Choosing the right tone for your spray tan might be confusing at first. But at Verdana, we can make it simple for you.

Choosing the Right Spray Tan Color for Your Skin Tone

Which spray tan tone is right for me? What if I don’t pick the right one? These are common things to ask — so don’t worry if they cross your mind.

The perfect spray tan tone is easier to find than you might think. Here’s how to get the perfect look.

If you naturally tend to burn and then turn slightly tan, we recommend going 2-3 shades darker than your natural skin tone for a more even tan.

  1. Light Skin Tone — Choose 2-3 shades darker than your natural skin tone.
  2. Medium Skin Tone — You should choose a shade 1-2 shades darker than your natural skin tone.
  3. Medium to Dark Skin Tone — Opt for a shade 1 or 2 shades lighter than your natural skin tone.
  4. Dark Skin Tone — Choose a shade 1-2 shades lighter than your natural skin tone.

Common Mistakes When Choosing Spray Tone

Here are the most common mistakes:

  1. Too Dark of a Spray Tan — This can make you look dirty or streaked when wearing your favorite clothes. If the color is too dark, it will not fade evenly, which means that you are stuck with your spray tan until it naturally fades in 4-7 days.
  2. Too Light of a Spray Tan—  This can make you look ill or washed out. There is a huge difference between a color that will fade naturally and a color that looks more like a self-tanner.
  3. Incorrect Skin Tone— This is the most common mistake. People might look great in their regular color, which is different from the spray tan color given.
  4. Wrong Ingredients— Certain ingredients can make your skin appear darker or lighter (even when using a bronzing solution).
