hi everyone! i have a normal darker complexion, and tan very easily. i used to use tanning beds but stopped last fall b/c i didn’t want to damage my skin anymore. altho it is nice knowing i’m not damaging my face further, the rest of my body seems to stay darker, but my face looks so much more pale and washed out.. probably b/c I wash it the most, plus use make up, remove it, etc…..
SOOO my question is, do any of you use lotion that tans your face? I do not want the orange-y look, and I want it to look natural. what are the best brands?

Bare Escentials has a Faux tan…check out http://www.barescentials.com or http://www.qvc.com and look at Bare Escentials. There is a TSV coming up in March for Bare Escentials on QVC that is all about Faux tanning.

I have bare minerals make up and I have the “warmth” which gives my face a little more color, BUT I feel like it’s never even and some places on my face are darker. I actually feel that way with just the regular foundation as well…. but you can tell more w/ the warmth b/c it’s darker…. I’m looking for something more like a lotion so it can be evened out better

Laura Mercier makes a good tinted moisturizer. It’s not really cheap but a tube lasts a while for me.

@cherrycoke: BE actually has a lotion called “Faux Tan”, as someone else said above. I have it and use it occasionally and I love it. I think it’s meant for the body, but I use it on my face with no problems and my skin is pretty sensitive. It comes out brown, definitely not orange at all. All you need is a tiny bit, and I usually mix it with my face moisturizer.
