Summer beauty must-haves perfect for curing winter blues

The colder it gets outside, the more we grasp at any reminder that it once felt like summertime.

With a few beauty adjustments, you can turn your bathroom into a beach-themed spa. Why not? It's February, and you deserve a little sun in your life — even if it's from self-tanner. Try these seven products if you want to be (or at least feel like) a bronzed goddess all winter long.

Nothing says "June fling" like a temporary tat of a gold feather. It may be hiding under your sweater — for now — but you'll still know it's there. (Lulu DK, $10)

2. In-shower gradual tan

What pairs better with a temporary tattoo than golden skin? Devote three minutes (yep!) to getting bronzed in your next shower. The formulation works off your existing skin tone, so you'll have a natural glow that deepens the longer you use it. (St. Tropez, $25)

3. Your favorite summer perfume

4. Creamy eye treatment with avocado
