I'm from London but my family are Irish, but I've been told I don't look particularly Irish. I know I look pale in my pics but I'm not naturally all that pale, and I know fair skin seems to be associated with being Irish. But a lot of my family aren't really pale either. Most of them have average skin tones and tan easily. Red hair is another one, and only my Nana has red hair, but everyone else has brown, black or blonde hair, and various eye colors too. I just don't get how someone can say there is a 'look'. What makes them different from any other northern European places?
