Unless you’ve been in a stuck in a state of social hibernation, you’ll have heard of the brand new beauty trend that claims to leave you sculpted, flawless and an all over glamorous, golden goddess. No, not contouring, we’re talking about 3D-tanning. And like most beauty trends nowadays, the Kardashian sisters are leading the way.
What is 3D tanning?
3D tanning is the art of using different shades of tan to create a more sculpted look. You can use tan to shape out a more defined silhouette, starting with a base coat of tan followed by a darker shade of tan and a highlighter to achieve a more defined, luminous look.
If 3D tanning is good enough for the Kardashians, it’s good enough for us -we’re sold! So grab some Cocoa Brown and let’s get our tan on!
Why 3D tan?
3D tanning has been described as the ultimate way to cheat your way to a sculpted and luminous look. A great tool to boost your body confidence, this tanning process adds definition and tone to your face and body while shading the areas we want to hide.
Joyce Bonelli, Kardashian makeup artist, has teamed up with Cocoa Brown’s Marissa Carter to create a 3-step 3D tanning technique for a Kardashian beauty secret that you can easily replicate at home. Follow these steps if you want a natural looking tan and a flattering silhouette.
How to 3D tan:
Step 1: The first step is to apply a full body coat of Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tanning Mousse using a mitt. When you reach your desired tan shade, rinse off the excess tan in the shower.
Now it’s time for the exciting part, the game-changer – the sculpting!
Step 2: Starting with your face, use a foundation brush to apply Cocoa Brown’s Bronzing Gel Shimmer where light naturally hits your face: the top of your forehead, the tip of your nose and the sides of your cheeks. Deepen the tan on your décolleté and also down either side of your arms and legs to create the impression of slimmed down limbs.
Step 3: Apply a shimmering coat of Cocoa Brown Golden Goddess Body Oil to your cheekbones, temples, collarbone and down the centre of your arms and legs. This will give your skin a gorgeous glow and a beautiful luminosity.
