When I look back at pictures from a few years ago, I was so TAN!! I used to love the sun kissed glow look and thought it cleared up my skin- and it did, for that week lol but obviously it was leaving my skin more damaged in the long run…In my opinion, most people look better with a little color, I do NOT pull off the pretty pale look like some girls. So because I don’t do as much laying out and tanning and I do NOT put sunless tanner on my face… I need a good bronzer! Bronzer is very tricky, you dont want to put on too much and look dirty or get a shade too orange or even too dark. ALWAYS tap off access powder from your brush to avoid applying too much… I have 4 brands that I love, some I use when I am tanner. I am not a fan of shimmery bronzers; I like it to look more natural.
I just recently bought the Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Spray in the Medium shade and its fab! I either spray it on my face directly, holding it a few inches away from my face and then just blend it in with my foundation brush or you can also spray it into your foundation before you apply it. Kinda pricey ($64) so not too sure if ill buy it again because although I really like it I dont NEEEED it…Oh and it does have SPF 10 which isn’t alot but its better than nothing.. So if your ina rush its easy to spray on quick and you have that spf and broze look in a jiff which is nice!!
Benefit- Hoola– I have been using this one the longest and it lasts forever plus it comes in a cute packaging! It is very blendable and matte.
Tarte- Park Ave Princess (Amazonian Clay Matte, Waterproof, this bronzer contains Skin invigorating ingredients, such as water to deliver and retain moisture, which I need because I am definitely more dry… Also vitamins A and E, which act as antioxidants to fight free radical damage, vitamin C, an antioxidant that fights free radical damage and prevents oxidative stress and premature signs of aging while brightening skin, and mineral pigments that are known for their soothing and softening properties. This product is very natural but sometimes it’s not as dark as I need.
Nars- Contour Blush Paloma– I have almost used up the entire bronzer side, didn’t love the light highlight shade.. but very natural and perfect tone for my skin. I heard the Nars Laguna Bronzer is great so I will try that next!
Too Faced- Chocolate Soleil Medium/Deep shade– I don’t even have to sell you
on this, it smells like chocolate, its amazing, DUH!
