This year was different. I decided to throw caution to the wind and pick up a bronzing pallette. I'm here to tell you that bronze (or at least a light bronzy glow) can be done on fair skin tones. Here are 4 products I think would work well on any skin tone to achieve a pretty summer glow.
1. Clinique Self Sun Body Daily Moisturizer
2. Marcelle Multi-Colour Bronzing Pressed Powder in Bronze Celebration
This pallete was my facial bronzer introduction. This is the pallette that let me know I could do it! It's a multi-coloured palette featuring 5 stips of shimmer colour from a sun-kissed pink to a deep brown. Though I haven't used it this palette looks comparible to the Bobbi Brown Beach Shimmer Brick and is suitable for the girl on a budget! This palette cost me about $15 where the Bobbi Brown pallete is $38! I like to mix all the colours and brush them on my cheekbones for the perfect bronze shimmer or use the colours on their own to create different beachy eye looks.
3. Clinique Blushwear Cream Stick in 01 Glow Blush
This is a blusher stick I got in a Clinique GWP a while back and I had never used one before. Basically you just apply a few swips to your cheekbones (and any other areas that would naturally get the sun like the bridge of your nose and chin) and then blend until the colour looks natural. This hasn't been my favourite product because I find it a little hard to blend and because I think the colour is a little dark for me. But I still think it's an interesting product to try if you prefer cream blushes to powder blushes or if you find they work better on your skin.
4. Clinique Up-Lighting Liquid Illuminator in 01 Natural
Hopes this helps all of you get that special summer glow! I think I've also reiterated the awesome power of GWPs from brands you already love. You get to try new products you might have otherwise overlooked (or ignored due to their pricetags). How was your Monday? Did you have a busy start to your week or did you take it easy today?
