You don’t need to bake in the sun to get bronzy tan skin. Not everyone has the time to lay down and get some sun at the beach or by the pool. Lucky for us, we have beauty products that can help give us that sun-kissed color. Or at least even out the tan we unsuspectingly got already.
Take Andi Eigenmann, for example. The actress recently sported a natural summery look which highlighted her tanned skin. This inspired us to cop products that’ll give us that bronzy glow sans the tanning lotion. Just remember to choose the right tones to match your skin so you won’t look awkwardly dark in some areas.
For a seamless glow, apply Michael Kors’ Bronze Powder on your cheekbones and temples. The silky formula will give you that just-got-home-from-the-beach radiance you always wanted. Available at Beauty MNL.
If you’re a natural morena, the brown tones of Sleek Makeup’s Superior Cover Pressed Powder might suit you. This lightweight powder is best for setting your makeup. It also gives you a matte finish if you don’t want to look too shiny. Available at Landmark Makati.
Give your cheeks some color with a pink-toned bronzer. The Tarte-a-Tan Antioxidant Bronzing “Coco” Powder from VMV Hypoallergenics gives your skin a sun-kissed appearance, as well as a light flush. It also has virgin coconut oil which minimizes fine lines, acne, and darkening. Available at SM Aura.
NARS’ Sun Wash Diffusing Bronzer promises to give you natural-looking skin that looks warmer and more perfected. The powder is formulated to capture light and diffuses imperfections instead of enhancing it. Perfect for days when your skin isn’t cooperating. Available at Rustan’s The Beauty Source.
Take your sun-kissed glow to another level with Benefit Cosmetics’ Sun Beam liquid highlighter. Just blend it out on the high planes of your face, and you’ll achieve a not-so subtle bronzed-up look. Available at SM Megamall.
Don’t have time to apply a full face of makeup? Grab theBalm’s BalmShelter Tinted Moisturizer for lightweight coverage with added UV protection. You can achieve a quick tan by choosing a slightly darker shade. Available at Beauty Bar.
