One of the most common questions people ask is ‘How do I properly fake tan my face?’
We all want that natural, sun-kissed glow without having to wear make up all the time, so we thought we’d give you some tips and tricks on how you can achieve this with Crazy Angel!
time to scrub
The day before applying your face tan we advise gently exfoliating the face with an oil-free scrub. Focus on areas that are particularly prone to dryness like the cheeks, nose, and jawline, this will help smooth the skin allowing for an even application.

On the day of applying your tan, it is important to properly wash your face removing any dirt, makeup, and excess oils! Once your face is clean, rinse with cold water to close the pores and reduce any redness that you may have from cleansing. Gently pat dry; try to avoid rubbing as this can irritate the skin.
Moisturising is a key step to ensuring your skin is well hydrated before the application but we don’t want to smother the entire face. Focus predominantly on areas that are prone to dryness like your nose, cheeks, temple area, and neck. Another important area to focus on is your hairline as tan can often gather here - make sure it’s well hydrated as this will result in a more seamless and flawless finish.
Top tip: try to avoid using an oil-based moisturiser as this will prevent your fake tan from developing properly.
applying your tan
When it comes to applying fake tan to your face we recommend using a blending brush like ourCrazy Angel Blending Brushas this is best for achieving that seamless streak-free glow! Add 1-10 drops of our Crazy Angel Tanning Drops to your favourite moisturiser or serum and work it into the skin in circular motions. Remember to apply it to the ears and neck for a more flawless finish. The number of drops you add will determine how deep the tan is so you can go as light or dark as you want, or gradually build up with each use.
