I'm a natural red-head, so even if I try to tan, it's usually a lost cause. I'm not sure why that seems so hard for some people (usually those making "funny" comments about my fair skin during the summer) to understand.
I went through a phase of applying self tanner pretty often, but it's just such a hassle, and annoying to keep up with. Over the past couple years, I've learned to just embrace my skin tone for what it is. I try to look at it as "retro", fresh, or unique. Honestly, all you really need to do is just make it work!
If you're someone who's naturally dark, or you're able to achieve a nice glow after a day in the sun, more power to you! However, here is some beautiful inspiration for my pale girls out there:
|Don't shy away from a bikini! See how beautiful this looks?|
|Fair skin can help provide an edgy look with little effort.|
|A bit retro.|
|Beautiful on a night out. Makes those red lips pop!|
|I rarely see Kirsten Dunst with a tan. Her look is pretty and laid back.|
|Lindsey Lohan is known for often sporting an overly-orange fake tan. I think she looks better with a more natural tone, like she has here.|
|You can argue with pure gorgeous-ness. Love this photo.|
|A very "everyday" look. You barely notice whether she has a tan or whether she doesn't. She looks casual, yet stylish.|
Whatever your skin tone, own it! Remember, you're able to pull of a look that others can't. Share your thoughts below!
