Our Top Party Tanning Picks with St.Tropez Expert Jayne

Posted on November 23, 2017 in Tanning Tips & Advice with 0 Comments

Our Tanning Expert, Jayne Cooper, is here to help you find your ultimate party tan!

We are approaching one of my favourite times of the year, Christmas! And along with Christmas comes party season, so here are my favourite picks for the best tans to leave you looking golden across party season and beyond.

St.Tropez Party Tan Legs

It all starts the day before the party, exfoliate the skin using St.Tropez Body Polish to give an even base and remove any last traces of tan. Now it’s time to tan, I love the Express Tan range as they’re so easy to use and you only need to leave them on the skin for 1 – 3 hours depending on the depth of tan you want to achieve.

In the winter season, I usually leave Express on for 1 – 2 hours BUT for a party or event, I’m all about 3 hrs for a deep tan, however if you have a last minute event,  1 hour is all you need for a party perfect finish!

The Express Mist has a 360˚ nozzle making it great for those hard to reach areas. The mist is also good for achieving flawless hands and feet, simply claw the hands and lightly mist over them. So apply your Express Tan and leave for 3 hours for a deep party-worthy bronze and wash off, the tan will continue to develop for 4 – 8 hours after washing off the guide colour.

St.Tropez Party Tan

On the night follow these 3 steps:

  1. Use our Instant Tan range to add definition and contour the body or simply to add extra depth to your tan. I always use our Instant Tan on my legs when I dare to go bare, as it gives me a flawless finish. You can choose either Light/Medium or Medium/Dark, using a Tan Applicator Mitt apply to your chosen areas to sculpt and define.


  1. Use our 3-in-1 Bronzing Powder to highlight and contour the face and body. For your face, use the lightest shade to highlight above the cheeks and deepest shade to contour the jaw line, under the cheek bones. For the body, you can highlight key areas that pop such as the shoulders and collarbones, and you can contour areas you may want to define such as down the inside of the shin or above and below the collarbone. To finish, you can swirl all 3 shades together to lightly dust over the skin to add a touch of bronze.


  1. Instant Tan Finishing Gloss will take any look to that ultimate party glow. Apply the gloss to key areas on show, the shoulders, collarbones and down the centre of the legs to give a beautiful sheen.

You’re now party ready, enjoy,
