Bronze, copper, rich cocoa brown -- a summer tan runs a wide spectrum, and your makeup regimen from winter may not cut it once warmer hues brighten your face. But there's more to making this seasonal switch than changing the color of your foundation (in fact, you may want to ditch the foundation altogether). Subtle sheens on the skin and fun pops of color on the nails and lips will help create a look that's fresh -- and, most important, natural.
