Want Golden Skin? Skip the Sun!

Written by Ashley

Use these tools to shimmer, shine & glow – sans sun.


It’s never too early in the season to get your bronze on. Steering clear of gross skin-damaging sun that will age you faster, now, than ever before,  that faux-little golden shine will put a healthy, youthful pep in your step like nothing else will.

1 & 2: Before rockin’ this golden Ali Ro frock [shop], you’ll need a glow. DEX Body Glow Sunless Tanner spray is a continuous spray bottle that I personally swear by. One bottle lasts forever & a day, an even application means no need to rub in, and the aloe infused formula will ensure you’ll instantly look like a sunkissed goddess.

3: Now it’s on to making your face match your glowing personality (and newly glowing skin). LORAC’s new line of TANtalizing prods (avail on Ulta April 10 & in Sephora stores April 19) will give you the glow, dimension & sultry set up lips straight out of a vacay in Rio. This set, including two exclusive mineral-infused eyeshadow duos, a shimmery-baked bronzer, a full-sized 3D lipgloss with flecks of gold & a disco carry purse to hold it all, or to use clutch to compliment your glow.

4: Finally, a little highlight action will put the icing on your sun-kissed-skin cake. Use this concentrated champagne-pink hued eyeshadow from girlactik to press an eye-opening drop on to the inner-corner of the eyes & lightly on the browbone.  Use excess to fleck on to shoulders, collarbone & chest for light-catching radiance. girlactik beauty Star Shadow in Golda [$18 girlactik.com]
