How to apply fake tan to your face

I often get asked how to apply tan to your face without it looking false or seeping into pores and lines. These are a few tips from my experience, please feel free to add your own tips my commenting, I’d love to read them.

To avoid the tan seeping into lines moisturise your face with an oil-free products right before application. Pay particular attention to the hairline and edges of the face, again it can look weird if the planes of the face are identical to the skin at the sides of the face. You want to avoid making your face look flat.

Keep the face a tiny bit lighter than the body. It looks a little fake if your the exact same tone all over as it’s normal for the skin on the body to be a slightly different shade to the face.

I would apply the tan to my face using a damp cosmetic sponge – thin, light coverage whilst working fast. This way you can apply a second night for a deeper colour but aren’t left with tan seeping into lines and pores.

So basically moisturise and use a damp sponge haha

What are your tips?

    I usually just use the Chanel Bronze Universel… I find that if I use a self tanner under my makeup it can be hard to judge whether or not my foundation will match nicely. Plus, since St Tropez is the only one that doesn’t break my face out, it’s a bit expensive to keep using when it doesn’t last half as long as tan on any other part of the body!

    Btw, love your blog, especially since it’s Irish and all the products can be found here… just started my own today, a bit lost so far but I’d love if you could check it out! Thanks :)
