Want to accessorise your party outfit with a flawless luxe tan this party season? As the spray tanner on Strictly Come Dancing for the past 3 years running – I know how to create gorgeous golden skin that sits well with sparkles, so sit back and enjoy these party tan tips – trust me… I’m your tanner.


For this tan I like to use St. Tropez Self Tan Luxe Dry Oil – not only does this give you shimmer and a golden complexion, but will also infuse your skin with hydration through its rich brazil nut oil properties – perfect for dry winter skin!

TIP 1:

Shake the St. Tropez Self Tan Luxe Dry Oil to activate the ingredients and infuse the party shimmer. Take your tanning mitt, put it on your hand and tap the open oil bottle on the mitt so it begins to absorb product. Don’t be shy with the oil, the more on the mitt the better.


“What I love about the oil is the shimmer – this means you can literally wear the tan out immediately and enjoy that glossy sheen on the skin”.

TIP 2:

Using an Applicator Mitt, sweep over your body starting from your ankles and working your way up, using the shimmer as a guide. Don’t worry if you overlap an area twice, it’ll minimise the chance of streaks.  For your back, turn your mitt back to front on your hand, it’ll make it easier to reach all over.

TIP 3:

Put your hands in a claw and sweep the mitt over, then sweep around the feet in the shape of a sports sock and finish.

TIP 4:

Take a wipe and remove the oil from your palms, nails and in between your fingers. You may want to buff some St.Tropez Tan Enhancing Body Moisturiser into your inner wrist to blend the colour from your palm and forearm. It’s good to note that the tan takes 8-12 hours to fully develop but gives gorgeously golden and hydrated skin that lasts for up to 7 days.

TIP 5:

To complete your luxe party tan, use St. Tropez Self Tan Luxe Facial Oil every other day to give your skin a soft and natural hydrated golden glow.
