Today's topic - bronzer. If you were limited to having one item in your makeup bag, what would it be? Some may say mascara, some would choose foundation, I would 100% pick bronzer. Why? It is such a versatile product. What can it do?

1.  It can change the shape of your face

2. It can warm up a dull, sallow looking skin

3. It can add some shimmer for that holiday glow

4. It can match your face shade to your body shade (for those of us who don't want facial sun exposure) 

You should always be careful when picking your bronzer that the shade is right for your skin tone. Here are a few tips. First consider your undertone. Are you yellow or pink? 

SKIN TONES

VERY FAIR-FAIR

  • Go for a light tone that’s 1-2 shades darker than your natural skin colour, this will ensure a natural looking glow. 

LIGHT-MEDIUM

  • You can go 2-3 shades darker then your skin tone.

    MEDIUM-DARK

  • Deep gold and bronze tones look divine. Don't go too light, you'll wind up looking ashy.

DARK-VERY DARK

  • People with dark skin tones are unlikely to find a bronzer that will have any effect, instead try to find a deep cinnamon red that will enrich the dark skin tone. 

Hope that made sense.

And of course I'll be back with some of my faves, I'll have to limit myself because there are quite a few.
