Cosmetics can be highly subjective, looking and working differently on various skin tones and types, as well as showing different levels of application and expertise due to the user’s skill level. That’s why it’s so important to be able to truly play with the makeup items you’re considering before making a purchase, as well as soliciting helpful advice from a professional knowledgeable with the brand. E.l.f. Cosmetics (eyes lips face) has recently expanded its Studio Store offerings to a second location in the Financial District, close to the seaport, the main thorough fare of Broadway, and landmarks such as Wall Street, the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, and off-price retailer department store Century 21.

I feel like just as the season is winding down, I’m just garnering an ample summer glow! If you’re like me and would like to extend that amplified look into the fall and even winter, here are three amazing products that you’ll want to apply to legs, arms, or wherever you need a bit of an even color boost.
Votre Vu Silk Stockings gives the option to touch up imperfections such as veins and scars, or to canvas the skin in a light layer of color for an all-over faux glow. It includes natural ingredients such as linden extract (anti-inflammatory benefits), Roman chamomile extract (skin conditioning), calendula (healing, anti-bacterial), and cornflower (cooling and toning properties). Retails for $34; available exclusively at VotreVu.com.
The LORAC TANtalizer Body Bronzing Luminizer has been a favorite of mine for two years now, and it exquisitely delivers a bronze glow wherever you may need a little extra oomph. Plus, since I’m on the pale side, it doesn’t over do the bronzing effect on me, a must since I want to look like I’m glowing, not dirty! If you’d like to try a richer shade, there’s also a TANtalizer available in a Deep hue! Retails for $32.
Karin Herzog’s Tone & Tan 2-in-1 toning cream and self-tanner is unique in that it goes on as rich, white cream, yet is sheer enough to easily blend into the skin while gradually tanning, tightening, and toning the skin. Plus the scent is unique to the category, veering in a powdery, fragrant direction instead of one reminiscent of the sunscreen or something overly chemical. The natural ingredients (the formula isheavily revolve around the oils of green tea, jojoba, and avocado, with vitamin B12 added in to help with the metabolic functioning of processing nutrient absorption and the breaking down of fatty acids. Retails for $55, available at KarinHerzog.com.
