If the commitment and risk of a spay tan is a little overwhelming, or you just want to give your skin that classic red-carpet glow – then this edit is for you.

Whether you’re starting from scratch or enhancing an existing tan for a one-night-only occasion, it’s essential to have the right products on hand. Luminous, dewy, matte – whatever your desire, the aim is to create flawless, natural colour and it’s all with a ‘no strings attached’ kind of attitude! It’s the ‘wash and wear’ or in this case, the ‘wear and wash’, of the self-tanning world!





Tom Ford Skin Illuminating Duo

Ever wondered how to achieve that Farrah Fawcett meets Blue Lagoon kind of sun-kissed colour? The one where the skin has that transparent bronzed look? It’s that kind of skin that at night it looks like it’s been lite by a candle and by day there is that for that ‘forever young’ out of focus glow? Well say hello to Tom Ford Skin Illuminating Duo. The slightly darker colour you can use during the evening to give you that warm candlelight glow and the lighter for the day. Tip; These lightly shimmering shades can be applied individually on the high points of your face or layered together to create a multidimensional glow. The choice is yours!!




Guerlain Terracotta Spray Bronzing Powder Mist

Working in a large circular motion, spray over the face and décolletage to give a soft makeup-free, all-over tan OR simply layer over the top of your makeup to refresh and give your day-to-day look a holiday. Either way, Guerlain’s Spray Bronzing Powder Mist is a mess free, fool-proof way to tan even the lightest of skin tones with little to no effort. It’s a hand-bag must-have!





Benefit High Brow Glow

The devil is the detail. Sometimes the most simple of things can make all the difference when accentuating your eyes and tan. Benefit’s High Brow is a favourite and the perfect way to make eyes pop with a dewy highlight of goodness that contrasts against your tan, making your skin ultimately look more sun-kissed.





Red Carpet Kolour Luminous Body Glow

It doesn’t get any easier and less committal than this. Even skin tone, enhance colour, and brighten and illuminate skin in a single wash-away coat. Coming in 3 delicious shades – light, medium and dark – that sets once it dries, removing any concern of messy orange makeup stains on your clothes. It’s no wonder it’s become the industry’s best-kept secret weapon. Tip; Apply with a tanning mitt for a streak-free even coverage. ‘I never leave go to work without it!’
