This Summer I got the most tanned that I have been in years, spending days at a time lounging by the pool or out and about getting exercise in the sun. 

Of course I would always wear sunscreen but that gradual building of a tan all throughout Summer has left me quite bronzed and I am looking to extend it for as long as I can.

Now that we are coming into Autumn there are a couple of handy tricks with makeup that we can use to enhance and extend our Summer tan into the new season. It only takes 2 products so let's take a look into them...

Urban Decay Naked Bronzing Beauty Balm
This is an optical blurring product with a multitasking formula. It hydrates the skin instantly and primes so that makeup glides over the top. It perfects the skin, evening out skin tone, minimizing pores, lines, wrinkles and redness. It treats the skin for firmness, elasticity and anti-aging benefits.It also has SPF 20 to keep your skin protected from the sun while the bronzing particles leave you with a healthy warm glow. It's the best of skincare, a primer, a bronzer and a sunscreen so will definitely come in handy when wanting to extend your Summer tan.  This product retails for $55 and is available from Mecca here.

Nude by Nature Bronzer
Complete with their brand new brushes that have just hit the shelves, this smooth and creamy bronzer is perfect for warming up your complexion. This is surprisingly a very luxurious product with beautiful packaging and even a little dust bag to keep the bronzer in. It was created with the aim of capturing the appearance of warmth and sun-kissed skin with a semi-matte finish. I am extremely picky when it comes to bronzers so am happy to announce that this one has made it to my everyday makeup bag alongside my all time favourite Chanel Soleil De Tan. This product retails for $39.95 and is available here.

So that is a wrap on my two products perfect for extending your Summer tan into Autumn. I personally always love having a bit of colour because I am so light featured that a bit of a tan really goes a long way.
