We’d all love to have that sun-kissed look as if we just got back from a beach vacation, but let’s face it. A nice tan is SO not worth all of the negative effects that UV rays can have on your skin. And here at Mineralogie, we are all about sun protection! So, skip the tanning salon and grab some bronzer. Just follow these tips to rock a fake but natural looking glow that you can feel good about!
Picking your shade.
Disclaimer: We are teaching you how to use bronzer believably. We beg you not to go too orange. Seriously. The point is to look like you spent a nice day out in the sun, NOT to look like an oompa loompa. That being said, here are some simple guidelines to finding the perfect shade for your skin. The trick is to finding a bronzer a few shades darker than your skin tone that will give you the appearance of a warm glow. When people tan, they generally either have a golden undertone or a pink undertone in their skin color. So, pick your shade according to how you naturally get color when you’ve been out in the sun.
If your skin is dark…
–Indian Summer: This is a warmer, more traditional bronzer. It can work for Medium skin tones as well, without appearing too orange.
–Sunswept: Available in pressed, this shade has a little gold shimmer to it.
And just to give you a little taste of what’s to come, we’ll be releasing a brand new pressed bronzer this summer called Barcelona Bronze! It’s the perfect shade of bronzer for everyone- not too light, not too dark. It has both peach and gold with a little sheen to it. We love it! But you’ll have to wait, because of course all good things come to those who wait. Sorry to be a tease, but I’ll keep you posted! 😉
Stay tuned for next week’s blog post. In Part 2, I’ll go into detail about exactly how and where to apply bronzer on your face!
