The 5 New Rules of Beauty
By Didi Gluck
Rule #5: Never Leave Home sans a (Fake) Tan
A gorgeous glow ‑- on your face and body ‑- is no longer just a summer thing. It's an aesthetic we've come to covet year-round, and with good reason: A touch of color makes you look and feel instantly sexy and lets you get away with wearing less makeup. (Need proof? See Jessica Simpson, Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez.) In response to the skin-tone warming trend, companies like CoverGirl have begun to include bronzers in their permanent lines instead of offering them only seasonally (try CoverGirl Tanfastic and Cheekers Bronzers). It's also finally possible to get a salonlike spray tan at home (try Nuress's Home Tanning Salon, $139.99; it could pass for the real deal). For an allover glow like this model's, smooth on Delux Beauty Liquid Bronze for face/body.
