Be a Bronzed Babe!
Finally the sun has come out over the UK. And while we all love those ray's, its a well know fact that laying out in the sun and attempting to turn into a weathered piece of Italian leather is not a good idea.
Wanna get a little bronze-a-licious? Well read on beauties, cos whatever your skin tone there's a bronzing hue out there for you!
Boots No7 have the best range for turning you into a bronzed Aphrodite if you have pale/ light skin tones (you resemble Aggy Dean/ Sienna Miller's colouring). Slap on some No7 Naturally Sunkissed Gradual Body Tan. (200ml £9.25) It can be used like your usual body lotion and deeply smooths and moisturises skin, whilst its gentle self-tanning ingredient leaves behind a hint of beautiful colour that builds day by day into a natural looking glow.
Girls who already have a golden glow (think Eva's Mendes and Longoria)only need a little warming up, so go for something a little lighter that doesn't build over time. L'Oreal Sublime Bronze (£9.99) is just the ticket. Its got a great light texture and the effects only last for a couple of days.
And for those of you out there who like me have a beautiful brown hue all year round(Beyonce/ Naomi Campbell types) then you only want something that's gonna tip the scales and give you a little extra oomph. Guerlain Terracotta Spray Bronzing Powder mist (£33) is brilliant. It gives a nice lift without leaving a heavy colour behind.
No7 range is available from all Boots stores, L'Oreal is avaiable from all good beauty retailers and Guerlain is stocked in most larger department stores (Debenhams, Selfridges and House of Fraser)
