What to wear after your spray t an?

Welcome to Spray Tan Wear.

It’s a question that spray tan lover’s have faced for a long time – just what do you wear to your spray tan appointment that will both protect your newly acquired tan and not ruin your clothing?

Luckily…. Spray Tan Wear has the solution for you.

Here at Spray Tan Wear we saw a need to fill a void in the market after numerous clients posed the question whilst spray tanning them, so many clients were unsure what to wear so we have designed an outfit to solve this dilemma.

The end result saw us create the Tansie® the spray tanning onesie which is both comfortable and practical and would be the perfect addition to any spray tan lover’s wardrobe.

Wear the Tansie® to & from your spray tan appointment without ruining the car seat, lounge, or sleep in it to protect your sheets. Great for those winter days when you need protection from the rain.

Available now www.spraytanwear.com.au

Our Makeup Studio

Here at Minx Makeup & Spray Tanning we recently made some changes to our makeup studio in Jannali, Sutherland Shire.

I was lucky enough to work with Dominique Brammah from Hunter Harmony Design Studio for the initial step towards our room makeover. Dom planned & designed the room layout & suggested key pieces for the makeup studio which I was very happy with and excited about starting way back in January 2012.

Right from the start I dreamt of black & white striped bold wallpaper, chandeliers, french chairs & white furniture with of course some hot pink thrown in too. I  wanted a modern place where my brides & clients could come, relax & be pampered along with sufficient office storage and space for my expanding makeup & spray tanning business.

We like to ensure we cater for all our clientele so whether your style is soft, natural, classic & traditional or bold and dramatic, we have up to 15 years experience ensuring a professional finish that wears beautifully throughout the day. We are also highly trained in airbrushing makeup which gives a flawless long lasting result.

If you would like to go ahead & book a wedding trial or your wedding day makeup please email cathy@minxmakeup.com.au to arrange a quote or an appt.

You can also find us on Facebook, Twitter & Pinterest for some bridal makeup or wedding inspiration with pins being added frequently.

Many thanks to my gorgeous friend & photographer Heidi Hansell from Heidi Hansell Photographer for taking the time to capture my dream work space & studio.

Leigh’s Wedding

Leigh had a gorgeous casual wedding planned. With her ceremony planned for the gardens at Carss Park but the rainy weather changed her plans to their house followed by their beautiful lunch reception at Blackwater Restaurant Sans Souci.

When Leigh came to Minx Makeup & Shire Mobile Hair she wanted something that was soft and styled.

At her pre-wedding trial we used airbrush makeup which I thought suited her skin best, and she absolutely loved it. We went with soft smokey eyes using MAC shadows with some eyeliner, her cheeks were also airbrushed. Leigh also had a light 2 hour tan in Caramel by Technotan.

Sheree from Shire Mobile Hair did a beautiful job on her hair as always.

Wishing you all the best for your future together Leigh & Simon, thanks for having us, you were a wonderful bride.

Cheers Cathy
