First we had Contouring, then Tontouring & now……3D Tanning is the latest beauty craze to sweep the globe!!
The 3D tanning technique, which is a collaboration between Cocoa Brown founder Marissa Carter & Kardashian beauty guru Joyce Bonelli not only gives you a beautiful natural looking tan but also ensures that your body is looking sensational with defined legs, abs & arms!!
Joyce and Marissa have created a simple three-step 3D tanning technique that doesn’t require your own professional makeup artist. ‘Anyone can follow these three simple steps to achieve a tan that looks natural, will increase your body confidence and give your skin a luminous glow,’ they say.
The first step is to apply a one hour tanning mousse to the entire body using a mitt. Joyce recommends waiting one hour for a light glow, two hours for a more bronzed look and three hours for a deep tan before rinsing the tan off in the shower.
The next step is to use a bronzing gel to sculpt the face and body and create a more natural looking tan. Begin on the face and using a foundation brush, apply the gel where the sun would naturally hit the face, which is the top of the forehead, tip of the nose, and the sides of cheeks. ‘This will give the face a very natural, sun-kissed look,’ said Joyce.
She suggests deepening the tan on the décolleté and down either side of the arms and legs to create an optical illusion, slimming the silhouette.
The third and final step is to use a shimmering dry body oil on areas like cheekbones and temples, collarbone and down the middle of arms and legs to give skin luminosity and glow.
