The self-tan contouring hack is coming in hot on our TikTok FYP, and we think it's about time we shared with y'all our fake tan tips on how to achieve this super easy, ultra-bronzey hack!

With our Canadian and US bronzers in the peak of summer rn, this fake tanning contour hack will be the secret to giving you that 'just got back from vacay, minus the ew v-rays' bronze.

Here at LB, we're all about doing things that make you feel good and if adding a little lift to your cheeks and jawline does that, then let's make sure we get it right! This beauty hack is also perfect for when you want to ditch your makeup...Which is majority of the time!

So here's what you'll need: 

Tools: 

  1. Total Eclipse Tanning Mousse
  2. Beauty sponge or makeup brush

Now lets get down to business: 

Step 1 - Get the face prepped 💦

In the shower you should get the skin prepared by gently cleansing and exfoliating, then patting dry. If you have dry skin or any pigmentation, we'd even recommend moisturising your face and décolletage so the tan doesn't settle into any of those areas. 

Step 2 - Pump up the jam 🎵

Pump some TE Tanning Mousse into the bottle cap and lightly dab your beauty sponge or makeup brush in the mousse.

Step 3 -Time to get bronzing 💫

With your chosen beauty tool, you'll need to start carving out any areas on your face that you'd like snatched! This is personal preference and depends on your face shape, but some areas that you can contour can be the hollow of your cheeks, the sides of your nose, your jawline or your forehead/hairline. Contouring is different for everyone so you can select some or all of these areas to contour to find your perfect level of bronze!

Step 4 - Let her GLOW ✨

We recommend leaving your contour to develop on the skin for 1-3 hours (the longer you leave the tan on, the deeper your results will be) and gently rinse off your tan with just water and pat dry the skin. 

✨and voila...The perfect fake tan contour✨
