Tanning Techniques

There’s absolutely nothing worse than fake tanning and looking more orange than brown! I like a subtle and natural looking tan, it annoys the hell out of me when it goes streaky or patchy!!!

I love being brown but unfortunately I’m not one to tan whilst on my holidays!! I’m very fair so I have to be extremely careful.

In the past 5 or so years, I have tried ridiculous amounts of fake tan and I have finally found my favourite which is Fake Bake, I use the foam tan rather than the liquid tan. For me, it goes on a lot easier and it’s easier to find any streaks. I also prefer an instant tan, but as you probably know a lot of these wash off as soon as your have a shower. So if I’m going to use a gradual tan, I will use Dove – but I always notice a number of streaks the following day where I can’t see exactly where I’m applying it. However, if I am having a spray tan, I love Lauren’s Way! I’m not one for having sun beds as they are really dangerous and can really damage your skin. But thankfully one of my lovely friends Jordan, has done a spray tan course and is now qualified. She uses Lauren’s Way and it always comes out exactly how I like it – just a natural glow which is perfect. Obviously, if you haven’t had a spray tan before you go to bed extremely dark but once you shower the following morning, it is amazing.

Jordan is a make up artist, hair stylist, spray tanner & face painter from Essex. So if you live in Essex or are popping down for the weekend and need anything done, I would highly recommend giving her a call. I can honestly say you will not be disappointed!! Jordan’s business is called Make Up by Ja & you can find her on Instagram: @MAKEUPBYJORDANAMY or on Facebook: Make Up by Jordan http://www.facebook.com/MakeUpbyJA
