Have you ever made THIS faux tanning faux pas?
Check out this multi-shade look on Kathy Griffin.
by India-Jewel Jackson
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!
