how to fake a tan in gloomy cannes.

by ray siegel

The red carpet at Cannes has been filled with more umbrellas than suntanned faces, but Erin Heatherton turned up to the Cleopatra premiere with a perfect glow. Since we'd advise against a real tan anyways, here's the best self tanner/bronzer combo to help you

fake it:

Lancome Flash Bronzer Oil Free Self Tanning Face Lotion, $34 Exfoliate and moisturize first, then apply generously all over your face and neck.

Smashbox Hydrating Perfecting Bronzer, $39 Wait at least ten minutes for your self tanner to dry, then use a blush brush to contour the face with bronzer. Start with the frame of your face and then use a minimal amount of product towards the center.

Illamasqua Red Lipstick, $24 Finish the look with a matte red lip.
