Harold James Shares His Seamless BTS Bronze & Highlight Technique

When it comes to creating glowy makeup looks, Harold James has the magic touch. The Parisian artist’s seamless, radiant and fresh approach to makeup, has not only made James a standout in Rose Inc’s Artist in Residency program, but also the perfect artist to create inspiring and luminous summer skin for Rose Inc’s summer Solar makeup campaign.

Using Rose Inc’s new Solar Infusion Soft-Focus Cream Bronzer and Solar Radiance Hydrating Cream Highlighter, James turned to thin layers and thoughtful application for glowing, yet minimal makeup that deserves a closer look.

We checked in with the celebrity makeup artist on set for his foolproof summer complexion protocol, listed below. 

“I wanted to make sure the skin looked natural and radiant.”

"The natural heat from your hand makes the blending look super seamless..."

“...it distributes the product very well. It’s more precise than others I’ve used.”
