It's hard to move your eye from the faux pas to the glamour.
If the menu is Kentucky Fried Chicken leave the tan, if your dinner is little more posh then try these products:
CARGO Water Resistant Bronzer, Medium 0.46 oz (13 g) $28.00 USD at Beauty.com I tested this bronzer AGES ago... in the water. You get to see me in a bikini (I apologize now) and #stuffZoiesays at 2.
Prior to your application of bronzer, gently exfoliate your skin to remove dead skin cells for a smoother more even application. If you are a fan of the powder version - thoroughly pat your skin dry before applying as moist skin will cause the powder to look streaky; do the opposite for creams - moist skin blends creams better.
You can choose to apply bronzers in a thin layer for slight blend or build them up for a stronger tanned glow... without lines.
