How to apply a fake tan

Hey everyone,

Self tanning is the best and healthiest way to give yourself a little more color in your face. Its very handy for the winter because you dont get much sun and for those days your not looking your best. You've probably heard stories from other girls who applied their self tanner and that it didn't go so well. But with these tips you won't get an orange glow on your face. I can guarantee you it will look just as a real tan! 

How to apply a fake tan

1. Take care of your skin. The first thing that you have to do, even if you don't want to apply self tanner is keeping your skin in a good condition. Eat healthy, eat lots of vegetables, fruit and drink a lot of water to keep your skin hydrated. Wash your skin everyday and put a cream on afterwards. It will prevent you face from getting dry, because when your face gets dry it's easier to get wrinkles. And that's not what you want right!? 

2. Exfoliate. The second thing you have to do is to exfoliate your face and neck. The best time you can apply it is in the evening before you go to bed. I often scrub my face with the scrub from Loreal. It's very good and you can also use it for your body. Which I think is very handy. And than get a good night rest.

3. In the morning wash your face and neck with a good cream cleanser. This will make it easier to apply your face tan. A good cleanser is from Clinique. I use it a lot and it's very good for your skin. 

4. Dry your face. After you washed and cleaned your face, wait about 20 minutes before applying your face tan.

5. Apply your face tan. Apply your tanner on your face, and try to use small amounts. You can apply it just the way you would apply a normal moisturizer on your face. And try to blend it outwards of your face. You don't have to come very close to the eye area. Try to avoid that as much as possible.

6. Wash your hands. Wash your hands with soap so they don't turn orange. And than the only thing you have to do now is waiting. It usually takes up from 5-8 hours before you see the result. But it's definately worth you while. :)

There are so much options on how to wear the print. You can make it more chic and girly, or very bold combined with a pair of trousers. The thing is about making your own style and choose something your comfortable in. Here are some tips to pull of your plaid clothing items.  

3 Ways to wear plaid this fall

3 WAYS TO WEAR PLAID THIS FALL

1. Choose the right colors. Pick colors that look good on you. If more softer colors look good on you, you can choose pastel colors. They are soft and also very girly. And for the warmer colors you can choose dark red and navy. The warmer colors look the best on me. My skin has slightly a undertone to red/brown. Why waste a lot of money on useless clothes in the wrong color? :) If you want to find something in plaid, than here are some things you have to think about when choosing the perfect color.
*First you have to look at your skin tone, your eye color and your hair color
*Secondly look at your imperfections, so when looking for something you can choose a clothing item that covers those things and flatters your other beautiful sides of your body.
*Look in the mirror when you try something on. If you see that your face is not looking good, than it's not the right color.

2. Look at the fit. Tartan shirts can be fitted or loose. You have oversized boyfriend shirts that are loose and casual. You can put the half of your shirt into your pants, so it's has a cool look. It's more for the taller persons I think. Because I try it on once and the shape of the shirt was way to big for me. Im quite small. If your smaller than I suggest to try the slim fit shirts. The fitted plaid shirts contour your body, and flatters your body. Both shirts look good with skinny jeans, and a big or small leather belt.

3. Be girly. Their are so much ways to wear the tartan shirts. You can give it any look that you want. And with adding some jewelry it's the final touch.
*When you wear the shirt, leave some buttons of the shirt open. This way your look with be more feminine and girly. And it looks nice. 
*Pair your shirt with jeans, cute skirts or shorts. 
*Add cute jewelry to your outfit like a cute bracelet, or a cute scarf.



Other tips:


-Plaid is already a bold pattern. When you wear a plaid shirt, don't also wear plaid trousers or a scarf. Try to focus the attention on one thing at a time, other wise it becomes too much.
-Choose the material carefully. Flannel shirts are more for the winter. And materials like cotton are more for the summer.
