Makeup after spray tanning

Question: How long after my spray tan may I apply makeup?

Answer: You can apply mineral make up as soon as your tan is dry, because it just sits on top of your skin and does not interfere with the tan developing. Anything else, if it is water or oil based will dissolve your spray tan. It can be applied the next day, after you had your first shower.

It is one thing to apply make up, but you must also remember not to remove it for at least 5 hours so that your spray tan has a chance to develop fully underneath it before you subject it to water.
