Greece, Hawaii or Tropical Islands? The best bronzer for every skin tone Photo by: http://www.flickr.com/photos/kandyjaxx/

TIPS AND TRICKS TO USE A BRONZER to make the most of your bronzer, and get a natural-looking glow, remember to: * lightly dust the points where the sun naturally hits your face: forehead, cheeks and nose. Use a soft brush. * avoid the bronzed face/white neck effect. Bronzers can actually be used on eyes, lips, cheeks, decolletè, shoulders or body. If you're planning to show more than just your mug, sweep on! * reapply on your cheekbones at night, for added contouring and drama. * sweep some more just below the jawline for a quick slimming effect: the darker shadow makes your face standout and your double chin (just in case...) disappear.

Choose your bronzer shade and fake a jet-setter tan, without ever leaving home If you're desired effect is that of a healthy glow without actually hitting all the sun-soaked beaches around the world, you're in need of a bronzer. Bronzer is the magic makeup product that can warm up a winter, pale skin into and give you a glorious, safe tanned look. Furthermore, you need it for contouring and defining your facial features and evening out your skin tone.

Green Beauty: Ainy

Imagine a plant-based skin care line, so pure and magical that it only includes plants that are considered sacred in remote areas of the world. French skin care brand Ainy was founded by Daniel Joutard with the aim to promote diversity in cultures, plant life, and sciences. He spent many years studying the plants which are considered sacred in Andean and Amazonian cultures. Such plants have been used for centuries in protection and healing rituals. Daniel was impressed by the modernity of the knowledge and culture of these peoples and decided it was time the Western

world rediscovered the magic of the man-plant relationship. With unique natural ingredients sourced from fair trade producers and gatherers, this line of skin care products is a first of its kind. The pure formulas are youthgenerating creams and lotions. The unusual and original textures of AÏNY skin care products bring a sense of wonder to the soul while bringing comfort to the skin. The unique, intoxicating fragrance of the AÏNY skin care line was created by Patty Canac and is based on Schinus molle of the Sacred Valley of the Incas.

Plants used in Ainy products Sacha Inchi Plukenetia volubilis Sacha Inchi, the star-shaped plant from the Upper Amazon, is used in ointment form by Peruvian peoples as an anti-aging treatment. Pottery crafted in the shape of the plant’s fruit has been found in Pre-Columbian gravesites, an indication that the plant may have been used in rituals that have since vanished. This oil is particularly rich in omega-3 (50-53%) and omega-6 (35-40%), giving it excellent overall effectiveness on the first signs of aging. Ungurahua Oenocarpus bataua The Ungurahua is a palm tree from the Upper Amazon. Some peoples believe that the spirit of this tree protects them when they go to war, and that it increases a shaman’s power to contact the spirit world. The tree’s fruit is used as a good-luck charm in Bolivia, and as a love potion in Peru. Ungurahua oil has an exceptionally-high concentration of omega-9 (82-85%) and therefore provides intensive nourishment to the skin and accelerates repair of skin damage.

Achiote Bixa orellana Achiote is a small tree found in the forests of South America which bears a fruit containing a number of small, red seeds. Many Amazonian peoples view Achiote seeds as symbols of life and the human condition. In Ecuador, the seeds are used as protection from evil spirits. The seeds are a potent source of carotenoids, which are powerful natural antioxidants. Tree of Life Schinus molle Schinus molle, a sacred plant from the Peruvian Andes, is also called “the Tree of Life” in recognition of the plant’s numerous medicinal properties, including healing of wounds. Once used to embalm the bodies of Incas, it is used today in offerings to Pachamama, the Earth goddess, and to treat “melancolia,” a depression of magical origin. The natural fragrance used in AÏNY skin care is made from Schinus molle essential oil. This unique floral bouquet has a delightful, slightly peppery character that enchants the senses.

Your goal is to find sunglasses that make your face look a bit wider and rounder than it really is. Look for square or round sunglasses that shorten the length of your facial features. Furthermore, you could sport really trendy sunglasses whose frames are heavily decorated with crystals, studs or other accents.

8. If you have a diamond-shaped face

Try to soften the sharp corners of your face with oval or round sunglasses to moderate the contours of the face. Softly curved square frames can work as well. But always make sure the frame is not wider than the top of your cheekbones.

You could probably pull off just about any shape of sunglasses. The oval face works with every shape and is universally flattered by square, round and oval frames. Experiment with different colored frames and lenses, to see what emphasizes your best features.

10. Finally, the color

Outside mercury is rising, and it's time to update your beauty to a summer-proof level. Swimming, frolicking on the beach and simply sweating a tad more than usual all work against your photo-ready image. Enter waterprooof beauty products. You need them when it's summer and you want to look hot without looking "melted"; or when you're going to the movies with your beau and you know you'll be crying from beginning till the end (and you'd rather not have the panda eye effect when the lights turn on again); finally, you definitely need waterproof products when you're going to the pool or the beach for the day, and you want your looks to remain intact even after a refereshing swim.

Dimethicone, a silicone derivative which is unaffected by water and resistant to moisture. That's why, being so resistant, waterproof makeup lasts much longer compared to traditional makeup products. No tears, sweat or shower will make it run all over your face. And at the end of the day, a special makeup remover or cleanser is needed, because water alone can't dissolve these products.

this JETS by Jessika Allen one-piece has all the right elements to be a winner. Its plunging neckline slims the torso; the halterneck provides maximum support; the ruching at sides miniminze the middle area; finally the knot detail on the back straps take the viewer's attention away from the bottom.

SUPPORT YOUR BUST

Forget strappy bikinis, and go for bra-like tops instead to enhance your natural shape while supporting the girls. No need to go all matronly either. Modern bikinis offer just the right amount of coverage and support to hold you in and balance your assets.

NBZ STYLIST'S DO'S AND DON'TS Choose halternecktops with straps that provide coverage and support. Look for patterns or embellishments on the bottoms to help draw attention away from the bust. Avoid tiny triangle tops or swimwear that is too small. When going gor a one-piece, avoid all ruching, detailing or bulking fabric at the waist.

Shay Todd's Locket fastening bikini supports your bust without looking to obvious about it. The hip detail also draws attention away from the top part and adds interest to this bikini.

Try removable pads in order to add volume and create shape to a small bust. Avoid dark coloured tankini-style swimsuits. Also avoid vertical stripes and high neck one-pieces.

Feel free to play with cutouts and materials to add shape in all the right places. Opt for some flirty choices, your slim or boyish figure can afford them without looking cheap.

SLIM THAT TUMMY

NBZ STYLIST'S DO'S AND DON'TS Avoid sporty solid coloured one-pieces. Stay away from bandeau or strapless tops. When choosing a tankini, avoid the printed top-solid bottom combo as this will make the torso appear even bigger.

Feeling sensitive about belly exposure? Opt for a really sophisticated onepiece, so no one will wonder if you're actually trying to hide something. You'll just look too fab for that. A well-cut one-piece, like Tomas Maier's Halter neck ruched swimsuit, whittles your middle making for a smoother line. The clever rouches camouflage any bumps and bulges you may have. Plus the high-cut sides lenghten the legs and create a more balanced silhouette.

Choose demi-bra style, underwire or padding to maximize bust. Avoid boy shorts for they would cut you in in the wrong place. And also, avoid tiny bottoms or ruffles at the hips.

If you want to camouflage your hips and butt area, you don't have to go for a swimdress - unless you really want to. There are more options for curvy women today, and some are totally adorable.
