How to NOT Look Like a Vampire This Summer

I don't know about y'all, but I have super sensitive and sun-burn prone skin... and on top of that I'm already pretty pale, so while occasionally I'll be able to achieve some kind of a tan in the Summer usually it's not that drastic. This tutorial is going to show you how to create a bit of "sunkissed" color on your face so that you won't have to worry about being Edward Cullen pale in the Summer (or even all year round).

1. You want to start off having already applied concealer and foundation, then add two small dabs of a self tanner below your cheekbones. I use Hard Candy's Glow all the way liquid bronzer.

2. After the bronzer is blended in smoothly, take a setting powder and buff that into your skin.

3. Then take a bronzing powder (Hoola Bronzer by Benefit is my favorite) and apply that with an angled brush to the apples of your cheeks

4. Next add some brightness to your cheeks by using a bright pink blush on the apples of your cheeks. I like to use Pink Swoon by MAC (a perfect dupe for Pink Swoon is Pink Passion by E.L.F.).

5. And finally, this next step is just a fun way to make your eyes pop and give you more of a "bronze-y" glow. Take a gold or orange-y gold liner (the one I'm using is Gilded by Benefit, and I'm pretty sure it was discontinued but there are plenty of great gold liners out there) and apply it to your waterline.

And now you have gone from being super pale:

To having a little bit of a bronze-y glow in a matter on minutes:

Hope you liked this tutorial, it is super easy and take only about 3-5 minutes to do :)
