One of my main goals in life is to try to maintain the above color of skin, nicely tanned and a lovely shade of brown. Unfortunately I live in the great state of New Jersey and for about 9 months of the year I look like the bottom picture cute but very pale! 


So since I didn't inherit the lovely brown skin both my parents have, I have to fake it! Hence my Bronze Tale! 
And now that summer is on the horizon I want to be perfectly bronze, but unfortunately when I set out to tan in many cases I absolutely crash and burn! Like literally I burn and I usually have a very bad reaction to products with SPF in them so I try to avoid all things with SPF in them because it burns my skin, similarly to the sun. 


So in my world I have to "fake it til I make it"! I use everything from bronzers to  illuminators and even body glow bronzers to help me turn the perfect shade of bronze throughout the summer.  Here are a few of my favorite products. (Please excuse the Very Sexy palette in the top picture I use it by mistake thinking it was the Charlotte Ronson palette; then was too late to take the pic again.)
