As the American people enter their third year with President Donald Trump, many still have questions. Will he receive funding for his U.S-Mexico border wall? Will he get impeached? How is it that in the unforgiving cold temperatures of February, he’s still able to maintain his orange glow?
No one can predict the future but Vanity Fair has spoken to sources close 45 who allege in regards to his skin tone, he applies his own makeup. Originally, the New York Times query was pursued as a matter of Trump’s health, to which a senior administration officially attributed his orange hue to “good genes.”
Former aide Omarosa Manigault Newman penned in her tell-all book that Trump travels with a tanning bed. The pale skin around his eyes helped to bolster the allegation, making many believe he wore goggles while tanning. However, sources confirm there is no tanning bed on Air Force One or inside the White House.
Instead, Trump is known for applying his own translucent powder before making appearances and speeches, and also adjusts the lighting at events within the White House to not appear too citrus-y.
The president’s complexion has been a source of Internet fodder and a running punchline since his election. Along with his makeup routine, the president also goes through a detail-oriented grooming process for his swooping blond hair.
