The art of contouring has been used by make-up artists since time began but how do you achieve the same enviable look at home on your face and body?
Contour like Kim with our He-Shi Fusion Multi Bronze. A rainbow palette of colours and finishes this can be used as one for an overall bronzed effect or try using the colours individually as eyeshadows or for contouring areas of the face. It’s also a handbag staple of Cosmopolitan’s Acting Beauty Editor Cassie Powney. Apply lightly at the outer temples and ears and blend forward onto cheekbones.
A good Spray Tan Therapist will know how to contour. Ask them for a little extra detail on your shoulders and chest, you’d be amazed at what they can do and with our range of spay tans you can choose from Gold, Dark, Supreme and even Rapid 1 Hour!
The Quick Fix
As a quick fix, you can use our gorgeous Luminous Shimmer (a wash off bronzer with a subtle glittering finish) to highlight features such as your collar bone area and cleavage. You can also use it along the front of the legs and on the outside of the upper arms for a slimming effect. Basically darker areas create the illusion of a smaller surface whilst lighter brighter areas look bigger.
The Body Pro
Start with a base tan. Our hero product (and Pixiwoo favourite) Express Liquid Tan can be layered to achieve your ideal depth of colour and leaves you with a beautiful bronzed finish. Once washed off, take our One Day Tan (used by Lisa Eldridge on the catwalks of Milan) to add depth to areas you want to appear smaller. As a general rule of thumb, darken under or inside e.g darken the inside of arms and highlight the outside- and the same for your legs, letting the tan fade out towards knees and elbows. When it comes to Contouring your décolletage blend a small amount of the dark shade on top of collar bone and Sweep the remainder underneath the bone then highlight with shimmer or fusion bronze directly on to the bone and blend using a mitt or Kabuki Brush.
