The age-old beauty question: how to get a sun-kissed look without baking under harmful rays.
Brush on a dusting of Bobbi Brown’s Bronzing Powder for that enviable "was-picnicing-at-the-park-all-day" glow, without actually having to emerge from the shady shelter of your wide-brimmed hat. Coming in light, medium and dark tan, you’ll be able to find one that fits your exact skin tone.
Oh this glow? It's faux. —Kait Kucy

Ever since a real-life sun-kissed glow turned into the kiss of death, we’ve had to find other ways to achieve that healthy bronze.
Stila’s new One Step Bronze with its “triple-swirled helix serum” not only looks cool, but also does quadruple duty as a bronzer, primer, illuminator and moisturizer. Oil-free, the light bronzer goes on smoothly improving skin tone and leaving just a hint of a shimmer.
And best of all, the mineral complex targets skin imperfections such as environmental stressors, acne and, coincidentally, sun damage. —MG
