For flaw-minimizing color that will last past your next shower, try one of the lotions, mousses, sprays, and foams that give you a glow. They smell better than ever, and you'll avoid the Oompa Loompa effect as long as you stay within two shades of your natural skin tone. Or use a self-tanning moisturizer that gradually darkens skin over several days.
