Say No To Tan Lines | Tanning Tips for The Bride To Be

Last week we shared our annual springtime skincare tips, this week we are extending our conversation.  When it comes to  thinking about skin care and your wedding day most brides tend to only think about their facial complexion so today we’re going to talk about two of the most neglected areas in skincare, the neckline and the décolleté. Spring is here!  After a year of lockdowns and self quarantining brides are running for the  sun! Now that the World is opening up and weddings are indeed a thing again we’re in absolute awe of the trends in gowns for 2021.  Brides are showing off the skin they’re in.  This years styles and trends are all about allure with stunning asymmetrical cuts at the shoulders and décolleté,  and jaw dropping backless designs.  With outdoor weddings, elopements and mini-mony’s surging this season shorter dress styles are having a moment too and you’ll definitely see a nod to the ’90’s with streamlined silhouettes like sheaths and slip dresses. There are certain things we always say are worth the splurge for your wedding day.  Your hair and makeup, your dress and your photography. With the ever advancing technology in  high def quality of photography and videography today who wouldn’t want  a dewy sun kissed glow on their wedding day?  It simply makes you feel fabulously extraordinary on your most photographed day. Good color starts with good skin so first things first, before you go rushing into the sun, the tanning salon or buying expensive self tanning products examine your daily skincare routine and if you’re not already including your neckline and your décolleté this is the perfect opportunity to start.   No matter what technique you choose to achieve your desired level sunny glow if you don’t prepare your skin first you risk getting blotchy or streaky results.   Despite all of the warnings we have about harmful UV rays we know some of you are die hard “Sunners” so, if you insist on achieving  your sun-drenched glow all-natural (we highly discourage this method) then PLEASE be sure to use an high SPF sunscreen and reapply it often.  (More tips on sunscreen here)   Self tanning products are a great option and can be used in the privacy of your own home and are pretty affordable.  If you choose this method then we recommend you get an early start.  Building your base can take a couple of weeks so you’ll want to allow some time to fine tune your results.  Choose a shade that is a bit lighter than you’d like as these products tend to darken with time and continued applications. Spray tanning of course is the fastest way to achieve your tanning goals.  If you choose a spray with a bronzer you’ll be glowing right away, but be weary of choosing a tone that is too dark. Don’t forget we mentioned plunging back lines too so so don’t forget to turn in the booth. (lol) (remember the Ross Geller experience on the hit television show “Friends”?) For those of you that aren’t shy and would rather take all of the guesswork out of it airbrush tanning is the way to go!  Custom calibrated UV-Free tanning solutions give you an even hue and a skilled technician can also use the fine mist to define muscles or conceal stretch marks, scars and cellulite. Just like your makeup trial, you should schedule a trial of your airbrushed tan and take if for a test run.

Bonus Tip!  Don’t forget  to have your brows done a day or two before your spray tan especially if you have them tinted.  Brow tint can have an adverse reaction to tanning spray (greening) which is VERY DIFFICULT to remove. Lastly, on your wedding day choosing an airbrush foundation is the perfect finishing touch for a picture perfect flawless finish.  Makeup In The 702 uses a custom blended product to match your skin tone that can be applied to cover the neck, décolleté, arms and back and includes a transfer and water resistant, 15+ hours of wear guarantee.  For more on airbrush foundation read Everything You Wanted to Know About Airbrushing
