How to Tantour - Wylde Grey

How to Tantour

Tantouring is here to simplify your routine. Think of tantouting as meal prepping for the week, but make it cosmetic; this routine avoids skin damage from the sun by using faux tanner, it can speed up a makeup routine and make it even easier to go without makeup since you’ll have an effortless contour.

How to tantour

Begin by applying self-tanner to the areas of your body that you would typically contour. The experts suggest using a contour brush or Beautyblender for application. You could even use a small eyeshadow blending brush to contour tinier parts of the face like the nose, lips and creases of the eyes.

By applying self-tanner to specific areas of the face, such as the hollows of the cheeks, the sides of the nose, the jawline and the temples, you can create the illusion of shadows and depth, which can make your features appear more sculpted and defined.  

Always start with a light hand and build up gradually, as you can always add more, but it’s not that easy to take it off once applied. It is also important to use self-tanners that are specifically formulated for use on the face when tantouring facial features.

The benefits of tantouring

“When it comes to tantouring, it’s all about personal preference and skill. If you’re a makeup enthusiast and love experimenting with new beauty techniques, tantouring could be a fun way to add some extra definition to your facial features. If you are someone who lives a busy, always on the go lifestyle, tantouring can be a great way to cut down on your beauty routine.

Additionally, tantouring is a great way to achieve a barely-there bronze that lasts a few days. Especially in the summertime when you might not want a full face of makeup and want to enhance your natural features.
