Keep look­ing tan-fas­tic after the hols

East Kilbride News - - THE POWDER ROOM -

So the sum­mer is over and our lovely, glow­ing tans are fad­ing as fast as our hol­i­day mem­o­ries.

We all hate when we start to lose our healthy, golden hue. You start to feel washed out and dull after look­ing so fresh and nat­u­ral dur­ing the sum­mer months – es­pe­cially after a sun­shine hol­i­day.

The last thing we want to do is plas­ter on the bronzer be­cause we feel and look too made up in com­par­i­son to how we were on our hols.

Ideally we want to keep the tex­ture of our skin light and glow­ing, but al­most like we have no make up on... so sal­vage ev­ery bit of that fad­ing tan. You could start us­ing some self tan, which when ap­plied well is amaz­ing and makes you feel great.

But re­mem­ber to keep your make up soft on top to let that lovely colour shine through.

My ab­so­lute favourite post hol­i­day foun­da­tion is MAC Face and Body.

It’s so light­weight and sheer and it leaves your skin look­ing smooth and ra­di­ant.

You can af­ford to go a lit­tle darker with Face and Body be­cause you can blend it out a lit­tle fur­ther and you will never see the join.

It’s so easy to ap­ply too. Use a big stip­pling brush and ba­si­cally buff it into the skin. The more you buff, the more you glow.

It’s fab­u­lous and a big favourite with pro­fes­sional make up artists.

I use it on ab­so­lutely ev­ery­one to achieve a beau­ti­ful nat­u­ral tex­ture.

This re­ally works a treat for brides if their skin is de­hy­drated and dull.

It’s avail­able in two sizes and lasted for ages. I’ve found the shade N 3 to be great on most peo­ple, ocas­sion­ally go­ing darker to N5 or much lighter to N1.

Good luck keep­ing that glow go­ing.

Go with the glow Keep your tan
