Kona Tanning Company believes
in focusing on one area of expertise to continue being the best at it —
for them, it’s custom airbrushed spray tanning and body contouring. In
2005, newlywed owners Katie and Kenny created their famous homemade mix
of tanning solution, The Kona Tanning House Blend,
out of their kitchen
in Orange County. Since then, they have applied that gorgeous
Kona Color on famous faces for editorials, television, film, and even
the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Shows. The product line soon expanded to
include tanning preparation products, aftercare lotions and sprays, and
bronzing makeup, as Katie needed quick fixes for common tanning
problems seen both on and off the runway. Their popularity with
media tastemakers skyrocketed the Kona Tanning House Blend, and today
it can be found in luxury spray tanning salons worldwide.

Victoria's Secret Fashion Show Tanning & Body Makeup Artist
Once the perfect tanning color had been created, former Amour Creole fashion magazine Beauty Director Katie Quinn studied
the application technique through the eyes of a body makeup artist,
manipulating shadows as she airbrushed, masking and blending flaws.
Next she mastered the art of enhancing the body’s natural definition
and curves, even creating some from scratch. She then studied drawing
the human body with charcoal pencils, paying particular attention to
muscle groups, frames, and the fluidity of the body’s movement, fine-tuning her talents under some of the world’s top makeup artists and
fitness legends. Because
of this approach to airbrush tanning, Katie has worked on some of the
greatest bodies in the fitness industry, in Hollywood, and in fashion.
In 2009 Katie added Victoria’s Secret to
her fashion resume, working on the Pink campaign in the Spring, and the
famous Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in New York in the Fall. Katie
continued to produce flawless tans for each year’s VS Show, and in 2012
was thrilled to be invited to lead for body makeup at the 2012
Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.
In addition to loving beauty, fashion and wellness, Katie also loves finding a great bargain. You will find her boutique riddled with AFFORDABLE hard-to-find editor favorites, certain to make you, too, brag about your age!
Katie has worked with Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima, Candice
Swanepoel, Doutzen Kroes, Miranda Kerr, Barbara Palvin, Rosie
Huntington-Whiteley, Behati Prinsloo and Marisa Miller. Learn more about how Katie Quinn and her work.
