Michael Kors show
The models at Michael Kors were bronzed goddesses but something tells us that these tans are faux. The giveaway? The normally pale Agyness Dean, who shimmered down the runway looking more LA than UK. And who could blame her? Flaunting a gorgeous tan is an instant mood-booster and faking it equals no skin damage, as Sienna Miller well knows.
The sun-kissed starlet showed off a head-to-toe tan (and killer legs), which she topped off with barely-there make-up and a relaxed up-do. As always, she ticked every tanning box by keeping it streak-free, dewy and not a hint of orange in sight.
1. Before using your foundation, apply an instant tanning gel to your face and neck. (Try Rimmel Instant Tan Make-Up) If you’re lucky enough to be pimple-free, go for one with shimmer to create a super radiant finish. If you’ve got problematic skin, go for a matte finish so you don’t highlight any flaws.
2. Conceal as normal but remember you may need to go for a slightly darker one to compliment your tan.
3. Next, using a large blusher brush, dust bronzer (We love YSL Tresor D'Afrique Collector Sun Powder) on all raised points such as cheekbones, brow bones and your forehead. With regards to a shimmer or matte finish, the same rules apply as the tanning gel (see step 1)
4. Only powder oily T-zones: this look is about a dewy finish.
5. For lustrous limbs, you can either go for bronzing powders, oils or gels, just make sure you don’t go over-bored as it could turn into a Jodie Marsh disaster. And remember, if you don’t want to give the game away you’ll need to bronze your hands and feet. (Try Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Bronzing Oil)
6. When applying shimmer to your legs, stick to the golden rule: Only apply it to the front of your legs to avoid highlighting all the pesky problems like veins and orange peel.
