Faking a just back from vacation glow is easier than ever with these four bronzing formulas.


A transparent gel mist is the easiest to apply, and creates an even tanned look.  This no shimmer, no transfer formula creates a healthy glow.

1. The Body Shop Honey Bronze Tinted Leg Mist, $25.


Get a believable tan with this formula that glides on and stays put with a matte finish for 12 hours. Plus, build up the bronze by applying multiple layers.

2.  Benefit Hoola zero tanlines body bronzer, $30.


Best for use on the face and neck.  Apply with a kabuki or extra large powder brush for the most even results.

3.  YSL Les Sahariennes bronzing stones.

4.  Tom Ford Bronzing Powder, $95.


The airy, delicate texture dries easily when applied, and leaves a soft all-over glow. Also, great for travel.

5.  James Read Express Bronzing Mousse, $54.
