Tanning in Winter can be tricky. You don't want to be too dark, but you most definitely want to glow. A gradual tanning cream is perfect, but don't be scared to take things up a notch and actually continue using a full tan, just like you would in Spring and Summer. While there will always be a special spot in our hearts for Modelco Tan Airbrush in a Can ($22), the tanning foam, Super Tan Instant Self Tan ($39), is just as easy to apply.
The colour intensity is quite deep, but remember you can layer if you're not happy on first application. Less is always more when it comes to self-tan! We used Modelco's Blend Buffing Mit which helps even out coverage enormously, and of course we exfoliated well beforehand. The foam provides instant colour (with a very faint scent), and it is recommended you let the tan develop for at least two hours before showering. If you're waiting to get to bed though, an hour-and-a-half will do just fine.
The formula includes macadamia oil and pomegranate extract so it'll leave you feeling soft and silky, and the added Melatime will accelerate your tan naturally, as it works on increasing the body’s Melanin levels.
You heard it here first, ladies. Our Mossy is the new face of St. Tropez and we've got some exclusive pictures of the supermodel shooting the campaign. But that's not all! We're also diving deep into the realm of self-tanning with St. Tropez skin finishing expert, Nichola Joss. "Today’s shoot is pool side; it is all about getting that beautiful, glowing, golden pool side tan," said Nichola on shoot day.

Ever wonder how runway models always look so glowy and sun-kissed, but still supple and hydrated? That's thanks to expert tanning backstage before the show. Self-tan is a magical product because it can instantly make you look longer, leaner, slimmer and just generally more fantastic. Backstage at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia, Model Co put their iconic self-tanning products to work on the models at Suboo. We've got a sneaky first look at the pictures, alongside a helpful tanning Q&A with bronzing and makeup artist Stacey McPherson, for ModelCo.

Spring has arrived so now is the time to get those pretty pins and limbs out. That's right — wax, shave and IPL your way to smooth, pronto! At-home tanning has come a long way since those patchy, orange days (hey, we've all been there), but even with the mits, mousses and sprays, it can be time consuming. That's why we love wash-off bronzers. You can just slap on instant, golden goodness and run out the door. A quick shower when you return home and your skin will be back to its regular old not-so-glowing self. Good for the sheets, right? We've got our top five, wash-off bronzers on every budget, so click through to join us in one-day brown town.
Skin. Whiter. Shade. Of. Pale. Must. Apply. Some. Colour. This has been the state of play for the last TWO weeks now. But I've been too busy to get a spray tan mid-week and I've been away at the weekends so my big exfoliator, tanner and tanning mitt just don't fit in amongst my travel-friendly beauty stash. 'Specially because I can never decide on which shoes. So I take 'em all. Lucky for me though, and you of course, ModelCo has come to the rescue with its new Jet-Set Collection. One Night Tan 65g ($12.95), Tan Mousse 100ml ($12.95) and Tan Gloss Shimmering Self-Tan 100ml ($12.95) are NEW and MINI. Exciting, huh? One Night Tan is an instant bronzing mousse that'll wash off in the morning, Tan Mousse is ModelCo's deepest, darkest tan to date that comes in a lightweight foam (Snooki, I'm guessing you want it, right?) and Tan Gloss is a gel with super-fine shimmering particles that add instant colour and long-lasting tan. Slip One Night Tan in your handbag for any last-minute hot dates. LOVE.
