Picnic season is upon us. Grab your finest wine (or the cheapest stuff you could find at Walgreens — we don’t judge), along with some fresh fruit, a large blanket and the longest French baguette you’ve ever seen. Pack your bag full of summer beauty essentials: a cooling face mist, a lippie to give your lips a touch of shine and a facial SPF because you know the rules (reapplying after two hours in the sun is a must). Then, take to your destination with a blanket in hands, your closest besties by your side and a music speaker that won’t let you down.

STEP 1:Apply your primer, followed by your favorite summer tinted moisturizer or foundation.
STEP 2:Brush your brows in an upwards motion, and fill in any sparse areas with an eyebrow pencil. Finish your brows by brushing through them once more.
STEP 3:Using an eyeshadow brush, lightly dust bronzer onto your eyelids for definition.
STEP 4:Line your upper lash line with a gel eyeliner. (Sian uses a shade of brown to keep the look natural.)
STEP 5:Curl your lashes, and apply mascara.
STEP 6: Apply concealer where you deem necessary and (optional) dust on a translucent powder.
STEP 7:To sculpt your cheekbones, apply bronzer to your cheekbones and some on your forehead to bring color back into your skin. Then, add some blush onto your cheekbones. Using a clean brush, blend your bronzer and blush out to create a sunkissed glow.
STEP 8:Finish with highlighter on the top of your cheek bones and brow bone.
