How to: Accentuate the Décolleté

How to: Accentuate the Décolleté

It's time to focus on your décolleté. A sensual, youthful and extremely feminine. Sadly it's an area that is often forgotten about or taken for granted.  

Step One: Prepare

Like anything preparation is key. If you already have already applied The Base Instant Tan Mousse then continue with the below steps, otherwise apply as normal.

If you already have a tan then it's time to exfoliate. The area of skin around your neck and shoulders is very delicate and should be treated as an extension of your face. Use a very mild exfoliator to smooth out the skin and create that natural glow. 

Step Two: Moisturise 

It's time to get that all over glow and the best way to do so is by nourishing your skin with a lather of The Base Body Glow Oil, this will smooth your skin as well as giving it a hint of shine without being glossy. 

Step Three: Highlight 

Using The Base Skin Illuminator Shimmer highlight along your collar bone out as far as the ends of your shoulders. It's also nice to apply to front of the neck down the throat. If you would like to take this highlighting affect even further then use a large loose brush to apply a highlighting powder, we love Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow

Tip: Apply your perfume by spritzing directly in front of you then walk through the scent. This will ensure you don't end up with any marks or discolourations on your skin, it's a nice ritual to follow when tanning.
