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?

Face of the day, General

Sunday’s face, outfit, nails…

So it’s Sunday. I have no plans, as of yet. I tore myself away from my latest True Blood book to get dressed and slap on a wee bit of well, slap. I kept it very simple today.  If I do go anywhere it will only be to the cinema. I also have some videos to record this afternoon.

The face:


The film ‘The Core’ is on in the background. I love that film. I’m a bit of a sci-fi geek. I’m wearing Nars Sheer Glow in Punjab, MAC Florabundance Lip Glass, Benefit Coralista on my cheeks, Emani on my eyelid, MAC Sable under my eye, The Body Shop eye liner in Carbon and The Body Shop Curvy Mascara.

And the outfit…


Shoes and tights are from Topshop, belt is from Zara, dress is from Penneys (€15 bargain!) Hairband is from Claires.You can see my decorated bedroom in the background. It turned out quite well. It needs  a few finishing touched though. I’m annoyed that I need tights today but it’s lashing rain.

And nails…


Catrice Nail Polish in Sophisticated (€1.49)
