"I got made fun of A LOT ('Are you sick?') because of how pale I was, and then how red I'd turn if I tried to tan. I'm Mexican, everyone in my family has a perfect tan. I have translucent skin."
How did you overcome it?
"I started tanning. All. The. Time. It was too much, I looked insane — and when I mystic tanned, I looked orange. One day, I saw a picture of myself and was like WTF? I just kinda realized that this is what I got, love it or not, but skin cancer, wrinkles, and orange skin sure as hell don't look better. I'll still get a spray tan every now and then but I'm pale...this is life — I also learned to apply blush, so that helped. LOL."
Any favorite products?
"I love Tan Towels because you can basically swipe on a buildable tan. It gives you a discreet, even glow on your face, neck, body — wherever you need it! Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer is awesome! Even if you're pale like me, it gives you a natural looking glow, and it literally smells like chocolate! Milani blush is legit amazing! It's super pigmented, lets you build up as much (or as little) color as you want, and it's under $10 bucks!"
You can get Tan Towels and the Milani Baked Blush from Amazon for $24, and $6.39. The Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer is available on Sephora for $30.
