Extracts of the Plumeria flower (also known as the Frangipani Flower), as seen in the Kona Tanning Gradual Tanner, is hugely beneficial to our skin.

My Favorite Airbrush Gun for Spray Tan Contouring

kona-katie-quinn-contouring-for-airbrush-spray-tanning

I get a lot of questions about which airbrush gun I use to contour during spray tanning. My favorite is the Iwata Revolution Dual Action 2000 Series, which I've been using since the very beginning.  This gun is nice and light, bottom-feeding, easy to control, and the output is a cone-shaped spray, not flat and fan-shaped like many HVLP systems produce. Since there are no straight lines in contouring, a fan-shaped spray produces an unrealistic, "stenciled" appearance that is hard to work … [Read more...]

DIMPLES OF VENUS: Wikipedia says, “The dimples of Venus (also known as back dimples, butt dimples or Venusian dim-ples) are sagittally symmetrical indentations sometimes visible on the human lower back, just superior to the gluteal cleft.” Some women already have them, and some don’t—just like dimples in our smiles. It’s up to you and your client if you’d like to enhance, or even create these contours, because there’s just no rhyme or reason as to who has them. They’re really cute on … [Read more...]
