Four weeks has passed since summer solstice, June 21. Looking in the mirror wishful for a tan complexion and body, I had to stop myself from sunning by the pool because plastic surgeon pal had done his job of explaining the positive relation between too much sun exposure and potential future skin cancer. What is a gal to do then??If there is a will, there is a way. I am using Neutrogena Built-A-Tan to give myself the faux tan, which the color deepens gradually. I just need to apply more applications to deepen the tan. My tan looks natural, not the orange color I fear.To achieve bronze glow, I am utilizing Guerlain Terracotta Light Sheer Bronzing Powder. The result is a soft tan glow but there darker colorings are available. I am a big fan of Guerlain powder and this bronzing powder has not failed me, given me sun-kissed bronze glow without the sun. This compact powder contains 5 shades, tan colors to add bronze, and peach and bronze shimmer to add soft glow. (retails for $48) I look like I have spent hours in the sun, like one of those beach bunnies! To finish up my look, I would dust Chanel Rose Blush to add a subtle hint of color to my cheeks. What is your savvy method to tan, bronze and glow for the summer??
