Every year, we get an early start to sunshine after dwelling in the cold over wintertime!!!
Plushed rosey, our faded complexions turn quiet eager for Sunshine and Warmth!!
All women desire bronzed glowing skin, and it's quite lovely to have a deep rich tone all year long!

This Great Break helps us Relax and unwind so why not do it looking your best!!!
I personally like to keep a Full Body Glow,
But it can definitely get challenging.
Busy Schedules, Avoiding Tanning Beds & modest legs can really put a kramp on your style!!
My love for tanning and self bronzers, has resulted in some pretty great tips and recipes.
As far as skin tones go, I fall right in the middle, its between between creamy fair maiden & hot caramel latte for me.
I really enjoy my lighter and darker tones equally and each has it own regimen.
Check out my favorite hacks for flawless skin, no matter the time of year.
Remember Mica is one of the easiest ways to stay glowing.
My favorite way to reuse my old make-up is to infused it in oils and lotions for one of a kind treats.Hack #1
The remains of Highlighters, Eyeshadow, Contour and Blush pressed powder are to always be saved.
Everyone's skin varies but these color charts are commonly used for the following Tones!
For Fair: Nude colors, champagne & pale gold and light Peach Mica will gently glisten on lighter tones.
For Medium: Earthy warm colors, Peach, Rose, Gold and Brown glitter micas all compliment olive complexions.
For Deep: Cool and Warm deep browns, Bronze/Copper, Brick Red and Mocha will compliment Deep Tones as they sparkle with delight.
Feel free to mix and match to your skins needs and wants.
✨Liquid foundation and concealers can also be blended with oils & lotions is always great for airbrushed legs.
(My ultimate Go-To)
D.I.Y. tanning, all natural tinted moisturizer
Self tanners are Very important in building a base color and maintains tan longer too.
Most retailed self tanners contain an ingredient called dihydroxyacetone (DHA).
Derived from Sugar and Beets.
When applied, dihydroxyacetone reacts with dead cells in the skin's surface layer to temporarily darken the skin and simulate a tan.
It usually takes a few days to see results, intensified bronzed self tanners can provide some immediate color but if your willing to try a natural alternative, then here's your chance.
A lightweight lotion
Can be dispersed in oil too.
Although fun and easy, I don't have a measured recipe. I usually eye ball it according to base I'm using.
I prefer oil most of the time, just because I use it more than lotion.
Step 1, Always polish and buff canvas area, and shave first. This will allow top layer to last longer, rather then come off with old skin cells. And it guarantees smooth application.
