ONE NIGHT ONLY TAN


 

KIINI_STEPH-52_1024x1024

If the commitment and risk of a spay tan is a little overwhelming, or you just want to give your skin that signature luminous, bronzed goddess glow – then this edit is for you.

Whether you’re starting from scratch, enhancing an existing tan or wanting to create that luminous red-carpet-glow for the beach or a specially 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!

Charlotte Tilbury Super Model Body

Like the packaging, Charlotte Tilbury’s Super Model Body is the chicest of them all. Designed to give the illusion of longer, thinner limbs with the play of light reflecting off the long beams of sheen it creates. Using the mess-free roller applicator, simply roll the length of each of your limbs to put the product to work before lightly blending with your finger-tips. This golden/champagne shimmer is perfect for all skin colours right down to those porcelain skin types where the products truly shines in all it’s glory. 9/10 (Click the product to buy)

Bondi Sands Wash Off Instant Tan

I love the self-gratification of that sweeping motion you can get when using a ‘spray’ tan! What separates Bondi Sands Wash Off ‘Spray’ Tan from the rest – other than the deep, richness in colour, is the spray nozzle itself. A directional spray that ever so lightly fans-out allowing you to get a consistent all-over coverage. Coming in both a light/medium and dark variation, the quick dry formula courteously works a treat especially when you’re running late and need quick dry tan. Oh and no need to worry about this product transferring onto your clothes either.  8/10 (Click the product to buy)

 

JBronze_Shimmer_ILLUMINATING_CREAM_Maxmade.com.au

J Bronze Shimmer Instant Illuminiser

One of my secret weapons to getting a super luminous, bronzed-goddess sheen! To get the maximum effect from J Bronze Shimmer Instant Illuminser I use a faux tan first to lift the natural skin colour. If I was to use a wash-off tan I mix both of the products together on J Bronze’s luxe Buffing Mitt – undoubtedly the best on the market – and blend the two products over the skin. Although this product is purely for adding luminosity you can see in the key image of this story or say a celebrity on a red-carpet, the luminous particles are on the larger side, so probably not the right product if you’re really fair and just want a glow. 8/10 (click the product to buy)

 

St-Tropez-Wash-OFfF-Instant-Tan-Medium-Dark_Maxmade.com.au

St. Tropez Wash Off Instant Tan

Perfect for the commitment-phobes in us that are looking for a one-night only affair, St. Tropez Wash Off Instant Tan provides instant colour – making you feel like a bronzed goddess for an evening,  and then easily washes off in the shower. That’s right, no streaky bed sheets! Coming in two shades, Light/Medium & Medium/Dark. I nearly always use the medium/dark as it has a deep shade of bronze. The Light/Medium is great if you’re super fair like a Cate Blanchett colouring and just want to gain a couple of shades. Application Tips I prefer to use a mitt as it helps with getting an even, all-over coat – particularly when it comes to buffing and blending out the product around the ankles and hands. Oh, and it stops the bottom of your hands going orange too!
