There is no better time than summer to try out a nude makeup look. After all, it’s been a runway trend for years, and even lovers of the extreme like designers Versace and Alexander McQueen send models down the aisle with just a smudge of bare color.

Fake tans have come a long way since the 1970s creams that left skin streaked, orange and unhealthy looking – like you overdosed on Vitamin A or ate a bowl of carrots. Does anyone remember QT? As if the funky smell wasn’t bad enough, it was next to impossible to get the greasy lotion on without lines, streaks, and nasty stripes.
There are so many great options in terms of products, shades, applications, that women can get a gorgeous bronzed look with ease. For diehard fake tan fans, spas and salons offer the option of mist-on tanning or spray tans. It is the lazy girl’s way to get a gorgeous, streak-free tan. Technicians will assist you in a booth that sprays a very fine mist of s
