Bronzers are a must have for me. Even with little makeup it just make you look alive and gives your face some structure. I’m going to review my 4 favorite bronzers and decide which one is really worth having.
The Bobbi Brown bronzing powder in medium is probably the first satisfying bronzer I’ve ever brought. The medium shade is perfect for my skin tone. It has a cool under tone and is completely matte which makes it more natural and better if you want to contour. Somehow this bronzer suits me all year round. Even my best friend who has a very fair skin used this bronzer while on vacation and it did not look too dark. I find that the formula lasts all day and does not look patchy.
Nars bronzing powder in laguna is probably one of the biggest makeup staples. Everyone raves about it. It is a lot lighter than the Bobbi Brown bronzer so I don’t get to use it all the time. There’s a little bit of shimmer in the pan but I don’t find that it’s visible when you apply it on your skin. It’s a very neutral shade, not too cool and not too warm but I find that since it’s not very dark, it doesn’t give enough definition to my face. It’s an overall good bronzer for medium to fair skin.
Bobbi Brown stick foundation in 6.5 warm almond is good to use as cream contour. You just have to pick up a shade in the darker range. Since it’s supposed to be a foundation it is extremely blendable and the stick makes it easy to contour precisely the hallow areas of your face. Like the shade says it, the 6.5 is very warm so I only use it during summer but you could just pick up a cool shade. I find that cream contour is very good when it’s extremely hot outside because it very light and natural on your face.
MAC skinfinish powder in give me sun is also quite popular. I purchased this bronzer not too long ago. I find it amazing for when you want to add a tan to your face. It is very orange but somehow looks very good on the skin. It is not matte but doesn’t bother me because it adds a healthy glow. I really like this bronzer just for bronzing and wouldn’t recommend trying to contour with it. The texture is extremely silky and very blendable.
Overall I think that the perfect bronzer is the Bobbi Brown bronzing powder. Just because it works for everyday, bronzes and contour your face, plus it lasts a very long time.
