My Favorite Airbrush Gun for Spray Tan Contouring
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.

Since there are no straight lines in contouring, a fan-shaped spray produces an unrealistic, "stenciled" appearance that is hard to work … [Read more...]

What are DIMPLES OF VENUS (aka lower back dimples), anyway?!
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.

The Best Mobile Tanning Kit – Under $100!
I’ve literally dragged this kit across the world! It’s been pulled through the snow, hit by a wave, survived New York City subways, Hawaiian Humidity, and Paris Rain. I’ve even *gasp* checked my kit with airplane baggage! All of my airbrush guns were stolen though, so I don’t recommend this!! This kit is excellent for mobile tanning, but since it is slightly bigger than what you’re allowed to bring as a carry-on for most airlines, I recommend shipping it ahead of time to your destination, … [Read more...]
