Natural glow

Get a natural tanned look with makeup and no sun damage

We love the look of a tan but not the damaged skin that goes with sun exposure. Follow these tips to make your face and body glow:

• Bronze your face
• Colour cue
• Glow all over
• Sun-kissed makeup

Bronze your face

One way to get that sun-kissed look is to use Ombrelle Sunless Tanning Face Cream, 60 mL/$13—it also contains SPF15, saving you one more step before you head outside. Or here’s how to fake that warm bronzed glow in three easy makeup steps:

Exfoliate first with Dermaglow Miracle Facial, 50 g/$25, to smooth your skin and guarantee a streak-free finish.

Blend Rimmel London Metallic Face and Body Gleam, 30 mL/$7, all over your face, shoulders and décolleté for a soft glimmer.

Make sure your glow shines by keeping makeup neutral on the rest of your face with Rimmel London Lip Dazzlers in Crazed, $7, and Lancôme Définicils Waterproof High Definition Mascara, $27. Bright colours clash with a bronzed face.

Colour cue

Bronzers come in gels, powders or palettes that may combine a variety of shades in one compact. Here’s how to get the most natural-looking match if you have:

• fair skin
Try a gel or cream with a soft rose, champagne or coral undertone.
• medium skin
Try a bronzing powder in a classic terra cotta shade.
• dark skin
Try a bronzer with a gold shimmer or red undertone.
