TEN UNDER $10—Bronzers and Illuminators

Summer skin is all about achieving that “just spent a few days on vacation” glow. However, going on a tropical beach vaca requires both time and money—both of which are limited resources for a college student. Also, spending hours in the sun (regardless of your location), is not advised for, like, a million reasons. (Increased chances of skin cancer, wrinkles, tan lines, awkward buns, just to name a few.)

That is why we have come up with a foolproof plan to achieve the summer tan of your dreams without sacrificing your time, money and health! All you have to do is find the perfect bronzer and illuminator to help you fake it until you make it. (And by “it” we mean a tan.)

Even better? The perfect bronzer, illuminator and brush can each be yours for $10 or less!
