makeup for tanGetting a tan can be quite an experience. It’s the easiest approach to changing your look without doing anything too drastic. Tanned skin can be achieved through numerous ways such as sunbathing, indoor tanning and self tanning. No matter what method you choose, tanning will always result to getting the summer glow. Many individuals who are new to tanning can be a little confused on how to do their makeup.

It’s not that surprising since you have to work with a new palette of a different skin tone. It can be a little daunting at first but here are some things to consider to when it comes to putting on makeup and how it can enhance your tan.

Firstly, you want to identify your type of undertone. How warm or cool your tone determines your makeup. You should try to get cooler makeup if your undertone is too warm to avoid making it too saturated.

Another way you can enhance your tan is through contouring. Normally, you’d go for contouring through bronzer but with a little bit of effort, you can also contour your tan using self tanners. Makeup comes into place with the aid of highlighters. Since you’ve already defined the shadows using self tanners, highlighters can really bring out your look.

Good use of eye shadow will make you look great for any occasion. As with darker skin, try to choose eye shadow that can get more attention to your eyes. Try to avoid putting on too much of a lighter shade and make sure to blend the eye shadow well. You wouldn’t want to end up mimicking clown makeup, now would you?

All in all, try to match the intensity of your makeup that best complements your tan. Remember, your tan might differ from the time you spent under the sun so don’t use the same makeup recipe for varying shades of bronze.

Valentine Skin Beauty Tips

your skin on valentineValentines is a day a lot of us are looking forward to. It can be spent with your significant other, your family or even your friends; it’s a day to gratify relationships! Regardless of who you’re dressing up for, looking your best is an ideal approach for Valentines. Here are some skin care tips you’ll want to follow before the heart-laden February the 14th.

  • Get enough sleep before February the 14th. We know how much sleep can affect our body thus missing out on it can cause a lot of damage to our skin. Try to clock in at least 7 hours a day and avoid skimping on the Z’s. You can also put some cucumber to your eyes to lighten any eye bags if you have to burn the midnight candle.
  • Eat right. If you tend to stuff yourself with fast food and processed goods, you’ll be having a field day with acne and other skin issues. Try to swap your diet to much healthier sources and you’re going to appreciate clearer and glowing skin. A good food to chow on is salmon and walnuts since they will help you on keeping your skin glowing; they’re high on omega-3.
  • Try to keep your skin moisturized. Put on some moisturizer when you leave for work and before you sleep. You’ll notice a difference on how supple your skin can become. Having supple skin also aids in keeping it protected from any light lesions and thin cuts.
  • Make sure to cleanse when you have the time. Exfoliating gives way to new skin and removing any dead skin cells and any impurities that cling to your body. This is important to avoid any inflammation especially with clogged pores. Try to lessen cleansing and limit it to twice a week to avoid over sensitizing your skin.
