It’s no secret that I am an avid fake tan user. However even with my summer spray tanning sessions nothing really compares to that sunshine glow. So how do we keep it through autumn and winter, because with the cold, rain, wind and everything else that those seasons bring, the last thing you want is to be pale. I’ve rounded up some of my recent favourite products and some tips on how I keep my tan throughout those darker months.


My newest obsession has got to be the Anastasia Beverley Hills Glow Kit, I bought this in the US a few months ago, and it has quickly become my saviour. 

A recent re-discovery is the Chanel Soleil Tan Bronzer Universal, not only does it give the perfect tan base and slight contour, it’s so light and airy it almost feels like you have nothing on your face, making it that little bit more natural feeling. It’s also my go to for touching up my tan on my neck/arms if I need to. 

In terms of foundation, even though I said I wanted to try and find alternatives to my Designer foundations, I still think that for me, they will always suit best. I did find that, however, both the L’Oreal infallible foundations are great for mixing in and adding an extra bit of colour, as well as just for wearing on your off days because for £10 and under, you can’t beat them. 


I’ve been getting my HD brows done at Salon Above for over 4 years now, I went every month religiously because I became addicted to how good I felt after having them done. It shaped my face, and made me feel instantly better. Hence, why I’m so obsessed with using their products. 

A well shaped dark brow is the perfect addition to any bronzed glow on your face, and the best products from the HD line in my opinion, would have to be the Browtec and the Brow colour fix. It’s the working girls best friend, quick and easy but leaves you with perfect brows. 

PS – they come in the most amazing colours!


On my hunt for designer dupes I came across the NYX Lip Lingerie liquid lipsticks. A supposed dupe for the Kylie Lip Kits, they have quickly become my new go to over my beloved MAC velvet teddy. 

My favourite nude tones will always look great with a tan and compliment it perfectly. So I would suggest trying a lighter one and building it up to a darker shade, depending on your colouring. 

Let me know what tips and tricks you use to keep your holiday and summer glow into the Autumn months. Also please let me know what you think of my new monthly beauty favourites series. I will continue to try new products with the aim of finding inexpensive dupes, as well as adding to my long list of products that are worth the money. Look out for Septembers beauty favourites to see how I get on.

Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead!
