Tone-up trio

Dita Von Teese might be famous for her porcelain complexion, but some make-up mavens can’t function without a golden glow, even in the depths of winter. For them tan specialists James Read have created the Tan Edit Face, comprising Sleep Mask Tan Face, a lightweight gel that leaves a subtle tan while you snooze; Day Tan SPF 15 Face, a soothing cream that promotes a gradual golden complexion; and Tan Perfecting Enzyme Peel. Holidays are coming.
