So I’m like pale. Real pale...for Greek girl standards. 🇬🇷 I come from your stereotypical big Greek fam where not being bronzed 24/7 is against our human nature. Family gatherings I get, “you are much too pale, you must be sick” or “your skin isn’t even natural...go sit in the sun!” 😂 Truth be told, I have major phobia of early wrinkles and strictly try to stay away from unnecessary skin exposure. There really isn’t a safe way to be in the sun so I’m going to fake that bake until the day I die. Here are some of my favorite products to bring me back up to the Greek standard:
Tartesit Pro Glow palette - this little baby comes with 6 different shades of highlights and sculpts. From experience, works on most skin tones. The highlights range from white shimmer to that summer bronze. They are oh so creamy and dreamy and make my cheeks look sun-kissed to perfection. 💋 ☀️ • @colourpopcosmetics
x Shayla Boomin’ Luster Dust - loose bronzed powder. I dust on my cheek bones and collar bones to keep that sun illusion alive.
bronzer + highlight - a darker bronzer with shimmer that I use to contour my cheeks and forehead. • @sephora
Radiant Luminizing Drops - I use this one of two ways - put a couple of drops in my foundation to give it an illumination effect or alone. It is a liquid so it is easiest to apply with fingers to get the best application. hint: I’ve seen this on sale at Sephora for $8 many times this summer. • @physiciansformula
butter highlighter (have posted about before) - buttery, shimmery, and oh so budget friendly • @narsissist
liquid Laguna Bronzer - I add this to my foundation to make the shade darker when I actually have gotten a bit of color. I also use it alone just like the drops above. Definitely a more intense color than the Sephora drops ( but Sephora is a great budget friendly replacement for this!) I love this product and always have it on hand.
TANtalizer Baked Bronzer - classic bronzer! I like this product bc is it doesn’t over apply itself on your brush so you have more control over application ☀️Stay sun safe out there my beauties! What are your favorite fake-tan products? #motd
