Video: Hannah Martin's 10 minute makeup for a summer glow

Even if you're staying in the UK this summer, there's no reason not to embrace a Grecian, sunset glow, so we enlisted the help of MUA Hannah Martin to create a bronzed summer makeup look that is just as at home in the back garden as it is in a beach bar in Santorini.

The base

Like any summer makeup should, the looks starts with SPF; Hannah opts for a glow-giving SPF to kick off the healthy, lit from within look, followed with a brightening CC serum to add a bronze hue. This can be used in place of foundation for a really natural skin look. She follows with a light layer of foundation for a barely-there base. Concealer is next to cover discolouration, dabbed in with the flat of the finger, not the tip, to avoid pulling the skin. Next up is a dusting of bronzer to match the colour of her face to her chest.


For a flush of colour Hannah adds a powder blusher, layering more for extra impact. Hannah adds highlighter on the top of her cheeks and the bridge of her nose, plus under the brow bone and the collar bone and tips of shoulders


A soft dusting of shimmering eyeshadow goes on the lower lid and crease, topped with a golden glitter over the top and into the inner corner of the eye. Mascara comes last to define the lashes.
