SheFinds Solution: How To Fake A Vacay

July 2, 2008 by Bryn

I don't get out much. Well, at least not to exotic, faraway destinations. And this Fourth of July is no exception. While families, couples, and friends are packing up and heading to the beach, I will remain in my concrete jungle – possibly taking a day trip to Central Park or catching up on my vintage shopping. But that doesn't mean I can't look like I went on vacation somewhere utterly fabulous. Besides, looking the part is what really counts, isn't it? Below are some products that will help you fake your best vacay ever. 

The first step is the tan. Mark's Instant Vacation Caribbean Self-Tanner ($8) (as featured in our Guide to the Best Self-Tanners) goes on smoothly, covers evenly, and instantly makes you look several shades darker – without the tan lines or premature wrinkles, of course.

After you've established your base tan, sweep on some tri-color bronzer from Sephora's Bronzing Essentials Set ($30) for that post-sun glow. The set also comes with a sunkissed lip gloss that will highlight your new exotic color.

One of the best parts of a beach vacation is the way my hair looks after spending a day near the water. Something about the mixture of sun and cool ocean breeze gives my otherwise limp locks amazing texture, volume, and waves. Now you can re-capture the "I've been lounging at the beach all day" look with the Sea Salt Tress Texturizer ($5). Spray it on wet or dry hair to create waves and volume you can usually only get from Mother Nature.
