Everybody knows the look of summer is beautiful golden skin, but we all want this glow without the harmful, ageing sun exposure right? And some of us, looking at my own lillywhite self here, just don’t want the upkeep of a fake tan.
So what does one do? We add a beautiful bronzer into our makeup routine! Now I know the new year has lots of other expenses and hey, I’m not here to tell you to spend a lot of money on these bad boys, I’m going to give you a bronzer for every budget.
