Body Makeup - Yes or No!

Body Makeup - Yes or No?

Body makeup. It’s existed for decades, but it seems to have had a beauty industry resurgence of late. Body makeup works as an airbrush of sorts for the skin, evening out the skin tone, adding a wash of colour and even contouring your limbs for a more toned look! Like it or not, it body makeup appears to be having a “moment.” See where we sit on this polarising trend below.

Is Body Makeup a winter saviour?

For a lot of people, body makeup is the ultimate winter shortcut. You can apply it before heading out to add warmth to winter skin, plus you can use it to add definition to your body by contouring- however subtle or obvious you choose to take it! Body makeup can create the illusion of wearing stockings, evening out the colour of arms and legs that haven’t seen the sun in months due to the chill of winter.

Body Makeup- is it a gimmick?

For those who sit firmly in the “no” camp, body makeup seems like a bit of a gimmick. It takes time and effort to apply it properly, it can feel cakey on your skin (imagine the feeling of foundation from head to toe) and many brands have a tendency to rub off onto your clothing if you sweat- not a good look!

Where do we sit?

There’s very little that body makeup can do that a great self tan can’t do. If you’re in a rush, we’d suggest opting for something like our Wash Off Bronzing Mousse as it delivers instant colour that can be washed off just like body makeup but it won’t transfer onto your clothing, run when you sweat or leave any stains! The other perk is that our tanning formulas are packed with skincare benefits, so you’ll be hydrating and nourishing your skin while you add that bit of colour. If you wanted to build up the glow, we’d pick our Tinted Tan Extender rather than body makeup for the same reason- extra hydration and zero colour transfer!
