Our Top 4th of July Beauty Tips

Posted on July 1st, 2016

There’s nothing we really love more than a delish Fourth of July barbecue, playing outdoors and celebrating the red, white and blue with our best friends and family. Whether you’re having a beachy SoCal staycation or traveling for the Fourth of July, our beauty tips will ensure you look your best while having a star-spangled good time.

Fourth of July Beauty Basics for Bronze Beauties
If you’re like us, you’ll be spending most of your Fourth of July playing under the sun, so prep for the big day by showing your skin some love with skin sensing sunbeds and California Tan’s new SPF line.

Having a base tan can help prevent overexposure while outdoors. In preparation for your beachside getaway, hop into a sunbed geared toward preventing overexposure by building your natural hue with skin-sensing technology. Once you’re outside, don’t forget to pack California Tan SPF Collection, featuring SPF 15 and SPF 30 Continuous Spray and SPF 45 Face Mousse, in your beach bag. It’s the perfect way to take care of your skin away from the salon.

If You Can’t Tone It, Tan It!
Fact: A spray tan will make you look instantly slimmer and toned. You’re probably familiar with face contouring, a DIY slimming and bronzing makeup trick that’s great for everyday! At iTAN we like to take it one step further with Airbrush that allows for contouring from head to toe.

Before the Fourth of July, ask your expertly trained iTAN consultant for contouring during your Airbrush session. Your consultant can visually sculpt your body with a shade that’s slightly darker than your allover hue.

4th of July Hair
The Fourth of July is usually a hot day on the beach, but you can still be tressed to impress! We’re in love with Blo Blow Dry Bar’s summer menu featuring “‘undone in the sun’ with a ‘beach, please’ attitude” motif and their full braid menu for DIY inspiration.

For a one-step DIY, you can also use Bumble & Bumble’s Surf Spray because anyone who has played in a SoCal beach knows that a salty, sexy, sun-dried hair is a go-to summer essential.

4th of July Beauty
When it comes to Fourth of July makeup, red, white (or bronze) and blue is key! After scouring YouTube for makeup tutorials, this bronzed eyeshadow with electric blue eyeliner was our number one pick for Fourth of July eyes. If you skip the eyeshadow, you can never go wrong with a classic red lip. Picking the undertone for your red lip is easy: for a light spray tan use a bluish undertone; for a medium spray tan try an orange red; and for a dark spray tan shoot for a reddish pink. And finally, you can complete your look with simple white nails.

Happy Fourth of July, everyone! Show us your look using #iTANfan.
