I wanted a rosy glow so added some pink food colouring to my moisturiser – now I just look painfully sunburned

Jena McTavish took to TikTok to share a video of her epic fail, showcasing her VERY rosy complexion as she explained: “So I added some pink gel food colour to my moisturiser for a rosy glow.

“It worked… I’m rosy.”

Writing over the top of the video, Jena added: “Trying soooo hard not to cry right now.

“How do I get this off?”

The comments section was quickly flooded with messages from people weighing in on her predicament – with some offering helpful tips and others seizing the opportunity to mock her mistake.

“Have um you tried blush, tho?” one person asked, to which Jena replied: “Yeah but you know how one things leads to another sometimes.”

“Why would you use dye. Makes no sense,” another wondered.

“I call that shade, midday sunburn,” someone else commented, with Jena responding: “Truth.

“This is how I look most of the summer anyway.”

At the end of the video, she was seen frantically scrubbing at her face to try and remove some of the pink stain.

And while she was quite successful, it wasn’t enough restore her skin to its natural hue.

In fact, when she was getting ready to go out the next night, Jena attempted to layer on the make-up in a bid to cover up the pink.

“This is just a quick update from last night – I dyed my face pink and I put make-up on and it was looking good until the make-up became pink,” she said.

“The dye went through the make-up so…”

In writing over the top of the clip, she added: “And yes I am holding the tears back.

“I’m on my way out to sushi so there’s nothing else I can do.”

“It’s not that noticeable,” one person commented on the video.
