Flawless Fake Tan Tips

The weather is heating up and this pale, white as paper girl is ready to get my fake tan on.

I have tried so many self tanners I have lost count. From drugstore to high end. I worked for a while at a tanning salon /spa. I was spoiled at that time using the mystic tanning booth whenever I wanted. The color was always perfect. Brown never orange. Always even and never streaky or uneven.

A huge part of that is the preparation before hand. If you take the time to take care of your skin then the self tanning process will be as smooth as the tan itself.

The Week Of

Hydrate with a heavy duty body lotion, balm or oil.

Get in the habit of putting lotion on every single day. When you get our of the shower is the best time to do this, you will be locking in the moisture from the humidity and steam from the shower.

The Night Before

Repeat above steps.

The Day You Self Tan

Shower, Shave and Exfoliate.

Dry off completely from the shower, do not apply anything to your skin. In order to achieve a even, streak free tan you must have bone dry skin.

Right Before You Tan

Apply a light application of body Butter or a thick lotion to your knees, elbows, cuticles on your hands and toes, ankles and any other dry patches you may have.
Now you are ready to apply your self tanner.

I apply mine at the end of the day and sleep in it. When I take my shower in the morning I am beautifully bronzed and ready to go!

My All Time Favorite Long Wearing Lipstick

With so many different long wearing lipsticks out on the market now it is hard to really figure out what one will work for you without spending mini fortune. I have many ,many brands of these lipsticks claiming to be "long wear." None of them stand up to the lasting power or quality of my favorite long wearing lipstick of all time. 

Every holiday, vacation or event that I go to I always gravitate to one of these beautiful colors. I often bring a few on trips. Best part they are not drying at all, like most I have found that leave my lips in worst condition then before.  Laying power is a understatement with these babies. The swatches on my hand stayed on from the time I filmed, around 1 pm all the way to the next morning. I washed my hands at least 12 times plus took a shower!! I made dinner and did laundry. 

So how do you remove them? Oil, just a little olive oil or coconut oil rubbed on the lips, then wipe gently with a warm, wet cloth. Wash your face as normal and you are good to go. 

Now go ahead and watch this video to see what I an so b excited about. Don't forget to subscribe!! XOXOX Hope
