Nobody is perfect, and at some point we all deal with imperfect skin caused from a variety of conditions. I often battle with sunspots and age spots, which led me on a journey of experimenting with many products and beauty treatments to find the ones that would give me an even skin tone and hide my imperfections. After countless tries, I found that these five tips not only helped me achieve a flawless skin tone, but the products used would work on most skin types.
Using a tinted moisturizer is one of the easiest and healthiest ways to even out your skin tone, and give your skin a healthy glow. Make sure that your skin is clean before you apply it. I found that giving myself a mild facial before I applied my tinted moisturizer gave me the best results. Pull all of your hair back. Use a sponge to spread your tinted moisturizer evenly over your face and neck. Don’t forget the neck area because you don’t want your face and neck to be two different colors. Also, make sure to rub it as close to your hairline as possible. I found doing these tips not only helped to even out my skin tone, but it also gave me a natural sun-kissed look.
Use The Right Bronzer
Choosing the right bronzer will enhance your sun-kissed look and cover your imperfections. Select a matte bronzer that is one or two shades darker than your skin tone. I found going to a makeup artist helped guide me towards finding my perfect shade. The major tip I learned was always choose a bronzer with a yellow undertone not orange. You can find a makeup artist at most major department stores that feature a cosmetic department.
The Perfect Makeup Brush
The key to creating an even skin tone is using the right makeup brush. A high-quality brush properly designed will help you to distribute your makeup evenly over your skin’s imperfections. I found that a kabuki brush works best for wide coverage. It features a short handle that’s easy-to-hold, and it has a dome head with short bristles that’s designed for even coverage.
Applying Your Bronzer
Now that you have the perfect bronzer and brush, you need to apply it correctly if you want to achieve a flawless look. Dip your brush in your bronzer, then tap the brush on the edge of your container to remove the excess powder. Using small, circular motions, begin applying your powder on your forehead and work your way down to the top of your nose. Dip your brush back into your bronzer, then sweep it over your cheekbones, neck, chin and decolletage area. Make sure that you blend it completely to get a flawless skin tone.
Complete your flawless look with the perfect blush. Applying a pink blush with a little shimmer on the center of your cheekbones will give your face a youthful glow. It will also beautifully enhance your sun-kissed even skin tone.
Follow these tips, stay out of the sun, and soon you’ll have a flawless skin tone that everyone will envy.
