The tea on lip color this season is tangerine, however, that color isn’t a good look for a tan. Instead, seek sunless tanning solutions from St. Ives, Tarte Cosmetics and Vita Liberata to get your natural Olivia Munn glow on.
It’s All In the Prep, Prep Baby
The first thing to consider when prepping for a day of sunless tanning action is to make sure that your body is free and clear of flaky skin. Like makeup, it’s important that your body be exfoliated with products like St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub ($3.79, Target stores, Walgreens), which is formulated for the face, but in a pinch can be used on the body to ensure a smooth application.
Sunless Tanning Made Easy -Face & Body
Now that your face and body are sufficiently, it’s time to get onto the main event – look sunkissed without the orange-effect. Tarte Brazilliance Skin Rejuvenating Marajuca Face & Body Self Tanner ($39, sephora.com) is marajuca oil-infused, which replenishes, rebuilds and brightens your skin’s appearance. Brazilliance also contains Vitamin E and sunflower seed oil to protect, moisturize and condition your skin as it colors to a gorgeous no-orange glow. To protect your hands, this self-tanner comes with a Tan Applicator Mitt.
Sunless Tanning Made Easy -Body Only
Specifically for tanning the body, try Vita Liberata Warm Untinted Tan Lotion for Body ($37.50, sephora.com) – the organic answer to tanning. Vita is an easy-to-apply untinted tanning lotion that applies like a clear moisturizer and gives a natural bronzed glow in four to eight hours, which lasts up to seven days. AND, there’s no funky odor to deal with because it’s odorless. Contains marine and organic botanical extracts that guarantee optimum skin conditioning and a totally natural-looking, flawless fade.
