1. My Sunless Tanning Routine by Jaclyn Hill
If you want to learn how to apply tanner evenly for a natural-looking tan, this tutorial is loaded with great tips and tricks. My biggest takeaways were to prep my skin properly, use body butter to avoid blotchiness, apply tanner with a mitt like the St. Tropez Applicator Mitt, and blend with a brush like the Morphe M442 Buffer Brush.
2. My Fake Tanning Routine! by Lauren Curtis
Lauren shares the same tips as Jaclyn, but I wanted to include this tutorial as she includes a product recommendation that doesn’t smell terrible or fade off in splotches (assuming you take care of your fake tan properly). It’s called the St. Tropez Self Tan Dark Bronzing Mousse, and while it’s expensive, Lauren convinced me it’s worth it!
