Not sure that I'm posting in the right place as my problem makes me neither stylish nor beautiful. I have a REALLY bad goggle-type tan on my face from a combination of allergy to most sunscreen (can only use p20, factor 20) and wearing larger than usual sunglasses. I know that I should've worn a hat over the last few days but I haven't and I have a ball at the weekend.
So what to do? I popped into Boots and bought their own brand tan for about £7. Do I apply it to just the white bits? Is it safe to put around my eyes? If I put it on my already tanned bits will they go darker or is tan set to a certain colour? Should I just buy a really dark one and put it over everything?
So as a little update - I sat out at lunchtime for about 30 minutes with no sunglasses (I had to put little cardboard discs over my actual eye though, how does anybody sunbathe??). The difference is still striking though. I've used brown eyeshadow in the past to fill in the bit over my nose, but would be scared to use it on such a big area? I don't really do much make-up - have a tinted moisturiser but I don't think that will cut it. Will do a St Ives scrub tonight and see what happens.
