You know that I embrace my pasty complexion and try not to use self-tanners or bake in the sun, so I only use bronzers to give some definition to cheeks and temples, and also to make my face appear slimmer. In this roundup of weekly favorites I wanted to show you bronzers that I’ve been using for a while, as well as recent additions to my stash.
e.l.f. Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder in St. Lucia is a dupe for NARS Orgasm & Laguna duo that costs times and times more. The pigments aren’t as finely milled as NARS, but I really can’t complain, because for $3 this is a total steal. I’ve been using the bronzer for contouring and just recently re-purchased this palette, because the old one got all dirty and gross [that’s why it looks brand new in the pictures].
Le Metier de Beaute Blushing Bronzed Duet in Romeo & Juliet is the perfect marriage of a warm-toned bronzer and a cool-toned blush that look fantastic on the skin when worn alone or together. It’s a new item in my rotation but I’ve already used it several times, and loving it so far.
Physicians Formula Bronze Booster Glow-Boosting Airbrushing Bronzing Veil Deluxe Edition – Cheese Louise, isn’t that the longest name you’ve ever seen? All ridiculousness aside, this is the perfect drugstore bronzer for fair-skinned girls: the pigment is buildable, and looks completely natural even on the palest of complexions.
L’Occitane Fleur Cherie Radiance Face Powder Pearls have been long discontinued. This Limited Edition bronzer blush can probably still be found on eBay and in select L’Occitane boutiques in Europe, but for the most part it’s pretty much gone from the shelves. However, it’s still one of my favorite makeup items that I use often. These warm pearls give my cheeks that healthy glow from within, which is helpful when I skimped on beauty sleep.
Do you have a favorite bronzer?
