A stunning tan can instantly transform you into a glowing goddess. A healthy, radiant look doesn’t need to come at the expense of sun damage – while bathing in the luminosity of the sun can give you a beautiful bronzed look, bronzing the natural way is much safer. Not to mention that you’ll also protect your skin from premature ageing!
Get on board with the natural look this summer and enhance your pretty features with a glow, JLO would be proud of.
If you’re new to faux tanning, you may be a little apprehensive. After all, no one wants to look muddy or streaky. Luckily, there are plenty of products on the market which can give you a stunning, naturally bronzed look.
If you’re a faux tanning newbie, look for coloured/tinted tanning products which will help to give you a guide colour. These products usually naturally darken over time, or can be washed off to leave a fabulous natural glow.
You may also find using a one-day tanner which can be immediately washed off is the best way to go. These types of products are great if you have a special occasion to attend and only require a very temporary tanned look.
Before you apply any tanning product, exfoliate your body thoroughly. This will eliminate any rough or dry skin patches to ensure your tanning product applies evenly. Additionally, apply moisturiser all over to smooth and soothe your skin.
Once you’ve applied a faux tan, create a beautiful glow with a liquid or powder highlighter. If you prefer an all over glow, a shimmering body oil will enhance your bronzed look. Alternatively, use a large powder brush to apply a powder highlighter over the collar bone and your décolletage.
A powder bronzer or bronzing pearls is one of the most popular products for attaining a Grecian goddess glow. Apply a powder bronzer on your face in the shape of a number 3.
Start by applying powder, left to right across the top of the forehead, working towards the nose and then slightly under the chin. This gives you colour where you would naturally catch the sun.
Finish your look with a peachy or sandy coloured cream eyeshadow and add a soft pop of pink on your lips.
A foundation trick
If applying bronzer sounds scary, don’t worry. This simple foundation trick is super easy and makes bronzing a breeze. Use a liquid bronzer and mix a drop with your foundation.
If you prefer lighter coverage, you can simply add a pea sized amount of moisturiser to your foundation to help thin the product out.
