  • Always prep your skin by cleansing, toning and moisturising.
  • Using your fingertips, apply a pea-sized amount of primer on your forehead, nose, cheeks and chin.
  • With a foundation brush apply a light covering of foundation for a flawless finish. Using finger tips pat on more foundation on the cheekbones to heighten luminosity.
  • Dab on luminous concealer to disguise blemishes and imperfections. For dark circles under eyes apply three dots of concealer to the under eye area blending with a tapping motion so as not to remove too much product.
  • Before bronzer, set your foundation with a dusting of finishing powder.
  • Lastly, sculpt your face with Gucci’s Glow Bronzer


  • Sweep the C shade of the Gucci Magentic Colour Shadow Quad in Tuscan storm onto the lid, crease and under eye.
