You know when you flip through the pages of a magazine and you come across a steamy fragrance or underwear ad featuring a scantily clad model lying on the sand, their skin shimmering with a moist deliciousness that makes you want to lick it? Er, is that just me?
I’m calling all brides, bridesmaids and every lady who plans on showing some skin this summer to listen up because these finds will give your bod a gorgeous glisten.
NEWEST LOVE: Prtty Peaushun (pronounced potion) Skin Tight Body Lotion ($36).
Los Angeles-based celebrity makeup artist Bethany Karlyn has been using this luminous formula on her clients for years (Rihanna, Brooklyn Decker and Pam Anderson are fans). Now it’s available to those of us who live outside the Hollywood circle! Made with 92% raw ingredients that include a combo of fruits and veggies such as soothing avocado oil, stimulating grapefruit wax and antioxidant green tea extract, the light-reflective formula with subtle golden undertones gives skin a sexy dew that we equate with Victoria’s Secret and Sports Illustrated swimsuit models. Speaking of SI, word on the street is that next year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover model will be lubed up with Prtty Peaushun. One note of caution: the liquid formula does have an oil base so be sure to shake it up before applying and give it time to dry before dressing.
LONG-TIME FAVORITE: Scott Barnes Body Bling ($38). For years I’ve depended on the man who gave J. Lo her glow and rubbed this bronzer on my decollete, arms and legs before big events. I even brought it to the bridal suite during one of my friend’s weddings. The bridesmaids loved what it did for my fair skin so much, the Bling got passed around like candy. BG tip: dab a little bronzer in your cleavage to enhance what you’ve got. Note: allow the product to dry after application or else you could end up with smears on your party dress.
