Wow! The stunning Zendaya graces us with her irresistible bronzed glow and pink lip for the August 2016 cover of ‘Essence’ magazine. Keep reading to find out how to get this perfect summer glow.
Zendaya, 19, has quite the fashion sense – from eccentric to edgy, the star has no problem making a statement, beauty or fashion-wise. But for the August 2016 cover of Essence, we get a more natural approach from the star, highlighting all of her best features! She’s decked out in the prettiest floral off-the-shoulder top and ribbon-tied pants, setting the tone for the overall effortless look. Her summer glow and curly tresses are the perfect finishing touches – it’s safe to say we’re so obsessed!
Recently, Zendaya posted a photo on her Instagram of her cover for Essence magazine and we’ve been determined to find the best way to recreate this glowy makeup look. She sported full, thick brows, bronzed cheeks and a pinkish nude lip — the perfect recipe for an easy everyday summer look.
When we say easy summer look, we really mean it. You only need three beauty products to achieve Zendaya’s cover look — bronzer, a nude lipstick/lip balm/lip gloss (whichever you prefer), and of course, highlighter! For bronzer, we recommend Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Matte Bronzer. This will give you a healthy, natural-looking tan without overdoing it. A matte bronzer will balance out the shimmer you get from your highlighter, so you don’t look like a glittery mess.
As for highlighter, we recommend using the Becca x Jaclyn Hill Highlighter in Champagne Pop. This is the holy grail for a lot of beauties and we can definitely see why — it amplifies your natural radiance and adds a subtle, dewy glow to accentuate your cheeks. Perfect for achieving a sun-kissed touch for your look.
For your lips, it’s really whatever you feel the most comfortable in. A lip stain is probably the most natural, but if you want to keep the shine, we recommend using a creamy nude gloss overtop. Some of our favorites are Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Gloss in Café Au Lait, or Buxom Lip Cream in Hot Toddy.
