I Just Want to be Tan!

Special events usually require getting fancy and wearing a dress-it also means there's going to be a lot of pictures so those memories can last forever! With that being said...I like my skin to be a bit more golden when I have parties to attend.  

Here's what I did to enhance my skin's tone to look like I spent the week in the Bahamas... 


1. Two days before my event, I used Bare Minerals Faux Tan Body Sunless Tanner 
2. The night before the event, I used Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Glow Pads 
3. The day of the event, I mixed Nars Laguna Body Illuminator ( Or face) with my body lotion 

 ...ALWAYS hydrate the skin with a moisturizer to ensure the skin looks dewy and healthy!

Hair by Danielle Derksen 
My hair has visited every trend...and while highlights around my face warm up my skin the Hubby prefers my hair rich and dark (which makes me feel more pale). 
Danielle did a subtle balayage technique on my head this week-and I've never felt sexier! 

It's timeless. I love it. He loves it. 

BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss-Game Changer

There are a few colors that may remind you of tropical paradise like teals, yellows, and corals. Those colors will always compliment the skin and give the illusion of a deeper tan! 

1. Great Nail colors to enhance the skin tone include white, coral, and bronze, and gold/yellow.
2. Lips and cheeks are another way to amp up your tan... I would use anything with a warm undertone! Think yellow/orange or red/orange undertones as well as warm browns (not cool browns that look more mauve). 

False Lashes by Ardell 
 When I use false lashes I always grab black! I never thought to change it up with my falsies and use brown! It's softer and more day time appropriate (great for a girlfriend's bridal or baby shower).

It's also a great way to warm up my skin


it pulled out a little bit of green in my hazel eyes!
