I love having a nice tan, but I hate knowing that it is damaging to my skin. I tan every once in awhile, just so I'm not translucent, and do a spray tan the day before a shoot. I use the mystic tan at Planet Beach...if done correctly, you won't be orange and it looks like a well-earned beach tan, with out the damaging your skin. It lasts about 4-6 days and washes off.
So, in my opinion, stay paler and just use bronzing lotions or spray tanning before a shoot.
to be honest...i cant tell which is the tan and which is the pale picture...maybe its my screen?
anywho...tans are overrated in my opinion...they do make people look more thin, but i prefer pale.
i think its pretttty
OK,I'm a bit biased because I shot with you,but you can pull off either. However,IMO,you have an atribute that tan skin would limit,your amazing artwork on your body,which I think is one of the reasons you are so unique and are one of the most sought after models on this site(you are coming to Florida when?Lol). Pale skin brings out your tats.However,you can always use a spray on tan for a temporary tan(I'd be petrified to hit a tanning salon in risking your tats fading),or when we shot and only parts of your legs are showing,wear suntan pantyhose.
I like working with natural skin the most. Naturally tan or pale, or what not. If your naturallly pretty pale from day to day activities and what not, let it be, i say, but whatever, my opinion doesnt mean much.
depends on what your goals are.... look at most ads in the
magazines, (mainstream magazines) then you decide for your self as to what to do and what direction you want to take take your modeling.
best to you
I liked both looks but honestly tan skin is hot, and I love having a tan in the summer. When I have a tan I get way more compliments and I do like the way I look in the photos. But there's no reason to tan all year long if you look great pale too! Just my opinion.
Also, I think you may get more jobs now because you're more experienced, confident, and you have a nice port to prove it
P.S: if you were a redhead I'd say don't tan because I've noticed redheads don't tan too well ... also if your skin is sensitive maybe go for a real light tan and some tanning lotion? No reason to destroy your skin when you have many beautiful years ahead of you.
if you naturally tan, than that's fine but there's nothing wrong with being pale :-P
Us who are pale are just living in the wrong age. Back in the Victorian era being pale was deemed much more attractive because it meant you were rich enough that you didn't have to work out in the sun. Now it's the opposite. Being tan signifies that you have lots of money to spend on leisure time and that you're healthier. But my vote is for pale.
