I took a fantastic nap today on our lovely handmade hammock from Mexico because I wasn't feeling well. My goal was to kill off some of the germs I think I got while hanging some with friends with a cold. My 90 minutes of pleasure were suddenly interrupted when my father pulled up in his cruiser. Grrr. I stumbled off the hammock and dragged myself inside to shower.
I grunted for all of 5 minutes for having been woken when I remembered I had to shoot a super quick video for a huge network (more on that later)! That meant hair and makeup application during daylight hours and I was on a time crunch. I picked out my outfit, fitting for the background I had set up and scoured through my makeup collection to see what colors would go best. The camera always waters down everything (except for weight), but I decided to go with an all natural look.
And, because the natural look for me during summer involves a glistening tan which I've not been able to enjoy just yet (not even the hammock nap fancied my interest) I needed to appear as if I had bathed in 100 degree weather. I grabbed my newest loose powder by Clinique which happens to be a bronzer -- exactly what I needed! The new powder is perfect in that its for full face application and instead of just offering a great even look, you get a fascinating glow as if you'd been at the beach and applied a light layer of translucent polvo.
A gal like me likes to stay natural as much as possible, avoiding tanning salons at all costs and slathering myself with high levels of SPF's, but I do enjoy the look of a shiny caramel complexion during the stifling summer months. The beauty affects of the sun, if done properly can only be enhanced by fab prods like the Powder Bronzer. Its super balanced chemistry also provides a 3D contouring system which lets you shine from any angle! That's the kind of glowing I love to do, especially when I'm in front of the camera.
After we shot the demo, I entertained myself by taking some shots through my vanity mirror in hopes of giving you a closer look at how fabulous the evenness and color are!
Kinda crazy, cool, right!?!
Check out your Clinique counter for the right shade for you. I'm wearing No. 1.
How do you get your summer perfect bronze look?
