Beauty Secret: Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs

Back in the olden days when self-tanners were fairly new and before instant bronzers/tanners really even existed, it was hard out there for a girl who does not tan naturally in the sun and who doesn't want to fry in a tanning bed.

It makes me laugh out loud to think of all of the self-tanning experiments that took place at our LSU Sorority House.  From forgetting to put it under our arms (you lift your arms to dance or something and have a stark white armpit), to using stuff that would get all over your clothes, to the stuff that would leave dark streaks on your arms if a few rain drops hit you... it was a HOT MESS!  You get the picture- you name it, we tried it.

Then... the clouds parted, and we discovered...

Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs Light Glow Leg Makeup for Fair Skin Tones

Meant to be a replacement for pantyhose, it's pretty much like makeup for your legs.

Application is key... I mix it in with a little, tiny bit of body lotion (not too much bc then it will come off easier on your clothes) to apply it.  If you just spray it directly on your leg without rubbing it in, you will end up looking (as I said before) a hot mess!

I keep this handy in my bathroom for all self-tanning emergencies.  Sometimes you just don't have the time to get a spray tan... and sometimes a spray tan can go bad.  You can use it all over your body, but I'd stay away from the face.

Spray it on, let it dry, and it will stay put until you shower.

(p.s. spray in your shower or outside b/c the stuff will get all over your walls/carpet!)
