I put on fake tan for the first time in years & it was such a mess – I was the same shade as an orangutan

A BEAUTY lover was mortified after a major fake tanning disaster left her looking like an orangutan.

But those who use this magical product on a religious basis also knowhow horribly wrong it can go – and this is exactly what happened to one woman.

Ahead of her girls-only holiday, the travel and lifestyle blogger, Catherine Kay, decided to give herself a little makeover.

However, things didn't quite go according to her plan, as she took to TikTok to share the epic fail.

''So last night I did my fake tan for the first time in years,'' she said whilst standing in front of the camera.
