Our hands-down #1 go-to skin product this entire summer has been Tarte Cosmetics' Glam Gams bronzer stick—which imbues sunkissed arms and legs with a tiny hint of gloss and shimmer. This is a great product because it perfectly complements a tan without looking oily (but is shimmery enough that its effect is better than just applying lotion), looks great in day, night, and photos, and doesn't stain clothes or discolor fabric. Get it this weekend during Tarte's Friends and Family Sale, where everything on their website is 40% off when you enter code FFAUG at checkout. True story. [Tarte]
