L'Oreal Sublime Bronze Self Tanning Tutorial

Hey girlies!
In my mid-summer haul post, I purchased L'oreal's Sublime Bronze Self Tanner. I do far have used this product twice on my face and have fallen in love with it!

This product says that it will leave you with a radiant and sun kissed glow with a 100% natural looking tan gradually. I don't want to start doing a review on this product quite yet, but I do want to explain how I applied this to my body.

For this tutorial I am going to show you how I apply this to the parts of my arms that did not get tanned by the sun.
This self tanner is colored, so you can see where you applied it, as well as it will give you an instant tan. However, this self tanner is also a luminous one so it leave a whole bunch of tiny glitters on your body.

Since I am a night showerer I will apply this tanner at night so there will be time to let it develop as well as for some of the glitters to rub off.

**This tanner will develop more over time so do not apply a bunch your first time to avoid looking orange.

To apply this, I first took a little amount into my palm or finger tips. I then will take a little amount with my other hand to apply this to my body.

Evenly run this into your skin, adding more tanner where you might need it. You will start seeing some color and glitter on your skin.

Once you have applied this to the area where you need the tanner, IMMEDIATELY once you are done to avoid orange and streaky hands. I have learned this from experience, trust me do not miss this step.

When I self tanned my face, I woke up in the morning with some streaks and a pretty tanned face. What I did to get a even looking tan, I started by lightly washing my face and as I did I would rub the tanner that begin to wash off back into my skin to even the tan. After padding my face dry I noticed the tan to be more even.

When I apply makeup to my face, I apply some concealer to my dark circles and any imperfections or blemishes I may have. I then apply a thin layer of foundation over my skin to even it out even more, then I will apply some bronzer and blush, then I will carry on with the rest of my makeup.

So far I am really liking this self tanner, and I defiantly will have a review on this in the near future.

My family and I am heading out to the lake for the next week, so I will still try to post as much as possible!
Hope you girls had a great weekend!
