Putting on a safe tan

putting+on+a+safe+tan_3356_800286188_0_0_7067029_300Knowing that tanning is bad for our health may not always stop us from doing it, but luckily, there are safer ways to give yourself a fresh, beachy glow.

Allure.com reports that researchers at Emory University recently found that online users were twice as likely to vote a woman attractive if she was depicted with a slightly darker skin tone.

However, you don't need to go to the beach or step into the tanning bed to get a golden glow. Instead, the right cosmetics can help you create a lovely bronze appearance without jeopardizing your complexion's condition.

You should always pick a foundation or tinted moisturizer that matches your natural skin tone, but blush or bronzer swept over your cheeks, temples and forehead can add some attractive color to your face.

For eyes, pick brown or bronze eyeshadow, which will bring out the warm tones in your skin. Using blinc Eyebrow Mousse can also subtly enhance your glow by lending color to sparse brows.

Finally, choose a nude or peach lip gloss. The natural tones will be the sun-kissed icing on your cake.
