Fake, Don't Bake!
If you're like me and want to fake your way to a more sun-kissed look, bronzer is a great option. I recently received a sample of Bare Minimum Pressed Powder Bronzer from Sonia Kashuk (available for about $10 at Target) and got to work.
The Sonia Kashuk bronzer has a pretty cool design. The top is the bronzer--two shades designed to work together to create a natural glow, and underneath is a mirror and brush. I applied the bronzer to all the places that are typically hit by the sun: my forehead, bridge of my nose, and cheekbones. The result? A subtle, lovely glow. This bronzer is formulated to fight shine and zit causing sebum, so it's perfect for the summer. Well worth the $10 price tag.
If you're looking for some great tips on how to apply bronzer, I highly recommend this article from the LA Times. It's a step-by-step approach to using bronzer to achieve natural, subtle results. No Oompa Loompas allowed!
