Teenager mortified after fake tan fail left her looking 'like an Oompa Loompa'
A mum couldn’t stop laughing at her tan-loving teen’s beauty fail, after she accidentally picked up the ‘darker than dark’ colour.
Keira Domachowski, 13, was filmed by mum Carole Rees as she wandered through the living room waiting for the product to develop.
The teen admitted she had grabbed the darker shade without realising, as she had been too busy concentrating on how the product was quick-acting.
Carole, 61, from Rhondda Cynon Taff, Wales, said: ‘It was a disaster, she looked like an Oompa Loompa, I just couldn’t get over it.
‘Her face was just so dark and her teeth were gleaming. With her white teeth and white pyjamas, it was quite a contrast.
The mum shared a video of the moment on Facebook, racking up more than 2,000 likes, shares and comments.
She explained how Keira had become really interested in beauty over the last year, and has been trying out fake tan.
Carole said: ‘Keira’s been fake tanning for about a year and she says to me “Mam it’ll be alright when I wash it off”.
‘This time she came down the stairs and I’m like “oh my god what have you done?” She says to me “Mam don’t look at me now, look at me in the morning”. She’s funny she is.
‘She doesn’t do it all the time, she does it for special occasions, but this time it was random – it was lockdown madness.
‘I couldn’t believe the colour she was after it, thankfully it turned out really nice.
‘I know it’s a popular tan and a lot of the youngsters use it but it just looks horrendous when it goes on, it’s so funny. They’re all Oompa Loompas.’
Beauty lover Keira said she picked up the £2.99 product in Home Bargains.
Keira said: ‘I’m really into beauty stuff, I love it.
‘Usually I’m really impatient with fake tan and I end up wiping it off early anyway so I thought the hour-fast one would be better.
‘I got a bit of a shock when I looked in the mirror and saw how dark I was
‘I’ve never been that dark before.’
After jumping in the shower, Keira said the extreme darker colour washed away and she was left with a natural-looking glow.
‘The colour lasted about five days,’ added Keira. ‘I would use it again but I’d leave it on longer as I know it’ll turn out nice.
‘It’s definitely not put me off tanning in future.’
A St Moriz spokesperson said: ‘Keira looks great after using our 1 Hour Fast Tan, we love seeing people’s results and she looks naturally tanned with a healthy glow!
‘Self-tanning is a great mood-booster and we love putting a smile on peoples faces by helping them feel more confident.’
