Let’s face it, everyone looks better with a sun-kissed glow, no matter how you got it. Now that you’ve achieved perfectly bronzed skin, here are some beauty tips that make sure your glow is always seen at its best.
Don’t Skimp on Hydration for Your Skin
No matter how you got your golden glow, you’re going to want to take care of it. This means being meticulous about your skincare, especially moisture. Before you apply any makeup, or even if you are taking advantage of your golden skin to have a “woke up like this moment,” you’re going to want to make sure your skin is hydrated.
Makeup Tips to Highlight Your Glow
Go light on the makeup in general, especially for everyday looks. Skip the foundation, your bronzed skin should be enough, and if you go too heavy on the foundation you could extinguish its glow. If you need more coverage, use a tinted moisturizer or a CC cream instead of your regular foundation.
Choose a lighter color for your eyes, such as a warm orange or a pale pink. These colors will complement your skin and awaken your face. Teal is also a good choice for a fresh look. Use a cream blush on your cheeks and apply where the sun would naturally kiss your face. Red, orange, or coral are great for lips. Keep the rest simple and let your lips make a statement.
Wear the Right Colors to Show Off Your Glow
White is the quintessential choice for highlighting tanned skin, it makes everyone’s tan look a little deeper. Try pairing a light, pastel top in lilac, baby blue, or pale pink with white shorts or pants for a fresh look.
However, clothes in bright colors also look great against sexy, bronzed skin. Hot pink, bright yellows and corals, forest green, turquoise, and cobalt blue all look good against a tan. And don’t forget the magic of magenta.
If you are bold enough, neon colors also accentuate a golden glow. You may not want to wear neon to work or a formal occasion, but they’re fun to wear when you are out and about on the weekends.
Color Your Nails
And last, but not least, pay attention to your nail polish, Nude nails may be popular, but when you have a good glow going on, you’ll want something a little brighter on your fingers and toes. Try a vivid fuschia or cornflower blue.
