More than often, self-tanners require work and time (and more than a little cursing). The breezier route to a summer glow? A few drops of liquid gold highlighter. Just smooth some on wherever the sun’s rays naturally hit the face: cheekbones, brow bone, forehead, bridge of nose (the collar bone and décolletage, too, if you’re heading out in the evening) for a subtle, sexy sheen that says summer in an instant.
