Ok, I know I’m supposed to be the expert here, but I need a little help. I have this Mardi Gras Ball coming up very soon, and well, my skin is so pale that you can practically see through it. I plan to wear a strapless dress. It’s a grey dress which won’t do much against my vampire-like skin.
I’m a big fan of how I look with a little glow, nothing overdone, just a little color. My mom always said that tan fat was better than pale fat (oh yeah, welcome to my world) – and well, I don’t consider myself fat in the least, but people, c’mon – I’ve had a baby. Wait, better yet, I should say I’ve had a baby and my name is not Camila Alves or Heidi Klum. There are parts of me that will just look better with a tan.
Don’t worry, I’m fanatical about doing everything in my power to prevent wrinkles and sun damage, so I know better than to lay in a tanning bed for a few weeks. Instead, I think it will be best to spray a bunch of chemicals on my skin. That’s gotta be better, right?
But, um. I’m skeered. What if it turns me orange?! The oompa-loompa look is not good on me. How do I know what level to choose? What if I go from looking very French to looking very Italian in about 20 minutes flat? That’s gonna be awkward, right?
Have you done this? Tips/tricks/suggestions for me?
