Ok...so summer's not here yet, but a girl can dream! One of the easiest ways to turn the winter blues around? Incorporate a hint of nautical into your wardrobe and life's a beach! Click below to see our 3 faves!
Let me start off by pointing out that you will find nary a self-tanner nor a bronzer here! While I'm all about an all-over summer glow myself, this post is all about incorporating season-festive bronze shades into other aspects of your makeup -- eyes, lips, nails -- and proving you can rock the color with or without a tan. I mean, just look at Charlize Theron! Bronze shades, whether your skin is rich and dark, creamy porcelain, or somewhere in between, have a way of instantly summer-izing your look and warming up your features, whether in the form of a smooth coppery shadow like NARS' Soft Touch Pencil or a sparkly bronze lip gloss like this one from Too Faced. Who needs a spray tan to look sun-kissed when you have all these gorgeous bronze shades to highlight your best features one at a time? Yes, one at a time -- too much bronze will have you looking less like a summer goddess and more like the next cast member of "Jersey Shore."
