Fab ways to fake it - Summer Glow

I love wearing fake tan.  Having that summer kissed golden skin without all the effort of laying in the sun for hours, sweating, ew. 

Self tan can be a bit overwhelming especially if you are a newbie.   You don't want to wake up the next morning to find that the 'golden goddess' look you were going for is actually orange and patchy.   This is why my favourite type of self tanner is gradual, I find that it is easier to guide the colour and you can build it up as much as you like throughout the week. 

My favourite is the Dove one, it leaves a gorj colour and I never find that it goes streaky on my skin.  It is only around the five pounds mark and is often on a half price offer in Boots/ Superdrug.   I also really like the Fake Bake Amplify gradual tan, this one has bit of a higher price tag but if you are use to being put off of fake tan because of the smell - this is the one for you!   It smells like a mixture of vanilla and coconuts and is absolutely divine!  

Although I will always prefer gradual tan, it is no quick fix and means that you always need to plan ahead.  If you have last minute plans and need something to slap'on your legs before you run out the door I recommend the Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs. This product is so easy and quick use.   It leaves a gorgeous airbrushed look on your legs whilst also covering up any imperfections that you may be conscious of.   I always spray it on to a mitt and then apply it to assure that it is streak free and so it doesn't go all over my bathroom walls.    The only down side with this one is that it can rub off on to your clothes so I wouldn't wear anything white.      

I have recently being trying out a new Sleep Mask Tan by James Read after receiving it in a Marks and Sparks Beauty Box. I am rather enjoying it at the moment, the colour isn't to dramatic the morning after.   It is a clear gel like formula that you apply all over the face and leave on over night.   I will keep you all up to date with how I get on with this one.  

Please let me know in the comments below what your favourite fake tan is this summer or every summer!  I would love try some of your recommendations.
