    How do you get a summer glow? MAC Strobe Cream and pretty pink blush:)

  18. Avatar of Claire-Louise Claire

    How often do you wear bronzer? Every now and then, when I’m going for something very light and glowy. I never use powder bronzers bar those that are matte, and they are just for contouring. Cream bronzers give me a much more lighter, dewy, more natural finish.

    Do you use self-tanner? Nope, never have and never will (I second that pale power!)

    How do you get your summer glow? Chanel Pro Lumiere mixed with a little MUFE HD, a cream bronzer and cream highlighter.

    - Bronzer – I’ve started wearing it daily. I just bought a new one from Bobbi Brown and I’m still learning to apply just the right amount.
    - Self-Tanner – Just on my legs. I would love to find one for my face that didn’t freak me out about breakouts.
    - Summer glow. Currently just get it with my usual Orgasm blush and the BB bronzing powder. Would love to find a tinted moisturizer that had more pink undertones than yellow to give me a bit more color though…always hunting……

  21. Avatar of Kathryn Kathryn

    How often do you wear bronzer? Almost never. I have some but I’m so pale that it looks weird.
    Do you use self-tanner? I do, but I’m not sure why I do because I’ve tried many of the lotions and it never makes a shade of difference.
    How do you get your summer glow? I don’t! Self tanners don’t work, the sun doesn’t work, and I’m not interested in tanning beds. So I just stay super white.

  32. Avatar of Carly Carly

    ~ Everyday. I’m trying to use up my Smashbox Halo bronzer so I can go back to BB.
    ~ Never use self-tanner. No matter what the rave is, they always look fake to me and smell awful (even BE). Nothing beats the sun.
    ~ Sun + Halo bronzer + Bronze Shimmerbrick to highlight = Love. (I’m Korean so I play up the bronzers a little bit more than my non-asian friends)

  33. Avatar of Chantale Macaddict

    1) Every day that I wear makeup (so almost every day). It’s good for contouring and fiving a glow
    2) yes but only during summer and early fall. I use creams and sprays
    3) I use more browns/corals/oranges blushes and yellow-based highlighters.

  34. lala

    None. I love pale skin and don’t want to be in the fad that will end soon (making yourself orange)

  35. How often do you wear bronzer?

    Almost every time I put on makeup. Especially in Spring and Summer. I fade it out and drop it in Fall through Winter.

    Do you use self-tanner?

    Yes. I love Jergen’s Natural Glow. I am fair but I use the medium to tan shade. It is good tanner, moisturizing and easy and nearly foolproof to use. It is affordable and not as stanky as many other tanners. :D

    How do you get your summer glow?

    Partly from the sun. I know… Baaaad! But I am allergic to chemical sun block and the mineral stuff is so. expensive. I am usually in the sun in the late afternoon and evening. But I still get some colour. And, I use sunless tanner and bronzer. :)

  36. Pawsha

    How often do you wear bronzer? once a week maybe for a extra glow.

    Do you use self-tanner? Never

  38. Avatar of tzwiggy t_zwiggy

    How often do you wear bronzer? Couple of times in the summer. Almost never in the winter.

    Do you use self-tanner? No, they all look yellow on me. Not orange but YELLOW, often with a green cast. I also use a lot of glycolic acid products, so the color would disappear pretty fast anyway.

    How do you get your summer glow? Bronzer, peach/coral blush and a nice highlighter

  39. nicolet

    I wear bronzer everyday of the year with lighter coloring in the winter and a darker one for summer. I self tan and have a membership to a tanning salon for the mystic tan-I love it! I get my summer glow just from self tanning and try to stay away from direct sunlight since I have had precancerous skin cells removed.

    Do you use self-tanner? no
    How do you get your summer glow? good ol’ sunshine

  41. How often do you wear bronzer? – I don’t have one… I used to use Too Faced Snow Bunny (which didn’t really bronze) sometimes, but it broke. Also used a random reddish brown one from Revlon (I think) as blush sometimes, dunno what happened to that.

    Do you use self-tanner? – No.

    How do you get your summer glow? – Um. Highlighter, I guess, that’s how I get my glow all year ’round :P

  42. Lisa G

  47. Avatar of Emily Emily O.

    I wear MAC Refined Golden more often then not because I’m using the mirror in the compact and it happens to be there. I am not a fan of tan.

    I have UD Santa Tanita but I’m too lazy to use it

    I get my summer glow the same way I get my fall glow.. The intimate way ;) I’ve never found a cosmetic to replicate that ( sorry NARS)

  48. John

    Bronzer: I typically use bronzer to color-correct my foundation, which is usually a little too light or pink/yellow, and I use a more warm/red bronzer to make my face match my neck.
    Self-Tanner: I look better pale. :]
    Summer Glow: I’m not really sure what a summer glow looks like. Haha. I guess I would add a liquid highlighter like Armani’s Fluid Sheer #2, but yeah like I said above, I truly look better pale. Haha. But not like sickly pale. Just lighter.

  49. Liz

    never, never, and I don’t :p

    I’m pale as death, and while I used to be self-conscious about it when I was a teen, I now embrace my pale-ness. I can’t even use bronzer to contour as that makes me seem really silly! I use a slightly darker foundation shade.

  50. ak

    I wear my Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder in Deep whenever I have my foundation on nowadays.

    No.

    How do you get your summer glow?

    By using my Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder in Deep and just going outside a lot.

  51. mumtaza

    D. None of the above. I’m pink white, plus I’m Muslim, so everything I cover up is even more casper the friendly ghost b/c the sun never hits it. I figure I’ll have my revenge when I’m 60 and my legs and decollete are smooth as a baby’s butt. then again, they’ll prolly still be covered.

    How often do you wear bronzer? In the winter, maybe once a week, but in the summer I wear it every day I apply makeup, so maybe 5-6 times a week.

    Do you use self-tanner? Yes! I love it!

    How do you get your summer glow? I use Clarins self-tanners on my face and body, and then MAC, NARS, Too Faced, Dior and Guerlain bronzers usually seperately, but sometimes all on different body parts in different shades to really amp up a look! AND I proudly can say I never look orange!

    I have never used self tanner.
    The only glow I get is from my porcelain skin with a little bit of MAC’s Strobe Cream under my foundation.
