How to Get Kate Middleton's Flawless Tan With St Tropez

With the impending nuptials fast approaching, St.Tropez Skin Finishing Expert for St.Tropez, Nichola Joss shares her step by step secrets below for Kate’s flawless ‘Royal Tan’.

The Royal tan by Nichola Joss, Skin Finishing Expert for St.Tropez.

“Kate has a really gorgeous English rose complexion so with a white gown, we would look at a very light wash of colour, something to make her skin radiant and glowing and ensure she looks flawlessly polished for her big day:

Step 1: Two days before the wedding, I would give Kate an exfoliating lymphatic massage and skin polish using the St Tropez Tan Optimiser Body Polish This will get the circulation going and add energy and a real vitality to the skin.

Step 2: Follow the massage with a drenching of good body butter to ensure no dry patches. This will help the tan sink in and develop really evenly.

Step 3: On the day before I would then use a gentle breath of self tan sprayed all over the body to lift her natural complexion and give a little depth and dimension to the skin.

Step 4: For added radiance and warmth, use a light self tan created especially for the face like the new St Tropez Naturals Radiance Self Tan Face Cream - this product offers a really gentle glow and more importantly it is designed for use on sensitive skin which means even the most delicate complexions can use it. There would be nothing worse than a breakout or reaction the day before the big day!

Step 5: The morning of the event after a bath or shower, apply a skin finishing product. Use one of the St Tropez skin illuminators to make skin look HD ready and super polished. This will allow the light to bounce off the skin adding dimension, lightness and radiance which is going to be really important with all the flashbulbs she is going to have to contend with.

Dannii Minogue - Face of Model Co Fibre Lash Brush On Lashes

This was a natural choice for both parties as Dannii has been a die-hard ModelCo fan for 6 years, and fell in love with FIBRE LASH whilst having it applied professionally for a VIP event. Dannii loves to emphasize her amazing sparkly blue eyes with long luscious lashes, and FIBRE LASH is a product which fits her busy lifestyle, as she can apply it herself with ease.

This year FIBRE LASH will launch into the UK market on a huge scale, rolling-out exclusively into Boots stores nationally from June and online at FIBRE LASH is the ultimate in lash technology - extending & building your lashes to extreme lengths acting like instant fake lashes!

‘‘Dannii was the perfect choice as the Face of FIBRE LASH, she truly encapsulates the ModelCo brand values - a modern woman who is style-savvy yet time-poor, who wants to look & feel her absolute best everyday whilst enjoying a busy lifestyle.

I have no doubt that Dannii’s life experiences will truly resonate with our core audience, there’s no denying how incredibly beautiful she is, yet she’s still completely relatable. Dannii is the epitome of the ModelCo woman, she is super-glamorous and her love of ModelCo products & A-List style credentials will really give the campaign the X-Factor!’’

FIBRE LASH is a must-have in my makeup kit. Lovely super long lashes that are all you -- look super perfect and make you flutter!
