The PERFECT things to do before you spray tan!

Everyone has the questions. What do I do before? What should I avoid doing before? I want to answer all of those questions and MORE, and provide you with all of the recourses needed for a PERFECT tan!

Many clients first questions involve waxing, and shaving. What in the heck do I do with all this hair? Personally, I will ALWAYS choose to wax over shaving, because when waxing you are starting with an extremely clean canvas. If you choose to wax be sure to do so at least 48 hours before your appointment to give your pores enough time to close. ( This includes brow waxing!)

For all of your waxing, and brow needs Brows by Wink is INCREDIBLE, and conveniently located next to our Windermere Studio.

Next Lashes! Always get your spray BEFORE your lash extension appointment, if you get it after that it has the possibility of causing the glue to break down, resulting in a loss of lash extensions that your lash artist worked so hard to put on. If living locally in the Orlando area we Recommend to use Bella Lash Lounge. Bella Lash Lounge is also located conveniently next to our Windermere Studio.

To book call 407-909-0775 or visit www.bellalashlounge.com.

Be sure to schedule all nail appointments, pedicures, and massages BEFORE your spray.

Exfoliate your body using our amazing exfoliating mitt by Dermasuri 24 hours before your Spray Tan, if you skipped the wax this is when you should also shave.

Immediately before getting sprayed, you will want to make sure your skin is clean of all oils, lotions, and deodorant.

Now you are ready for your Brushed Artistry Spray Tan!

New Year, New Tan Routine

spray-tan-vs-sun-tan-is-tanning-safe-at-all

I feel like this is the perfect time to talk about the ever so dangerous topic of Skin Cancer. An estimated 9,940 people died of melanoma in 2015. That is a pretty big number. As we know many of these cases could not have been avoided, due to lack of knowledge and studies about the subject. Although there could have been a few in there that could have been avoided, we will never know as it is just a statistic. Science has proven that overexposure to UV rays produces skin cancer in your cells. This does not mean you have to hide under an umbrella in a hazmat suit walking around all day outside. All this means is that you should be aware of the weather, and the activities that you are participating in. I ALWAYS wear sunscreen on my face. Every day, because this woman does NOT want wrinkles. That’s the other terrible thing about baking in the sun… the wrinkles.

Another important thing that EVERYONE needs to do, is to be checked regularly by a dermatologist. If you catch the precancerous cells early it will be much easier to treat. So go get tested!

Always remember though, just because you can’t bake in the sun does NOT mean you cannot be tan. I am here for all of your tanning needs, it requires no sweating, no sunburns, and no skin cancer. The answer is Spray Tanning, and I come right to you. The color always looks natural and fades evenly as a normal man would. Call me anytime if you are in Orlando for an Appointment at 321-276-0863, or e-mail me at info@brushedartistry.com if you are interested in purchasing a tan can (a great at home alternative.)

Hope everyone has a nice, and healthy new year!

How to keep your glow this holiday season!

Happy Holidays from Brushed Artistry

Holiday parties, events, and photos are soon approaching. If you are anything like me, I inhaled quite a few extra calories already over this past Thanksgiving weekend. From all the deserts, turkey, stuffing, potatoes, and so many more mouth-watering foods I just could not resist! Now I am right back into the busy holiday season, and just like many of you others out there the gym is the last place I have time to get to. Thankfully, there is a resolution to this problem. It is temporary, and by no means am I saying to drop your workout habits BUT if you get a pinch, and need that extra boost of color (and confidence) not only will a spray tan give you a slimmer appearance, there is also the magic of contouring.

To sum up contouring, I can give you the illusion that you went to the gym when well… you really did not. Nobody has to know that though, it will be our little secret 😉

Be sure to book ahead for any special events you have throughout the month. It is best to get the spray a day or two before the event. We do book up quickly so reserve your spot.

Also if you are someone who is loving your spray tans, and have a friend that you know would love them as well consider a Brushed Artistry gift certificate. The gift of an at home spray tan is one of the most original, luxurious gifts that they will never expect, but absolutely love. Ask your Spray Tan Artist about these at your next appointment.

To keep a consistent color during these colder months we recommend to book weekly or bi-weekly depending on your skin. Always be sure to exfoliate the old tan off completely before getting a new one. Our Dermasuri product works GREAT for this.

Let one of your errands come to you this Holiday season, and get your Spray Tan at home by the #1 Spray Tanning Company in Central Florida.

Happy Holidays!

In a pinch for time? Use the Rapid Glow!

Want a Spray Tan, but do not have the time to sit around to wait for it to develop? Brushed Artistry offers a Rapid Tan! With a regular spray tan, you have to wait at least 8 hours to shower. With the Rapid, you can shower in as little as 2 hours depending on the darkness of the tan that you would like! This is a fantastic option for last minute tans, rainy days, last minute plans, and tanning emergencies. You know that 5-hour warning before you are told you have an event? We got you girls (or guys)! Our solution will leave your skin looking naturally bronzed. ALWAYS remember with these kinds of tans to keep an eye on the time.

The longer the solution is on your skin, the darker the tan will be. You will notice quite a bit of bronzer come off in your shower, but do not worry it is only the bronzer rinsing off, not your tan. Allow 24 hours for the skin to reach its peak level of darkness. Even after the solution is rinsed off, the tan will still continue to get darker on most skin types for the next 12-24 hours.

Please keep in mind that all tanning solutions are different! Just because you rinsed with a certain companies Rapid in a certain amount of time does not mean you will get the same results with every rapid solution on the market. For our Brushed Artistry Rapid Glow, these are the times we recommend to rinse off for each level of darkness:

2 Hours for a LIGHT tan

4 Hours for a MEDIUM tan

6 Hours for a DARK tan

8 Hours for an EXTRA DARK  tan

Having a Rapid tan makes it easier to go about your day. It is much easier for you (or your client) to set aside 2-6 hours rather than 8.  Happy tanning, and hope everyone is having a great week!

To Love, Laughter, and Happily Ever After… but dont forget your Spray Tan!

It is that time of year, and the wedding bells are ringing! I have had the pleasure of working with so many brides so far this year, giving them the natural golden glowing skin for their wedding day that they have always dreamed of. Since our Glowing Skin solution is customizable I am able to give each, and every bride her own special shade that looks 100% natural on her skin. On your wedding day, you do not want to be super tan (or at least I don’t). Most brides want to look just like themselves, and to accentuate their natural features. Since we all know the damage the sun can do, not to mention you are also risking getting burned (Who wants to look sunburned on their wedding day? Not me! lol), a Spray Tan is the top option for achieving that perfect even skin tone for the big day.

When planning to book a spray tan for your wedding day I always advise doing a trial first. This gives us a chance to let you try out the service, and if you would like to go lighter or darker for the actual event we are able to do that. You will also want to do ANY waxing AT LEAST 48 hours before your appointment, and any shaving at least 24 hours prior. This gives your pores time to close in order to achieve optimal results. Also be sure to exfoliate your skin at least 24 hours prior. I suggest using a product I sell called DERMASURI. It is an amazing exfoliating mitt and will leave no residue on your skin prior to the tan.

Be sure to schedule any massages, pedicures, and manicures PRIOR to your appointment.

I have also had the pleasure of doing a ton of spray tan parties this wedding season! Spray Tan parties are a great way to tan the entire wedding party and will enhance your wedding photos. For every spray tan party of 4 or more, the Bride tans FREE!

Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize!

Has the cold weather taken a toll on your usually baby soft skin, or does your skin tend to be dry normally? If you usually have dry skin then I am sure moisturizer is a part of your everyday routine, but did you know that you should moisturize even more with a spray tan? Especially during these cold winter months (and the occasional cold week here in sunny Florida), your skin can tend to get dry. Using a moisturizer at least twice a day is a MUST when you get a spray tan. I assure that doing this will only improve your over-all spray tan, and spray tan experience, from when you first get it to when it starts to fade.

ALWAYS be sure to use a moisturizer that DOES NOT contain ALCOHOL or MINERAL OIL. These Ingredients are spray tan KILLERS and can cause your spray to fade much more rapidly. One that I highly recommend is Perfect Glow Moisturizer. It has done wonders on my own skin, and every one of my clients that have used it.

Now for those of you who don’t spray tan (what are you doing? lol) also even if you do not have dry skin, it is still important to stay moisturized. It should be an everyday part of your beauty routine no matter what kind of skin you have. Did you know prolonged use of moisturizer will reduce fine lines, and wrinkles as you age? So keep that skin moisturized, your skin will be sure to thank you as well as your spray tan artist!

3 Ways to Use Coconut Oil to Make Your Spray Tan LAST!

                                           coconuts-500x400                                                      

If you haven’t already noticed there is tons of research coming out about the benefits of using Coconut Oil. From using it while cooking to brushing your teeth, using it on your hair… but did you know it can even help you out with your SPRAY TAN? Here is how!

Make a DIY Scrub, to use while preparing for your spray tan using COCONUT OIL! I will be posting my own special blend for my favorite scrub in my next blog, but a mix of sugar and coconut oil will do the trick. You can find tons of other recipes on Pinterest as well. Exfoliating your skin before your spray tan helps to get off all the dead skin cells so that the application is even. The Coconut Oil also works as a moisturizing treatment for your skin, and moisturized skin takes better to Spray Tan.

   OrganicCoconutOil

Use COCONUT OIL as a daily moisturizer before your spray tan, and after your spray tan for baby soft skin! Dry or flaky skin will fade unevenly causing your Spray Tan to look uneven, and blotchy. A little bit of Coconut Oil goes a long way when using it as a body moisturizer. Put a small bit in your hand, and gently rub all over. Moisturized skin stays tanner longer and fades the most evenly.

best-shaving-cream

You can also use Coconut Oil to shave your legs. When shaving while you have a spray tan ALWAYS use a NEW razor NEVER a dull one. Also ALWAYS be sure to use something to shave with. I usually use conditioner but have been mixing in some Coconut Oil as well. It works GREAT! My skin is silky smooth, and it does not take off my golden glow.

So what are you waiting for? If you don’t already have some laying around the house be sure to pick up a jar of Coconut Oil the next time you are out. Your Brushed Artistry Spray Tan, and skin will thank you!

Taking the crown with a Brushed Artistry Spray Tan

image-2

When it comes to pageants a spray tan is a very important part of your pre-pageant routine. Not just any spray tan, a flawless spray tan. I would also recommend full body contouring for this type of event.

image-1

We were honored to spray some AMAZING ladies this pageant season. We would like to congratulate ALL of them for winning the crown! We are happy to have Miss Orlando, Miss Princess America, and Miss Lake Eola in our Brushed Artistry family. You girls deserve it, and it is always a pleasure working with you.

Brushed Artistry’s mobile services make it easy for these girls who are constantly on the run. Prepping for the pageants, and living their normal day to day lives. For ladies competing in pageants I ALWAYS recommend to book a trial appointment before they need to be tanned for the actual event. I do this because everyone’s skin is different, some people can achieve darker colors than others when applying the exact same solution. This way the girls know the exact color and can customize it to be lighter or darker (if they would like to, most of the time nothing needs adjusting) before the big day. What I love most about Glowing Skin’s Sunless Solutions is that they ARE customizable. Other solutions I have worked with in the past have been either one color for everyone, or a light, medium, and dark. With Brushed Artistry, I can create the absolutely perfect, most natural looking color for my clients. NEVER Orange, NEVER streaky, ALWAYS flawless. Continue reading
