Gigi Hadid swears by one key product: Charlotte Tilbury Supermodel BodyВ ($65). вЂњIt's the best tanning glow for your skin,вЂќ she told Elle.com. вЂњIt's just a little bit of color, a little bit of glow. It highlights in all the right places, and it's great.вЂќMichael Kovac/Getty
When Julianne Hough told us her entire everyday beauty routine, we zeroed in on one particular product: Pretty Peaushun Skin Tight Body LotionВ ($29). вЂњIt's perfect because it's not too much color-you don't feel like you're caking on a big-time self-tanner,вЂќ she explains. вЂњIt's just something I'll put it on that morning before getting dressed, and it washes off at night. It comes in four different colors. And it's really dewy. It leaves your skin feeling really glowy and fresh. I'm obsessed with it.вЂќ Something tells us we'll be obsessed tooвЂ¦
Everyone-including Kylie Jenner-knows that when you get a spray tan, it fades on your face first. Thus, she told Cosmopolitan that she carries around Suvara Spray On Sun Bronzing Spray in Medium to DarkВ ($35) to keep her complexion consistent. вЂњYou spray it, leave it overnight, and it makes your face tan again,вЂќ she explained.
To accentuate your glowing skin Victoria's Secret Angel style, channel Jasmine Tookes and layer your products. вЂњBefore hitting the beach, I always make sure to use sunscreen, and then to have a nice glow, I like to use Nars MonoГЇ Body Glow ($59) on top,вЂќ she told us exclusively. вЂњIt gives you that perfect sun-kissed bronze skin!вЂќJamie McCarthy/Getty
Karlie Kloss told us she thinks body bronzer is вЂњkey,вЂќ whether you're out with your girlfriends or just want an instant tan. The one she swears by? Victoria's Secret Instant Bronzing Tinted Body Spray. It's sold out for now, but try James Read Instant Bronzing Mist($38) or L'OrГ©al ParisВ Sublime ProPerfect Salon Airbrush Self-Tanning MistВ ($10) for a similar effect.Getty/JB Lacroix
Australian It girl Lara Bingle is the queen of bronzed skin, and her tips are simple: Moisturize daily, rub a lemon over any streaks to fade them (buff the area with a damp towel), and do everything else first. вЂњIf you need to get a wax or a manicure, touch up your hair color, or shave your legs, do it before applying any self-tanner because all of those treatments can remove it!вЂќ she said.

Byrdie contributor Lindsay Ellingson has walked many a runway for Victoria's Secret and knows a thing or two about looking like a beach goddess under a time crunch. She told us all the Angels get slathered by the brand's Beach Sexy Tinted Body Lotion, which вЂњhas a little bit of shimmer in it.вЂќ But that's not it-she also uses the Instant Bronzing Shimmer on top of the lotion. вЂњIt's a thick puff that has shimmer powder inside of it,вЂќ she says. вЂњIt's not like major, in-your-face glitter; it's just very natural. It looks sun-kissed.вЂќ
Ed. note: Both products are no longer available, but try Urban Decay's Naked Skin One and Done $36, and layer the brand's Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder for Face and Body, $34, on top.Getty/Dimitrios Kambouris
When bronze goddess J.Lo mentions products she likes, we're still all ears, and one of those products is Scott Barnes Body Bling ($42), a tinted body lotion. She told Allure, вЂњI occasionally do a self-tanner, but I hadn't in a long time. I did one right before the Golden Globes, but otherwise, I hadn't done it in five years. Usually, I just wear Body Bling.вЂќ
