What is a Colour Base?
Go around the world in as little as one hour with a Colour Base tan. We set about to demystify the Colour Base tan, explain out how they work, which one to choose and come on a journey colour.
Much like your hair colour or cosmetics, your colour base tan can be selected based on your desired end result and skin finish. It doesn’t matter what your skin type or tone is, by using a colour base tan you are in control. You choose your level of colour and then the tone or finish you want to end up with; it really is as easy as that.
Colour base tans have been designed to replicate the sun kissed results from around the world. If you’ve ever been to Europe you may have noticed the tan you get naturally from the sun there is very different to that you may be normally used to if you live say in the USA, Australia, or anywhere else in the world. The same can be said of if you were to holiday in Australia, then the sun tan you get there is completely different to that in Europe, Asia or the USA. So which colour base do you choose?
If you want to look like you’ve just stepped off the beach in Positano, San Sebastian or Santorini for example, you’ll be looking for a skin finish with a rich dark red-brown. To achieve this end result you will want to use a Violet Base tan.
Maybe you want to look like you’ve just come back from Rio in Brazil. For this you need a Dark Ash base tan that will leave your skin nished with a cool, intense dark brown.
Or maybe you want that quintessential Aussie babe look; that natural olive brown look that has been made famous by Elle Macpherson, Miranda Kerr or Margot Robbie. Then you should try a Green base tan.
So how do they work exactly?
A unique set of bronzers and active ingredients give these tans their relative colour base. When the DHA interacts with your skin, these colour actives also go to work to give you that desired skin tone and end result.
