How to wear fake tan for your wedding day

One consideration for many brides on their big day is the fact that they are going to want to look their best. This means thinking carefully about their wedding dress, their wedding hair, their make-up and even their skin tone too. Especially when you consider that you are going to be wearing a crisp, white dress on your wedding day.

Whilst some brides are happy to embrace their natural skin tone, others decide to improve their tone with some fake tan. The trouble is, if you are not used to wearing fake tan, then it can be a scary jump to make. To help you to figure out the best way to go, let’s take a look at how you can wear fake tan for your wedding day.

Make sure that you match your skin perfectly

The thing about skin is that everyone’s is different. Which means that you need to pick carefully when it comes to picking fake tan products and shades. It is vital that you pick not only the right shade for your skin, but also pick a finish that is going to be exactly what you are looking for.

Give yourself time to try out products and practice

If you are worried about it matching, then the best thing that you can do is to try out fake tan long before the big day. See which products you like the most and try out applying them, this is the best way to learn whether or not they are going to be right for you, as well as practice applying them before the big day too. You need to make sure that you give yourself time to remove each tan before you move on to the next.

Gradually build up your tan rather than go for an overnight change

One of the worst things that you can do for your fake tan is just apply it a night or two before the wedding, opting for a darker shade. You may find that you wake up only to not feel like yourself and even a little on the silly side. A much better idea is to take the time to gradually build up your tan. This is particularly true if you are naturally pale and just want a subtle look for your wedding day.

Exfoliate and moisturise

Dry, patchy and flaky skin is the mortal enemy of the fake tan. Which means that you need to do your best to take care of your skin long before you apply any fake tan. Make sure that you exfoliate as much as you can and also invest in a good quality moisturiser, as this will mean that your skin is the ideal blank canvas to apply your chosen fake tan to.

As you can see, there are plenty of things to keep in mind when it comes to fake tan. The main one to keep in mind is that, if you feel that you look perfect in your chosen wedding dress, then you don’t have to worry about fake tan. After all, your husband to be chose you the way that you look right now and this means you will be perfect to him when the time comes to say your vows.
