Ask the Expert: How to get the perfect tan for your big day

Hey Ladies,

To get the perfect tan for your wedding, here are some products that I love to use. They create a beautiful bronze look without the mess of spray tanning and minus the not-so-lovely orange hue of most self tanning products.

1. For a gradual hydrating subtle self tan, or to maintain color after a vacation, try Aveno Continuous Radiance Moisturizing Lotion with natural soy and gradual color enhancer. It's best used 3-4 times a week, one month before the big day.

2. MAC Skinsheen leg spray - It is non-greasy mouse formula, and gives a bronzed tan that lasts a few days. It will not get on your clothes or sheets. It will gradually fade over a few days. Apply all over the body on dry clean skin, and do not moisturize before using.

3. To add an extra glowing shimmer to the body on the day of your wedding, use Golden Bronze Loose Powder by MAC. Use a large powder brush, like #150 by MAC, and lightly dust all over the body.

Tips on self tanning
- Always test out the product before the day of your wedding to make sure you get a desirable tone. I highly recommend using a body buffer brush to help eliminate streaks or uneven tones.

- Make sure you apply the tanning products on clean, dry skin (no body lotion beforehand) in order to ensure that the tanner doesn’t rub off on your clothes.

- Be extra careful when using the Golden Bronze Loose Powder by MAC as it can get on clothes so definitely make sure to apply it before you put your gown on ladies!

Happy tanning!

Til next time,
