Tanning and makeup

Recommended Posts

I've always wanted to try sunbeds or self tanning as i'm really pale.Mostly sunbeds as i have excema and i don't want the tanning product to stick to my dry patches.So ow do you match your foundation to the tan? If someone could explain in good detail i would appreciate it.

I would have to say avoid the beds as well if you have eczema! Other than further irritating your skin, you'll look blotchy because you'll be tan everywhere EXCEPT where the patches of eczema are.

I thought it would be the opposite! what if i tan when my eczema hasn't flared up?

I still couldn't say tanning beds would be a good idea, but I would say if it's not currently aggravated and you have a solid way of treating and soothing it, the dryness would be less noticeable!

My daughters both have really bad eczema and whenever we go on vacation, they are so blotchy!  Anywhere their eczema has been in the last year is white and the rest of their skin tans.  It's the strangest thing.  So yeah, I plan on advising them to just wear sunscreen and embrace the pale because it seems like it would be hard to make a tan work with that skin.  I have rosacea and also have to avoid the sun, so we will all be pale together. 

 

Sounds like you really want to try out the tan look though, so maybe start with a gradual tanner like the St. Tropez or NKDSKN ones - these are more like a lotion and give you a decent tan after a few hours that lasts a day or two, but can be built up over time.  I think that would be a better place to start if you are worried about it clinging to your dry patches because if it looks crazy, it will wash off a lot faster. 

 

As far as matching your foundation to your tanned skin, have you considered something like the cover FX custom drops?  Get it in a few shades darker than your normal complexion and you can mix it with your facial moisturizer, sunscreen, primer or whatever.  This seems like it would be the most customizable option to me, you could darken or lighten up your mixture as needed to match the rest of your body. 

 

Another option is the Clarins golden glow booster, which you would put in your normal foundation to make it looks more tan and glowy.  I have never tried these personally but one of the youtubers I like (Alison Anderson) raves about it.

Hi.

 

I want to try it mostly because i've got a wedding coming up in July.It's funny you say that,i picked up the St tropez in shower gradual tanner not that long ago =p im thinking of using that on my body,seeing how dark iam a week before the wedding and then picking up a sample of my foundation what i use but a shade darker so i can mix the two. surely matching your fake tan is the same as tanning on holiday? i shall check this clarins golden glow booster out =) thankyou.

Last year I bought a tube of Stila Stay All Day® 10-In-One HD Bronzing Beauty Balm With Broad Spectrum SPF 30. During the summer months, I can add a dollop of the product to either a BB cream or foundation to match my skin tone. It works quite well!

    • This also happens to me! You may be histamine intolerant... Alcohol, kombucha, avocados, spinach, very aged cheeses... basically anything fermented lol. Try to avoid them and pop a histaEze pill. xx 
    • Tinder's basically the best option out there other than social media which is usually iffy, and Lex is another good one, that's if you're gay at all.
    • I used Tinder some time ago, but I don't really like it these days. There are so many bad and fake profiles... I like using some other dating services. I am sure that you will find something interesting and really working for you, good luck with it
    • I'm having some backsliding, but still trying! I'm really seeing progress using my full size cleanser, toner and moisturizer. I decided to change my routine. I have been experiencing for a while now some strange kind of boredom. When I'm not working, I really don't have fun any more. I don't get chores done either. I'll just get up, and the time just passes, and my room will be messy with a pile of laundry, and I don't get it done, and it makes me feel bad. I can't focus on reading a book or watching a show or movie. I always feel my weekend is a waste. I'm not having fun when I'm lazy like this either; it feels awful.  I decided to change my routine and fight this state! I told HR I wanted to work on Saturday every week and have Thursday off every week, which makes both my work weeks and time off shorter periods. I'm hoping it will be easier to make the most of time off when it is one day instead of an entire weekend. And I might feel less tired when the work week is broken up. I also made a list of all I hope to do in my days off. I want to have my laundry done, cleaning done, write in journal, post on Makeup Talk [I do enjoy writing], watch a show or movie and read a book, and best of all use a face mask on the two days off!  I'm not using all my face masks at all. I got a flyer from Yves Rocher with some awesome new face masks and scrubs. I really want one, but not until I've used up all the masks I have now! The Thursday and Sunday off will be my special beauty days to use up products with extra relaxing beauty routines.  Last night I went out with a friend of mine and my brother to Family Dollar. While she was shopping, I looked in the beauty section. I enjoyed it. I saw some things I wanted, but did not get, because I don't need them. I saw: Aromatherapy diffuser set with a little cherub. Pretty makeup brushes. I already have a ton. No reason to wear makeup because I always go out with a face mask. I should make an effort to use eye makeup though. I need to care for myself better and put effort into myself.  Skin care set with cleanser, toner, and cream in one box, only five dollars. I think the cleanser had shea butter. I wanted to try it, but have tons of skin care going back to 2017 I need to get through!  After we took our friend to eat, we came out and had a nail in our tire and a flat. The roadside assistance man was really nice though. I got a Car Care credit card and an appointment to get it fixed today. I am backsliding with my debt snowball, but I'm not going to let it stop me. I'm just going to keep going and start over with whatever debt is smallest, being diligent with No Buy/Project Use It Up.  I have been more productive this morning, started laundry and cleaning and wrote in my journal. The more I try the better it will get! Then maybe I won't order takeout so much. I'm kind of looking forward to going to the auto shop, because it will be something to accomplish, and then I'll go to lunch with my brother (less expensive than getting Door Dash).  The first mask I will be using up is my smallest sample, Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment. I have many mini masks from Ipsy, etc. and I believe two full size masks and two full size scrubs, and a box of sheet masks.   
    • I guess you should exercise and eat healthy for it!
