I get a lot of questions from spray tan artists about using separate tanning solutions during spray tan contouring; one for the base tan, and one for the contouring itself.
It’s important to keep in mind that layering tanning solution also layers the percentage of DHA that has been applied, resulting in a deeper tan. In other words, if you use a 9.5% DHA base tan, like the Kona Tanning House Blend, and then add a second layer of tanning solution, the areas where you have added extra product will automatically develop darker than the areas with only one layer of product. Therefore, no separate solution is needed for spray tan contouring.
BONUS: Use the same tanning solution for both the base tan and the contouring, and you’ll see consistent undertones throughout the entire spray tan that are completely realistic looking!
