1. Switch to a darker foundation and a darker concealer.
Your skin color has deepened, and your makeup colors should as well. And please, please, please don’t continue to use the same concealer under the eyes in the summer that you used in the winter. To help you get the perfect match, I suggest using a makeup product that can multitask as your foundation and concealer like Authentic Beauty’s Magic 3 in 1 Foundation
And remember that bronzer is meant to only give you a touch of sun and is not supposed to replace a natural tan, a spray tan, a tanning lotion, or any of the above. Be subtle. It should be used as a subtle highlight to your cheeks.
2. Instead of blush, switch to a shimmery bronzer.
Your skin is golden now and you can enhance it with glistening warmth on your cheeks. Opt for a color like Sedona. If you still want to add color, use a peach colored blush instead of pink. The Angle Cheek Brush is the perfect brush for applying both bronzer and blush.
3. If you usually wear a brown eye liner, switch it up with a black eye pencil or a deep navy.
Navy looks especially beautiful with the orange undertones in a tan. Authentic Beauty’s black eye pencil has a rich, creamy texture and a deep color pigment that glides on flawlessly and is easily blended for a soft natural look.
4. Lip colors in shades of glistening bronze, gold, and peachy nudes look gorgeous on tanned skin.
Be sure to outline the lips with a matching lip pencil to make them stand out when using a lighter lip color.
Authentic Beauty makes their own lipsticks and lip glosses at their custom blended lipstick station inside the salon/studio so you can finally have the perfect lipstick customized entirely for you and your skin tone
6. Eyeshadows in shimmery gold and bronze shades enhance your eyes while still looking natural!
