HOW DOES SPRAY TANNING WORK?
Dihydroxyacetone, or DHA, is the main active ingredient in a spray tan. Naturally derived from sugar cane, it creates colour when it comes in contact with the amino acids found in your skin’s surface cells. The DHA (sugars) react with the proteins on your skin to create a tanned, natural brown colour, similar to an apple being cut open.
IS SPRAY TANNING SAFE?
YES. It is MUCH safer than exposing your skin to the sun’s rays, and you still get that great tanned look. DHA has been approved by the FDA for use in the personal care industry for over 30 years. No adverse affects have been reported other than minor skin irritations on allergic people. Allergic reactions are extremely rare and if you have experienced allergic reactions to self-tanning or other beauty products please arrange a skin patch test first with your therapist. Compared to UV rays, which are linked to a host of adverse reactions that range from faster ageing to skin cancer, sunless tanning is healthier and more effective.

WHAT ARE THE SPRAY TAN EXTRAS?
HOW MANY DAYS BEFORE MY EVENT SHOULD I BOOK MY TAN?
It's best to get a spray tan 1-3 days before your event. This allows time for your tan to fully develop and gives you time to have two rinses in between the tan application and the event. This allows you to fully remove all trace of the bronzers from your skin. The bronzers are used in the solution as a guide colour so I know where to spray (the active ingredient is clear). Two rinses removes all the bronzer from your skin and leaves you with a healthy glow that won't rub off on your clothing!
DO YOU TRAVEL?
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK?
As soon as possible to avoid missing out. I take bookings up to one year in advance.
HOW LONG WILL MY APPOINTMENT TAKE?
Please allow up to an hour for your appointment, most will take around 45 minutes.
HOW LONG BEFORE MY WEDDING DO YOU RECOMMEND HAVING A TRIAL?
I usually recommend around a month out, however it's a great idea to have it done on the day of another event! Why not kill two birds and have your trial the same day as your Hens or Engagement Photoshoot, if you're having one!
WILL MY MAKEUP LAST ALL DAY AND HOW CAN I RETOUCH MY LIPSTICK?
With any makeup application service Jess provides a free sample of the lipstick used so that you are able to reapply if needed throughout the day or evening.
WHAT BRAND OF MAKEUP DO YOU USE?
My kit consist of 90% high end products such as MAC, Nars, Anastasia Beverly Hills, YSL, Jeffree Star, Kat Von D, Dose of Colours, Napoleon, Tarte, and many more. I also love some of the cheaper drugstore brands - when quality isn't compromised for price it's a win, win for all!
DO YOU RECOMMEND A SPRAY TAN?
It is not essential that you get a spray tan for your event, but it can look gorgeous when done by a professional. If you haven’t had a spray tan before, I would recommend a trial before your event to ensure you are happy with the end result. I am very particular with spray tans (being extremely pale myself) and have tried them all, you can rest assured The Glow Getter uses the best products available on the market!
DO YOU RECOMMEND EYELASH EXTENSIONS?
WHAT SHOULD I BRING/WEAR TO MY MAKEUP TRIAL?
Photos of makeup looks you like
Photos of the hairstyle you’ll be having
Photos similar to your bouquet colourings
Photos or fabric samples of yours and your bridesmaid(s) dresses
Wear a plain white top (if you are wearing white on your wedding day)
Bring a camera so you can see what your makeup looks like in photos
WHAT ARE THE EXTRAS?
I HAVE SENSTIVE EYES, CAN I STILL GET LASH EXTENSIONS?
Yes as eyelash extensions are applied to the natural lash never touching the skin. However, in extreme cases reactions can occur. If you have concerns please get in contact.
CAN THE EYELASH EXTENSIONS BE REMOVED?
Yes, at any time for any reason they can be removed however there will be a removal charge of $25 if they haven't been applied by The Glow Getter - Beauty + Glow Bar.
I HAD LASH EXTENSIONS APPLIED SOMEWHERE ELSE AND I AM UNHAPPY WITH THEM, CAN THEY BE FIXED BY YOU?
HOW ARE THE EYELASH EXTENSIONS APPLIED?
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CLASSIC, HYBRID & VOLUME?
This has only been made possible thanks to recent technological advancements in the lash extensions manufacturing process, which has enabled manufacturers to create super light and super fine extensions. In fact, these extensions are so light, that 4 x 0.07 thickness (4D Russian Volume Lashes) extensions put together weigh less than 1 x 0.15 thickness (Standard Classic Lash) extension on it own.
The method for applying these super light extensions is by creating a fan consisting of anywhere from two to six extensions that are then carefully attached to a single natural lash. This technique allows for a whopping 600 or more extensions to be applied per eye and gives an incredibly dense and lush look. The best part is, because they’re so light you’re hardly able to feel you’re wearing any eyelash extensions at all!

2. Don't use mascara; instead, use Coating Sealant.
3. Sleep on your back.
4. Use oil-free cleansing products.
5. Brush them morning and night.
6. Have a top up every 2-3 weeks.
HOW LONG UNTIL YOU CAN SHOWER AFTER LASH EXTENSIONS?
HOW LONG DO EYELASH EXTENSIONS LAST?
Approximately 4-6 weeks if you respect your new lashes and take care of them. A real lash’s life cycle is around 25-28 days, and as yours grow and fall out so will the synthetic ones that are attached. Your life style and what work you do will also make a difference how long they last. A babe working in the food industry where there is a lot of heat, steam and oil may find they don't last as well as a babe who works in an air conditioned office.
