I have been using fake tan for so many years that it is probably now part of my my genetic makeup. So you’ll understand that I think there aren’t many beauty dilemmas that a good application of a good tan can’t fix. Until I see someone like this…
This is actress Rooney Mara who I had never even heard of in my life until today (where have I been??!! Clearly not watching the Social Network or The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo). But oh my, her pale skin is perfection!
I think she looks absolutely beautiful and I wouldn’t dream of going anywhere near her will ‘the faux’. She makes me dream of being all pure and natural and lovely. Thing is though, it still doesn’t motivate me to ‘can the tan’.
You see, if I let my skin return to its natural colour (can’t quite remember exactly how pale that is) it really wouldn’t look like Miss Mara here. I am sure I’d be more blue than this gorgeous creamy colour, and there would probably be blotches and other yucky unevenness. So I’ll just dream on!!
Maybe we need a beauty product that is ‘fake pale’? What’s the solution? I wish I could pull off pale. And now I am just rambling!!
Do you love pale or are you a tan addict like me?
