So I finally decided that I need some color. The FH was kind of against it because he doesn’t want me to look orange. I’ve tried the mystic tan and it does look a bit dark, and I wanted to go with something more natural looking. Only thing our wedding is this Saturday, as in 4 days! I’ve been told to try the airbrush one for a more natural look. Has anyone tried this? Any recommendations? Should I just skip it and look pale?

What shade did you use in the Mystic? I find that if I use the medium without the bronzer, then that works for me. The bronzer stuff makes me look a little like an Oompa Loompa from Willy Wonka. Also, I use the Versa Spa more so than the Mystic. It doesn’t have the orange-y look to me.

I wouldn’t do anything so close to the wedding unless you can get a friend with a similar skin tone to recommend someone. I’d be too nervous to try it though for fear of looking orange.
Pale is the new tan 🙂

Well I used the spray booth at the tanning salon and it was splotchy. I think it is fine if you are just wanting it to go on vacation but since it is for the wedding I wouldn’t do the spray booths.
Now my friend did hire a pro-airbrush person and she had her’s done the day before. It was really even and not too dark.

@vintage2010 that’s what I want to try a pro-airbrush person who can spray me all around, not the machine. I may try it tomorrow to give it a couple of days so that in case anything does go wrong it can be taken care of by then.

@kbsharp thanks for the tip to try mystic without the bronzer, I’ll remember that next time I try it. I’ve heard good things about the Versa too.

The only thing I’d warn you about, which is as with any fake tanning that I’ve tried, is that sweating after being dyed (even not freshly dyed!), can make orange sweaty stains. Sweating orange dye on a dress would not be fun.
