My skin is pretty pale due to by English ancestry. I also have really intense blue eyes, people are constantly asking if I wear contacts. The thing is I don't know whether just to embrace my light skin or tan daily ( fake of course not sun ) I've lately started to embrace it a little more, but still feel pretty self conscious when I am surrounded by natural tanned and blond girls ( I have jet black hair ) what do you think?
I have English ancestry as well and have the same exact thing as you, I completely embrace it. I personally don't think I would look all that right if I was tan. Also, I'd rather not have to go to the dermatologist every week/month later in life like my mother to get precancerous skin burnt off because I laid out in the sun constantly in hope for some actual pigmentation.
