CREATE THE PERFECT BRONZED FACE

Nothing screams summer like a golden glowing face, so we’re going to fill you in on our favourite makeup products that will help create the ultimate bronzed face to see you through the rest of the hot season..

First things first.. the base!

You need to create a hydrated and lightly bronzed base for your makeup and for this you NEED our face tan. It is adds a touch of subtle tan to your face, while it moisturisers your skin with yummy natural ingredients like coconut oil. It also includes an SPF 15 in it, and if you speak to any makeup or skincare pro they will tell you to start with a great sunscreen! It’s lightweight and absorbs quickly, so don’t stress about it being thick and oily like a lot of regular sunscreens.

Now onto the good stuff! Once you’ve applied our face tan as your base and let it absorb into your skin for a few minutes, apply your foundation/BB cream/tinted moisturiser. Whatever tickles your fancy! But remember to choose a shade that will blend nicely into your neck and chest, while matching the tan on the rest of your body.

Now, we have recently discovered our favourite illuminator ever and it comes in the form of Yves Saint Laurent. It’s a gorgeous “sunset” colour and is nice and creamy which makes it look more natural and dewy. Apply a small dollop on the tip of your finger and dab it from about 1cm from your hairline, along your cheekbone halfway. Then use the same technique to add along your brow bone, just under your eyebrow. And again on your cupids bow at the top of your lip. Carefully blend in by continuing to dab.

Time for some bronzer! We’re obsessed with this powder bronzer from Bobbi Brown. Lightly dust the bronzer on an angle just below your cheekbones to create a beautiful but subtle contour on your cheeks, then dust around your hairline and along your jaw bone. We also love to add a little dusting down the bridge of our nose.

By now you should be looking beautifully bronzed and glowing, so it’s time for some finishing touches!

For eyes, we’re loving this pretty eye palette from Charlotte Tilbury. They’re summery colours that will suit all eyes. Choose 2 shades, one lighter and one slightly darker. Contour the eye socket with the darker colour first, then use the lighter colour to fill in the remaining part of the eyelid.

For lips, you can’t go past a Tom Ford lippy. And this is our summer pick!

Now splash on a thick coat of your favourite mascara and you’re ready to go. This is a great day or night look. If you want to glam it up a bit more for night, you could add an eyeliner and a more bold lip. But we love this for a more natural summer evening look.

We hope you enjoyed hearing about our favourite summer makeup.

BASE FOR YOUR FACE- Tanning your face with Puretan

A base tan for your face…

A question we get asked a lot is whether it’s OK to use tan on your face. Which it absolutely is! However the problem is, that we wash and cleanse our face so often that the tan wears off our face faster than it does our body.

This causes your face to be several shades lighter than your body, which is not what you want. Especially if you’re going makeup free.

We’ve developed the perfect face tan which can replace your daily face moisturizer or sunscreen as it is hydrating, fast absorbing and has an SPF 15 included. The tan in our Face Tan is subtle so that you can build it up each day until you reach your desired colour.

The light weight, fast absorbing formulation allows you to put makeup straight over the top without it looking greasy.

Our Face Tan also just won Instyle Magazines Best Beauty Buy awards, so you know you’re onto a winner!

If you have blemishes, pigmentation or freckles on your face, our Face Tan is a great way to hide the imperfections and balance out your skintone.

With ingredients such as organic coconut oil and aloe vera, our Face Tan is also rich in antioxidants which help repair the skin and also assist with antiaging.

A tip to remember with your makeup when wearing fake tan, is that you may need to change your colour. Go a shade darker than you regularly would to avoid an obvious makeup line.

HOW TO HIGHLIGHT YOUR BODY LIKE A PRO

We’re going to teach you how to highlight your body in 3 easy steps!

Highlighter is a necessary part of your makeup routine. It makes you radiate and brightens up your makeup. It accentuates your cheekbones, makes your eyes glisten and frames your face.

But no body ever tells you how to highlight your body and make your best assets stand out.

Our body bronzer is a beautiful bronzing cream that instantly makes you glow.

Here are some simple tips on how and where to apply body bronzer that will have you highlighting your body like a pro in no time!

highlight

  1. Apply a line of the cream bronze from the top of your thigh, down the front of your leg down your shin and onto the top of your foot. Blend it in with your hands, leaving a glow all the way down your leg. This will elongate the look of your legs, making them look slimmer while glowing.
  2.  If you’re showing off your shoulders and collar bone, enhance your décolletage by applying a line of cream bronzer across your collar bone from one shoulder to the other. Blend the cream in with your hands, and rub any remaining bronzer on your chest area, down between your breasts. Be careful not to apply too much to your chest so that it looks more natural.
  3. Don’t forget about your back! If you’re wearing a backless dress or a low cut top, have your friend (or put your boyfriend to use!) apply a small amount of the cream bronzer to the top of your shoulders and on your shoulder blades.

Now you’re ready to light up the room at your next event or party.

pureTAN Instant Wash Off Bronzer is available now for $25.95.

RACING SEASON TANNING GUIDE

We’re in the full throws of the Autumn racing season which means it’s time to prepare your outfits, and how you’re going to pair your beauty with each look.

It’s no secret that a tan not only goes with everything, it has the magical ability to make your outfits look that little bit more amazing. Having a tan makes colours pop, and gives you a boost of confidence.

But don’t become a victim of a bad race day tan. You’ll be standing in broad day light so every streak and every blotch will be noticed. As well as the infamous “carrot” look.

Here is a guide to preparing the perfect tan for the Autumn racing season:

racing tan

  1. Exfoliate! Remove all dry and dead skin cells by gently scrubbing your skin in the shower or bath, with a loofa and an exfoliating body scrub. This will avoid any blotches as tan tends to stick to dry patches of skin.
  2. Hydrate: Keep your skin hydrated by regular moisturising and drinking plenty of water. But DO NOT moisturise clean skin before applying the tan. Moisturise regularly after you’ve washed your developed tan off.
  3. Tan ahead of time: We recommend applying your tan a couple of days before the races so that you have time for the colour to settle, any smell to disappear, and enough time to apply another coat if you haven’t achieved your preferred darkness yet.
  4. Don’t do these: apply deodorant or perfume before you’ve washed the tan off (you could end up with green arm pits), exercise while the tan is developing (your tan make get sweat marks) OR wear tight clothes until after you’ve had a shower (you could end up with terrible marks).
  5. Find the right colour for you: Now this is absolute key to not turning orange or looking streaky. If you’re fair skinned either use our light/medium tanning foam or our gradual tanning moisturiser. These will give you a nice subtle and natural glow and you won’t look like someone off Geordie Shore. This will also allow the opportunity to apply another coat if you would like to go a little darker.
    For darker skin tones, use the dark tanning lotion or rapid 1 hour tan. The rapid tan can develop in 1 hour, or can be left for 3 hours if you’re after a deeper colour.
  6. Use an application mitt: These will change your tanning life forever. Promise! They allow for super easy application, and ensure no streaks. Rub the tan on in a circular motion and I guarantee you’ll be tanned to perfection.
  7. Adjust your makeup: To keep your tan looking natural, you MUST change your makeup to suit your new skin tone. Find a lovely foundation that blends and make sure you apply it all the way under the chin, to the start of your neck.
  8. Finish with a touch of shimmer: On the day of the races, add a touch of body bronzer to your legs and décolletage to make sure you’re radiating glamour.

We hope these easy steps to a perfect race day tan help you prepare for a fun day out.
