Happy Monday everyone and hello October,

Seeing as autumn is officially in the air (we’re actually excited about it!), faking a healthy sunkissed glow becomes one of the main priorities within our beauty regimes. Even though it’s cold and grey outside, it doesn’t mean are skin needs to be dull too, right?

Facial tanners have become one of my beauty staples, particularly over the past year. There’s just something so nice about waking up and having a healthy glow to your face.

This make up Monday we’re sharing 5 tanning products to your face that we’ve tried and tested and would definitely recommend.

Have you tried any of these before? And if not, which other products would you recommend? We’d love to know!


– TAN-LUXE ‘THE FACE’ ILLUMINATING SELF-TAN DROPS – This is like magic in a bottle. It’s become my holy grail face tan over the past year – everyone should try this. It’s so easy to use too – I like to add 2-3 drops to my moisturiser or serum and it gives you a nice healthy looking glow. Just don’t forget to wash your hands after applying! 😉 Buy it here


– JAMES READ SLEEP MASK TAN FACE – This is a gorgeous product to use and best of all it has an anti-ageing formula made up of hyaluronic acid, aloe vera and vitamin E. I like to wear this over a few nights in a row if I want to be slightly more bronzed but if you just want a subtle glow, using this once in a while is perfect. It’s colourless once applied too so you don’t have to worry about tan stains on your pillows. Happy days! Buy it here


– ST TROPEZ SELF TAN PURITY FACE MIST – Slightly different to your typical creams and serums, this mist is not only really refreshing on your skin, it can be spritzed over a bare face or even over your make up once it’s done (and as often as you like!) It smells divine too, which is a plus! We’ve tried and tested this over the summer and we really liked it. Buy it here


– VITA LIBERATA SELF TANNING NIGHT MOISTURE MASK – This is another mask style of product that you apply at night. Once your face is cleansed, just apply to your face – it’s really hydrating on the skin so feels really nice and luxurious too. Buy it here


– CHARLOTTE TILBURY OVERNIGHT BRONZE & GLOW MASK – This mask is also one of our faves, we’d recommend building it up over a couple of nights if you prefer a more intense sun kissed effect. It’s also worth remembering to make sure to blend this into your hairline to make your glow look more natural. Buy it here
