The Natural Finish

GLO Matte One Day Tan, £5.49 (was £10.99) | Bondi Sands

For a 24-hour quick fix, this silky, lightweight product creates an instant, flawless finish. For high and even coverage, apply it like a moisturiser and blend it out using a mitt or brush to buff everything out. Using a skin-perfecting formula, it casts a seamless glow, which is both transfer and waterproof. At the end of the day, simply wash it off with soap and warm water.

The Customisable Glow

Instant Glow Body Bronzer Medium, £13 (was £15) | St Tropez

With a cream-to-powder formulation, a quick-drying finish and smudge-proof coverage, this offers fast, reliable results. We’re big fans of the non-sticky, easy-to-apply texture – not to mention the signature St Tropez scent. Make this your go-to for a bronzed glow that lasts all day – and night – until you are ready to rinse it off.

The Blurring Hero

Body Base Instant Tan, £16 | Sculpted By Aimee

A tan and make-up hybrid, this product works like a foundation for the body – blurring, smoothing and perfecting to achieve a more flawless finish. While adding a radiant coverage, it’s also seriously nourishing thanks to added shea butter. It also contains SPF – bonus.

Awesome Bronze Flawless Self-Tanning Mist for Face & Body, £60 | Beauty Pie

For a flawless, even and customisable finish, try this easy-to-apply party hero.

There are two shades to choose from, but you can intensify the finish by applying a little extra to deepen the shade.
