While I have yet to visit a tanning booth or get a spray tan, if I ever did, I'd like to think I wouldn't commit this cardinal cosmetic sin Kathy Griffin made last week.

Check it out.

She's three totally different shades!

Her face looks like her natural pale complexion, while her neck, décolletage  and arms look a notch above sun-kissed. Oh, and her legs? Flat-out full-blown orange.

I'm not sure exactly what happened here, but if she paid for this—I'd suggest she ask for a refund ASAP.

Maybe she ran out of time? Dusting a bronzing powder like Stila Sun ($28 at Beauty.com) over top of a gradual facial self-tanner like Dior Bronze Self-Tanner Natural Glow Face ($32 at Sephora.com) would have been a quick fix for her face. (Layering bronzer over self-tanner helps remedy the discoloration issue immediately while building up natural-looking color underneath.)

As for the over-tanned legs? Griffin could have dialed it down with St. Tropez's Self Tan Remover ($18 at Sephora.com). It's formulated to remove residue from fingers and the palms of your hands after applying self-tanner, but it's good for stripping excess color and evening out patches, too.

Hey tanners—has this ever happened to any of you? Have you ever, you know, missed a spot? Do tell!

    Waterproof shoes that you’ll actually want to wear all day

    Now that April is underway, we’ve officially entered the fickle season of on-again, off-again rain showers, thus complicating the already painful task of getting out of bed in the morning and starting the day. As if it isn’t already hard enough to quickly put together a nice work outfit, the bipolar nature of spring weather demands a careful mix of lightweight, waterproof layers, as well as appropriate footwear. Realistically, no one wants to wear a pair of chunky rubber boots around all day, but the only other alternative is to lug around a variety of gym shoes, heels, and flats to meet all of the day’s needs.
