A friend, who works in customer service at a big cosmetics company, said they refer to spring as “orange bride season.” That’s a testament to the fact that it usually takes some experimenting to find the right self-tanner.
The quest often leads to a few weeks of orange skin; a nightmare of Bridezilla proportions if you’re getting married before the orange wears off.
This summer we discovered a product that released us from the possible horrors of “orange bride season.”
If we tell you it’s leg makeup, you might be transported back a few decades to the ghastly pancake makeup high school majorettes wore as they marched down Main St. It was thick as house paint, usually the wrong color, and it rubbed off on their uniforms.
Now 21st century technology has delivered the perfect tan-in-a-bottle for the pale and impatient among us. And if you make a mistake, you just sponge it away.
Orange looks best on oranges.
Here are the products that made our legs look like airbrushed perfection.
