Meet Imogen Silversides, the 17-year-old who was inspired by a fellow fake tan fan on Facebook, who’d had spectacular results using a roller.
As she decides to try it on herself last week,things didn’t work out so well for Imogen, from Scarborough, and the teenager was left with an almost muddy hue.
She posted the results to social media , where it has gone predictably viral.
Imogen said: “Who ever the girl was that recommend to apply fake tan with a paint roller is one lying f**k. Don’t think I’ll be at work Friday.”
Since she uploaded the side-splitting pic it has been been viewed almost 40,000 times and shared more than 5,000.
A total of 23,000 people have seen fit to comment on Imogen’s misfortune.
One of them, Chloe Morby, asked: “Why don’t you use a colour that actually matches your skin rather than smothering yourself in chocolate..?”
