How to Self-Tan Confidently and Without Turning Orange

Jun 3, 2022
It's a solo episode! Resident self-tanning fiend and former professional airbrush artist Kirbie is breaking down everything you need to know to self-tan confidently, no matter your comfort level or skin tone. How do you properly tan the face? How much of those self-tanning drops should you actually use? Can you avoid that corn chip smell? So you turned orange — how can you avoid that in the future? And perhaps most controversially: is self-tanning just as bad for your skin as tanning in the sun?
These are all *your* questions, so tune in to see if your request was covered!
