Bronz­ers for every tan­ning emer­gency

EVE OF THE EVENT

Your sheets might look like a crime scene in the morn­ing but if you’ve got 24 hours, why not use them? • Tan­tas­tic Self Tan­ning Gel, $32.90, is as the name sug­gests, fan­tas­ti­cally even in ap­pli­ca­tion, non-sticky and gives a gor­geously golden glow. • L’oréal Paris Sub­lime Bronze Self-tan­ning Mist, $24.99, is like a pro­fes­sional spray tan in a can. Warn­ing: If this is your first golden rodeo, the novel noz­zle may be too tricky. You’ll also need some­one to help with your back but the pay­off will be oh-so worth it. • All-nat­u­ral Sukin Sun­less Bronz­ing Gel, $24.50, is a steady devel­oper. You don’t need a mitt but re­mem­ber to wash your hands!

A DAY’S GRACE

For when you’ve got just enough time to ex­fo­li­ate, ap­ply and wash off... • Le Tan Co­conut Wa­ter Self Tan­ning Lo­tion, $22.99, feels re­ally hy­drat­ing, and leaves skin feel­ing soft and smooth. • Touted as the dark­est tan in the world, Bondi Sands Ul­tra Dark Tan­ning Foam, $29.99, will en­sure even your near­est and dear­est do a dou­ble take. Girl­friend, you will be golden! • Re­peat af­ter me: “I’ve just got back from a month in Mar­bella and the St Tropez Self Tan Ex­press, $74.99, was my prod­uct of choice.” Leave on for one hour for a sun-kissed colour and up to three hours if you desire a deep, ul­tra-dark shade.

IN­STANT GRAT­I­FI­CA­TION

This is the epit­ome of a last ditch at­tempt. You’ll wash it off later, okay?! • Time­bomb Hol­i­day in a Bot­tle, $75, is great for adding a last minute beach babe look to your face. Ap­ply this liq­uid sun­shine spar­ingly and, as you would with foun­da­tion, en­sure you blend into the neck. • Bondi Sands Liq­uid Gold Self Tan­ning Dry-oil, $25.99, cre­ates a su­per nat­u­ral dark tan, FAST and dries within min­utes. Phew! • Sally Hansen Air­brush Legs Tan Leg Makeup, $29.99, not only gives your body a bronzed glow, it also blends away im­per­fec­tions like scar­ring and freck­les. A lit­tle goes a looong way so mix it with a body lo­tion or mois­turiser to avoid an ‘oh no’ mo­ment.

An un­ex­pected event has come up and your legs are look­ing white AF, but don’t freak out. Whether you’ve been given 24 or two hours’ no­tice, we’ve got you cov­ered for that last minute tan­ning emer­gency
