Starting in London and possibly working its way to the U.S. soon is a new style of winter coloring known as a ski goggle tan. This budget-friendly beauty treatment is intended to create the appearance of a post-ski glow without ever having to step foot in the snow.

While white raccoon eyes could become status symbol in the U.K., until it actually starts snowing, it's mainly just idiotic.
