Bridal Beauty | St Tropez

Look, it can be a risky move but with the right tools it is possible to give yourself a Bali holiday glow without a trip to Bali or a spray tanner. Off the bat, if you love yourself a hardcore tan, maybe your wedding day isn’t the best time for a DIY job. A natural, subtle glow is on the other hand, totally doable yourself.

With one product sold every 15 seconds, St Tropez knows tan. They offer a range of shades and formulas to ensure every skin tone can achieve their natural tan without having to even go outside. The Classic Bronzing Mousse is definitely your guy for a natural hint of colour that applies like a breeze. Being a fluffy mousse, it blends into the skin like a dream and dries almost instantly. No walking around the house like a zombie in your knickers until you’re dry. After five days, the Classic Bronzing Mousse begins to wear off evenly. The days of going patchy until your tan will scrub off are gone.


Once you find your match made in tan heaven, it’s all about prep and application. St Tropez has some golden rules (ha!) to ensure you walk down the aisle glowing, no streaks allowed.

  • “Quite naturally, dry skin will suck up any moisture it’s exposed to. This includes self tanning lotion. Unfortunately, this will likely produce a streaky or blotchy tan. Using a water-based, gentle body scrub prior to self-tanning will remove dead skin cells from the skin’s surface. This will allow the self-tanning lotion to adhere directly to the skin, and provide an even complexion.”
  • “When it comes to self tanning, areas of the body that curve are difficult to get right. Areas around the eyes, mouth, and nose can end up looking too dark if extra care isn’t taken. Use a lighter stroke when applying self-tanner to these areas of the body. If you’re not confident in your application abilities, then you can apply a thin layer of lotion to these areas. The lotion will prevent some of the excess tanner from adhering to the skin.”
  • “When applying self-tanners, most people use their bare hands. While the tanning product will adhere to their arms and legs, it will also remain on their palms. This can be avoided through the use of a tanning mitt. Mitts like the St Tropez Tan Applicator Mitt will protect your hands from the tanning actives in your tanning product. However, they also enable you to apply self-tanner evenly.”
