Beauty Blooper: See Spot Dance

Hey everyone! I just want to remind you to keep sending in your beauty bloopers. Help me help your fellow beauty addicts learn from your mistakes and mishaps! Today's blooper involves one anonymous reader's spray tan slip-up.

"I decided to try spray tanning a couple of months ago for a wedding I was attending in the Bahamas. As a first-timer, I diligently watched the video, applied the barrier cream in all the right places and held my breath for 30 seconds like I was instructed. When it was over, I began to towel off until I noticed drippings falling from the shower cap onto my face. I frantically blended them for fear of splotches, and at the same time, I was intermittently wiping off my hands so they wouldn't stain and give away my secret.

"Because I was so concerned with my face, I completely skipped out on rubbing in the self tanner on the backs of my arms, shoulders and back. Four hours later I took a shower and didn't notice a thing.

"In the morning, I hopped on a plane to the wedding where I was excited to show off my new tan. However, just as I was getting jiggy on the dance floor, a bridesmaid came over and gently pointed out that my back was covered in little orange spots. I was so totally mortified that I spent the remainder of my time at the wedding in the bathroom trying to fade the tan spots with lemon juice."

Lesson learned: Be patient and meticulous if you are going to get a spray tan, since there is nothing worse than an obvious, cheetah-print faux glow!
