"What should I do about my Tan Lines??"
Try to get some naked sun time everyday! I’ve found that even 15-30 minutes a day (1/2 the time face up, 1/2 face down) can minimize or eliminate tan lines in a week or 2 (depending on how fast you tan). You can go slow- the more you plan ahead the better (but remember this option is weather permitting). Oh and always cover your face/neck/chest for anti-aging protection!
I’m not a big fan of sunless tanner because it’s usually orangey and hard to predict how it’s going to turn out and the last thing I want is for you to have pictures where you're orange and streaky and don’t feel like yourself. Some studios can do a really good job at giving you a natural looking sunless tan. If you have experience with a salon that produces tried and true results then maybe this would be a good option... otherwise don't risk experimenting.
If we're not taking nude photos, an easy solution is to wear lingerie and swimwear that is the same cut and shape as your tan lines.
Also, our pro MUA is good at working her makeup magic on *small problem areas.
Lastly, there’s always good ole Photoshop. This is the last resort because it can be extremely time consuming to edit tan lines in post.
It’s great that you’re thinking about this now. Just do the best you can… because tan lines happen. I am confidant that we can produce flattering images whichever route we go. The best choice is to use the time that we have to prepare and plan ahead of time.
