Option #1 - find the BEST experienced airbrush tan artist in town and book her now! Plan on visiting her twice in same week as your prom: 4 days prior to prom to have her airbrush tan just the white part of the ta
Somewhere by now (probably at some hole-in-the-wall dive bar full of frat guys) you’ve seen a muscle tee plastered with the saying “Sun’s out, gun’s out!” Well, we’re not saying you should wear this tank yourself, but when it’s warm outside, it does make sense to bare arms. If you’re planning to wear a tank top or sleeveless dress but feel like you may have skipped the gym a few too many times, we’ve got just the fix.

Do’s & Don’ts of eyelash extensions, general rules to follow when you get them for the first time and tricks we’ve learned along the way with personal experience with them (hope you find this helpful). THE DO’S:
-Only use products that are oil-free. That means face wash, makeup removers, moisturizer, eye cream, etc.

So you just got a fresh spray tan two days ago and the spray tan tech promised you that today (day 2) would be the darkest and prettiest day of your tan ..... but you can make an argument of something completely the opposite!! If you have experienced this during the 5-7 days of your spray tan, I feel your frustration!! This is actually my leg on day 4 .... and I AM the spray tanner!!

Island Glow recommends Dawn (only the blue) Liquid Soap. Clean your mitt after each use to prevent nasty bacteria build up. Bacteria grows in moist places and can cause clogged pores, acne, breakouts and nasty fungus growth on skin.
How to clean:
1. Wet mitt with warm water
2. Squirt Dawn (blue) liquid soap to clean thoroughly
3. Rinse soap out until water runs clear
4. Set up (I use my self tanning bottle as the stand) to air dry
5. You can reuse in 24hrs #selftan
