Summer Bronze Essentials

Summer Bronze Essentials

After experiencing Chicago winter and thus only wearing pants for the past 6 months, it is safe to say that I am about as bronze as an uncooked chicken breast. And while it is officially summer and I have been wearing shorts in hopes of gaining some color, sometimes, we need a little help from products. Here are some easy (and safe!) ways to bronze up your look for the summer:

Bronzer

Add a glow to your complexion by using the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer. Unlike contour, apply bronzer to the highest parts of your cheek as well as the sides of your forehead, where the sun would naturally hit you. Now that it's summer, look for bronzers that have shimmer in them as they add a natural glow. Don't forget to use SPF under your makeup!

Self-Tanner

If you are completely new to self-tanner, Jergen's Instant Sun is a easy-to-use product! Simply rub the self-tanner all over your legs, arms, wherever you need it, and make sure you wash your hands immediately after applications. The best part about this product is that it is buildable, so you don't have to worry about looking too dark.

Scent

There's nothing more summery than the smell of the beach, and this is exactly what Estee Lauder's Bronze Goddess fragrance evokes. Warm, fruity, yet creamy at the same time, this will be your go-to summer scent.
