    A GOOD foundation! I spent so long buying foundations, deciding I didn't like them, buying another one.... Then my friend (who has the best make up case ever) gave me the end bit of her Clarins foundation, and Ive been converted! Bought a bottle in November and still have loads left. Invest in a foundation brush too; you use far less and the coverage is much more even. Fake tan always makes me feel better about myself, the st moritz stuff from home and bargain is brill, a lot of my friends who have trained in beauty say they prefer it to the much more expensive st tropez. You do look very dark when you first put it on... But it washes off to a very nice, even colour! Good luck with the photo shoot

    My skins pretty dry ATM so I tend to chop and change foundations to what isn't drying me out, I'm a bit scared of fake tan cos I'm so pale but I have palmers hint of a tan I might put on, but Would i be best trying to get a mitt? I've never put fake tan on lol but I think people do look better with some on but I'm scared I will go patchy lol do you put it in your face too? Xx

    Definitely get a mitt, home and bargain or b and m usually have them in for about a quid. If you use the st moritz mousse you can control the depth of the colour with how long you leave it in for, I usually leave it on over night, but you could try washing it off after a few hours if you feel it might be a little dark! Whack a load of good moisturiser on the day before, especially on dry areas I do put it on my face, but find it does tend to go a bit patchy there, but I have combination skin, I just make sure I've got some bronzer! Randomly I'm also going for a photo shoot tomorrow with the kids and partner, bit last minute so my version of feeling good is just dying my hair to get rid of the roots

    I'm a pale lady as well And a beauty therapist and makeup artist

    RE Self Tan:
    Personally I'm yet to find one that works for me and doesn't make me look slightly jaundiced. But I'm just unlucky! Considering you're not an experienced self tanner I'd recommend getting a friend who is to do it (if you've the money though go for a spray tan). For the photoshoot you defo don't want streaks!

    If you decide not go down the tanning route for whatever reason and stay au natural then...
    * Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate... Pale skin (and skin that is about to be tanned) loves a good polish. Make it glow baby! Because you have dry skin keep it to max twice a week.
    * Pale skin shows up bruises and marks more easily. You can buy foundation for the body at Mac. It's a light formula but stays on well and doesn't rub off too easily onto clothes etc.

    If you want any tips about anything in particular lemme know!

    What's the photoshoot for btw????

    Hi
    After years of using bleach on my hair it had become pretty bad. I've stared using Lee Stafford's hair growth range and a Tigi leave in conditioner called Let it Be. My hair is now in amazing conditon and incredibly soft.
    Ardell lash growth serum has made my lashes look lovely and long and is pretty cheap to buy.
    The little bubble company do a range of bubblebaths, I like the vanilla biscuit one (drool).

    A Few Tips Regarding Exfoliation!

    * Use exfoliation pads (Boots do a version) to extend the "life" of your leg and underarm wax. Go easy though - you can hurt your skin if you're too vigorous!
    * Gritty areas of skin can affect some people - on the upper arm, stomach, bum, thighs etc. This is due to toxin build up. Exfoliation with a product such as a scrub will help but your main man is the exfoliation brush. DO NOT USE WET! It's never supposed to be used wet! It does exfoliate the skin but it's main job and benefit is to improve circulation to the skin. Always brush in the direction of the heart. Do this every day in the morning and in the evening. This will really help with the elimination of toxins. Epsom salt baths will also help
    * Use an old toothbrush to exfoliate your lips - be sure to use lots of lip balm to restore them!

    I use a good moisturiser on my face, treat myself to an eyebrow threading every month and apply even minimum make up before leaving the house..... I never took pride in how I looked before I lost the weight.
