Hate Your Arms?

Unless you’re a freak-of-nature, most women hate their arms.  Some are blessed with toned, muscular arms, some achieve it through exercise, lifting weights and customized diet plans and then there are the majority, who work and work and work and don’t see any results.

Here’s the scenario:

You’ve just put on a sleeveless dress for work.  Looking at your arms in disgust, you search your closet for a shrug or jacket.  But, it’s too dag-on hot to wear something like that.  It’s getting late and you need to make a decision…and quick.

What if I told you there was a way to look more toned without having to exercise?  Sounds great, right?  Well it is…and easy to do.

1.  Buy a powder a couple of shades darker than your skin tone and a large powder brush.

2.  Flex your bicep muscle to give yourself a guide as to where to brush on the powder.

In less than five minutes you can create the illusion of more toned arms.

So, don’t put away that sleeveless dress but definitely put away that shrug until cooler weather arrives.

*For a more dramatic look (in the evening) try using a bronzer with a hint of sparkle.  Don’t overdo it, though.  You don’t want to look like you’re sweating. 

Have Fun!
