St. Tropez's Dark sunless tanner ($40) is specifically formulated for darker complexions to bring out a believable effect. "It reacts with the melanin in your skin to deliver your most-natural dark tan," Evans says. Because the product is housed in an aerosol spray, you can also give your makeup an airbrushed effect by holding the bottle at arms length and applying one gentle spritz onto your face. For a more temporary option, try NARS' Body Glow ($59), which uses a blendable oil base and creates a beautiful golden sheen that isn't overly sparkly.
