I wouldn’t recommend self tanners… I’ve never had any success with them (and I’ve tried 4 different brands). Recently, I got an airbrush tan (where an actual person does it, not a machine) and it looked so natural and beautiful! It was only like $40 and it lasted 2 weeks.

Jergen’s natural glow. 

I’m puerto rican but also white and I use it regularly in the winter! Otherwise my skin is a weird yellow/pale color instead of my usual light brown. 

I LOVE this stuff. 

It’s very gradual but I mix it in with my everyday lotion and spread it all over. It really does look natural and , depending on how pale you are, creates a sunny glow. Don’t go crazy though! πŸ˜‰ 

It’s relatively cheap and something I use all year round.

Ooo! Ooo! Ooo! Me! Me!

 

I’m about as pale as it gets.. I used to get regularly asked if I was feeling okay, was going to faint, needed to sit down, etc.

 

I tried many different self-tanners.. I’m going to give it to you straight: if you can buy it in a drug store, it’s going to turn you orange. Period.

 

There are many good ones such as St. Tropez, but they are very pricey.. I have used the same self-tanner for a year and a half, although it needs to be ordered from the UK it costs me about 6 bucks a bottle including shipping. It’s basically a knockoff of St. Tropez, it’s called St. Moriz. Amazing. A nice golden brown, absolutely no orange whatsover. Just make sure you wash your hands after you do a part of your body, or it will turn them brown-ish too (leg *wash*, other leg, *wash*, arm, *wash* etc.)

 

Best tanner out there!

I would suggest you go to a spa and have a professional do an airbrush tan. It’s too risky to do it yourself for your wedding day.  A salon will give you an even application and you can choose how light or dark you would like to go.  It can cost anywhere from $40 to $80… definitely worth it.

I am super pale and have tried almost everything on the market.  I love St Tropez and Fake Bake.  They never turned me orange and you only need to leave on for a few hours to get some good, natural looking color.  I only leave on for 3-4 hours and it gets me a great color!  good luck!

St. Tropez all the way! It is awesome, not orange or streaky and it works quickly.

@MrsPtoBee: Also, if you are getting married on Saturday I would suggest you get it done on Thursday.

There is one self tanner that I have had success with and it’s GlowFusion protein tan spray. Of course it is now super hard to find, but it always looked natural on my pale skin. If you can find it, stock up!

My alltime favorite is Loreal tan gelee. I’ve tried almost everything when it comes to sunless tanners, but this is my favorite. The gel dries quickly, it’s never rubbed off on anything (even on white clothes or sheets), and it gives you a beautiful not-at-all-orange tan! (Beware, the lotion version by Loreal is not nearly as good. It also glitter in it.)

I discovered “Sally Hansen Air Brushed Legs” not too long ago and I think it’s amazing! I’m really fair skinned so most fake tanners look really orange and terrible on me but this stuff works great. It comes in a variety of shades and costs about $10-15 a bottle depending on where you shop. (Btw, it’s not just for your legs, I put it on my arms, etc. too!)
