The launch of David Jones Spring/Summer collection celebrates the arrival of new season fashion, with Loving Tan delivering the perfect, natural looking summer glow to complement this season’s most coveted trends. Beauty Vlogger and Tanning Expert Lauren Curtis was backstage in in the lead up to the show and shares with us the secrets to achieving a dewy, bronzed runway look. “Loving Tan was used exclusively to ensure the models had a gorgeous, deep olive colour yet still looked naturally bronzed - a perfect glow is definitely an essential for summer fashion.” Lauren Curtis who is often referred to as the tanning queen, said good preparation is always the key for a flawless, even coverage. “Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate... continue reading

Steal her festival style- Kendall Jenner

By Loving Tan on 27 August 2014 click here to comment

So, the jumpers are coming off and the festivals are coming back! We are so excited so we are going to be doing ‘steal her style’ for the next couple of weeks on some of our favourite fashionistas festival wear! This week, we chose Kendall Jenners Coachella 70’s look and tried to find the closest possible match for you guys! (well, to the best of our ability) For the first look, we tried to match as close as possible! These bell pants are so damn similar and super hot! Because it’s quite warm in Aus we would opt for a shorter sleeve top though! And of course, because you need to be as comfortable as possible when you are on your feet all day- we chos... continue reading

Trends so WRONG they are RIGHT!

By Loving Tan on 20 August 2014 click here to comment

The Fedora It sounds so strange to say that a fedora is back in fashion, because all I can think of is kinda scary looking older guys wearing the good old pinstripe fedora #shudder. But rest assured, they have made a comeback in a positive way and now designers are making large or oversized felt fedoras in so many beautiful colours! They look nothing how I remember them! The birkenstock Does anyone else have old photos of you or your mum wearing these things back in the day? Because I sure do and I never ever... ever thought I’d see the return of the Birkenstocks – They now have been made to look so cute by brands like Senso. We like! The Timberland ... continue reading

The nudie trend

By Loving Tan on 13 August 2014 click here to comment

Nude has been trending for quite a while but we love to share our fav nude looks with you - whether it be for your style, your face or even for your home! We would also like to share our tips on what we have learnt from playing around with nudes! For makeup, nude is a great look because it is subtle and makes you look more.... ahhh – naturally foxy! Haha, but on a serious note you can still really make a ‘wow’ factor with nude makeup, it just won’t be a ‘wow you’re wearing a lot of makeup’ factor. Plus, nude makeup is in now more than ever- it’s all about the shimmery light golden shadows, ‘natural’ lips , light bronzers, peachy cheeks and dewy cheek bones! We are huge fans of this trend! ... continue reading

Picture Perfect Body Makeup VS Bronzing Mousse

By Loving Tan on 16 July 2014 click here to comment

So we are getting an absolutely overwhelming amount of enquiries about our Picture Perfect body makeup from girls worldwide wanting to know the difference between our Picture Perfect and our Mousses, so I thought... time for a blog!! Here is everything (hopefully) that you need to know about the difference between the two: Picture Perfect is makeup that can give you a tanned look - the mousse is a self tanner. Picture Perfect is instant – although the mousse has instant bronzers, the active ingredients are clear and won’t be fully developed until about 8 or so hours. Picture Perfect will set and become waterproof within 60 secs (which even means you can swim in it straight away!) – Even though it is quick dry, with the mousse you can’t get wet for between two to eight hours (depending on which mousse you use) s... continue reading
