Makeup Mayfest Day 5

If you are that girl that is guilty of laying in the tanning bed every spring so when 
you pull out that first spring dress you look like you've just come back from days at the beach 
then stay tuned for a better and instant way to get tan. 

There is something about having a good healthy glow that makes us all feel better. 
Thinner, prettier, healthy, etc. I used to lay in the tanning bed every spring, but have found 
some alternatives that I think are great. 


I have two favorite tanners. One for all over body and the other for just your face. 

St. Tropez bronzing mousse (right) is sold at Sephora and is the best tanning 
product out there! Hands down. I have recommended this to so many people and everyone 
loves it. It gives the most natural looking tan that adjusts to your skintone. Not only does 
it adjust to your skin, but it is also build-able so you can get the desired color you want. 

The other great thing about St. Tropez is that your tan is instant. Once applied it dries in 
a couple minutes and you can jet out the door for an event, date, girls night out, and WAM
BAM thank you mam you look like you just got back from the Caribbean. 

Another tip I will say for St. Tropez is the longer you can leave it on without showering 
the better. Apply it at night and sleep on it. Or, apply it at night, where it out and about and if you
can get a little dirty wait until the following night to shower. I know that is a big stretch for 
some of you, but if you know you are going to be lounging around the house all day just leave
it on as long as possible. The longer is stays on before showering the better effects you will have
with longevity. 

The Clarins Liquid Bronze Self Tanning lotion is also sold at Sephora and is 
designed specifically for your face and decolletage. It's a moisturizer with subtle tanners 
that make for a beautiful natural tan on your face that doesn't look overdone. 

The same is true for Clarins as St. Tropez with leaving it on as long as you can. 
I suggest applying this at night to a clean face and letting it soak in all night. 

These are both top of the line high end tanners that I love and will continue to 
re-purchase because of the quality and look that these both give. 

What are your favorite self tanners?

What’s The Story, Brooke?

I'm Brooke. Brooke Story to be exact... hence the title of my blog. I'm southern, still barely in my twenties, and have a few too many lip glosses in my purse.
