Contouring and highlighting your face makes your skin glow, helps minimize or maximize facial features and gives you that finished sheen you see in magazines. Fantastic, right? Here are the products you need to achieve a flawless look.

Bronzer

Bronzer should enhance your complexion so pick something that compliments the natural pigments in your skin. If you have warm undertones, opt for something with a peach base. If you have cooler undertones, pick an earth-colored bronzer.

Highlighter

If you have a cool skin tone, go with a highlighter that is both light and iridescent. If you have a warmer skin toneβ€”stick with a highlighter with a warmer undertone.

Blush

Pinch your cheeks and take note of the color they turn right afterβ€”whatever shade you see should be reminiscent of the blush you decide to use. Still not sure? Go with a universally flattering apricot or rosy hue.

sun tan city.

Here at TGL, Laura and I are *huge* believers in sunless tanning. Sun spots and wrinkles are not cute, girls. Here are some of the products we use to achieve a flawless tan:

1. Bliss Soap n Scrub: It’s super important to exfoliate before using any form of sunless tanner. Bliss Super Minty Soap and Scrub is my go-to exfoliator. On top of sloughing off dead skin before my spray tans, it smells and feels amazing.

minty fresh.

 

2. VersaSpa: With VersaSpa you can choose a light, medium or dark shade with a clear or bronze finish. I highly recommend the clear unless you want to see results right away. The scent is minimal. There’s also a moisturizing option they call “prep” that is sprayed on in the booth like the tanning mist.Β  The entire process takes about 2 minutes, including a blow dry function that dries you off. Watch instructional video below before you go to avoid confusion while in the booth!

 

3. L’Oreal Sublime Bronze Mist: L and I swear by this ultra-fine mist! It’s perfect for touch-ups in between spray tans (our hands and faces fade QUICK, y’all…). No need to rub in and it dries super-fast. Spray it on, wait an hour…and POOF you have a smooth, streak-free tan. Great, right?

amazing.

 

4. Hoola Bronzer by Benefit: I’ve tried plenty of bronzers, but this one is my favorite. It’s completely matte with no sparkle which is nice! It gives a very natural finish, and I can get the sun-kissed skin I love without having to fry my face.

how cute!?

What sunless products do you swear by?
