Beach Bronze Beauty Tips from iTAN Models

Posted on October 10th, 2015

Bronzed beauties want to keep their healthy sun-kissed glow throughout all four seasons, not just summer. iTAN is excited for fall, but we all need an arsenal of beach-bronze beauty tips to help us stay golden into the cooler months. From spray tanning tips to makeup looks, the 2015 iTAN Models Lindsey Harrington and Clarissa Lovell gave us the skinny on maintaining their golden glow year round.

Here’s how they accomplish their best fall looks:

1. What iTAN services do you use to keep your sun-kissed glow well into the fall?
Lindsey: During the fall and before any photo shoot, I like to get a light Mystic spray tan to keep my summer glow looking natural. I also like to use a Sun Pro sunbed once every couple of weeks.
Clarissa: I LOVE to spray tan, whether it’s Mystic or Versa! I don’t always have enough time to use sunbeds, so it’s a great way to keep my glow during the fall. And, it’s quick and easy!

2. What iTAN products do you use to warm up your skin in the fall?
Lindsey: I like to use the accelerators when getting my Mystic spray tans, especially if I plan on showering within the next six hours. The accelerator helps speed up the tan development time on your skin. I also like to use Natural Black Bronzer by JWOWW prior to a sunbed session.
Clarissa: Australian Gold is my favorite line of products. Everything they have smells great, leaves my skin soft and keeps me bronze. Plus, they are all reasonably priced, so you can mix and match!

3. Do you have any makeup tips to make your skin glow?
Lindsey: I love dewy, bronzed makeup! To achieve this look, it’s important to moisturize and use bronzer and illuminator. I use Nars Highlighting Blush in Albatross and bareMinerals READY Bronzer in The High Dive to achieve this look.
Clarissa: Water! Being hydrated is the best thing you can do for your skin to keep it healthy and radiant. I also like to wear some bronzer during the day as well to keep the glow!

4. What colors do you use in the fall to make your skin look golden?
Lindsey: My Mystic tans really help keep my skin looking golden. I also use peachy blushes and lots of bronzer on places that the sun would naturally tan.
Clarissa: I like to use gold and copper eyeshadows to bring out the brown in my eyes, as well as wine colors on my lips to enhance the color of my skin. I try to wear clothing that compliments my shape and skin tone as well, such as olive greens, white or black.

5. Why do you think it’s important to maintain a healthy glow year round?
Lindsey: I think it’s super important to take care of your skin because it’s the biggest organ you have. I recommend using lots of lotion and exfoliating your skin to keep it looking and feeling healthy all year. I also think that having a healthy glow year round makes you appreciate your skin and helps you feel more confident.
Clarissa: I think maintaining a healthy glow boosts confidence and gives the appearance of a healthy lifestyle! They are both great tools to have year round, especially in San Diego where it is always bikini season.
