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.
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
