Makeup artist Pati Dubroff suggests mixing either a tinted moisturizer (like NARS; $42 at sephora.com) or creme bronzer (like Chanel; $48 at chanel.com) in with your regular foundation to adjust the coloring. “Usually I maintain the original shade for the center of the face to keep a brightness,” said Dubroff who works with Gwyneth Paltrow and Drew Barrymore. “Then, I’ll either mix a few drops of tint into the liquid or just use it for sides of the face.”

If your skin has an actual burn to the point of being red, “Make sure sunburned skin is well hydrated and use aloe gel to heal.” And next time smooth on an SPF 30 or higher before sunning it up!
