We’re two days away from spring’s official start; and after a string of gorgeous sunny days, I’m ready to warm up my makeup look. celebrity spray tanner Svetlana Feller, who has worked with Fergie, Rihanna, and Denise Richards; and who is also the owner of the ‘Spray Di Sole’ studio and product line, is here to share her makeup tips and recommendations to compliment a faux golden glow.
Before applying any bronzer or makeup, you need a good base. For moisturizing all skin types and calming your skin down in time for summer, we love ‘Dermarest Eczema’ lotion. Don’t let the word “eczema” scare you off. It works beautifully for all skin types, yet is medicated enough to help cure dry spots and problem areas; such as eczema and/or psoriasis.’Dermarest’ can be found at drugstores. (www.dermarest.com)
We love the look of a sun-kissed glow at ‘Spray Di Sole’, but only a fake one! Keep your skin safe from the sun’s harmful rays with ‘Coola’ organic sun care. From ‘Baby SPF 50’ to ‘Spray 35 Pina Colada’, Coola is by far the best sunscreen on the market. (www.coolasuncare.com)
Now on to the fun stuff – the makeup! ‘Spray Di Sole’s Sun Gelee’ ($50, www.spraydisole.com) is a great product to give you that amazing sun-kissed glow without any of the sun’s harmful rays. Available in one shade, this works for all skin types and gives a golden glow perfect for the warmer weather!
To complement your bronzed look, try some of the makeup looks and tricks below!
The ‘Almay Intense i-color shimmer-i kit’ eye shadow palettes make coordinating colors super easy. ‘Almay’ experts have coordinated a shadow trio that’s designed to intensify your unique eye color and will be sure to pop against golden skin. They have great options available for baby blues, smoldering browns, honeyed hazels, or exotic greens – so simple to find your perfect color match!
Set off your intensified eyes with ‘Blinc’ mascara. It claims to be smudge proof, and truly is – no makeup remover needed! Just rub off with water and you see the silicone tubes come off on your fingers, amazing! (www.blincinc.com)
The ‘Blush/Bronze Duo’ by ‘NARS’ in ‘Orgasm/Laguna’ is a smart way to highlight the cheekbones. Just smile and apply as needed to the apples of your cheeks with this 2 in 1 blush that gives a healthy bronzed glow and a tiny flush of blush - great for all skin tones! (www.narscosmetics.com)
The nude lip never goes out of style and looks gorgeous against a bronzed glow. Perfect for any skin tone, ‘Youngblood’ gives you all you need for a kissable, soft, sexy pout with their lip pencil in ‘Au Naturel’, lipstick in ‘Blushing Nude’, and ‘Mighty Shiny Lip Gel’ in ‘Bared’. (www.ybskin.com)
For a more intense look, go for neon! (Like Rihanna) Coral, like ‘Shell Shock’ from ‘Ilia Beauty’ (iliabeauty.com), looks amazing against fair skin, while medium and darker tones can pull off a really intense fuchsia, like ‘FusionBeauty Lip Fusion’ in ‘Blush’ (www.thebeautybox.com).
