Everyone wants a nice amount of color, so how do we get it?
I was born with a skin-tone that falls somewhere between "fresh milk" and "blank paper." I've heard every "where are the Seven Dwarves?" and "Ah! You're blinding me!" joke in existence, replacing my joyful anticipation of summer with an ominous dread.
Self tanners can be your best friend during the summer months! Sure in the past self tanners have been notorious for their distinct smells and splotchiness, but the formulas have improved and continue to do so.
After years of lamenting my pasty state, I finally realized: I’m never going to be tan! My skin has always been and will always be pale. Baby, I was born this way.
Everyone is expected to be tan in the summer, yeah? And while you know all about the dangers of tanning, people still do it. That will never change. I love being outside, and there's nothing like a tan from natural sunlight. But like always, you have to use protection (see what I did there?).
It's still summer and for the past 6 weeks you've been working on that tan of yours. And, glass half full, you've still got a good 6 or 7 weeks left to bronze yourself. You know what is best paired with a tan? White, coral, turquoise and brown - only the best summer pairings since you put jicama and guacamole together.
Is it just me or is there another “revolutionary” new makeup product introduced every freaking day?! Just walking into Ulta or Sephora (or even Walgreens!) sends many chicas into fits of hysteria, reaching for the nearest brown bag to regulate their breathing. It’s all so overwhelming.
They say a leopard can't change its spots, but you, my friend, can change your makeup shade. Now that summer is coming and we will all be getting a little sun kissed, it's imperative that we make a few makeup tweaks to reflect our new skin tone!
For years, my friend Jess has had the perfect tan; always radiant, glowing, never orange, never streaky, never Simon Cowell looking (I mean really, the dude should just wear a sign that reads "Some people choose alcohol, but self tanner is my drug of choice").
While you may be looking forward to seeing your friends, getting back to your favorite professor’s lecture, and maybe even that cute guy you were flirting with before the break, I guarantee you’ve forgotten about the other people you'll be forced to deal with. The uber annoying ones who always pop up after our beloved break.
I'll admit in all shallowness, one thing excites me more than anything about the summer time: busting out short skirts! But there's one problem. While slipping on a slinky mini dress the other night, I looked down at my legs in horror. Walking around in bermudas all day had given me a beautiful golden tan...from the knee down.
How many times do you apply bronzer and end up looking like Lindsay Lohan? If this has happened even once, it's one time too many. The trick to bronzer is simple: less is more. In this quick video, I'll show you how to get a faux tan on your face that looks natural.
I’ve never paid much attention to the Tory Burch brand. Seeing every girl and her mother walking around in those flats with the instantly recognizable golden medallion was quite enough. However, I recently stumbled upon these gladiators, and I have to say that they’re one of the nicest pairs I’ve seen.
