How to match your foundation to your tan, without spending a fortune!

What do you do when you have fake tanned to perfection, gone to apply your makeup and find that your foundation is a good shade lighter than the rest of your body?

You head to The Body Shop of course, because they have created an absolute gamechanger.

If you haven’t come across their Shade Adjusting Drops, I highly recommend checking them out. Available in a light and dark, these can be added to your foundation to alter its shade.

I picked up the darkening drops, as I've been getting slightly conscious that my my face is looking a touch ghostly when the rest of me is tanned. The only fake tan that I find really works on my face and creates any kind of difference is the Madame La La facial bronzing serum. However, once I then put on my makeup, the shade is matched to my original skin tone and I'm back to square one. 

I mixed one little squeeze of the darkening drops with a bit of my foundation and it completely changed the tone. You really don't need to use a lot of this to get good results - which means it's going to last you ages.

The best thing is that this clocks in at just £10 which, when you consider how much it would cost to buy a new foundation of varying shades each time you get a tan of a different gradient, in my eyes is a bargain. Now, you can just stick to your favourite one and make it change for you. 

The drops could also be used to contour your face and while I haven't tried this yet, I imagine you could create a much more natural look as you can have much more control about the shade than you would in a pre-made palette.

In short though, I'm certainly a fan. So long excessive use of bronzer to cover poorly matched foundation, I will definitely be recommending this to everyone I know!
