With the vacation season finally upon us it is time to bare all. No one wants to be the palest person on the beach; a flattering bikini and a golden glow are key to feeling confident. See my tips on how to look like a Bronzed Goddess this summertime…


Finding a bikini to flatter your body can be difficult, which is why I love swimwear by Charlie. Celebrity fan’s Rhianna and Anja Rubik both love Matthew Zink’s colorful patterns and complimentary shapes. You can mix and match swimwear pieces with their super gorgeous resort wear making them perfect for both beach and down time on your holiday.

Beauty Tip

For an even coverage and to protect your hands when applying self-tan try using a He-Shi’s Tanning Mitt


Holiday skin

For a long lasting effortless glow I love Madame LA LA’s Self Tan. It contains coco water to help hydrate the skin. Added Vitamin A antioxidant and skin-cell regulator will ensure a flawless transition between your fake and real tan; the results are so natural you will look like you have spent two weeks on the beach.

To enhance your tan on a summer’s evening try Clarin’s Splendours Shimmer Body Oil. It contains fine golden pearls, which will illuminate holiday skin while its blend of essential oils leave you feeling nourished and hydrated after a day in the sun.

For a last minute golden finish try He-Shi’s Rapid 1 Hour Liquid Tan. This self-tan contains Aloe Vera and Vitamins A&E to moisturise along side its super quick results; making it the perfect multitasker for those who are on the go!
