Face Talk beauty tip – quick contour
Time saving contour made simple
Self tanner equals time saver. Tired of contouring every morning to achieve the sculpted look you desire? Or maybe you skip this step all together because it’s too time consuming. Try using a sunless tanning solution as contour once or twice a week. Here’s how…
Cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize your skin in the evening then apply self tanner (airbrush works best for this) everywhere you would normally apply your contour to create definition such a under your chin and along your jawline, under your cheekbones and sides of nose. You can lightly apply in other areas if you prefer an overall bronze look.
When you wake the next morning, if there are any goofs, use a damp washcloth and gently rub over area you would like to soften. For best results use a sunless tanning solution such as AirPro Bronze that has a built-in bronzer so you see the product as it is being applied.
Proceed with makeup by applying foundation only where needed, a bit of blush, eyes and lips. Most likely you’ll feel that less makeup is necessary when you’re naturally contoured.
This process can also be done just before airbrush makeup application although sponge application will disturb placement of tanning solution so we recommend using airbrush. Repeat once or twice a week as needed.
