Early yesterday morning, Golden Globes co-host Amy Poehler participated in a typically Hollywood activity: the spray tan. First, using a body polish to wash away dry skin, and any leftover oil and lotions, the actress prepped for the arrival of Fiona Locke, St. Tropez's Skin Finishing Expert. "I wanted to give her a golden, glowy look," Locke told the Cut, mixing a solution specifically for Poehler (she also created tints for Sienna Miller, Kelly Osbourne, Carla Gugino, and Connie Britton) — its results similar to the brand's Bronzing Mousse. "She's going to have three costume changes with one that shows off some leg and I didn't want her to have to worry about, What will my legs look like?"
As soon as the twenty-minute-long session was over, Poehler quickly changed into a loose-fitting, dark cotton dress and was out the door for rehearsals. "It's best to not shower up to eight hours after a spray tan," Locke said; once Poehler did, "the top bronzing layer will have washed off and revealed a gradually grown tan that will last into the next week as long as she keeps her skin hydrated."
our best friend the peppy comedienne got a basic, even tan, Locke is also able to enhance and contour muscles for the red carpet — particularly the arms. To try this at home, she suggests standing in front of a mirror and applying a second layer of One Night Only Instant Glow Body Lotion in the shadows of your flexed arm to appear more toned. For red-carpet-ready, glowing boobs, Locke sent a bottle of Skin Illuminator to Poehler's makeup artist to be used on décolletage.
