Never-ending summer state of mind and sunkissed skin is a dream most of us have. But, unless you live in Miami, you will have to work hard to maintain that perfect bronze tan all year long. Luckily, there are many options you can try and use to keep your skin perfectly tanned and glowing (Artesian Tan always recommends the healthiest ones).
In order to maintain spotless skin and tan when you are already tanned, you could simply use cosmetic products you already have in your makeup bag to improve your look. We prepared 6 make up tips for tanned skin to help you enhance your natural beauty and that sleek skin tan.
1. Make Sure Your Skin is Hydrated and Protected
You always need to take care of your skin, no matter what time of the year it is. But, in summer, when your skin is more exposed to the sun and harmful UV rays, you need to take care of it even more. If you don’t want to speed up the inevitable aging process, don’t forget to use sunscreen each time before you go out.
2. Avoid Foundation
There is no need to apply foundation to tanned skin. If you really have to, opt for a light foundation, to let your skin breathe during those hot summer days or cold winter months. Opt for a BB or CC cream instead of a combination of a primer and heavy foundation.
3. Focus on the Cheeks
Cheeks should be one of your main focuses. There is no better way to accentuate the bronze glow of your skin than to emphasize your cheek area. The important thing is to choose the best color of a blush or a bronzer depending on your personal preference and your skin tone. Rose and coral tones of blush will give more color to your face, however, using golden bronzer to emphasize your cheeks will add a glowing touch to your makeup look.
4. Make A Statement With Your Lips
Another thing to focus on when choosing the right makeup for tanned skin is putting an accent on your lips. We don’t have anything against natural lips, but your radiant skin will appear more blooming if you put on some red, orange, or coral lipstick. Choosing earth color shades is also a good way to go. If you decide for wine red color lipstick, you need to make the rest of your look simple and natural.
5. Put an Accent on Your Eyes
There are so many ways you can experiment when it comes to your eyeshadow. When your skin is bronze, the choices are truly endless. If you want to achieve a more sexy look, try dark smoky eyes. If you are more into maintaining the natural look, emphasize your eyes with an orange eyeshadow tone, and blend it well.
6. Hello, Highlighters!
Highlighters are always welcome, don’t you think? When you are done with your makeup, apply glossy highlighter above your cheeks -- on the top of your cheekbones, on the tip of your nose, and above your lips -- over your cupid’s bow. And ladies, try to control yourself -- don’t exaggerate!
Bonus tip: You should be aware of the fact that tanning with makeup on will not bring you results you are looking for. Makeup creates a barrier, and as a result, you will end up with an uneven tan.
Those were the tips that can help you achieve that perfect, bronzed glow and glossy, natural looking skin. With a little effort, the results will be stunning! If you like what you’ve read, try our tips, and don’t hesitate to contact us for more information.
