Using a self-tanner is a great and easy way to achieve an overall slimmer look year-round, whether you’re slipping into a bikini for a day at the beach or into a sleek evening gown for a fall wedding. A good self-tan can help to mask cellulite and promote a more defined and contoured physique.
For perfectly primed skin, exfoliate your entire body the day before tanning to remove dirt and dead skin cells. To get the best fake tan for body contouring, go with a light or medium shade.
Makeup Artist to the Kardashian’s, Joyce Bonelli has always been a huge fan of Cocoa Brown by Marissa Carter’s self-tanning range, using it to get the girls bronzed and beautiful for every event!
Now, as the newly appointed brand ambassador for the range, Bonelli has taken her tanning practice to the next level by using a special 3D Tanning technique created especially by Cocoa Brown’s founder, Marissa Carter.
This special “tantouring” technique uses Cocoa Brown by Marissa Carter products to sculpt the body as well as add tone and a flawless definition to facial features, which lasts for days!
Bonelli assures this technique can be mastered in just three simple steps achieving a sculpted, confidence-boosting glow!
STEP ONE: Apply Cocoa Brown by Marissa Carter 1 Hour Tan Mousse to the entire body using a mitt. Bonelli 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. STEP TWO: Use a combination of Cocoa Brown by Marissa Carter 1 Hour Tan Mousse and 1 Hour Tan Mousse DARK 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 . Bonelli suggests deepening the tan on the décolletage and down eithe r side of the arms and legs to create an optical illusion, slimming the silhouette. STEP THREE: Use Cocoa Brown By Marissa Carter Golden Goddess Shimmering Dry Body on areas like cheekbones, temples, collarbone and down the middle of arms and legs to give skin luminosity and glow.
