We all know that the sun is one of the biggest enemy of the skin aging, but some of us still spend hours trying to achieve that tanned look. I personally am so afraid of taking a sunbath, but love at the same time the sun-kissed look. So here it is how you can get a sunny glow without damaging your skin.
Apply a tinted moisturizer first or a foundation that gives you a sheer or medium coverage. Make sure you dust a little loose powder to set it but at the same time to create a smooth base for the bronzer that is to be applied.
Time for the bronzer, my favorite for every summer! You can apply it by using a Kabuki brush, making sure you shake any excess off before. Consider that when we tan, we do not get an evenly color. So go just over the areas that are more exposed. The easiest way to apply the bronzer is drawing the number three on each part of the face, starting with the forehead, continuing with the cheek and ending at the jaw line. Then add a little product over the bridge of the nose, neck and décolletage.
The best eye shadow color to illuminate the eyes is bronze. It will go with any eye color. Other colors that would work are golds, browns, beiges, preferably in a shimmery texture. If you want to skip the shadow, just a pencil in the colors that I have mentioned would look beautiful, as well. Black or brown mascara and you are almost done!
For the lips I recommend to keep them natural, just add a little gloss over.
And do not forget: if the sun is there, use a high SPF to protect your skin.Read More›
