A Tan Fling

A Tan Fling

Step One: Prep

Exfoliation is always the first step when tanning, to make sure you get rid of any dry skin that could cause discolouration. Dry off well and wait 10-15minutes after showing before you apply any products, this will allow your skin to come back to room temperature. If you have wet hair make sure you put it up and use a towel to make sure no water will drip onto your skin.

Step Two: Bronze

Apply the Wash Off Bronzing Gel with the Tanning Application Mitt in a circular motion, starting at the feet and working your way up to your face. It can be useful to stand in-front of a full length mirror to make sure you can see any spots that you may have missed, and make sure the colour is even all over. Blend the bronzing gel in well and allow to dry. It's important that the product has properly absorbed into the skin before moving to the next step.

Step Three: Accent

Apply the Body Glow Oil over the top of the Bronzing Gel to add a light shimmer and glow to your skin. It works really well on the legs to make them glisten and also on the décolletage to add definition and radiance. It's also a potent moisturiser and can help you gently build up to a desired colour. 

Step Four: Finish

When the Body Glow Oil is dry, apply the LB Cream to your face and neck to create an even base and coverage.  Build up the colour with the Skin Illuminator Matte Bronzer, it's not shimmery and will allow you to contour and shape your face, it also blends perfectly with the LB Cream to give you a natural healthy glow. Add bronzer and mascara to finish the look.
