A Holiday Party Season Must Have

I don’t know about you, but I cannot stand to wear stockings! I know that stockings/pantyhose are still produced because my grandmother wears them and I’ve had the occasion to pick up a pair for my dear granny. While she would never leave the house without the spandex torture device on her legs, the thought of having them on my legs is actually anxiety inducing.

However equally anxiety inducing is the thought of pasty, pale pins that ruin the stunning silhouette of my perfectly picked party dress! Happily, I’ve found a super easy answer to change winter white legs into gorgeous gams. The St. Tropez One Night Only Finishing Gloss ($25) is this holiday party season’s must-have.

One Night Only Finishing Gloss is quick and easy to use. It applies evenly to give an instant touch of bronze and a lasting glossy effect for your ultimate holiday party tan. Available in a universal golden shade, this product works for all skin tones and easily washes off with soap and water. The easy removal is my favorite part!

Application: Apply in circulator motions to buff it into the skin and add a worn in, golden glow without that heavy and greasy feeling.  For a super highlighted look, build up the Finishing Gloss on collarbones, shoulders, shins and even on cheekbones. This gloss is the perfect finish to any look! St. Tropez One Night Only Finishing Gloss is available at Sephora!

The Wonder Woman Toned Tan for Halloween

It’s no surprise that the top trending women’s costume for Halloween 2017 is “Wonder Woman.”  What else do you need alongside your superwoman outfit? Complete your Wonder Woman look with a total bronzed, contoured, toned and concealed tan that will withstand the most active of nights out and hardcore workout routines. It isn’t always the easiest to achieve, but we have some great tips to get that amazing glow!

The Wonder Woman Toned Tan How To:

Products Needed: St. Tropez Body Polisher, St. Tropez Tan Enhancing Body Moisturizer, St. Tropez Tan Applicator Mitt, St. Tropez Self Tan Classic Bronzing Lotion, St. Tropez Everyday Gradual Tan Tinted Body Lotion, and St. Tropez 3-in-1 Bronzing Powder.

PRO TIP - Exfoliating the day before self-tan application will allow your skin to have the perfect Ph. balance for ultimate color development.

The Night Before Halloween: You will need St. Tropez's Tan Applicator Mitt, St. Tropez's Self-tan Classic Bronzing Lotion and tan enhancing body moisturizer. If you exfoliated the day/morning before all you will need to do is remove all products from the skin including deodorant and body lotions.

Face First - Eye serums are fine to wear underneath so treat your skin. Don't Forget To Tie Long Hair Back! Using your bare hands apply one quarter size amount of self-tan lotion and one quarter sized amount of tan enhancing body moisturizer and blend together in the palm of your hand. Apply blended lotion to your face and neck making sure every facial section is covered. This includes over and under the eyes to conceal dark circles and any crow’s feet. Fade down the neck and onto the ear lobes to finish. Stop just before the hairline and then using a tiny amount of moisturizer only blend into hairline. Using a cotton swab wipe the eyebrows, especially if you have fair skin, and any other areas that you do not wish to be tanned. Wash your hands to proceed! Next the Body …

Apply body moisturizer to the whole of the foot, knees, elbows and the whole of the hands not forgetting the backs of the wrists. Apply the tan starting with the legs first. Apply 2 quarter sized amounts of self-tan lotion directly onto the mitt. Start with the lower leg and following a flat hand and a light stroke rule, glide the lotion on, wrap around the front and the back of the lower leg. Stop at the foot and glide over the knee, then with the excess lotion left on the mitt glide over your well-moisturized foot. Make sure to blend in-between your toes. Take a baby wipe and clean the nails. For a perfect super star result take a little St. Tropez body moisturizer and blend up the back of the heels and over any dry problem areas. Reload your tan applicator mitt (2- 3 quarter sized) and glide over the front and back of the thigh and over your bottom cheek! Repeat on the other side. Reload your mitt with about 4 quarter-sized amounts of lotion and glide over your torso and chest. Flip the mitt around the other way so that the white application side is on the back of your hand, we are now tanning the back and this will make your application easy. Reload another 4 quarter sized pumps and bend your back forward. Twist your arm and smooth over the back swapping mitt to the other hand to help when applying to the far side. Finish by blending into the back of the neck.

PRO TIP - Don’t worry if the built in bronzer does not look perfect and even at this stage, as long as the skin is covered with the self-tan lotion the St. Tropez self-tan will always develop perfect and even once the first shower has taken place. So don’t panic Wonder Woman's glow will be 100% even! Lastly we will tan the arms and hands. Again reload the mitt (2 ¼ sized pumps) smooth over the whole arm stopping at the wrist and gliding over the elbow. Then swap mitt hands, reload your and apply to the other arm. Using the excess lotion that is left on the mitt glide over your well moisturized hands making sure you blend in-between the fingers and down the sides of the hands. Wait 30 seconds for the lotion to absorb then swap mitt hands and repeat on the other hand. Lastly take a baby wipe and clean all your nails and palms. Using a little St. Tropez moisturizer blend up the back of your wrist and over your knuckles.

Night Of Halloween: Take a shower to remove the built in bronzer and to reveal a perfect flawless Amazonian glow. Moisturize the whole body using St. Tropez Tan Enhancing Moisturizer (used daily this will maintain your tan for up to 10 days).

Final Skin Finish … Use St. Tropez's Gradual Tan Tinted on exposed key skin areas, and contour lines this will create extra tone, depth of color, illumination, hydration plus extra concealing. Results will be a truly perfect second skin of body armor, fit for our warrior Wonder Woman. You can either apply the product with a foundation brush, then use a tan applicator mitt to blend, apply and blend using a beauty blender or apply with your bare hands just remember to wash hands well afterwards.

PRO TIP - You only have to use small amount of gradual tan tinted to perfect your skin. A little goes along way! Apply the gradual tan tinted to main focal points and blend around the natural contour lines. A layer of St Tropez's Self Tan Classic Bronzing Lotion will naturally make you look more contoured and defined but the extra layer of St Tropez's gradual tan tinted will really take your skin finish to the next level.

Final Touch. Bronzing Powder: Once your hair is complete, your make-up is on and your St Tropez gradual tan tinted has been applied take the St. Tropez 3 in 1 bronzing Powder and SET this amazing wonder woman look. Using a large brush swirl all shades of the pallet together and apply, shade, contour and set where needed. Cheekbones, under jawline, shoulders, collarbone, cleavage, triceps, biceps, inner/outer thigh, shin bone and tops of the feet …
