First things first – Start with a basic b**** spray tan.
We love giving those on the self-improvement path a little encouragement for 10-14 days every time they look in the mirror. Spray tanning will not make you lose weight faster, work harder at the gym, or better at resisting that donut. What it will do… Make you feel great each time you look in the mirror, in turn making you a little less critical and a little more forgiving. These two things, in particular, could game-changer you need and keep you motivated. The look good – feel-good team, ya we’re very, very much a part of that and hope you will join us.
If you have never had a spray tan and are unaware of its magical properties, please head over to our booking page and try a Lavish Tan Single Coat Spray Tan. At Tanning Cabana, we think you should ease into spray tan. Learning about spray tan and how it works will lead to great results. Spray tanning is not as easy as just laying down in a bed and pressing go. Spray tan, like all great things, requires time and effort. Dieting and working out are major lifestyle changes that will take plenty of effort and time to see results. While you are doing that – take a minute to read your spray tan guide. Then book your spray tan and ask plenty of questions to your tech.
Once you have had a spray tan and know they are incredible…

Blending is my cardio…
Is contour something that Kim Kardashian popularized? Is contour a method of makeup application that is a grandiose illusion? Can you contour without NARS, Hoola bronzer, and a Beauty Blender? The answer to all these questions is yes. Contour has been used for hundreds of years on the stage to show emotion on the faces of actors. It has been a popularized method of makeup application refined and introduced by late makeup artist Kevyn Aucoin. Kevyn Aucoin made a household name celebrity look like another celebrity from the past or even modern-day. Unless a viewer looked twice, one might mistake his makeup on Courtney Love as a photo of Marilyn Monroe. He did this through many tricks, including the illusion of contour. Find his books here. (Seriously- they are bestsellers, check em out.)
Contour is defined as an outline,
Especially one representing or bounding the shape or form of something. In the makeup, world contour is known as defining and minimizing to stand out or reduce the prominence of a feature. Bronzer-defined areas include the sides of the nose, just below the cheekbones, the hairline, and the underside v of the chin. Highlighted areas include the brow bone, mid-forehead, the top of the cheekbones, and the bridge of the nose. The contour gives our eyes depth of field when we look at another’s face. Our eyes pick up on light cast off by the highlighting shimmery makeup and find the definition in the hairline from the bronzer. It can make your face look skinnier, the nose appears straighter, cheekbones higher, and make a double chin seem to disappear.
Sunless Contour Tanning
We have taken contour one step further with semi-permanent status and entire body coverage in the world of sunless tans. In contour tanning, we apply to the face the way you would with makeup: the hairline, the cheekbones, and jawline. When contouring a body, abdominal muscles are defined, arms are strategically shaded to look slimmer, and the sides of the body, including legs, are more saturated to give the illusion of length when looking straight on. Spray tan artists apply the solution with a small airbrush gun allowing for heavy concentration in small areas. These tans are perfect for photoshoots, beach vacations, and wedding nights. A contour tan will boost your confidence in a matter of minutes. We still think you should work out for your health, but leave the definition to the airbrush gun. If you can’t tone it, tan it.
We like to consider ourselves the authority on Minnesota contour tanning since 2013. Even in the dead of winter, you can spot our tans on vacationers, brides, and you know there are so many photoshoots going on while the snowfalls outside now if someone would throw a pool party in January!
