As you know, the holiday season has started with the arrival of summer. Also, never-ending summer and sun-kissed skin are a dream for most of us. In this article, I am going to guide you about tanned skin makeup. If you are a tanned skin fan, too, you are in the right place like most of us!
Tanned Skin Makeup 101: Hydrated Skin
The first and the most important thing about tanned skin makeup is to protect the skin. You need to protect your skin from the sun and harmful UV rays, especially in summer, where your skin is more exposed to them. Also, for the makeup to look good on your face, you should not neglect to use a moisturizer after the sun cream.
Foundation and Concealer Using in Tanned Skin Makeup
Another important step of tanned skin makeup is to choose the foundation color that suits your skin tone. You can try on your neck while choosing a foundation suitable for tanned skin tone. I strongly recommend you choose a light foundation. Let your skin breathe during hot summer days. I think you should look at MAC Face and Body foundation.
You don’t even need to use foundation for tanned skin makeup because the color differences in the tanned skin are reduced. I preferably don’t like to apply foundation to my face, especially if it’s hot outside and the weather is humid. I think, instead of foundation, BB Cream is a good idea to use.
Concealer is another important step for a more flawless look. In this step, the first thing you should do for tanned skin makeup is choosing the right color, of course! Concealer colors range from pink to lavenders, peaches, greens, and so on. After applying the concealer under the eyes, you can also use it to cover skin imperfections. Tip alert! Yellow-hued concealer is a good helper to hide skin imperfections.
I think Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer is a good and neutral product. On the other hand, if you want a more intense concealer, you should look at NYX HD Studio Photogenic Concealer.
In this video, she does sun-kissed makeup without foundation. Also, before concealer, she uses a serum corrector for her under the eye. Then, she uses a cream blusher, as I mention later in the article. I think she picks good products and gives useful little tricks. You should watch this video to learn more about tanned skin makeup!
Best Trios: Blusher, Bronzer, and Highlighter!
Blusher is the best way to catch sun-kissed skin. You can get this sun-kissed look by applying it to your cheekbones and nose. When the topic comes to which formula is best in tanned skin makeup, CREAM!! Because cream formulas are last-longing and look brighter. Here is my favorite one and the one mentioned in the video.
I think tanned pale skins don’t have to apply more blush because their face already gets red when they tan, which is what we want! On the other hand, tanned brunette skins should choose darker blush. Here is how blusher might look on pale skin and dark skin.
Also, I have another special tip for you. You can use your lipstick as a blush! In my opinion, lipstick is the best blusher. It is very easy to carry in a bag and is suitable for tanned skin makeup with its cream formula. I prefer to use Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick as a blusher.
Can you apply bronzer to tanned skin? Of course! You should definitely use bronzer to add bronze sparkles to your face and look more tanned.
You can also resize your face by warming it up a little more with bronzer. Also, it is important to apply bronzer where the sun naturally falls on your face—specifically, forehead, cheekbones, and chest.
A liquid highlighter is a must for a moist tanned skin makeup look! Highlighter should apply above cheeks, on the top of the cheekbones, and above the lips.
Here is my best liquid highlighter that you can try on your tanned skin makeup. I think sunbeam color is more suitable for pale skins, whereas pure gold color is more suitable for dark skins.
Final Touches: Eyeshadow, Mascara, and Lipstick
Because of the color variation, eyeshadows are the best step of tanned skin makeup. If you are interested in eye makeup ideas more closely, I recommend you to visit this article to get inspired!
You can reflect the lively atmosphere of summer with green tones, oranges, coral colors, and blues. Bronzes and gold tones can blend in very well with the tanned skin makeup in dark skin. On the other hand, in the pale skin, blues and purples look more dynamic.
You can also find my favorite mascaras that I have chosen for you below. Additionally, using brown mascara can give you a natural look.
Lastly, you can prefer intense glitter and pearlescent lipsticks for lips. During the day, you can use lip gloss. For the night makeup, I can recommend you gloss with rouge combination.
When choosing lipstick color, you should stay away from nude color tones. Your face may look more tired because your skin color has already darkened. Instead, I think pink tones will look much healthier.
