♥ Fake Tan on Dark Skin Tones


A Guide to Using Fake Tan For Dark Skin Tones

If you have a darker skin tone, using fake tan is probably something that has never even crossed your mind. After all, surely the whole point of tanning products is for pale skinned people to achieve a darker look? Well actually, you might be surprised.

Let’s take a look at why you might decide to use a fake tan, and consider important questions such as how to choose the right shade and prepare your skin before application.

What are the benefits?

Fake tan for dark skin tones provides a flawless base and a smooth but natural complexion. Scars and stretch marks could sometimes be quite apparent on darker skin, so having a subtle cover-up can be a great way to boost your confidence. If you’re planning a holiday or a big night out, it can be just what you need to have you feeling like a million dollars.

It can also be a brilliant addition to your everyday make-up routine. By spending just ten minutes a few times a week applying your fake tan, you can wake up to brighter skin every morning. You could be ready to face the world in no time at all, with just a little mascara and lipstick.

How do I choose the right shade?

If you’re looking for a clearer complexion from your tanning product, look for a shade that is as close as possible to your own skin tone. This will allow you to use it on just certain areas of your body without looking mismatched! If you do want to add a little darkness to your skin, only go a shade or two darker. Anything more, and you run the risk of looking unnatural.

How should I prepare my skin before application?

When it comes to fake tan for dark skin tones, preparation is absolute key. For the best results, shave and exfoliate the day before you plan to apply your product, and cover yourself with plenty of moisturiser. As with all things, practice makes perfect! It might take you a few applications to get the hang of it, but after a while, it’ll become just another part of your beauty routine.

  1. Love being tanned, but it has to be a 'real' tan and not from a bottle. Cause I smell it on my skin everywhere I go, and after showering it's all gone. When it's rainy, you get weird spots on your face. So I just keep hoping that one day I'll wake up with a beautiful tan, without visiting the solarium or using tanning spray.
    Your skin looks gorgeous by the way I don't think you need it.
    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Hmm, I personally would not use a fake tan weekly or even monthly but I would certainly like to try it one day-just for the "glowy" look it would probably give...I find that a really good bronzer can do just about the same thing..especially during the winter.

  4. I use to wear fake tan on my legs and arms for nights out, I use to go about two possibly three shades darker and it made a difference. It annoyed me when people would say 'you're mixed you don't need it'... brown still bronzes peeps :)

  7. DAVID HARROW says"Tear Trough is a fabulous treatment which can vanish bags and darkness and restore lost volumization that occurs with aging. It's a common problematic area for women, as some days eyes look more puffy and saggy than others. Add late nights into the mix and you have under eyes areas that are rapidly declining. My tear trough treatment can fix this in less than 20 minutes with instantly visible results. Women who have not had this treatment should come to see us on Harley Street as they are really missing out on regaining beautiful eyes.continue reading this post.and get more information about Tear trough Treatment.
