Bronzer and Self-Tan Secrets

Wearing 100+ sunscreen everyday is so fantastic!  I have totally converted for life, I never want a chemical peel ever again!  Sarah calls my condition “Tanorexia,” my wanting to be tan and feeling slightly depressed when I’m not.  Basically, I have changed my worship over from the sun to these fab products…

Estee Lauder’s Bronze Goddess for $30.  I use this product year round, applying a little more in the summer months for an extra glow.

My good friend introduced me to this fantastic self-tanner.  They come as individual towelettes and has been the only tanner that’s left me streak and orange free.  The color usually lasts about a week, and doesn’t rub off onto your clothes!  Look out for them at department stores.  I found them on clearance at Dillards and stocked up.

Lastly, for an extra sparkle on date night I love a blush with a shine like this shimmer brick from Bobbi Brown.  I have seen lots of imitations of this at grocery stores that I have tried and have loved the results.  Look out for seasonal shimmers at the grocery store now, like Sonia Kashuk’s line at Target.

These are my best secrets for a faux tan thus far, do you have any to share?

    Love it! :) I wish I could be brave and stop being in the sun. However, I do not have naturally gorgeous olive skin like my dear friend. I am excited to try the Bobbi Brown or similar product. Thanks Em.
