During and after your SiennaX spray tan

On The Day Of Your Spray Tan

  • On the day of your tan application do not use any products if you can help it such as, oils, moisturisers and make-up, deodorant or perfume /after shaves. If they are not properly removed the spray tan can look streaky, blotchy unnatural, unevenly colored and not to the spray tans fullest looking potential
  • Please make sure though you do not have a shower on the day before your appointment as skin pores will be open and don’t want brown filled pores!
  • Shave and exfoliate 24-48 hours hours before the appointment as this will also open your pores.
  • Remove jewellery.
  • Pull hair up and away from face and neck with a hair tie of some sort.

After Your Tan

  • Plan ahead before your appointment by wearing loose, dark clothing and flip-flops or loose fitting shoes. Tight clothes and underwear can leave marks and ruin your tan.
  • Do not exercise or swim during the development time.
  • If you’re not showering until the morning then wear loose gloves or socks in bed to prevent hands accidently touching your body during your sleep and leaving hand marks on your beautiful tan.
  • Do not shower or bathe for the development period (8-10 hours) after your tan.
  • Use a light body wash like Sienna X Balance Body wash, it’s so mild and gentle that it won’t strip your colour and is kind enough to use on your face.
  • Pat dry after showering- not not rub dry

Don’t Forget

  • When you take a shower or a bath you will probably see some colour wash off. Don’t worry. This is quite normal as it is 
only the colour guide that the spray tan technician uses when the tan is applied.
  • A sunless tan can begin to fade over time as the skin’s natural cells begin to flake off and regenerate. The more moisture in your skin, the longer your tan will last and the more natural it will appear. Hydrate the skin with quality moisturizers and drink plenty of water.
  • Moisture Mositure Mositure after you tan to extend your golden glow
  • Never exfoliate immediately after a spray tan. 
 The skin only goes scaley when you don’t moisturise regularly twice a day after your spray tan.
  • Once they see the tan start to fade/go patchy usually after a good 5 – 7 days, to gently exfoliate every day. This should help the tan fade more evenly and avoid the scaly look that it can give the skin and always try to keep your skin moisturised.
  • Use Sienna X products from the prolong range to extend the life of your tan and keep your gorgeous glow.
  • Avoid long hot baths and showers as these speed up exfoliation.
  • Cholorinated pools /Hot Tubs or sea water as these can reduce your tan. Applying a waterproof sunscreen prior to subemerging can reduce the fading process.

Top 10 tips for preparing for your SiennaX spray tan


Achieving a beautiful sunless tan without mistakes is easy when your skin is properly prepared for the treatment. Your spray tanning appointment itself is quick and can be completed in as little as ten minutes which allows you the freedom to prep your skin to suit your schedule. Preparations can be done in advance and will smooth out the skin to give the best base for your spray tanning product. So to achieve a flawless, natural tan by following these simple 10 tips.

1. Buff away dry skin before treatment with a gentle natural exfoliator. This will make your tan last much longer by revealing new skin.

2. Wax at least 24 hours before treatment, ideally 48 hours before to allow the pores to close.

3. Shave at least 24 hours before treatment and apply a rich moisturiser to replenish dry skin.

4. Moisturise generously the day before, ideally overnight. This will prevent dryness and provide the perfect tanning base.

5. Rinse off any products, perfume, oils, moisturisers and make up before attending your spray tanning appointment.

6. Dark, loose cotton and jersey fabrics and dark underwear without tight waistbands are ideal to wear before and after your spray tan. Some of the guide colour can be easily removed by tight fitting clothing so it is best to keep clothing loose.

7. If you are new to spray tanning, a patch test before your treatment is always recommended to ensure the tanning formula is suitable for your skin.

8. Take some hair ties along with you if you have long hair to keep the back of your neck and shoulders free.

9. If you have to run any errands after your spray tan, you can take deodorant to apply afterwards once your tan has set.

10. Applying nail polish to fingers and toes will help to protect the nails from any discolouration from the tanning product.

If it is your first time receiving a spray tan it is advisable to have a patch test done before your treatment. However, it is very rare for the skin to have any adverse reactions to spray tan formulas as the active chemical ingredient works by reacting with naturally occurring amino acids in the skin.

After following these useful tips you are ready to get your spray tan to achieve the best results.


There is a range of products which SiennaX have to help in preparation and to prolong, these products will be tried and tested and if they are up to scratch, I will begin to stock them and tell you what I think. Have you used SiennaX products before?

Sienna X spray tan fun!


This morning i went on my merry way to London. Where yes, as you can guess from the title, I learnt how to spray tan. It was such a good day and I learnt so much. I never knew that spray tanning was so interesting and fun! I have caught the bug and now not sure if I can stop 🙂

The most interesting thing I found was that the tan is not a colour, the colour will only develop through a natural reaction to the way you naturally tan in the sun. So if you use the same strength solution on 50 people the colour will not be the same from person to person. Interesting, I no! I always thought spray tans = the tangoed look. Shame on me.

Sienna x gives a gorgeous, natural looking tan for up to 7 days, without any danger of skin damage. It’s quick, its safe and so natural looking. Nobody will even know 😉


I hope to see some of you soon when I bring this service to you guys. Soon everyone will be tanned 😉


Happy 40th Kate Moss!

I don’t know about you guys but this lovely lady definitely deserves a mahousive HAPPYYYY BIRRTHDAYYY from all of us. Kate Moss turned 40 last week (16th January) and isn’t she gorgeous? This women is not only extremely stunning but also an inspiration, through everything Kate has managed to keep her career moving for an amazing span of years. Therefore I now name her a ‘superdupermodel’. Kate decided to celebrate her birthday with a four day bender including a festival in her garden (as you do). Florence and the Machine, Mark Ronson, amongst others all took the stage to perform for her and her guests. Even Noel Gallagher serenaded her, now that’s something I would love to see.

To celebrate turning the big 4-0, this beautiful and sexy mother of one still has got it as she flaunts her ‘thang’ for Playboys 60th anniversary. Hubba Hubba 😛


I just felt this needed to be done and also me and my friends have all been joking about turning 30 recently as everyone is getting another year closer. Don’t get me wrong I am only 22 but still… So life doesn’t stop at 30, apparently it just keeps getting better (phewww)

Happy birthday Kate Moss

Toodles 🙂

MAC AW13 masterclass (& shopping oops)

So AW13 is upon us and I went on a jolly journey to London Chelsea to visit the mac store on kings street (Unfortunately not seeing any of the made in Chelsea cast). The only reason I was able to do this was through an opportunity with DFMA. We was shown the look below from London fashion week, then used the rest of the time to network and go SHOPPING!!



So… I went shopping (naughty) but… I personally don’t call it shopping, it’s purchasing essentials that will further your career and got a hefty discount (Ehh). Mainly in my head at the time was what do I need to add to my bridal makeup kit? My first thought was a good sheer foundation which is also buildable and of course MAC face & body is always a good option for a natural look. I got the lightest in N1 and a darker in N9, then I am prepared for porcelain to dark skin and can mix them together with my already existing foundation to get correct colours for different skin tones.

Tip- One of the lovely helpful ladies did suggest to pair up with another friend, then you can purchase a couple colours each and split them into empty bottles to get more colours as the 120ml bottles last for yonks.


As I chose a light foundation, I picked up a MAC Pro Longwear concealer in NC25 as I already have a derma blend palette for darker skin tones. Pro Longwear is a lot higher coverage for any ‘troubled’ areas my clients may have.


MAC fix+ is spoken about a lot on YouTube that I have seen and always looked so, of course the minerals in it are good for your skin as well! but it’s so refreshing And there is nothing worse then when you have blow dried hair and the feel for the client when you put makeup on stuffy skin.


MAC blush in harmony I have been told by Lyndsey Harrison is perfect for contouring on a bride for a natural look as it’s completely matte and is an orange tangoed bronzer 🙂 Anyway it was actually used in the tutorial today so that was it, SOLD! (How annoying is it that the packaging is upside down in the photo above!)


 MAC pigment in Vanilla is a gorgeous highlighter, I used when I was at DFMA, so that was a must 😛


I have so many different colour eyeshadows but in my MAC palettes I have neutrals, greens, purples, so thought I would go for more red/pink colours, then I can be a little more romantical for people. I had to go for a more neutral ‘all that glitters’, then the middle shade is called ‘paradisco’ and then the darkest which will be a lovely crease colour is ‘coppering’. 


Lipsticks are the one thing I can’t get really carried away with, which is strange considering I tend to wear a neutral lip, does not stop me buying every colour in the rainbow! So I went with the classics, MAC matte lipstick in Russian red was used in the tutorial so of course twisted my arm, MAC matte lipstick in lady danger just jumped out at me it’s a brighter red but more orangey so will look lovely with ladies with blue eyes. Then there is the neutrals, I got MAC cremesheen lipstick in pure zen and MAC glaze lipstick in hue, these will look lovely on the natural brides I was thinking.





Day 2- Smokey eye

I had a fabaroo day today, I do enjoy a good smokey eye, and i love trying out different colours. So  Day 2 is all about the smokey eye With Davinia again.

1) cleanse

2) toner- a nice little spruce up

We will apply the foundation after we have done the eyes as it is highly likely we will get a lot of fall down.

3) take a brow pencil and draw onto the back of your hand, use it as a gel with an angle brush.

4) start in the middle of the brow to add depth, then just use to fill in.

5) check the brows are the same, if not use a pencil to even them out.

6) using black kohl eyeliner, you lift up from underneath the eyebrow with your thumb to make the eyelid tight, this allows you to get the black eyeliner all over the eyelid and fill the flesh between the lashes.
7) with the eye open mark out just over the socket line so you know where to fill to. This stops the eyebrow from protruding.
8) eyeliner also needs to be pushed into the lower line and under the eye.
9) take a medium fluffy brush and blend out the edges of the liner. Make sure you take off any access liner on the back of your hand throughout so you don’t just spread the black.
10) choose a smokey grey shadow and a shadow brush and push the shadow onto the liner, this will pack on and stick to the base.
11) in a lighter grey, use a fluffy brush to blend over the whole eye and blend out any lines.
12) take a smudge brush to blend under the eye and the outer corner.
13) using a small lip brush, wet with a little water as this will make it easier to pick up glitter and place a little in the centre of he lower lash line. This adds a shine whenever the client blinks.
14) clean off any drop down with toner.

masking tape is a really good way to remove any glitter that has fallen.

15) clean up the inner corner of the eye with a q-tip, before highlighting. Then highlight underneath the eyebrows to pop the brow bone.
16) either using black eyeliner, or a coloured eyeliner for a pop of colour, fill in the waterline.

17) use a full coverage foundation and make sure you run the brush over the lips to knock back the colour. If the hair is tied back then go over the ears as well, the last thing you want is totally different coloured ears that show up.
18) conceal under the eyes with a fluffy brush, take off the majority of product on the back of your hand so it’s just being buffed in.

take a step back and check the eyebrows, if they are looking lost as it is a heavy eye look add to them.

19) to powder into place use a fan brush.
20) apply blush to only the apple of the cheeks and use a smaller fluffy brush for more accuracy.
21) a highlighter for the cheek bones, Mac stardust is a good product, use a large fluffy brush to.

glitter or shimmer looks like sweat on TV

22) we just want to give the lips a little stain, so use a beige colour with a lip brush to apply, then tap in with a finger to make softer.

Finishing touches
23) trim lashes if they need to be, out the glue on the back if your hand to get tacky, then apply to the lashes and place along the lash line.
24) apply mascara to the top and bottom lashes…

… And wallah!!




I you have never noticed how purple eyeshadows bring out green eyes you can see in these photos.
