New from Valerie Beverly Hills is the adorably named Thumbalina Bronzer ($55). This ultra-fine, silicone-based powder is developed in Italy and packed into a super-light compact.
With just a sweep of your powder brush, you can achieve a safe and luminescent tan. You can wear Thumbelina alone or over a tinted moisturizer or your favorite foundation.
To apply, just smile and dust the apples of your cheeks. Blend up towards the hairline and then down and around your chin to soften. Don't forget to hit your temples and to accent the areas where the sun would naturally hit your face.
If you're looking for a more sparkly bronzer, makeup artist Valerie Sarnelle has also created the Angelina ($55). A sister bronzer to Thumbelina, this one has a hint of frosted pink, so it can also be used as a highlighter.
