During awards-mageddon weekend, celebs were hitting the red carpets of both the VMAs and Emmys looking like bronzed goddesses with just the perfect hint of a sun-kissed glow. While summer may be winding down, you can still score golden color by using sunless tanner the right way.
Fiona Locke, spray tanner to the stars, prepped Dancing with the Stars judge Carrie Ann Inaba and Happyland star Camille Guaty for they red carpet appearances at the Emmys and VMAs, respectively, used Vita Liberata’s product line (Sofia Vergara is also a big fan) and shares her tricks for achieving a natural glow.
• To achieve Carrie’s look, Fiona applied pHenomenal in Medium with a Vita Liberata Tanning Mitt directly to her skin in circular motions to enhance her already beautiful Hawaiian skin tone.
• For all users trying to get the photo-ready glow, the key is to prep your body with skin polish (free of moisturizer) to allow the product to evenly absorb and fade perfectly.
• It’s super easy to contour desired areas by adding a fine line of additional mousse to the shadow under specific muscles. You can apply with a small makeup sponge or brush.
• Don’t prep the skin with moisturizer before applying the tanner as it will block the tan.
