While we're all about a pretty porcelain complexion like Dita Von Teese's, we also loved a good bronze skin moment (ahem, Gisele). And given that May is National Skin Cancer Awareness Month, Dr. Debra Jaliman, dermatologist and author of Skin Rules, would like to remind you that any exposure to the sun whether indoors or outdoors will damage your skin and that every 57 minutes someone dies of a malignant melanoma. So, it's not worth it to go in the sun unprotected to get a tan when these products will deliver the same results minus the harmful rays!
How to get Minka Kelly's cheek shimmer:
One of the quickest ways to contour your face and give off the illusion of sculpted cheekbones is through highlighter. Using a tiny amount of MAC Lustre Drops, take your ring finger and tap the pearlescent bronzer onto the skin in a slanted motion from the top apple of your cheek up towards your temple.

How to get Heidi Klum's bronzed back:
When you're going backless à la Klum, a slight tan makes you look more toned—and that's a fact. Tarte's hybrid gel formula is amazing because it leaves you with a streak-free look while simultaneously moisturizing your skin thanks to it's miracle ingredient: maracuja oil. PS—it doesn't smell like self tanner at all, triple bonus!

How to get Blake Lively's flawless face:
A little glow goes a long way and you can steal Blake's by applying Jergen's newest face formula for a gradual color that builds daily.

It's no big surprise that the queen of spray tans, Kimmy K, has her own line of self tanners. Kim and her sisters launched Kardashian Sun Kissed earlier this year, which is a three-step system that's apply and go (and short skirt necessary). Time to get involved.
