Ask The Beauty Department

Q: IS IT COOL TO LOOK TAN IN WINTER, EVEN IF ALL YOUR FRIENDS KNOW YOU HAVEN'T STEPPED FOOT IN THE CARIBBEAN IN MONTHS? — Jennifer Gourley
A: As Hollywood fuels "seasonless dressing," skimpy frocks and strappy sandals year-round -- it's natural that sun-kissed skin, real or unreal, would be part of the package. Not a red-carpet regular? Go bronze, but not too bronze. For a toned-down tint, MC's assistant beauty editor, Phoebe Malles, swears by mixing a squirt each of Almay Sunless Tanning Gel for Face and Kinerase Lotion, right.
