I’ve still been using the St. Tropez Bronzing Mousseand still love it. Of course it has a few issues such as, not tanning my face as much as I
wish and fading quickly on my hands and feet. But these issues haven’t stopped me from using it. I’ve had to switch up products that I use when I have a tan. So let’s see what I use…
NARS Laguna bronzer
I’ve had the Orgasm/Laguna duo for a few years and go in and out of using it. The bronzer has gotten more love than the blush, especially lately. A lot of people love the Laguna bronzer, but I’ve somewhat gotten tired of it. This is mainly because of the shimmer in it, which led me to buy the Benefit bronzer. I usually apply this with my Sigma F50 Duo Fibre brush.
Benefit Hoola bronzer
At Ulta I had a hard time deciding between this bronzer and the Tarte one, but decided to get Hoola because it is completely matte. It’s also definitely lighter than Laguna, which will work with my skin tone even when I’m not tan. I also bought a Real Techniques kabuki brush to use with this bronzer and so far I’ve been really enjoying it.
Aero Minerale makeup mist in Nude
This is another gift that my boyfriend’s mom picked up from Ulta. I’ve never used an aerosol spray/can of makeup/foundation before, so I was very interested. The color is a bit too dark for my natural skin color, but works perfectly when I have a tan. I normally mix this with my Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer and sometimes even with a little
bit of the St. Tropez Bronzing Mousse. I do not recommend spraying this foundation directly onto you face, what I do is spray some on the back of my hand and then apply with my beauty blender.
L’OREAL Magic Skin Beautifier in Light
You can see my post on this here, but I can only use this BB cream with a tan. There is a fair color, that will work with my natural skin tone, so you have to be careful when picking out a shade with this BB cream. I like that it does four things (primes, perfects, hydrates and corrects) and has good coverage.
bareMinerals mineral veil
My mom gave me this product after finding herself not using it. I was in need of a more translucent setting powder and this does the trick. I also love the way it makes my skin feel. The only bad thing is that it gives a powder-look to the skin, so I use it sparingly.
Also I recently hit pan on my Benefit Hervana blush because I use it everyday and wanted to share my excitement!!
Do you use different products when you have a tan?
