Forehead Tan

My forehead is way darker than the rest of my face. If I match my foundation to my forehead tan, my skin is too dark to match my body. But if I match to my natural skin tone (aka the part of my face that matches the rest of my body), my forehead turns an ugly gray. Not putting on foundation makes it look weird like my skin is cut into two different skin tones and I do have blemishes on my forehead I would like to put makeup on. But buying 2 different foundation shades would be annoying. I wear makeup pretty much daily but having two different foundations is time-consuming in my routine and can be very costly. I am not ready to try any chemical/damaging procedures, and I've tried pretty much every natural way of removing a tan. What do I do?


Re: Forehead Tan

@Tiyane I think you might be best off going with a lighter coverage BB cream, CC cream, or tinted moisturizer. Those tend to be more forgiving shade wise. My favorites are URBAN DECAY - Naked Skin One & Done Hybrid Foundation, LAURA MERCIER - Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20, and bareMinerals COMPLEXION RESCUE® Tinted Moisturizer with Hyaluronic Acid and Mineral SPF 30 Bamboo 5..... If you still find your forehead is noticeably darker than the rest of your face, try some bronzer on the points of your chin, jaw, and nose. It will help even out your color and make it look like you’ve gotten natural sun. BENEFIT COSMETICS - Hoola Matte Bronzer or Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer Chocolate Soleil are great for that.
