Fake Tan Tip 5: Dab Vaseline on eyebrows and hair line
The last thing you want to do when fake tanning your face is end up with an uneven colour and a horrible tide mark by your hairline and eyebrows. Dotting a small amount of Vaseline along your brows and next to your hair line will help you tan the face with caution, as dabbing the jelly means that any slip of the hand when applying will prevent dodgy marks appearing in these areas.
James Harknett says: ‘Many ‘tans in cans’ contain alcohol to help the spray dry faster on the skin so moisturise your face thoroughly first to prevent it dehydrating. Be careful not to hold the can too close; around 20cm from the face is sufficient, and spray downwards.
‘If you find self-tan sits in your pores, place a cold damp flannel over the face for a few minutes to help shrink them.’
