Blush

Use brush to apply blush on cheeks and any areas the sun would naturally hit.

Luis’ insider tip: “My little secret is to use a blush with some pink in it.” Luis’ favorite blush color is Mary Kay Mineral Cheek Color in Shy Blush.

2. Bronzer

Choose a bronzer with a matte and shimmery effect like Mary Kay Bronzing Powder.

Apply bronzing powder right over blush to get the famous “J. Lo glow.” Also apply to the neck area.

Keep the look blended and natural by using a high-quality brush for application. Gradually layer on bronzer to get a gorgeous sun-kissed glow.

3. Finishing Touch

Set the glowing look with Mary Kay Translucent Powder. Apply to any areas prone to oiliness like the T-zone and all over the face to set makeup.
