Above all, test out plenty of fake tans to find the one that works for
There are foam tans: I find these hard to use because they dry quicker so you need to be quick with your application, but that’s the upside of them as you can get dressed almost instantly.
There are tinted ones: these are great because you can see if you’ve gone wrong before it dries, but are bad as they get on your clothes.
You’ve got sprays, these are easy to use but still need rubbing in as streaking will occur if you rely on their mechanism entirely.
So forget being interesting, be tanned and sexy instead.
