To tan or not to tan: Oranges are not the only fruit

February 24, 2009 by Clark 

Let’s get one thing straight- this trend for liberal amounts of fake tan, be it in a spray, a cream or rubbing yourself with an old pumpkin, is not big and not clever. You look like an Oompa-Loompa, just not quite as stylish. How did looking cheap become so popular? The mid boggles. It doesn’t fool anyone.

Looking like you’ve stepped out of a 1980s Ready Brek advert doesn’t make you look pretty or stylish- it just leaves smears on smooth surfaces and gives you the appearance of watered-down pasta sauce.

Looking good should not be about hiding yourself under a dozen layers of fake tan and slap. A natural glow can be achieved with the minimum of fuss. Make sure any makeup you use suits the tone of your skin and doesn’t stand off it like greasepaint.

If you go along to a large department store such as Debenham’s, their advisors will be able to help you find the right shades for yourself. Add to your own tone and features- don’t try to cover them up completely. Let your real self shine through. Standing out from the herd can be easy- all you have to do is stop following them.

Create your own style- one that suits YOU as a person and helps make you feel good in your own skin.

So, get rid of the tubes and cans of gunk that make you look ripe, and embrace a new, more natural style. Your collars will thank you, and you may well find that people start to take a second glance because you look great, instead of hilarious.
