Back in September, Mitt Romney caught some flack when he appeared at a Univision event with a very, very, tan face. Some speculated as to whether Mittens had fake baked. The Univision makeup artist, Lazz Rodriguez, later defended his honor by saying that he used a little bit of powder on the candidate, but that Romney's tan was au natural. Or was it?

BuzzFeed has it on good authority from a "knowledgable source" that Romney is a spray tanner--just like the Kardashians. To keep his guilty beauty secret off the books, Romney apparently pays for the treatments himself. A Romney spokesperson denied the report.

But spray tanning professionals beg to differ, and some think his skin color (or skin of many colors--see this hilarious guide) is evidence enough. Anna Stankiewicz, the owner of the New York-based spray tan company Suvara, told Buzzfeed:

The color he's choosing is totally not believable. It's a dead giveaway...They're clearly using way too dark a forumla for his skin tone, It's just like, 'Oh my God, he got sprayed. It's just so obvious.

The above photos would seem to prove her point.
