Generally speaking, the term "faking it" doesn't usually carry positive connotations. 
Lord knows there's enough fakes and disingenuous people in this world. When it comes to the sun and getting some color, faking it can be a very good thing!  I was allowed to sample this great line of Borghese bronzing products that combine quality and protection with a subtle and believable color. It leaves you glowing without running the risk of looking like a Snooki wannabe or an artificial pageant queen.  I especially love the Summer Glow tinted moisturizer with SPF 20 - it goes on like a dream without looking like makeup and provides protection, moisture and color without being heavy or masque-like.
Find it for yourself here or at your favorite beauty counter.
Have a wonderful first weekend of June, everyone!

a "snookie wannabe" or an "little miss sunshine" is more the look I want! Did you ever see that movie...I bet you would love it.
Have a fantastic weekend.

Having wised up over the years, this is one area where I agree, faking it is a mighty good idea. I happen to like Borghese products and use to use them a lot. You are giving me new reason to try them again,and a good fake tan can be had with them? I am sold!

I had a friend tell me my legs were blindingly white and could use some sun, and fast!

I hate the sun and wear SPF 100 so maybe I should look into some glow for my body!
