I am a huge fan of fake tan and even though it’s winter I still like to look like I have just come back from a long holiday abroad (I wish). However, my tan routine does change when it gets to November/December as it would be a bit unrealistic to look really brown when it is winter. I like my tan to look subtle and natural, and these products I am going to talk about here work perfectly!
I have talked about the FakeBake tanning range before and as you will know from that post, I have never found a tan to work better for me than FakeBake. I usually use FakeBake Flawless Darker which is a tanning liquid. You can’t go wrong with this tan at all, it is streak free and so easy to apply. It also comes with a free tanning mitt which is actually really good quality and reusable as I just put them in the wash when I’ve used them. The tan lasts about a week and fades nicely, leaving no patches. This tan is quite dark, therefore in winter I normally only use this one if I am going out. I prefer to use the FakeBake 60 minutes self-tan liquid during the week. This is one that you wash off after either 1 hour, 2 hours or 3 hours depending on how dark you want to be. I use this normally twice a week to keep it topped up, and it works brilliantly. It is a lot more subtle and it still has the same amazing quality of FakeBake Flawless Darker. I would recommend either FakeBake tan to anyone!
If I am going out, I apply Ted Baker’s Body Shimmer Soufflé before I apply my tan. It is a golden cream with a shimmer, when you apply the cream it moisturises your skin while giving it a little touch of a bronzed glow. I find that my fake tan takes better to me skin when I apply a moisturiser first, and this mouisturiser gives some sparkle too!
I got this Zoella Beauty Body Fondant Shimmer Balm not long ago and I have been loving it quite a lot. First of all the packaging is so cute and when you open it up you get a little puff sponge too! This is a thick bronze balm with a shimmer and I apply it generously to my shoulders, arms and collarbones to add even more of a glow to my fake tan before I go out. It smells deliciously sweet and applies really smoothly. It reflects in the light or if you are getting a photo taken, it looks so stunning.
