What fake tans work best on pasty pale skin?

Beige, if you will. Yes, I got freckles and yes my hair does lightening, but tanning. Nada. Because of growing up with pasty pale skin (which, I have no issue with, I love my pale skin now) I have always struggled to find the right fake tan.

Which is why I decided to hunt down the best fake tan none to pale kind skin. Here’s what I found out.
