Just Say No To ORANGE!

Everyone looks better with a healthy, sun-kissed glow.  Not everyone gets to live in Cali where that is an actual possibility.  So my philosophy is “fake it ’til you make it”,  with some limitations of course.  Spray tans and tanning beds are a no-no in my book (we’ve all seen Tan-Mom)!  Over the years I’ve tried many different bronzers promising not to turn my skin orange!  That didn’t happen…until today that is.  I have finally found a bronzer that truly warms up my skin tone and makes me look sun-kissed healthy.  Drum roll please….

Soleil Tan De Chanel is that product ($50 u.s.).  Firstly it comes in a beautifully packaged compact with the bronzer on one side and a small brush on the other, which is great if you want to take it with you for touch ups later on.  Though I have to tell you I find it lasts all day and I’ve never felt the need to reapply.  (I do however recommend using a real bronzer brush when applying).

With this bronzer a little goes a long way, swirl your brush in it, tap off the excess powder and brush it on your face where the sun normally hits.  You’re complexion is instantly warmed up, with a little blush on the apple of your cheeks and some mascara (see A Real Eye Opener)  you are good to go.  Ok some lipstick or gloss wouldn’t hurt either but that’s just my opinion…

I happen to have medium toned skin, some call it olive, I just know that come this time of year I need a little help in the “trying not to look grey” department.  My go to shade is #62 Terre Epice!  I am loving this bronzer so much that the need to go on holiday this year is more about relaxation and less about getting that perfect tan!

So I hope you enjoy this winter warm-up product and if you’re not going away this holiday season, no worries…Fake it ’til you make it..it’s what I do… 😉
