No one likes to be pale during any season let alone the summertime when everyone seems to be a perfect bronze color, but I am always so nervous when using a “a tan in a can” because, from experience, you either come out striped or orange — neither of which are attractive. Fortunately, I discovered Bliss- A Tan for All Seasons ($36), a colorless self tanner. Yeah, you read that correctly: this bronzing spray has no color, which means no streaks, no orange tone to your skin, and most importantly, no orange stained hands! On top of the color being a negative with typical self-tanners, the smell is usually unbearable, but Bliss took care of that too. The product has a citrus smell that is just light enough that will make your skin feel awake and refreshed. Also, the antioxidant formula helps product your skin from environmental damages, like pollution and dirt. Most importantly, your tan comes on gradually. Unlike other self-tanners that give you color right away, this one will bring it on gradually so it appears more natural.

When I learned that the newly launched Karora Cosmetics collection with products focusing on a faux glow for your skin by way of self tanner, bronzing gel, and CC cream came from Dublin, Ireland, I was a bit surprised. While you don’t generally associate Ireland with a tan, it makes perfect sense that a country more known for drizzly nights than tropical beaches would become experts in faking a tan. Karora Cosmetics adds another dimension to their self tanning products by including botanical ingredients to help skin’s appearance even after your self tan has worn off. 

One of the highlights of their U.S. launch in my personal opinion is the full body CC Cream. Providing instant tanning results for a wide variety of shades with color correction technology, the cream dries to a matte finish which conceals uneven skin tone while adding color. Though it is labeled for “all skin tones”, it tends to work best on light to olive skin shades. The key botanical ingredients in the CC cream include green tea leaf extract, jojoba seed oil, argan oil, and acai berry, providing skin care benefits on top of an instant tan. Karora Cosmetics can currently be purchased in store at Henri Bendel and online through Organic Skincare U.S.

Rihanna has a lot of reasons to glow these days. The 25-year-old singer just launched her Rihanna for River Island clothing line and is days away from kicking off her Diamonds World Tour. But the real reason for her glow has a lot to do with her makeup artist, Mylah Morales. According to Mylah, she uses  Per-fekt Beauty products on Rihanna because of their multi-tasking abilities, crediting Per-fekt for “creating a healthy and youthful look,” something the star seems to have down pat. Mylah uses the one shade fits all Per-fekt Beauty Body Perfection Gel all over RiRi’s body to create an even skin tone that glows.
