Among the guests embracing the summer vibes were model and broadcaster Daniella Moyles, blogger Louise O’Reilly, stylist Justine King, and models Alannah Beirne and January Winters.
In between the Aussie-inspired cocktails and courses, we talked tanning tips with the guests. Blogger Louise O’Reilly told us that she’s a fan of changing things up depending on where she’s headed.
Mostly through the week I would use the dark mousse, on a weekend or if I knew I was doing a swimwear shoot I would go for Ultra Dark because it just gives that extra bit of a colour and a beautiful radiance. I am a mousse kind of girl, what I like about it is when you apply it you can see exactly where it’s going – there’s no surprises! When you wash it off, it washes off to a beautiful natural tan, and it looks like you’ve just come off a plane.
I’m not usually into instant tan unless it’s an absolute emergency. It’s applied almost like a foundation so it’s that kind of creamy consistency. Great for covering any kind of blemishes, freckles or uneven skin. And I got caught in the rain when I was leaving the house today and it didn’t wash off or run down my top or anything!
I wouldn’t be partial to moisturising beforehand, I would be more inclined to use a moisturising formula like Liquid Gold. It has gorgeous oil in it that glides on to the skin, so there’s no rough patches. I think if you’re too moisturised it doesn’t adhere as well to the skin.
