How To: Fake a Summer Glow

How To: Fake a Summer Glow
Without self-tanning products
Bronzed and highlighted makeup looks are in full effect now that it’s mid-summer. `Tis the season for vacationing to tropical climates and general fun in the sun, however, not all of us have the time to achieve an authentic vacation glow. Thankfully, OFRA has some quick and easy tips to fake a bronzed look for any skin tone just in case you haven’t indulged in that beach getaway just yet.
Step 1:
Absolute Cover Silk Peptide Foundation
Our new and improved hypoallergenic formula is oil-free and packed with antioxidants. The formula is buildable with a liquid (but not watery) consistency for medium to full coverage. The Absolute Cover Silk Peptide Foundation has a range of fourteen shades to suit all skin tones. The formula slightly oxidizes to a natural boost of color rather than an exact match which is great when you are looking for a slight tan with a natural finish.
Step 2:
3D Mosaic Roman Blush/Bronzer
This two-in-one bronzer/blush compact is a great time saver. With a quick swirl with your blush brush, apply to the cheekbone sockets towards the ear and work your way in to create a natural flush of color. Feel free to concentrate the lighter pigments on the apple of the cheeks for added color. Our 3D Mosaic Roman Blush/Bronzer is a must have for a naturally flushed summer glow.
Step 3:
Beverly Hills Highlighter
With five varying pigments, the Beverly Hills Highlighter can be used on any skin tone. The gold-bronze and pink-peach look great on warm skin while the icy pink and pearl white compliment cooler skin tones. Swirl all five pigments together to create a beautiful universal shade of rose gold. Pop it slightly above your blush/bronzer and blend out with a powder brush. For added glow, apply your favorite highlight shade in a c-shape on the outer corner of your eye and cheekbone as well as the bridge of your nose and Cupid’s bow.
Step 4:
Vitamin C Bronzer
Since the rest of your body likely won’t be tanned either, add a bit of bronze shimmer to your neck, chest and arms to even out the entire look. The OFRA Vitamin C Bronzer is available in two shades and provides a temporary healthy-looking glow to the skin. This is not a self-tanner so you can conveniently apply it just like a moisturizer as the last step in your summer glow routine.
