 Romney’s “Fake Tan” is His Natural Skin Tone

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's "fake tan" at a town hall forum earlier this week was instead his natural skin tone even as liberals continue to speculate that he had used a spray tan ahead of the event, according to an investigation conducted by ABC/Univision News.

It appeared that a makeup artist had gone to work at the candidate with a heavy hand, prompting some speculation in the liberal blogosphere that the Republican had applied some self-tanner before Univision's "Meet the Candidate" event to address Hispanic issues.

However, the Univision team, which spoke to the cosmetologist in question, 25-year veteran Lazz Rodriguez, has found that Romney's darker skin tone was natural, and not as a result of some MAC Studio Fix powder plus foundation in shade NW30, that the make-up artist had applied to him, the New York Daily News reports.

The investigative team also tried caking the makeup on test subjects under harsh lights but didn't get the same effect.

Rodriguez said that that candidate simply sat down in his makeup chair with a deep, natural tan. The accusations that the candidate had previously spray tanned or that the makeup hue was to blame are both incorrect, he claimed.

"What they [bloggers and commenters] have done is all a bit sad to me," Rodriguez told Univision.

"I also don't want this to jeopardize a career I've worked so hard to build in this field. He was tan from being out in the sun on the campaign trail, that's the only possible explanation," he added.

The Romney campaign refused to comment on the candidate's 'base coat'.
