THE FOOLPROOF
FAKE TAN

International tanning guru to the stars James Read reveals how to bluff the perfect summer glow with his bestselling, easy-to-apply Bronzing Mousse

Nothing beats the beach-confidence boost of a radiant glow. Cheating the appearance of a week in Cannes and with the power to soften the look of cellulite and stretch marks, expertly applied fake tan can even create the illusion of more toned, statuesque limbs. The golden rule is that it has to look real, not from a bottle – and be 100 per cent streak free. That’s why I invented my foolproof Bronzing Mousse. With a handy guide colour, you can see exactly where you’re applying it, plus it dries in 60 seconds for an instant ready-to-wear glow. Avoid tell-tale orange palms and achieve even results by applying with a tanning mitt, and take a ‘tan selfie’ in the mirror to check you haven’t missed any awkward areas. No-one will tell it’s fake if you don’t.
