I discussed the topic of an airbrush tan in STL for boudoir photography sessions earlier this month. In closing this month, I wanted to discuss the topic one more time. It is Skin Cancer Awareness and Prevention Month after all!
Missy of Just Fakin Tans came to the studio last week for a session and gave me permission to share her photos.
Hair and Makeup
Just Fakin Tans shares a studio space with Chelsy Lyn Beauty in Columbia, IL, so Chelsy actually did Missy’s Hair and Makeup for the session. I very much love the colors, tones, eye makeup, and contour for boudoir photos. The look went very well with Missy’s outfit choices, her skin tone, and her personality!
Chelsy Lyn is a licensed cosmetologist who specializes in bridal and event hair and makeup. She not only does hair and makeup for brides and bridal parties, she also is a hair stylist as well. Follow her on Instagram to see her beautiful work!
By the way, Just Fakin Tans, Chelsy Lyn, and I have a special offer for clients who use all three of us. Contact either Just Fakin Tans or Chelsy to find out all about the offer!
Missy definitely followed my recommendations as far as outfits go and for that I am so thankful! She brought tons of bodysuits, bra and panty sets, and some sweaters/silky shirts to wear, but she also brought some outfits/props to bring out her personality. The pineapples were specifically or a shot she wants to hang in her studio space and I think it totally fits! I love the outcome of this photo!
This flowery and flowy top fit the cream chaise lounge and white rug set so well, especially with her hair and makeup and spray tan. It made for such a soft photo.
Airbrush Tan in STL
Missy had her husband do an airbrush spray tan in STL. Their studio specializes in customized tans for each individual and also includes contouring. We love contouring!
I’ve said it before and I will say it again. I will never recommend tanning in a tanning bed over no tans at all. Skin cancer is real and can be prevented! Don’t increase your chances by laying in a tanning bed. With the availability of spray tans that look natural these days, take advantage of that instead!
Here are some of her recommendations for your airbrush tan in stl.
- The tans are best 2 days prior to your event, photo sessions, plans, etc.
- Shower the morning of or the night before your spray tan with little to no product on skin.
- Exfoliate the day before using an oil-free scrub.
- Shave the day before.
- Come to your appointment with bare skin (i.e: no lotions, oils, deodorant, perfumes, etc.)
- Bring loose, dark clothing for after your spray tan is complete.
