To Bronze or Not to Bronze? That is the question. Never mind Jersey shore, I live on Long Island (Dats pranownced Lawgh Eyelind) where clouds of Bronzer fill every cosmetic counter. And now that the weather is colder and people are indoors the artificial tan becomes a safer alternative (i.e. tanning beds, which do much more harm than good).
There are so many ways to bronze from powders to lotions and sprays. It all depends on your choice of application and how much you want to spend (Christian Dior and Guerlane are a small fortune). Speaking of Guerlane, they invented bronzing powder and theirs are still some of the finest!! I have to say my personal favorites are Nars (laguna) and Sephora’s own giant compact. But I also have amazing bronzers right at Frasada, my two favorites being Santa-Fe and Rio De Janiero. Colors at a great price ($18.00), Chanel, Dior etc start at $30.00 and go up from there.
Do you want tan in a can? I find them messy but I have Angela at Frasada, my Spray Goddess! Why do it yourself when it comes out better by a pro?
Don’t think for one minute women are the only ones who bronze, oh no, there are plenty of men who want the “Summer Glow”.
And then there’s me, the last hold out. Maybe because in the real world without sunblock I am a lobster, or maybe it’s because in high school I tried “ QT” and turned bright orange like an Umpah Lumpah. My friends never let me live it down!
But if you are going to spray yourself, San Tropez makes a great bronzer spray and lotion, try them out.
I hope you all have a great holiday season and remember, why look good when you can look great!
