Organic Airbrush Tanning
official sponsor of the mrs. south carolina america pageant. if you would like to view our pageant airbrush tans, please refer to our pageant page.
with 13+ years of experience, our master airbrush artist, and owner of browning studio, Brandi has mastered the art of airbrush tanning, trained in Los angeles, and taught the best team of artists in the business. our artists travels nation wide for National and International Pageant Systems and are absolute masters in their craft.
Our solution is 100% organic, paraben free, made in the USA, never tested on animals, and does not have an unpleasant after scent, allowing you to return to work without being stinky! Your airbrush color is customized to match your skin type, your needs, your preferences, and Most importantly, you are NEVER orange. Body contouring is also included to emphasize your super sweet body shape. Hands & feet are detailed to ensure perfect, natural looking results.
- shower, shave, & exfoliate your skin the night or morning before your appointment. exfoliation of previous airbrush tan is recommended before you attend your next airbrush service.
- you are able to wear deodorant, although some chemicals can cause a green tint, but this is rare. If a green tint does appear, it should wash away after your first shower. browning studio does offer a chemical free deodorant that actually works. ask if interested.
- wear or bring dark, loose shirt & long, loose pants for after your airbrush appointment.
-please avoid jeans, socks, & tennis shoes.
- if there is a chance of rain on the day of your appointment, you will want to wear (or bring) long, loose fitting clothing and closed toe shoes (no socks).
- you will also need to bring an umbrella. you CAN NOt get wet until after the curing time of your airbrush tan is complete.
- hair removal, mani/pedi, & hair appointments should all be done before your airbrush tan.
- wait at least 24 hours after a lash lift to get an airbrush tan.
- body waxing appointments are recommended to be at least a day before your airbrush, to avoid any wax residue messing with the application.
- you will need to avoid moisturizers & oils if any appointment is the same day as your airbrush, otherwise they may act as a barrier to the solution.
before your first shower
- the drying/curing time varies on which solution you have used.
- The custom browning solution will need at least 8 hours.
- the rapid browning solution will need at least 4 hours.
- avoid jeans, (bra, if possible), socks, & tennis shoes after your airbrush tan.
- avoid sweat or any liquid touching your skin. make sure that you do not have any sports activities or exercise planned for the rest of the day, or until after your first shower.
- you should not expose your palms (no touchy touchy!) to the solution until your first shower.
- if you will be sleeping in your airbrush, wear long, loose fitting clothing.
- use caution with the palms of your hands.
- avoid: try to avoid hot tubs, chlorinated pools & warm baths. this will cause the tan to come off sooner than expected. if these can not be avoided, no worries! make sure to keep your skin moisturized immediately following the hot tubs and pools.
- moisturize: Moisturize directly after first shower to lock in moisture. you will want to moisturize your skin daily - using a great quality daily moisturizer is important to avoid dry skin, which may lead to uneven fading of the skin. please avoid petroleum or alcohol based lotions (anything with a heavy perfume). ask us if you are unsure about your current moisturizer. we carry an organic moisturizer that works incredible with our solutions.
- consistent color: if you want to have a consistent tan, once a week appointments are suggested.

what people are saying:
"first of all, brandi made me feel right at home. she is the utmost professional artist but so down to earth and sweet. of course spray tanning is totally awkward. you are naked for the love of it! but she warmed the room, made me feel totally safe, and honestly it was the best spray tan experience i have ever had! the tan itself was custom blended to my tone, the color was gorgeous and it lasted for a solid 9 days before fading. i got more than my moneys worth here. highly recommended."
