To perk up your complexion quickly and safely, turn to bronzers, which lend a subtle glow to any skin shade. The key to making fake color look convincing is to use a product that's a shade or two darker than your skin tone. Best for beginners is loose powder; it's easier to apply and works well on all skin types. Sweep it over areas that the sun tends to target, such as the forehead, cheeks, nose and chin.
