Your nieces and nephews bawl uncontrollably when they see you with bronzer on as they can hear their aunt’s voice coming out of what is an unrecognizable entity, and your dog gives you the “turn-head-to-the-side” look.
They are confused, and rightly so. Why are you doing this to yourself and them?
Orange may be the new black, but it is not the new “tan”. They are different things.
You can be orange, or you can be tanned. If a weird orange second skin is, for some strange reason, exactly what you are going for, then carry on.
Just be fully aware that you are traumatizing small children and your dog, and that your family will likely have a “sit down” with you in the very near future.
If, however, you would actually like to pull off the look we are almost 100% sure you are really going for, we can help!
No longer will you leave the house looking like a crazed, uber-zealous Dutch soccer fan (which, statistically speaking, you probably are not) or as if you have lost a bet of some kind. Painting yourself orange is a thing of the past, starting today!
With our “best bronzers” list you’ll ditch not only the orange look but also the dilemma of having your usual slow-drying bronzer rubbing off on everything you forgetfully come in contact with (even after you have waited the manufacturer’s recommended timeframe).
A deep, convincing, and sexy tan is finally just within your reach.
