TIP TUESDAY: Do Not Become An Oompa Loompa

Let’s just put it out there:  there is such a thing as being TOO tan.  And if you had told that to me in my teen years, I would have disagreed heartily with you.  Let us examine the evidence.

Again, so sorry!  Hard to pair Anne Hathaway with anyone and them not looking too tan next to her!

Ick!  I wonder what the rest of him looks like.  Actually, I take that back.

The lesson here is that if you are darker than everyone else around you, STOP TANNING IMMEDIATELY!  You are wearing white or cream so your tan will look great and you DO NOT want to look like Valentino next to your bridesmaids.  And that goes for the bronzer as well.  Your face and body should be the same color!
