Is it normal for fair-skinned people to look ugly under flourescent lights?

I was at a department store trying on clothes. I looked in the mirror and my cheeks looked all blotchy and unflattering. But in my room at home I look pretty dang good, and also outside in sunlight.

But I see other people in the store who look fine in fluorescent lighting. So is it just me? Am I just ugly?

  • florescent lights aren't flattering for anyone.

    i'm as white as a person can be without having albinism, I don't look blotchy, but they do tend to light me in the wrong way =S

  • Fluorescent lights are anything but natural, they have a weird tone to them. That's why they're not used for lighting in movies (I don't know anything about photography, but I assume it's the same)--they make people look bad.

  • I'm fair, and I look kind of bad under florescent light's too. I'm dreading the day that those will be the only kind of light bulbs they sell lol.

    • I don't think florescents are the future. those eco bulbs are. I have them in my house and they cast more of a natural light and they don't make people look nasty =D

    • Really? Good, I was worried haha.

  • NO! its just that you look better under other lights! Like models in photo shoots lighting is very important

  • Non one looks good under florescent lighting

    Even Dark-skinned people like look awkward under it.

  • I don't think I have ever looked blotchy in certain kinds of light, and I'm extremely pale. I seriously look like a vampire.
