Now that we've reached the busy season for bridal, we're giving our brides an all natural glow for their wedding. Not only does it make brides look fabulous in a white gown, it makes their makeup application look even more glowing and gorgeous.
Here are some tips for brides wanting the perfect faux glow for the wedding day:
1) Schedule a test spray tan about a month before the wedding. This gives you the chance to test out what day you like the colour the best (i.e. some prefer the 2nd day when it's the darkest, versus other brides who prefer the colour on the 3rd day when it's naturally faded slightly). Also it gives you a good excuse to get a spray tan, whether it's for your bachelorette or for a busy weekend, showing off your spray tan is sure to make your girls envious of your glow and wanting to book their own!
2) Don't worry about anything getting on your white dress. As long as you've taken your first shower after the spray tan, the solution has sunk into your skin and any excess colour/bronzer has been washed off.
3) Choose a colour level similar to what your base colour is already. So if its in the middle of the Summer and you've been at the cottage this whole time, obviously you are going to be darker than you would be during the wintertime. If you have dark hair & eyes, you can get away with a darker tan, and those that are blond with fair skin, you'd want a hue that's a bit lighter.
4) When it comes to preserving the colour, stick to warm not super hot showers and blot dry with your towel (not rub). The moisturize generously with an oil-free moisturizer. Adhere to the proper prep and aftercare for your spray tan to ensure flawless colour on your wedding day; see the following link to all the prep and aftercare instructions here.
5) Make those appointments! Nope, a month out is not too far in advance. Even if you have to change the date or time of your spray tan during the week of your wedding, now is the time to book to ensure a spot.
