Spring has sprung, and it’s time for a sun-kissed flush to match. This is the first bronzer I’ve ever had that’s neither orange nor brown (Bobbi Brown does make a blush entitled “Peony,” so don’t get confused).

Josie Maranargan Illuminizer: Sun Kissed Without The Worry

Let me start by saying, I am pale. When I don’t use my self tanner I am ghostly. I don’t tan in beds and haven’t had a spray tan in a while because the smell makes me sick, so when my birthday rolled around this year I needed something to make me look less… dead. … Continue reading Josie Maranargan Illuminizer: Sun Kissed Without The Worry

There’s frugal and then there’s FRUGAL and essence is frugal with everything from “f” to “l” in bold capital letters! I’m talking cheaper than Revlon, Rimmel London, L’Oreal, and pretty much every other drug store buy you can think of. How does that translate when it comes to quality?

Clarins Self Tanning Instant Gel: Snooki(s) need not apply

Some people look good pale; Bella Swan, Amanda Seyfried, Anne Hathaway, vampires, etc. Emma, however, does not. I try to pull off the “winter glow” with blushes and rosy lips, but in photos I end up looking sick with too much makeup on. I think it may be because of my yellow undertones, or the … Continue reading Clarins Self Tanning Instant Gel: Snooki(s) need not apply
