We’ve known that makeup is always complimenting our looks. No matter what event we’re going to, makeup is always a great go-to, but did you know that tanning is a much appealing and less complicated approach. Tanning can give you a semi-permanent approach to improving your look daily.
While you can’t just tan your face exclusively through sunbathing or indoor tanning, we have self-tanning to rely on that. Self tanning is the manual application of a tan, dubbed as a fake tan by some, thus it can work much like how makeup does. Normally, you’d be using bronzers to help contour your tan but since bronzers are wiped off at the end of the day; this is where self-tanners do their work.
Despite being an applied method to tanning, self tanners last for quite some time on your skin thus cut down the time of putting on makeup. Here are some ways to help you contour and highlight using self tanners:
If you want to go for contouring, it’s best to apply a slightly darker tone of self tanner in certain areas. Remember, you’re not limited to your face for contouring so try to practice on which areas you can work out so you can contour well.
For highlight, you’ll want to use less self tanner on the areas you want to be lighter than your normal tan. It can take some time to get this sorted out especially when you’re new to self tanning. While you can’t totally leaves these areas with less tan, putting on a layer of highlighting make up can ease the deficit.
Remember, there’s only so much self tanning can do when it comes to contouring and highlighting your looks. While it may be a semi-permanent application, makeup can still work wonders to help improve your appearance. If you’re new to self tanning, try to experiment on what works best for you.
