Vita Liberata’s Top Tanning Tips

Question: Why did you choose to work for Vita Liberata?
Answer:

I’ve always been so passionate about working within the beauty industry.  The first thing that attracted me to Vita Liberata was the fact that it was an organic and non-toxic tanning brand… finally!

After trying Vita Liberata, seeing how natural the colour was, and how perfectly the tan faded, I fell in love and knew I had to be a part of the brand!

Question: What’s the most important tanning secret you could give us?
Answer:

Always apply product to really clean, exfoliated skin – never miss this step, it makes such a huge difference to the result and durability of your tan!

I also see so many people apply moisturiser before tanning. Avoid doing so as it can interfere with the tanning ingredients and leave an uneven tan.

Question: Do you have any tips for tanning novices?
Answer:

If you are tanning first timer always opt for a tinted tan like our phenomenal 2-3 Week Tan as you can see exactly where you have applied the product on your skin – this helps ensure a really even result!

Also, make sure you always use a mitt for a flawless finish and to protect your hands.

Question: What is the one tanning item you cannot live without?
Answer:

I’m obsessed with applying our products with a large makeup brush especially when skin finishing – doing so creates a flawless, airbrushed finish!

Question: What is your favourite beauty trend of the season?
Answer:

Obviously it has to be a glowing complexion… I love to mix a dollop of Body Blur HD Skin Finish into my foundation for a dewy, bronzed look to my make up!

Question: Can you share a favourite fashion week memory?
Answer:

There’s nothing like the buzz of seeing a live fashion show and seeing the glow of skin on the catwalk! It’s great to get beauty inspiration straight off the runway that I can incorporate into my work.

Question: What tanning faux pas do you see too often?
Answer:

Orange hands! When too much tan has been applied towards the wrist and knuckles, it’s not a good look.

This is so easy to avoid using our damp cloth routine too; simply take a damp cloth or wet wipe to these areas and blend after application.

Question: If you had to pick one item from your collection what would it be and why?
Answer:

It would have to be Body Blur HD Skin Finish, it covers a multitude of sins and leaves you looking absolutely flawless! It’s a bronze body makeup that reflects the light and covers imperfections for an airbrushed finish.
