Also known as how Claire overcame her fear of bronzer. Oh yes folks, I’ve been contouring! And just in time for Spring too! I’ve always associated bronzer with orange. I’m rather pasty (between MAC 15-20) with neutral undertones and for a good long while I’ve been embracing the pale. It’s sunscreen all the way for me but I decided this year I would conquer my fear of faux tan and bronzer and this was just the right product to start me off!
You get a rather generous 16g of product for £6.99 housed in cardboard packaging. Some people hate cardboard packaging I know but personally I don’t mind it and it feels relatively sturdy. The powder looks simply adorabubble and has a lovely sweet scent. It doesn’t smell like chocolate to me like it’s supposed to but it’s lovely nonetheless. Allegedly it has little ‘flecks of sunshine’ in it and whilst you can see a few gold sparkles in the pan these thankfully don’t transfer onto the face.
The powder is finely milled and blends nicely. It’s a soft muted bronze which doesn’t pull orange on me (unless you really pack it on). It’s perfect for a soft natural looking contour and it doesn’t look too obvious even on my pale skin. Unfortunately this means it probably wouldn’t be very effective on darker skin tones though.
Does anyone have any suggestions for other bronzers suitable for pale skin?
