How to apply bronzer, from MONET MINERALS

Spring is here - Fake a tan!
Everyone loves a nice glow, but who wants to risk the harmful effects of the sun? I know we all (especially those of us in the midwest) are desperate to get rid of that Casper white color once the temperature is nice enough for shorts. But before you turn to a tanning bed or your nearest beach, try a mineral bronzer to give yourself a healthy glow.

I've tried bronzer before,
it made me look orange and/or dirty

This is very common of the bronzers we're used to, but mineral bronzers are natural and very forgiving. Plus, a lot has to do with how you apply your bronzer. It's not hard, but there are a few simple steps you must follow if you want a beautiful sun-kissed tan.

The secrets

First cleanse and gently exfoliate your skin as you normally do. Apply a moisturizer and wait 10-15 minutes before applying your makeup.

Apply your concealer and foundation as you normally would. Even if you are already tan and the bronzer matches your skin tone, I recommend using a veil under your bronzer to aid in oil absorption.

Once you're done with your foundation, use your kabuki brush or another big powder brush and apply a small amount of your bronzer to your brush.

Gently sweep the brush across your forehead, down the bridge of your nose and around the tip of your chin (like you are making the letter "U").

Add a bit more powder to your brush, making sure to tap off the extra and gently brush the bronzer down the hallows of your cheeks and then to the apples of your cheeks (you are basically making a soft outline of your face).

I also like to brush it across my eye lids and my neck and chest.

Set your bronzed look with a translucent or tan veil.

Other tips

If you apply too much, tap off the brush and blend until you remove the excess.

Don't stop at your face! You can use mineral bronzers on the rest of your body, too.

Skip the sweaty pantyhose and apply bronzer to your legs for a night on the town.

A light shimmer eye shadow and nude glossy lips top off a beautiful summer tan.

Where to purchase??? I can help!

Turning 44, Am I complete yet?

Today in People magazine, supermodel Rebecca Romijn stated she felt complete with her twins. This Saturday, May 16th, I turn 44. I don't know when I'll be complete, but my two daughters sure make my life interesting to say the least.

I'm 8 yrs older then Ms. Romijn and already know the joys of motherhood, I wish every mom luck with their journey. Good luck with math, as Becca and I struggle with getting her math homework done. Needless to say, we haven't been able to get it done recently, and it's not her favorite subject either. My personal feeling is that kids do get too much homework these days.

Abby will be in the 5th grade, and I'm not sure how we feel about that yet. Soon we will give camping a try. Stay tuned for our adventures as summer is approaching.
