How to tan like Gigi
Gigi Hadid has once wowed us on the catwalks once again, storming countless shows at Fashion Month, walking for everyone from Marc Jacobs to Anna Sui. While her outfits and clothes were forever changing, one thing that was consistent was her Californian tan, and celebrity tan expert James Harknett has given Cover Media his insider tips on how to recreate the model’s golden limbs.
“Gigi knows how to show off her assets at all times. She loves to accentuate the natural contours of her body with a L.A. golden glow that looks flawless in colour and black and white photos,” Fake Bake’s Global Creative Consultant at Fake Bake James said.
“To replicate this urban tan with a dewy finish you need to start with a base colour. If the Ibiza colour is starting to fade then reach for a lightweight lotion. The new Fake Bake Flawless Coconut Serum is fast and easy for accurate application. Use a tanning mitt spread evenly over the body. Once developed team the tan with spritz of body oil to enhance the décolletage and collar also keeps the tan hydrated.”
Gigi proves that just because the colder months have hit, it doesn’t mean we should be rocking pasty limbs. As well as Fake Bake’s new offerings, St. Tropez’s annual Christmas gifts have also got us excited.
The tanning giant has launched a beauty cracker as well as an Express Tanning Kit, made up of the brand’s Express Bronzing Moisturiser, Tan Enhancing Body Polish and Applicator Mitt, and Secrets Of A Party Girl, which comprises a St. Tropez Instant Tan Wash Off Face and Body Lotion Light/Medium, Tan Applicator Mitt and Nails inc Gel Effect Nail Polish.
We also love Madame LA LA’s Bronzing Ball to give our faces an instant glow too. The product, a 180 degrees twist-up domed product for a precise glide on instant bronze, achieves contouring, strobing and highlighting in seconds. And for an added bonus, Madam LA LA is one of Gigi’s absolute favourite tan brands. Sign us up!
