For those of us who spend our days in an office under fluorescent lights, or who make daily SPF a priority, getting a natural tan is not always an option. Fortunately for us, Stila has created a great lineup of tinted moisturizer, bronzers and luminizers to create that sun-kissed glow without having to step foot in the sun.
The first step in any beauty regimen is your moisturizer, especially in the summer. Trying to create a tan look includes the use of bronzer and without being properly moisturized, it can cause your skin to look flakey and dry. The Stila Bronzing Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 20 will not only help protect against the sun’s most damaging rays, but it will also give you the first step in glowing skin.
The Glowing Powder
Setting your makeup is one of the most important things in the routine, so having a powder that doesn’t dry your skin is very important. The Stila All Over Shimmer Powder will help keep your makeup in place, but also give you the extra shimmer you need in order to not have your face cake up when you apply the bronzer.
The Sun Kissed Bronzer
Probably the most important item is the right bronzer. Having a bronzer that isn’t the right shade for your skin can lead to looking orange and like you got a bad spray tan. Stila Sun Bronzer works great with almost all skin tones; the trick with this is just applying the proper amount and doing it evenly. Be sure not to put a massive amount on your brush before application, that way you can ensure there is the same amount across your whole face.
The Self Adjusting Blush
You never want to just leave your face with only bronzer applied because it gives you the same tone across your whole face, nothing stands out. So adding a little blush is a great way to add a pop of color and brighten you up. Stila Custom Color Blush in Self Adjusting Bronze is “one size fits all” and automatically adjusts to each individual’s pH level, which is awesome because if you get a little extra sun one weekend you won’t have to worry about running out to buy a new shade!
The Stila Sun Highlighter is also a great way to add an extra bit of color as well. Applying this under your eyes or blush will brighten up those areas of your face that can appear sunken in without a good night sleep or just stress. It also will give you a more dynamic look so your glow looks more natural.
