When I was asked if I Dare To Bare, the answer was definitely yes! I literally have not worn tights at all during autumn and winter, mostly because I'm either in trousers at work, high waist jeans or leggings at the weekend, or out on the town! I'm not sure what it is but I just haven't wanted to wear any skirts or dresses in the daytime apart from skorts. We all know of these shorts-skirt hybrids right? Well they are the perfect early evening outfit where you know you will be indoors, but you could wear cut-out boots or ankle strap heels.
I received a #PerfectPins party pack from Sunkissed with this majorly cute skort from Bank, which I had to team with an off-shoulder neckline for a Clueless vibe. Damn I wish I had a choker! No bare legs are ready without a little preparation, and nothing feels as good as a sunkissed glow. Not too baked and bronzed - just a hint of colour to warm up in these chilly months.
The party pack held a few golden tips I will definitely continue to use in the future. I'm used to tanning mousse but I haven't used Sunkissed before, so I would pick it up again if I wanted a warm tint. The key is to lightly gloss the tan over your skin so it just catches a hint of the product, rather than rubbing it in like a foundation. It should just sit on top of your skin, and always do ankles and knees last with the left-over product still on the mitt, moisturising them first. Less is more! Then use the mitt to dust over your skin lightly.
The Sunkissed exfoliator is awesome too as it meets the level of grit you want without being scratchy. I find finer beads exfoliate much better than large chunks of sugar or salt in the mixture. Now that I don't really wear my own clothes to work, I let me tan fade during the week and reapply on Fridays, ready for weekend activities. Hello to the weekend!
