Beach Netball Event

On Saturday 15th October, Naked Tan’s HQ team and one of our gorgeous salon managers Gordana attended the Beach Netball at North Wollongong.

Naked Tan

We were a part of the first day of the official Beach Netball tournament and the day was buzzing with support from local and interstate netballers, sponsors and beach goers.

The Naked Tan team set up an amazing tanning experience directly on the beach – YEP you heard it… We tanned over 40 women in pop up tanning tents on the esplanade of North Wollongong Beach as part of our event activation.

The netballers loved the Naked Tan products, testing our gorgeous crème de la crème, grabbing their free spray tans and even having the chance to spin our prize wheel and take home a prize.

The beach was packed with approximately 50 teams, who at the end of the day could be seen with a gorgeous Naked Tan beach bag on their shoulders.

Naked Tan joined forces with Netfit Netball, Red Bull, NSW Cancer Council, Girl Lane, i98 FM and Chobani Australia to make sure all attendees were looking great, being safe and having a great time!

A huge thank you to all the attendees, congratulations to the winners, the losers and all who took part in the event!

NAKED TAN Flagship Store, Wollongong – NSW

5It’s an exciting time for Naked Tan! Our professional solution is stocked in over 3,000 salons and a Naked Tan spray tan is sprayed every 45 seconds all over the world! With over 10 years of hard work and dedication to innovation in the industry – it was time to launch the first-ever international flagship Naked Tan retail store in Wollongong, NSW.

Wednesday 7th September 2016, was the official launch party for the flagship store and the event was an amazing opportunity to connect face-to-face with Naked Tan fans, VIPs, brand ambassadors, Illawarra business professionals and salon owners.

The Naked Tan flagship store plans were in the making for approximately 6 months and the reason we chose Wollongong as our location is because of its stunning beaches, picturesque coastlines, cosmopolitan dining, shopping, culture and it was the birth place of the Naked Tan branding in 2007.

The grand opening event was officiated by Jackie Bowker, our official model and the face of Naked Tan with Naked Tan’s owner Lea Taylor. The champagne was flowing, whilst fans enjoyed trialing Naked Tan’s retail products and discussing the flagship stores offerings of VIP spray tan experiences.

We would love to thank everyone who came along to the opening and welcome every spray tan fan to the newest edition of the Naked Tan family – Wollongong’s flagship retail store!

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY

Kassandra Kashian: Goddess of the month May 2016

Miss Universe Australia state finalist, Kassandra Kashian, is a twenty-one-year-old Sydney sider, taking the beauty pageant industry by storm and inspiring others on her path towards success. At such a young age, she has already reached impressive heights within the pageant industry, including placing as first runner up in the recent Miss Galaxy Australia competition. A determined young woman who is not wholly consumed by the glitz and glamour of her industry, Kassandra’s social conscience and positive attitude give her a maturity beyond her years. We sat down with the talented up-and-comer to chat about juggling life, pageants, pressures and beauty –  both on the inside and out.  Here’s what she had to tell us.

Kassandra Kashian is a NAKED TAN ambassador. Photo by @foreverbeautifulimagesFirst of all, we know you juggle a lot of commitments between studying, competing and even makeup artistry –  could you tell us a little bit about what a typical week in the life of Kassandra Kashian looks like?

Yes, it can be very busy at times! A typical week for me involves going to university three days a week, working in makeup artistry 4 days a week, planning activities and making appearances for my pageants, exercising and spending my free time with my boyfriend, friends and family!


A lot of Australians probably don’t know much about the pageant world, if you could tell these people the best or the most important things to know about pageants, or things that might surprise them, what would they be?

I believe that pageants within Australia provide a wonderful opportunity for young women to challenge themselves and work toward achieving something. They encourage hard work and determination and allow people to strive towards becoming the best version of themselves. In Australia, there are currently a lot of different pageant systems operating, each with different requirements. It is important to find the pageant that best suits your lifestyle and your passions. For example, some pageants encourage charity work. This is a fantastic opportunity for young women to help those less fortunate than themselves. It is important for people to know that pageants in today’s society are more than just beauty focused. They are focused on the individual as a whole (including confidence, public speaking, intelligence, community work) and the work they do within society.

How long have you been involved in pageants? How did you first get involved?

I have been competing in pageants for two years now. I entered my first pageant when I was 18 years old and fell in love with the experience and the confidence it gave me.

Can you tell us a bit about your recent Miss Galaxy Australia journey? What are the highs and lows of competing in such a nationally acclaimed pageant?

From October 2015 until April 2016 I dedicated myself to the Miss Galaxy Australia pageant. The pageant focuses on judging contestants in fashion wear, swimwear, evening wear, interview and photogenic. It also awards bonus points to contestants based on their community appearances and charity work. I immersed myself in the competition and made it my priority. The high is definitely being able to help those less fortunate than yourself and gaining confidence by competing on stage. Another high for me was also placing 1st Runner Up at the national final.

Naked Tan is just as much focussed on inner beauty and self-confidence as we are about helping our customers feel great on the outside too – do you feel a lot of pressure to look a certain way, particularly when competing, and what do you do to take care of your inner goddess, to nourish how you feel inside as opposed to how you look on the outside?

I completely agree with Naked Tan’s message of inner beauty and self confidence. Being a make up artist I am constantly helping women look and feel that they are their best and most confident self. When competing in pageants obviously there are guidelines on how your hair, make up and tan should look but each contestants individual beauty is celebrated. I nourish my inner goddess by trying to fill my body with nutrients from healthy foods, exercising to feel positively about my body and my health and by challenging myself to gain further confidence.

Going on from that, do you feel a certain pressure to be a role model for younger girls in your industry? Or do you embrace that community responsibility/aspect  of pageantry?

When you are heavily involved with pageantry you automatically become a role model for younger girls within the community and the industry. It is important to recognise this and attempt to inspire them to achieve their full potential and challenge themselves. I feel I have a lot to teach others and would love to be thought of as someone they look up to.

Who is your biggest role model and why?

My biggest role model happens to be someone who is younger than me; Malala Yousafzai. She is the youngest person to ever win a Nobel Peace Prize and firmly stands up for her beliefs at all costs.

With the colder months ahead of us, it can often be hard to stay bronzed and sometimes we don’t look after ourselves as best we could, do you have any Winter beauty tips for our readers? What do you do to spoil yourself and feel/look great over Winter?

Kassandra Kashian loves NAKED TANAll year round I make sure to use my Naked Tan products and exfoliate, tan and moisturise to keep my skin looking its best. I am quite fair so love the natural glow Naked Tan gives me. I also love to have a bath every once in a while to hydrate my skin and relax! It is especially nice to have a bath during winter. I also try to continue exercising even though it can be very cold!

You always seem to be glowing with beauty and confidence on and off the stage, how does having a tan make you feel? Do you think having that extra bronzed, healthy glow gives you extra confidence?

Thank you! Having a tan makes me feel one hundred times more confident in myself. I honestly never leave the house without tan if I can help it! I just love the natural bronze glow I am able to achieve.

What do you love about Naked Tan products?

I love that the Naked Tan products are organic, vegan, cruelty free and ethically sourced! I think it is wonderful! I also love that they have a beautiful scent and feel very nourishing on the skin.

Finally, what’s the next stop on the journey – What exciting things can the world expect from Kassandra Kashian next? Where do you see yourself a year from now and five years from now?

My next step is graduating from my business degree! I am also currently a Miss Universe Australia state finalist and am extremely proud of my achievement. I can’t wait to continue working toward my goals before the next round of the competition. Additionally, in 5 years I hope to be working and combining my business background with my love for public speaking to secure the role of a television presenter.

Our March Goddess of the Month is Renee Somerfield!

Naked Tan chose Renee Somerfield as its March Goddess of the Month because yes, Renee is a true Goddess!

International model, Brand ambassador and true animal lover, Renee is a real role model for all the girls out there that want to mix healthy with beauty!

NT: When have you started modelling? How did everything started?

RS: I have first started modelling as a hobby. I was sales representative at the time, selling beauty products, cars or financial services. I had few contracts but then modelling started to get bigger and was taking too much of my working time. I finally ended up choosing modelling as a full time job at 19.

NT: How do you organise your days?

RS: Every day is different, I really don’t have any routine and to be honest, I have an amazing manager that organise my whole life.

NT: You have an incredible body. What is your secret?

RS: First, I have been really lucky with my genes as I have always been skinny and I am quite petite. I am also vegan, which helps a lot having a healthy way of eating but to be honest, I eat 6 to 8 times a day! I have actually gained weight by being vegan.

My body has always been like that. I don’t have any secret really, just being healthy and try to work out 3 to 4 times a week when I have a chance. Running on the beach is probably my favourite activity.

I think women shouldn’t have unrealistic body type and should just be themselves. Everyone is different and unique. We should all be proud of who we are.

NT: Naked Tan believes in its own philosophy that women should feel beautiful: ‘In harmony with beauty and life, simplicity of life, beauty and humble spirit, reveal the goddess within’. Do you have your own life motto?

RS: My life philosophy is Live & Love. I truly think everyone is beautiful and unique. We shouldn’t try to be someone else. As a true animal lover, I also 100% live by a quote from Pam Ahern, Founder of the Edgar’s Mission farm (Farm sanctuary): ‘If you can live happy and healthy without harming others, why wouldn’t you?’ I only use cruelty-free products, am vegan and really can’t understand that some brands keep testing their products on animals when other ways are available.

NT: What are your plans for 2014?

RS: I am currently working on a few projects that are going to be launched in 2014. I can’t really tell anything until they are released but they are all very exciting. There are mainly fashion projects but I will also be looking at getting more time to work on international modelling projects as well.

NT: What are your favourite Naked Tan products?

RS: The Goddess Shimmer is definitely my favourite product in the whole range. I use it all the time, especially for my shootings. It really enhances and evens my tan making me glow on photos and reducing imperfections. I use it as a body foundation. It is also perfect to get ready for a night out!

I also really like to scent of the whole product range. It is like a proper perfume, it’s amazing!

NT: Do you have a Naked Tan beauty tip?

RS: I usually like to have a tanning routine. I polish my skin with the Body Polish before a spray tan to remove dead skins. Then I apply the Goddess Glaze to even my tan and leave it overnight. Finally and especially if I have a photo shoot, I apply the Goddess Shimmer all over my body to glow on my photos.

Tan Tip Tuesday How to Ensure a Non-Patchy Tan

How to ensure a non patchy tan?
A patchy spray tan can occur in some of the following situations: If the skin hasn’t been exfoliated properly prior to your spray tan, you are taking medication, are pregnant, have a hormonal imbalance, pigmentation issues, have sweated or come into contact with liquid prior to washing off your tan. Prevent any of this from happening before or after your spray tan will ensure getting a perfect and even tan that lasts for longer.

Our first Goddess of the month in February is Sheridyn Fisher!

Beautiful, successful model and actress, brand ambassador and business woman with her own swimwear brand – Sheridyn Swim – Sheridyn Fisher is the kind of girl we all look at and think ‘WOW she’s incredible!’.

Naked Tan decided to meet with Sheridyn and uncover what makes her a true Goddess!

NT: We can currently see you on the February cover of Maxim Australia, what’s your secret to a beautiful body?

SF: I am very active and work out every day for at least 45 minutes. I play soccer, boxing, kick boxing and go to the gym. I always try to find a way to be active, even when I’m travelling. I also eat healthily by being vegetarian. Movement is the key!

NT: How do you plan and organise your busy days and still get time to take care of yourself?

SF: I try to have an overview of my upcoming week and start planning every day to make the best of each day. I wake up around 6-7 am every day, have a small breakfast, workout and I am then ready for my busy day.

NT: Naked Tan believes in its own philosophy that women should feel beautiful: ‘In harmony with beauty and life, simplicity of life, beauty and humble spirit, reveal the goddess within’. Tell us your philosophy that you live by and believe in….

SF: I live by the word ‘Love’. I truly think that the world needs love and could be a better place with Love. Getting the best out of every situation. If you’re positive then positive things will happen to you. Respecting our planet is also very important for me by using Vegan and cruelty-free products. I think that nowadays, we are able to take better care of our planet so we should start giving more thought to it.

NT: You’re an inspiration to many girls, who inspires you?

SF: Alicia Silverstone is probably the woman that inspires me most. She is a beautiful soul and has the same beliefs as me about the world. She also has the courage to stand-up for what she believes in. My nana and pop have also inspired me a lot. They’ve taught me life lessons and gave me good values. They were kind people and have been together their whole lives.

NT: What are your plans for 2014?

SF: I have many! First, I’m getting married in June in Thailand. Me and my fiancé have been together for 8 years and engaged for 7! I’ve always had to push back the wedding as I was too busy. But now everything is locked in. Professionally, a lot of really exciting acting opportunities are arising in the USA. I will also launch my swim wear line, Sheridyn Swim, internationally, and start working on my own gym wear line. 2014 will be full of surprises!

NT: What are your favourite Naked Tan products?

SF: When I have time for a spray tan, I usually use the Exotic solution as the colour really matches my skin tone. My favourite out of all the products is definitely the Naked Tan mousse. I use it all the time as I am usually too busy for a spray tan. I usually apply the mousse once a week, maybe a second time if I want to be a bit darker. I bring it with me when I travel. It is an amazing product and matches my skin type so well! I also use the Goddess Shimmer when I get ready for events and photo shoots. I love the colour it gives to my skin and how it highlights my tan.

NT: Would you have a Naked Tan tip to share with your followers?

SF: Mix the Goddess Shimmer with the Crème de la Crème to get a perfect shimmery/moisturising effect!

Thank you Sheridyn, we all look forward to reading and hearing about your successes in 2014!

August Goddess of the Month Lauren Mitchell

Our August Goddess of the Month is London based stylist and model, Lauren Mitchell!

We are excited to announce that our August Goddess of the month is Lauren Mitchell. 27-year-old Aussie living in London, Lauren Mitchell is a model and stylist taking on London by storm. Our European correspondent and brand ambassador, Lucinda Dennis sat down with Lauren over a cup of coffee to find out a little more about her life, how to crack the styling industry and what it was like making the move from sunny Bondi to Notting Hill.

1) With your job, you are lucky enough to travel the world visiting amazing locations only some can dream of. What is your favorite holiday destination?

Travelling is one of my greatest passions but I love certain places for different reasons – depending on the time of year, who I’m travelling with and what kind of mood I’m in but having moved to London recently I would have to say France is my go-to holiday destination.

Particularly, the south of France. It is one of Europe’s top travel spots but having been lucky enough to visit numerous times over the past two years I’ve discovered a new love. With the perfect combination of indulgence; food, wine and relaxed hidden beaches and coastlines, the whole place oozes sophistication. The people, the language, the food, the way of life, the fact that it is totally acceptable to drink rosé

at 10am! It is literally heaven on earth and if I had to eat French fish, mussels and drink French rosé for the rest of my life I would live a very happy life!

2. You travel the world eating glorious food. What do you do to ensure you feel good on the inside and out?

Fitness and health is one of my life’s greatest priorities and I have always eaten healthy, kept fit and nurtured my body- in fact if I don’t eat well and exercise I am one grumpy woman!

My theory is not to over do it. I don’t spend hours in the gym, I never skip a meal, I treat myself once a week, I allow myself to drink but I do maintain some sort of routine. 80:20 is my rule of thumb. If majority of my life I eat healthy and do exercise at least 4 times a week then a bottle of wine or a tub of Ben & Jerry’s is absolutely allowed!

During the week however I train twice at the gym with a PT, I never drive but walk everywhere and eat every three hours eating a load of healthy foods – nuts, salads and fruit. I have had to learn to be flexible. Travelling as much as I do and working sporadic hours means that you have to adapt but living a life that is TOO strict is simply no fun.

3) Styling can be a hard industry to crack. Can you give any aspiring Naked Tan girls some tips to how to get into the biz?

NETWORK. The end.

Every job I have ever been given is because of my big mouth and my ability to speak to anyone. The more people you meet and the more you get out to events, the greater your opportunities. I have styled editorials for international magazines from fighting over canapés in a bar. I have landed entire PR and brand management opportunities from saying hi to people crossing the street. You never know whom you’re talking to or the positions you can find yourself in from simply being friendly! Remember jobs won’t come find you, you have to go hunt them down.

4) What is the best part about being a stylist?

Being able to ‘accidentally on purpose’ man handle half naked male models…?

Meeting people and being creative. I work with everyday people to models to celebrities to babies and animals! A variety of work is what stimulates me the most and constantly keeps it exciting. As well being part of a shoot it’s not just you and a model, It’s an entire team. I’ve met producers, directors, photographers, celebrities, all creative types, tattoo artists, magicians and musicians- every project involves many more people from all sorts of backgrounds to create the final picture.

Being a stylist you also have great license for creativity. Quite often the story or idea is given to you and it is your job to manufacture and bring it to life.

… Did I mention the male models?

5) Do you have a dream celebrity you would want to style and why?

If my boyfriend wasn’t reading this I’d say Brad Pitt. But he is.

As exciting projects go you can’t go past styling something like a Victoria’s Secret show. I’m quietly infatuated with the girls and being slightly flamboyant and girly myself I would have an absolute ball coming up with every look.

As a challenge: The Rolling Stones. I’ve loved them ever since I was 5 and being so far from any style I’m familiar with, paired with the fact you’re working with men who know EXACLTY what they want, would make for a very interesting job. Plus would look fab on my resume!

6) Also being a model, can you tell us about your most memorable photo shoot ever?

From the more trivial but extremely fun shoots like ‘Beauty and The geek’ and Miss Universe to working with MTV on music video clips, Oporto adverts and Vodafone campaigns I’d have to say I find the people working on the shoot who make the experience memorable.

If you get a great crew and a team who makes you feel comfortable, everything goes smoothly and you get a great result, but modeling for me is actually quit a daunting experience. As far as memorable goes my part in Underbelly working with famous Australian actors really pushed me out of my comfort zone- despite my role being referred to as ‘Slut 1’.

7) When do you use Naked Tan?

Being a born and bread Aussie I am used to always having that bronzed Australian glow but now I’ve moved to London I have become my worst nightmare. I’ve lost all tan lines and now live a life of constantly trying to find a fake tan that doesn’t rub off onto my white bed sheets.

I have literally been through every fake tan brand known to man and ‘Naked Tan’ is the only one that doesn’t stain my clothes, can be applied right before a night out and that doesn’t lead to dreaded fake tan pong.

I use it weekly for a subtle glow, before I travel, for a dinner date or even a major event. It just means I can look healthy all year round and don’t have to succumb to the ‘Casper the friendly ghost’ syndrome many women suffer with over here.

8) Any tips to Naked Tan girls wanting to make the move from Australia to London?

I am going to sound like an old Nike advert but just do it! London is not all that different to Australia. We are all part of the Commonwealth – so the government and people are fairly similar. Also the fact that we both speak English helps! If you are under 30 you can get a 2-year working visa, which makes it an easy transfer over so make the most of that if you can!

Our 101 Guide to the Different Types of Yoga!

There are so many benefits of yoga – including lower blood pressure, increased strength and bone density, increased flexibility and reduced anxiety. Plus, who doesn’t want to look cool walking around with their yoga mat? With the rise of yoggie/flexie/healthy/foodie types on Instagram, Yoga has become a very popular exercise. However, with so many different options available it is hard to know which one is right for you. Geraldine Beirne, yogie/yoga teacher based in London (yogawithgeraldine.com) provides a really simple breakdown into the most common forms of yoga available.

IYENGAR YOGA

Iyengar and ashtanga yoga come from the same lineage – the teachers who developed these styles (BKS Iyengar and the late Pattabhi Jois) were both taught by Tirumalai Krishnamacharya. Many of the asanas (postures) are the same, but the approach is different. Iyengar yoga is great for learning the subtleties of correct alignment. Props – belts, blocks and pillow-like bolsters – help beginners get into poses with correct alignment, even when they’re new to them, injured or simply stiff. Anusara yoga is a more modern form of Iyengar.

ASHTANGA YOGA

Ashtanga is a more vigorous style of yoga. It offers a series of poses, each held for only five breaths and punctuated by a half sun salutation to keep up the pace. You can either attend a regular class or the more traditional Mysore style (see below).

MYSORE STYLE YOGA

Ashtanga yoga taught one-to-one in a group setting. Students turn up at any time within a three-hour window to do their own practice as taught by their teacher. This is my preferred style of learning yoga and, I think, the safest and most traditional. You go at your own pace, on your own breath.

VINYASA YOGA

Teachers lead classes that flow from one pose to the next without stopping to talk about the finer points of each pose. That way, students come away with a good workout as well as a yoga experience. If you’re new to yoga, it is a good idea to take a few classes in a slower style of yoga first to get a feel for the poses. Vinyasa flow is really an umbrella term for many other styles. Some studios call it flow yoga, flow-style yoga, dynamic yoga or vinyasa flow. It is influenced by ashtanga yoga.

BIKRAM YOGA

Bikram yoga is the favourite of anyone who loves to sweat. It was created by Indian yogi Bikram Choudhury in the early 1970s. He designed a sequence of 26 yoga poses to stretch and strengthen the muscles as well as compress and “rinse” the organs of the body. The poses are done in a heated room to facilitate the release of toxins. Every bikram class you go to, anywhere in the world, follows the same sequence of 26 poses.

KUNDALINI YOGA

Kundalini yoga was designed to awaken energy in the spine. Kundalini yoga classes include meditation, breathing techniques such as alternate nostril breathing, and chanting, as well as yoga postures.

HATHA YOGA

Hatha yoga really just means the physical practice of yoga (asanas as opposed to, say, chanting). Hatha yoga now commonly refers to a class that is not so flowing and bypasses the various traditions of yoga to focus on the asanas that are common to all. It is often a gentle yoga class.

YIN YOGA

Yin yoga comes from the Taoist tradition and focuses on passive, seated postures that target the connective tissues in the hips, pelvis and lower spine. Poses are held for anywhere between one and 10 minutes. The aim is to increase flexibility and encourage a feeling of release and letting go. It is a wonderful way to learn the basics of meditation and stilling the mind. As such, it is ideal for athletic types who need to release tension in overworked joints, and it is also good for those who need to relax.

RESTORATIVE YOGA

Restorative yoga is all about healing the mind and body through simple poses often held for as long as 20 minutes, with the help of props such as bolsters, pillows and straps. It is similar to yin yoga, but with less emphasis on flexibility and more on relaxing.

JIVAMUKTI YOGA

Founded in 1984 by David Life and Sharon Gannon, Jivamukti means “liberation while living”. This is a vinyasa-style practice with themed classes, often including chanting, music and scripture readings. Jivamukti teachers encourage students to apply yogic philosophy to their daily life.

So there you have it. Hopefully this helps give you a better idea into what is the right yoga for you. A few girls in the Naked Tan office practice a couple of different forms (depending on how they are feeling). Why not try out one you haven’t tried before! Who knows, you might be the next Instagram Yogie extraordinare!

Want radiant, glowing skin? 4 simple tips you can do each night to help give you get a more radiant glow!

How do Victoria Secret models get that radiant glow? Yeah, it is probably the tonne of bronzer, army of award winning make up artists, photo shop and their regimented fitness and eating regimes (…did I mention the photo shop?). But there is nothing sexier than a woman with a beautiful, natural glow to their face. To top that glow off with a gorgeous Naked Tan – you will be an absolute showstopper walking down the street! Below are four simple steps that you can start doing every night before you go to bed to help promote a more gradient glow.

1. AVOID HOT, HOT WATER

We all love a good hot, steamy shower – especially in winter. A steamy shower may feel great, but it’s one of the worst things you can do for your skin. The heat strips essential oils and blood vessels respond by dilating in an effort to cool the skin, causing flushing and ruddiness. When you’re in your 20’s, you can take a hot shower, be red & swollen and recover in an hour, but in your thirties, it may take 2-3 hours. By your 40’s, your skin just doesn’t have the ability to shrink back to its original state so you stay ruddy all the time. We aren’t saying you need to have cold showers in the middle of winter but try and have it as warm/mild as you can handle!

2. MILK, MILK, BABY.

An unusual one but one worth trying out. Milk (yep, as is cows, goats or sheep milk) not only helps reduce dark pigments and spots but also is very nourishing to the skin and works while you sleep. Each night before bed splash a small amount of milk on your face. Massage into your skin using upward strokes, til the milk is totally absorbed by your skin. Wash your face with a mild face wash afterwards (to get rid of any milky smell) and pat dry. We are still trying this one out and are excited to see the results!

3. HAVE A GLASS OF WATER BEFORE BED.

Sometimes during the day we forgot to drink our 8 glasses a day. Getting into the habit of a glass before bed is great routine. Water helps clear the toxins that cause inflammation and blemishes. It also assists in transporting nutrients and oxygen to skin cells, and preventing dehydration, which can cause the appearance of wrinkles. Drinking water can make the skin appear fuller (since the hyaluronic acid that naturally exists in skin will pull in and hold the water for a wrinkle-plumping effect). So for once water bloat is a good thing, right?

4. ENJOY THE ZZZZ’s

We know, you’ve heard it all before, but it’s called beauty sleep for a reason. Sleep deprivation lowers circulation, which is why you look pale and washed out if you only get a few hours. It’s also the best time to rejuvenate your skin. Your body’s cellular renewal team has the night shift, so this is when you want to equip your skin with as many nutrients and hydrating ingredients it needs to do a fine job. So for once someone is telling you to hit snooze and enjoy it!

5 Tips On How To Master A Natural Looking Tan In Winter

winter

We get it, winter can be miserable. It’s cold, rainy and you are lacking any sort of vitamin D. Being constantly covered in turtlenecks, scarves, jackets and boots, your skin can feel dry, pale and unloved. Next thing you know you have a date, work event or engagement party and you realise that your legs will be on display for the first time in months! You know you need some sort of tan but don’t want to go over the top or look like you are obviously wearing fake tan. With everyone else being so pale you feel your usual ‘fake tan routine’ (which you know like the back of your hand because you’ve done it all through the Summer months) might contrast a little too much with everyone else.

Sure, we hear you. Wearing Naked Tan becomes second nature. But you definitely need to adjust your tanning routine depending on the season. The key to a perfect winter tan is to look as natural as possible. Unless you’ve been on a tropical getaway, a Bali-style bronze in the depths of winter will look…odd. Below are a few tips on how to take that Oompa Loompa fear factor away and how to master a natural looking tan in winter.

1. Exfoliate – and exfoliate well.

We aren’t talking about a willy nilly rub over with an exfoliate gel. We mean getting down and dirty in the shower and spending a good 10 minutes with an exfoliation glove and soap body exfoliator. You skin gets so dry in winter, so you want to remove as much dead skin as possible to create an even surface for a smooth application.

2. Shave…

We get it ladies, winter is our time to be lazy (you know you’ve reached a low point when your leg hairs begin to creep out through your stockings!). We’ve all been there. But before you tan make sure you shave those legs and underarms! Again, it provides a smooth application process.

bath

3. Moisture. Moisture. Moisture

We always recommend moisturising after a shower on your hands, elbows, knees and ankles before tanning but in winter it is important to be a little more generous. Your skin becomes very dry in winter and literally drinks up any moisture it is given! After a shower moisturise all over (be generous) and let it sink in before you apply your Naked Tan. This allows for an even, smooth application.

4. Go light or go home.

When tanning start with a small amount and only cover small body surface areas at a time. This way you can control the colour build up. Only do 1 and make sure you are standing in natural light when applying to ensure you can see just how dark your tan is getting. Also avoid applying too much tan on your face. Your face can get very dry in winter and your tan can begin to flake. You can build up your tan on your face using bronzer.

5. Does my tan match these shoes?

This years A/W2015 fashion is so gorgeous – full of loose knits, scarves and monochrome colour palettes. Choose colours to wear that compliment a lovely light glow. Rather than wearing pastels and blacks opt for shades of camels, beige, khaki, slate grey’s and whites that will really make your tan pop.

So there you have it! Hopefully you take a couple of points away from this. We know a tan is an instant confidence booster, so spray tanning all year round is a great solution and following the above tips will ensure your tan game is ON POINT this season!

How to maintain your Naked Tan for longer

Everyone wants beautifully bronzed skin. Naked Tan offers gorgeous products that will help you reach your goal and unleash your inner Goddess.

Use this Step by Step Guide to help you achieve the perfect Naked Tan and maintain beautifully tanned skin for 7 to 10 days.

Step 1 – Exfoliate

The key to achieving the perfect Naked Tan isexfoliator exfoliation. Use Naked Tan’s Body Exfoliator 24 – 48 hours before your Naked Tan spray tan to buff and polish your skin to prepare it for your new tan. In a hot shower or bath, apply a generous amount on your body & massage gently in circular motion. Give your knees, elbows & ankles extra attention and then rinse thoroughly. We recommend using our Body Exfoliator with an exfoliating mitt for best results. If you shave or wax your legs, try to do so at least 24 – 48 hours before your Naked Tan spray tan. Shaving or waxing will streak your fresh tan and may result in a patchy looking tan.

Step 2 – Prepare

Benjamin Franklin once said “By failing to prepare you are preparing to fail.” So on the day of your spray tan be prepared! Avoid wearing moisturiser, deodorant or makeup to your spray tan session, as these may interfere with your tan and prevent it absorbing into the skin.

We also recommend that you don’t wash your hair before your Naked Tan. Conditioner can leave a film over your skin that can make your tan look streaky. Remove all jewellery before your spray tan.

Naked Tan Goddess Crème de la Crème will be applied by your spray tan technician to your hands, feet, elbows and knees prior to your spray tan to ensure an even tan.

For best results ensure you wear loose fitting, dark clothing after your spray tan.

Step 3 – Cleanse

As Naked Tan is a TRUE 2 hour tan, there is no need to wait all day or sleep overnight in your tan. Just 2 hours after your spray tan rinse off your Naked Tan using our Goddess Body Cleanser. Enriched with Aloe Vera, Organic Coconut Oil and Macadamia Oil it will moisturise your skin and care for your tan. Use the Goddess Body Cleanser daily in the shower instead of regular soap to extend the life of your tan.

Step 4 – Moisturise 

To maintain your tan for locremenger, apply Goddess Crème de la Crème daily.

This deeply nourishing Body Butter is made from the finest ingredients: Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter and Aloe Vera. Lavish your entire body with Goddess Crème de la Crème after showering to deeply hydrate & nourish your skin, leaving it silky smooth. Pay extra attention to your knees, elbows & heels. Goddess Crème de la Crème is the perfect everyday body moisturiser to increase the longevity of your tan.

Step 5 – Hydrate

Stay hydrated! In order to have a long lasting tan, ensure that your body is well hydrated by drinking lots of water. Hydrated skin is smoother, so your tan looks better too! It is recommended to drink at least 1 Litre of water every day.

Step 6 – Extend 

For absolute tanning addicts use Goddess Gradual Tan a few days after your spray tan to extend your tan and get a prolonged and even darker colour! Apply 1 coat evenly on your entire body before bed and shower in the morning with Goddess Body Cleanser for a deeper, darker tanning result.

Step 7 – Extend more!

Don’t let anything get in the way of you and your tan! Going away for the weekend or holidays? Keep up your tanning routine even kilometers away from your bathroom with Naked Tan Weekend Essentials and Holidays Essentials.

Get ready for Valentine’s day with Kassi Kashian!

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and is always a time us ladies like to look our best. This post will show you how to nail the perfect tan, a fresh faced make-up look and how to style your hair.

Let’s get started…

THE NIGHT BEFORE: 13/2.
Tanning with Naked Tan 

1. Start by scrubbing off dead skin cells and possibly leftover tan with Goddess Body Exfoliator. Hop in the shower and apply a small amount to appropriate areas. Massage into the skin to leave it feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

 

2. Get out of the shower and dry off. Apply Goddess Creme de la Creme to knees, elbows and ankles to assure the tan doesn’t cling to your dryer areas.

3. Apply Goddess Bronzing Mousse all over the body. Be sure to use a tanning mitt and work in circular motions. This will help the tan to look more even and natural.

4. Put your hairdryer on cold and dry your whole body. Wait 10 minutes before clothing. After a minimum of 2 hours your tan is ready to go. The longer you leave the tan, the more it develops and the darker it will be.

5. Wash off with Goddess Body Cleanser. This product is amazing as it is SLS free and doesn’t strip off your tan like other body washes.

Now your tan is ready to go!

VALENTINE’S DAY: 14/2.
Tan Touch-Up, Make-Up & Hair Styling


TAN TOUCH-UP.
1. Apply Goddess Instant Tan to arms and legs to give an over all glow and colour.
2. Buff in with tanning mitt. This product is also made to moisturise the skin, assuring your mousse tan will last longer!

MAKE-UP.
Considering this is a Valentine’s Day tutorial, I think it is nice to keep it very fresh, dewy and natural. I believe Valentine’s Day suits a very feminine, youthful make-up look and that is what I have created. This look uses very earthy tones and universal colours, assuring it can suit anyone!

1. Complexion… 
– Firstly, cover any redness with green colour correcting concealer from the ‘Corrector Trio’ by Be Coyote.
– Then, cover any darkness (particularly around the eye area) with orange colour correcting concealer from the ‘Corrector Trio’ by Be Coyote.
– Thirdly, buff Nars Sheer Glow foundation into the skin with a buffing brush. I use colour ‘Fiji’, light 5.
– Use Nars Radiant Concealer to cover any blemishes and illuminate under the eyes. I would recommend placing the concealer in a triangle shape to slightly contour the face. This is discussed in a previous blog post. I use colour ‘Custard’, medium 1.
– Dust Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in ‘Dim Light’ all over the face with a large powder brush. This powder will assure you’re make up doesn’t slide off but is also illuminating, adding to that glow.
– Complete your complexion by filling in your brows. I used the Kevyn Aucoyn Brow Pencil in ‘Brunette’ to draw fine individuals hairs and buffed them out with the end of the pencil. I also ran Get Threaded’s ‘Brow-Mazing’ gel through to keep them in place.

 
2. Contouring…
– Using a contouring brush concentrate your bronzer beneath your cheekbones. The right spot can be found by pouting, if it doesn’t appear obvious on its own. Your bronzer should always sit beneath your blush. Pictured below are two brush options I find best. I use Nars ‘Laguna’ bronzer.
– Using your finger tips, work Nars Multiple in ‘Orgasm’ into your cheeks. It is a very natural, dewy flush. Adding to that fresh look.
– Thirdly, using your finger tips, dab Nars Multiple in ‘Copacabana’ at the top of your cheek bones and in a C shape around your brows. In the photo below you can see where the light hits the illuminator.
3. Eyes…
– As a base apply By Terry Ombre Blackstar in ‘Frozen Quartz’ to eyelid. Blend using your finger tips.
– Work Stila ‘Bubbly’ from the ‘In A Good Light’ palette into the base and crease.
– Shade the outer corner of your eyes with ‘Sandstone’ and using your pinky finger dab ‘Kitten’ into the inner corners of your eyes.
– Beneath your brows, tidy up with ‘Bare’.
– Press the Stila Stay All Day liner in ‘Intense Black’ along your lash line. Keep the line as thin as possible. This will assure your lash line looks thicker, however still maintaing that natural look.
– Finally curl lashes with Kevyn Aucoyn lash curler and apply multiple generous coats of Revlon’s ‘Grow Luscious’ mascara. This mascara is amazing as it separates each lash individual, whilst still giving them volume and fullness.

 

 

4. Lips…
– Outline lips using Nars ‘Mysterious Red’. This lip pencil is part of the Velvet Matte range, meaning that it goes on rather creamy then sets to become a matte. A matte is a smart choice for Valentine’s Day as it is less likely to shift or transfer, assuring you have flawless lips all night. It also only seemed fitting to use a red on the lips as it is the colour of love.
– Apply a coat of Too Faced ‘Extreme Lip Injection’ on top to add fullness and sheen. This lipgloss is made to plump the lips and gives them a slight tingle.
And there you have it… A flawless, natural Valentine’s Day make-up look!
HAIR STYLING.
It is important to embrace your looks and personality on Valentine’s Day so keeping the hair bouncy and fun is always a good idea. I decided to curl my hair and allowed the curls to drop naturally and frame my face.
1. Heat curling stick to 180 degrees, the prime temperature for styling hair.
2. Wrap small sections of the hair around the stick, away from the face.
3. Hold each section from approximately 10 seconds before releasing.
4. Spray hair with a low-hold hairspray and comb out with fingers.
Here is the final look…
Thank you all for reading and I hope to see photos of this look on Valentine’s Day. If you have any questions feel free to contact me on one of my social media pages. Enjoy the festival of love!

Our December Goddess of the Month is Natalie Roser

Both Model and Photographer for many years, Natalie Roser is the kind of girl that has it all. Friendly, creative and beautiful, Naked Tan wanted to meet with this incredible Goddess and ask her a few questions about her news and career.
IMG_0867_a_-web

NT: How did you originally get into modelling? And what drove you to pursue this career?

NR: In 2003, when I was only 13 and never even considered modelling as a possibility, my mum entered me in to the Girlfriend Magazine Model search competition. I was so shocked when Mum told me that I had been invited down to the next level of the competition where I place as a NSW finalist and was picked up by leading modelling agency, Chic. At 13, modelling was far from my mind, but I easily fell in to it and absolutely loved it. I developed a passion for the industry that has only grown with time, which I think has helped me get to where I am today.

NT: You were recently on a modelling show called The Face Australia which was created by Naomi Campbell, and Cheyenne Tozzi was your mentor. How was this experience for you?

NR: Even now The Face seems like a surreal experience. It was like nothing I have ever experience before and allowed me to really test myself. It was quite an emotional journey without contact to the outside world. I became very involved with what was going on in the show, just like all the other girls were, so emotions and nerves were constantly high.

I made some incredible friends over those few weeks though and ‘Team Cheyenne’ are still all really close and we catch up and support each other regularly.

Meeting Naomi, Cheyenne and Nicole was incredible and I consider myself very lucky to be involved in the competition.

NT: You are both a professional model and a professional photographer. How has the knowledge of being behind the camera helped you to improve your model role?

NR: As a photographer, I learnt a lot about lighting and the effect different light can have on a model or subject in front of the camera. This has definitely helped me with my modelling as I am aware of how a studio set works and how the light will make my body and face look. It also helps with knowing what pose is best, and what direction is best to face. All in all, the more time I spend on set on either side of the camera, the better I get at both.

For me it all came down to practice in the beginning, and becoming aware of the environment you’re in and equipment you are working with. A good model knows her angles, and better model knows her lighting as well.

NT: As a photographer, if you were to work with any model who would it be and why?

NR: I love to work with young, fresh faces who are new to modelling and take direction well. Modelling is really exciting and fun, and when you have the opportunity to work in a creative environment it should be positive and fun! So I love the energy that young, aspiring models bring to a shoot. It may just be nerves or beginners luck, but I always get great shots from new models.
IMG_1746cweb1-666x1024
NT: Do you have any tips for aspiring models and photographers wanting to get into the business?

NR: My biggest tips would be to practice, be professional and use your network. Practice is probably the best piece of advice I could give, as it helps you prepare for any situation and you become more comfortable with what you’re doing. Modelling and photography are very similar to me. They both require dedication and the more you do it, the better you will get. The more photos you take, the better your images you will get, and the more you stand in front of a camera, the more comfortable you become and then you will move better.

NT: You like to stay fit and healthy; do you have any tips for a healthy lifestyle?

NR: My top tip for maintaining a healthy lifestyle would simply be to not cheat. Be aware of what you’re eating and know your healthy alternatives. I used to be obsessed with full-cream milk and dairy products, and would have so much milk in a day it was getting ridiculous. Now I have found an alternative in almond milk and have cut my dairy intake back to a regular amount. It’s little trades like that, which will really make a difference and soon you wont even miss what you were originally craving.

NT: Naked Tan’s new Mantra is ‘You deserve it!’ because we think every woman deserves to feel beautiful. What is the main motivational quote or mantra that you live by?

NR: “Planning prevents poor performance”

My dad says this over and over to me and my brother so now it is always in my head, which actually helps me in making sure I stay on top of my business plans. It also helps me make sure I am prepared for my crazy days where I have one million places to be, with several different outfits throughout the day.

NT: You have experienced a Naked Tan spray tan in Exotic colour. What did you think of the Naked Tan experience and the result colour?

NR: I am so pleased with the colour of my tan! I received several compliments on it the day after my spray on a photoshoot. The colour looked natural and gave my skin that extra touch of colour to help me look healthy and glowing.

NT: Do you use Naked Tan retail products before and after your spray tans to ensure it lasts for longer?

NR: Naked Tan have such a great range of products to use before and after my tan so of course I use them to use to ensure my tan is long lasting.

NT: What is your favourite Naked Tan product?

NR: I love the Naked Tan cleanser that doesn’t strip the tan colour off when using it in the shower. Its such a great product idea and allows me to feel clean and fresh and still maintain my tan! It also smells like summer, which is a plus.

Thank you Natalie, you are a true Naked Tan Goddess!

If you do not have time to duck in your favourite salon for your weekly Naked Tan spray tan, or if you are always on the go, we recommend that you use the Goddess Self Tan or Goddess Bronzing Mousse. All you have to do is rub it into your skin and wash it off two hours later with Goddess Body Cleanser. Professional looking result guarranteed!

Want an even deeper tan? Use Goddess Gradual Tan daily to deepen your skin colour. For tanning addicts only!

Naked Tan October Goddess of the month is Ruby Golani

Presenter, Youtube Beauty Vlogger, makeup Demonstrator & Entrepreneur, Ruby Golani is one of these incredible young women everyone wants to hear about!

Naked Tan wanted to know more about Ruby this month and made her Naked Tan October Goddess of the Month!

NT: You initially started studying a double degree of Science and Commerce. How did you end up working as a Beauty Advisor and Makeup Artist?

RG: I couldn’t get a job in my field. They wanted someone with experience and I didn’t have any! I ended up applying for a promotions agency specialising in Cosmetics and Fragrances. I’d go into the department stores and help counters meet their budgets. The department stores both saw my potential and both David Jones and MYERS offered me a position. I’ve had the privilege of working for cosmetic giants such as Revlon, L’Oreal, Benefit and Guerlain (LVMH).

I’m still studying. I believe having a formal education is really important but, during my time at David Jones and MYER, I had the pleasure of meeting so many women. I had the opportunity to make women feel beautiful. I love it! I knew I’d never be working in a lab or sit behind a desk.

NT: How did you get the idea to start creating makeup tutorial videos on Youtube?

RG: One thing that I disliked about working for a particular counter is that I always had to endorse only that brand. A lady would come in asking about under eye concealers and correctors for example. I knew that the other brands had a much better product, so I’d tell customers to try another counter. I didn’t care about meeting my budget any more, I just wanted to help people and that didn’t really sit well with the people upstairs- so I resigned and started working really hard on my blog/vlog after uni. Best life decision!

NT: What do you like most about beauty and being a Beauty Vlogger?

RG: Everyday is different. I’m working on different videos, attending events, meetings, launches. It’s so much fun but it is hard work. Some days are 14-hour days but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love being my own boss!

NT: How do you feel your videos help empowering women?

RG: I had really bad self-esteem issues in high school. I’ve had acne since starting high school and it was tough to feel beautiful, I also wanted to wear makeup and didn’t know how to apply it. Some days I’d go to school and my foundation wasn’t blended properly. All the guys an girls made fun of that. Showing my bare face with no makeup on my YouTube channel was one of the toughest things I’ve ever done but I know it helped so many women and men too!

NT: You have attended Naked Tan’s new retail launch breakfast at Pier One Hotel in September. What did you like most?

RG: It was such a fun event and really engaging too. I loved my styling session. I’m usually in black and being told what colours I should rock and wear this summer was really helpful. I’ve added some blue pieces to my wardrobe since then.

NT: You have been able to trial NEW Naked Tan Goddess Retail Line in exclusivity. Which product is your favourite?

RG: I love the Goddess Bronzing Mousse! Since receiving samples of Naked Tan products from the event, I’ve been tanned with a natural looking glow. I’m pretty fair and it’s the most natural tan I’ve tried and while the tan is wearing off, it still look great!

NT: What is your morning beauty routine? How would you incorporate Naked Tan products into it?

RG: Most mornings I apply an SPF 30 moisturiser or BB cream, a bit of mascara and lippy. When I’ve tanned the night before, I like to start my mornings by showering and locking in the moisture with the Goddess Crème De La Crème. It smells like a tropical holiday! And if I’m tanning on the day, I’ll use majority of the products. This includes the Goddess Body Cleanser, Bronzing Mousse, and then the Crème De La Crème. All the products compliment each other so well!

Thank you so much Ruby! You’re a true Goddess 🙂

RG: Thank you for a lovely event. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting you all xx

Naked Tan September Goddess of the month is the stunning Laura Wells!

Full time plus size model for over 6 years with BGM Models, Laura Wells is this type of woman everyone thinks of being the definition of an absolute goddess.

Recently seen in the fashion pages of Cosmopolitan, modelling for brands such as American Eagle or Swimsuit for all and on the cover of Spanish Yo Magazine, Laura has given Naked Tan some of her precious time to answer a few questions and get us to know why she is a true goddess!

You are BGM Models superstar

Laura-1-796x1024

modelling for international magazine covers and fashion brands. How did it all start?

I fell into modeling. It was never a dream or a passion. It was originally my younger sisters profession. She was a straight size size 8 model who had worked for some of the biggest brands in Australia and overseas. While i was in New York with her I was approached a few times and asked if I was a plus size model. I had no idea plus modeling existed let alone did I want to be one. I was studying a science degree and a law degree at the time and could think of nothing else but becoming a scientist and wearing a lab coat. Not exactly a fashion statement!

Once I returned back to Australia I was approached again and it was my mum that told me to ring the agency BGM Models. I had a meeting and was signed and started working a few weeks later. It wasn’t until I finished my degrees though that I started modelling full time as I had the time to give it a go.

You are helping to raise awareness for a positive image of women’s bodies in magazines. Do you think that people’s vision of the ‘perfect bikini body’ has changed?

Yes definitely! You can see that the change has started in the media as more and more plus size models are seen in covers and fashion stories. Super skinny models are not always what people want to see in media anymore. We’re coming back to the curvaceous model like we used to in the 60’s and 70’s which portrays a more healthy representation of society.

You will be staring in the documentary ‘A Perfect 14’ which aims to reshape the fashion industry and the views of society on women’s body. How do you feel that this will bring both the media and the general public’s attention to the issue of what the size of a model should be?

b0bfe6b6-3573-4a19-a6f4-4b85765d3374

This documentary is fabulous because it will highlight some parts of the industry that we are working on. People usually have a wrong idea of a plus size model thinking of an extra large shape when in face plus models are actually average sized women. There is a huge disparity between what a plus size model is within the industry and what a plus size person is in reality.

Your body was used to be the model for the lingerie mannequins in the department stores of Myer and David Jones. How was this experience for you?

This was so much fun! They took photos and measurements of my body to create a more realistic size mannequin for lingerie. A larger more curvaceous woman’s shape to accurately portray the lingerie they are selling! It was a little surreal to be standing next to a mannequin that is exactly like me.

Do you have any advice for someone wanting to get into the modelling industry but lacking of confidence?

When I started modelling I wasn’t overly confident with my body and shape, however as I worked more I began to see how I moved, what looked good and grow to love my body for what it could do. You really need to be confident in your body if you want to become a model or you won’t be able to sell garments as this is seen in your expression. Photos are the reflection of the way you feel. If you feel beautiful, photos will be beautiful.

Also, practising definitely helps. By practising, you’ll find out what poses look best, you’ll end up knowing your body shape and be confident in front of a crew full of people you don’t know!

Do you have any role model, someone that inspires you?

David Attenborough! I love his work and how he fights to increase awareness about the environment.

I am involved with Green Peace and have worked with them on a few campaigns. Environment is a priority for me. I have an Environmental Science degree and a huge passion for nature. My boyfriend and I actually run our own environmental group in Cronulla called The Ocean Ambassadors. We do beach clean ups every Sunday in Cronulla to remove litter and plastic off the beach so it doesn’t enter the ocean.

Do you have any special routine before a photo shoot?

I usually have a spray-tan before a photo shoot to make sure I have beautiful bronzed skin as I do a lot of swimwear and lingerie work. I moisturise every day and drink plenty of water to keep hydrated and make sure my skin is in the best condition.

I also make sure I’ve got clean hair, have a manicure & pedicure and pack my model bag with necessities for the day ahead!

What did you think of your first Naked Tan spray tan experience?

I absolutely loved it. It is definitely the best colour I’ve ever had! Usually, photographers are not big fans of spray tans as they think it makes the model’s skin look orange. Naked Tan comes up beautifully on screen and gives a really nice natural glow.

What is your favourite Naked Tan retail product?

I love the Body scrub! I love the fact that the scrub is made of Walnut shell and does not contain micro-beads, plastic ingredients like some other body scrub. Plus it smells amazing!

September Goddess of the Month Claire Parker

Meet Claire Parker, 24 year old model and actor from Sydney, Australia. A rising star that has taken 2015 by the horns. She recently competed in the 2015 Antler Miss Universe Australia competition and has just been crowned Miss Grand Australia 2015. She is ambitious, savvy, fun and most importantly a down to earth – lover of life. We sat down and had a chat with Claire to get a snippet into her life, what motivates her and to get some advice on how to crack the modelling world!

1) How would your best friend describe you?

I’d say my best friends would describe me as a big goof ball haha! That I’m the kind of person who’s always up for an adventure, always smiling and though I work hard and have big dreams, I never take life or myself too seriously. I have a big heart and always look out for the people I love and I’m weirdly obsessed with cats! Hahaha!

2) When do you feel most confident?

When I’m looking and feeling my best and feel prepared for the situation I’m in. There’s nothing worse than being thrown in the deep end and feeling completely unprepared for what lies ahead!

3) You recently competed in the Antler Miss Universe Australia 2015 contest – what was the one thing you walked away from learning about yourself?

This was the second time I’d competed for the Miss Universe Australia crown (the first was in 2011), and I think the most important thing I learned was to just have fun with it and not take it too seriously. I know I can sometimes get so set on things it’s hard to step back and look at situations objectively, but just being realistic about the competition and knowing that while only one girl will win, there’s still so many amazing opportunities and experienced that can be gained from partaking made it a much more enjoyable experience for me!

4) How did you control your nerves in such a publicized event like that?

To be honest I’ve always loved being on stage and being in the spotlight haha I was apparently a very attention seeking child! So I really love getting on stage and performing! The thing is in competitions like that, you only really get one chance while you’re on the stage to show the audience and the judges who you are, so despite how nervous you may be, you’ve just got to push it aside and give it all you’ve got! Fake it til you make it!

5) You are in such great shape and have a beautiful glow about you. What’s your day to day routine with diet and exercise and what are some tips you can give the Naked Tan girls about how to maintain a healthy diet?

Thank you so much! I think it’s important to be realistic about what is and isn’t achievable in terms of diet and exercise and not try to be too strict on yourself or you won’t be able to maintain it! I am an ambassador for F45 training in Sydney so I train there 4-5 times a week which keeps me really fit and strong, plus the workouts are only 45 minutes long so you get in, smash it out, get out and continue with your day! I really thrive on sunshine and fresh air too, especially now that spring has begun! So I like to go for walks as often as I can, I find them very therapeutic and help keep my mind clear and focused! As far as diet, I try to keep it roughly 80/20 of good foods and ‘naughty’ foods. I am admittedly extremely in love with ice cream so it’s not unheard of for me to splurge on that from time to time! I figure all things in moderation, as long as you’re predominantly eating healthy and staying active there’s no harm in treating yourself sometimes, life is meant to be enjoyed after all!

6) To those wanting to break into the modelling world – what’s the one piece of advice you would give them?

Persevere, persevere, persevere. The Modelling industry is very ruthless and you will hear ‘no’ more times than you hear ‘yes’, I guarantee it. If you give up after your first ‘no’ you are guaranteed never to get anywhere, you just have to shrug it off and keep trying. I was modelling freelance for 5 years before I signed with my agency now and over the course of that time, had 3 separate interviews with them before they decided to sign me. The girls who get scouted on the street and become overnight sensations are one in a million and everyone else is grinding hard day in, day out to make it, so never give up because ultimately hard work is what pays off.

7) When do you wear fake tan and why do you wear it?

As often as I can get away with haha! I am vehemently against solariums and am very conscious of sun safety, but am unfortunately not blessed with naturally tanned skin so fake tanning suits me just fine!

8) What’s your favourite Naked Tan product?

I adore the Naked Tan Goddess Crème de la Crème. I use it even when I don’t have tan on! It’s so moisturizing and I feel it really absorbs into my skin.

Our August Goddess of the Month Miss World Australia finalist Kassandra Kashian!

 

Kassandra Aug Goddess

19, makeup artist and business student, the beautiful Kassandra Kashian is now a finalist of the Miss World Australia 2014 competition! Naked Tan has met with this incredible goddess and will be sponsoring her during the competition!

How did you get the idea to enter the Miss World Australia competition?

Last year I participated in the reality show ‘Beauty and the Geek’ and since then I have been studying business full time and working as a makeup artist and skin care specialist part time. This year I wanted to try something different, challenge myself and have new experiences. I applied for Miss World Australia as I was drawn to the charity work that was involved with the competition. I feel so blessed to lead such a privileged life so I love to give back to those less fortunate than myself.

You are currently involved in doing charity work for Variety Australia, which helps to raise funds for kids who are either sick, disadvantaged or have special needs, by selling some of your clothes at markets. How do you feel this helps raising awareness for a great cause?

I have always been involved in charity and always feel as though if I do my part to help others I am making a difference in the world. It is a very personal thing to sell your clothes, as I was handing over each garment I couldn’t help but to think of the memories than belonged with them. It was then that a more important thought came to me, hopefully the memories these garments would now hold for the new buyers would be of the cause they were purchased for. I thought this was a unique way of creating awareness for Variety and to my delight it raised over $700.

What qualities do you possess that you believe can help make you win the Miss World Australia Competition?

The Miss World Australia competition judges its contestants over a range of different challenges. It gives me confidence as I appreciate being examined in different areas I feel passionate about. I believe my modelling and acting background and past experiences of featuring in mainstream media will help to prepare me for some of the tasks we will be judged on. I believe my love for exercising and healthy living will assist me in the fitness components of the competition. I believe my genuine and empathetic nature will help me to stand out. Most importantly, I hope the initiative, creativity and passion I have applied to my fundraising efforts will be recognised. I have put my heart and soul into this journey and am so grateful to have had this experience.

Your talent for the Miss World Australia Competition is acting where you will be doing a monologue called ‘Tassie Surfers’ by Ken Friedman. What made you choose this monologue over others and how do you feel like you connect to it?

I really enjoy to act and become different characters. I love suprising people with the different accents I can do and personalities I can portray. I thought doing a monologue would showcase these talents of mine and would differentiate me as no one else is doing a monologue. I also want to be able to show a different side of my personality. I have chosen this particular monologue as it is a comedy piece that will hopefully have the audience laughing.

What is your life motto?

Everything happens for a reason. I think we, as humans, tend to worry too much about every little thing that goes on in our lives. I think when we step back and look at the bigger picture we recognise that bad times always pass and good times are right around the corner. We have to experience both sides of everything to feel true happiness and become who we are meant to be.

How long have you been using Naked Tan?

I have been using Naked Tan since I was 14! I LOVE Naked Tan spray tan! I love the colour, the smell and the fact that I don’t have to wait 8 hours to get ready. I hate sleeping in my tan, Naked Tan is so convenient. And I always have beautiful compliments every time I have a Naked Tan spray tan.

How are you getting ready for the Miss World Australia finals on the 27th July?

I have been preparing since the state finals! Since then I am trying to go to the gym 5 times per week, eating healthy food, practicing my monologue every day and focusing a lot of time on my charity work and charity event preparations.

I also have to start picking the dresses and shoes I will be wearing. This requires a lot of fittings and planning.

On the first day of the finals, Pru from Adore Nails and Beauty tanning will be coming to spray me with Naked Tan spray tan. I’ll then be tanned and ready!

It is all planned; I just can’t wait to get there! I always feel very confident when I have a Naked Tan spray tan on.
