I recently have been seeing a new way to offer my clients who necessarily don't want to much color but to help correct uneven skin tones or tan lines from the summer sun.
Sunless can do this in a realistic way as long as you stay on the lighter side its very natural looking. As we go from summer to fall you can still add some depth with sunless and with the rich colors for fall a sexy glow is a must accessory!!
I have also seeing an increase in Brides who just want to even out their skin tone versus looking tan or my fave is to work with my Brides and a Professional Makeup artist of course for your day so that all is beautifully matched. The sunless when kept light takes the edge off the flashes as night falls as well and if your getting married in the evening I highly recommend a subtle glow so your not washed out with lighting and the many camera flashes!
So this time of year is of course wedding bell's season and with that comes beautiful Brides! I have my share of them and they are so cute to work with, they are nervous, excited and yes a little on the demanding side but hey those pictures will last a lifetime!
When doing your sunless session for your most special day you want to take a few things in mind...mainly that you look like you only even prettier :) Setting off your eyes, smile and evening out skin tones or tan lines is what is should be about.
You do not want to look back and look at those pictures and dread that to dark spray tan...No retakes here.
When you make an appointment chat with the artist and see what her philosophy is when it comes to Brides and if she works with alot of them. If you have time 2 weeks before the wedding do a trial run believe me its worth the money, after all how much are those wedding pictures costing you?
Do your prep like nothing else even scrub those pinkie toes girl! The artist should always put you at ease and discuss your desired outcome. The only time I use a darker solution is if my client is naturally darker skin or is always tan looking anyway that way it will still look like her in the picts NOT someone else.
Happy Wedding Bells!!
I get so excited when I see anything in magazine or online about sunless tanning and the benefits of the sunless way!
