People with fair skin need to take extra care when choosing and applying fake tan products. Choose a shade that is too dark for your natural skin tone, and things will just go from bad to worse!… Trust me.
It’s important to choose a product that is available in a light shade, and has been specifically developed for those with a fair and pale complexion. A huge common mistake I see among women and younger girls is their desire to look as dark as they possibly can by using the darkest available fake tan, even if their natural skin complexion will not suit being coated in a dark shade of fake tan. Honestly ladies, you will look 10 x better if you choose a light fake tan product that matches your skin complexion!
When it comes to using fake tan i always think of those times when i was a teenager in high school, you know the times when you used to wear a make-up that was 5 times darker than your actual skin tone. Luckily nearly every girl i know who used to do this has grown out of that phase (with the help of some products from MACC!) and now use make-up that best suits their skin tone, to help give them a completely natural look.
It is the exact same with fake tan, if you are using a shade that is too dark for your skin then its time to snap out of the phase guys. Remember great fake tan is like good make-up, it enhances your look and minimizes your flaws, use the correct shade and your natural beauty will continue to shine through!
Sunjunkie produce a number of fake tan for pale skin which are ideal for those with a fair complexion, I’m talking redheads and blondes. Sunjunkie self tanning mousse should be at the very top of your buy list if you are searching for a light fake tan. This tanning product will add a very natural light glow which looks perfect when combined with fair hair such as a strong red or a blonde. The product is also ideal for sensitive skin and does not contain any alcohol which dries the skin out very quickly.
The Sunjunkie self tanning mousse will last on the skin for 5-7 days and fades evenly without causing streaks. Sunjunkie have paid extra attention to ensuring that the fake tan does not steak as this will show up from a mile away especially on someone with already fair/pale skin! The product was recently used at the New York Fashion Week to provide the catwalk models with a very subtle glow before they had to strut down the catwalk in front of all those A-listers and fashion critics.
Sunjunkie are the Official Professional’s Choice for Spray Tan Solutions and supplies throughout the UK and Europe
The main difference between Sunjunkie spray tan solutions and other brands available is that the Sunjunkie collection is produced and formulated exclusively by Sunjunkie and has been perfectly blended with the finest tanning agents and moisturizing ingredients.

It is important to buy directly from the manufacturer in order to offer your clients the best possible results and increase your returning customers.
Sunjunkie spray tan solutions have been infused with unique colour undertones that actively work together to produce the most beautiful natural tan typically penetrating deeper into the skin than other spray tan solutions to ensure a longer lasting tanned complexion.

Here at Sunjunkie we often get asked what is the best spray tan kit for a mobile spray tan therapist or what is the best spray tan machine for a professional beauty salon. Well today we are going to answer those questions for you and make choosing a new spray tanning machine an easy process.
There are many spray tan machines on the market that are targeted at different businesses. For example some are aimed at mobile spray tan therapists and some at high end busy beauty salons, but how do you know which machine is best for your business?
Sunjunkie have the UK’s largest range of Spray Tan Machines and Kits, not only do Sunjunkie manufacture machines for their selves, they also manufacture machines for other spray tan companies, further cementing their reputation as the market leader for all spray tanning equipment.

Here at Sunjunkie we often get asked “What is the darkest spray tan solution that you do?” and the honest answer is there isn’t one.
Okay so as you are all aware, everyone has different skin tones and types which means one thing… Spray tan solutions will have different results on everyone. What may promise dark results for one skin tone may not be dark for another. For example, blonde’s naturally have a lighter complexion to brunettes, so will only need a lighter shade of fake tan in order to achieve a beautiful natural tan, whereas brunettes tend to have the much sought after olive complexion so can get away with using a darker spray tan solution
The darkest percentage of spray tanning solution that Sunjunkie produces is the 14% which is available across all of our ranges, however when someone asks the famous “what is the darkest spray tan solution that you do” question I will always analyse their skin tone before I reply. For fair skin i tend to stick to the 10% occasionally pushing this up to 12% should our clients insist on a darker shade. For brunettes the most common percentage to use on their skin tone is the 12% again occasionally pushing this up to 14% should they insist on having the darkest solution.
But the message i really want to get across today is that by using a higher spray tan solution percentage does not mean that your tan will be darker, as skin tone and type HAS to be taken into account.
Here at Sunjunkie we have tested this theory many times and the results have been the same every time. If you spray a very light skin toned person with the same spray tan solution as a dark skin toned person, the results will simply not look the same and there is a high chance that the person with the lighter skin tone will have very unnatural results as the solution percentage will be too high and not be the right color for their natural skin tone.
It is no secret that fake tan and spray tan solution has had its fair share of negative publicity, from orange looks to streaky legs, but it is for the reason of people using a product that is not made for their skin tone in trying to achieve a tan that is simply too dark for their natural complexion which leaves them looking un-natural.
Our advice is to use the correct percentages on clients with a certain skin tone – Below is our spray tan solution + skin tone guide to help you in choosing the correct percentages for your clients.
6 – 8% = Very fair/ light skin tone
8 – 10% – Light to Medium skin tone
10 – 12% = Medium to Dark skin tone
12 – 14% = Dark/Olive skin tone
Sunjunkie have a collection of 4 spray tan solutions to choose from, all available in a light, medium or dark shade to suit every skin type.
Sunjunkie Duo Spray Tan Solution – For those that love a completely natural complexion is a light medium or dark shade. The sunjunkie duo is a combination of our Supreme and Original spray tan solution and is our most beautiful colour yet!

As most of you will know, last night was the night of the famous Victorias Secret Fashion Show. Or in other words the night that ACTUALLY perfect girls all get together and walk the catwalk in the most perfect underwear known to Women.
Last nights show was extra special, in the way that it marked the debut of our 2 favorite super models, Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid… Lets just all take a minute to appreciate them below.
Not only have these girls got amazingly good looks, great bodies, global superstar status and are now both Victoria’s Secret Angels, they both have absolutely flawless skin.
How do they do it?
Both Kendall and Gigi will obviously have a stylist team on hand to help them perfect their look and achieve a naturally tanned skin tone, but this look is more than achievable to those people who do not have a team of stylists. Its all about knowing what works well for your skin tone.
Kendall has a naturally darker skin tone of the two so can opt for brighter colours such as reds and electric blues in her clothing. Gigi who has a natural lighter skin tone is able to compliment this with a light layer of fake tan and a turquoise outfit that compliments her skin tone perfectly.
How can you achieve their skin tone?
Its all about knowing what works best for your skin tone and choosing the right skin care product to develop the correct look on your skin. For those with a darker skin tone, similar to Kendall, we would recommend a Medium to Dark shade of fake tan. This will give you a natural olive complexion which would further compliment your already dark skin tone. A dark shade of fake tan on dark skin will always give the most perfect look. Its when people add a dark layer of fake tan onto light skin tone that the results can look very unnatural. To get Kendall Jenner’s fake tan look you can just simply click on her picture to view our recommended product to re create her look
Gigi Hadid has done quite the opposite to Kendall and has opted for a very light layer of fake tan that will add a nice subtle glow and add a bit of warmth to her skin tone. Blondes that have a pale skin tone can sometime look a little bit washed out. To counteract this a light layer of fake tan is needed to add a natural glow. It almost looks like Gigi is not wearing any fake tan due to the natural complexion that she has managed to maintain however a very light shade of fake tan will have this same natural effect and will add warmth and a glow to the skin.

Spray Tan Therapists need to take extra care when it comes to choosing a spray tan solution for clients with blonde hair as they need to ensure that the shade of the tanning product compliments their skin tone and hair colour. Most spray tan solutions are only formulated for people to achieve the darkest possible look, mainly brunettes and olive skin people. Its no secret that when you put a dark shade of tanning solution on someone with a fairer skin tone or hair colour, the results are… Questionable!
Blondes can sometimes look a little bit washed out with a pale complexion, the right tan can add a much needed complexion boost and add a bit of colour and warmth to pale skin, However it is important that you find the right shade of spray tanning solution as you know by now that a spray tan is not suited for every skin tone, they come in many different shades and colours.
Here is our list of the perfect spray tan solutions for blondes to achieve the most naturally tanned complexion possible.
Sunjunkie Supreme Spray Tan Solution – The Sunjunkie supreme tanning solution will instantly give blonde clients a natural tanned complexion, the perfect product to add a touch of colour to your pale skin. The Sunjunkie supreme spray tanning solution is available in many different strengths, for anyone new to spray tanning, the higher the strength, the darker the colour. Ideally Sunjunkie recommend the 8% Supreme spray tan solution for clients with fair hair/skin. This will ensure that your client has a perfectly natural looking tan and will dress their skin with a nice warm glow, without looking unnatural.
The Sunjunkie Supreme Spray Tan Solution will last for 7-10 days and will fade evenly which is essential as a streaky and patch tan can be noticed from a mile away on pale skin.
Sunjunkie Duo Spray Tan Solution – The Sunjunkie Duo spray tanning solution is perfect for blondes who want to add a subtle touch of the sun on both their face and body. The Sunjunkie Duo tanning solution instantly improves skin complexion and lasts for 7-10 days. The Sunjunkie Duo is a mixture of the 2 best selling spray tan solutions that Sunjunkie produce. It contains unique plummy undertones that have never been seen in any other spray tanning solution.
The Sunjunkie Duo has a reputation of being their most natural looking spray tan solution and works wonders on fair haired/skin people. This solution was launched at the New York Fashion Week in 2014 and continues to be a favorite with many professional salon and spa’s
Sunjunkie Express Spray Tan Solution – The Sunjunkie express spray tanning range is the only tanning collection that has been specifically formulated for every skin tone. Users can achieve a very light tan to a deliciously dark tanned complexion. How? Just simply leave the product on your skin for the designated time to achieve a specific result. Have a look at our guidelines below.
1 hour = light tan
2 hours = Medium tan
3 hours = Dark tan
4 hours = Deliciously Dark tan
I would reccomend leaving this product on for 2 hours if you have fair hair/skin as this will develop into a natural medium shade tan. The express spray tan solution is ideal for busy salons and mobile technicians who have a wide customer base as they are able to provide a custom tan to every client with just one product.
