Bronzed Goddess

Wednesday, 8 May 2013

I've just got back from a lovely morning sunbathing at the beach and it's totally inspired me to write my 'Bronzed Goddess' article reviewing the best bronzers on the market right now... I've done the leg work so to speak in that I've tried and tested a range of different bronzers over the past month or so and picked my best of the best bronzers...

Clarins Splendours Summer Bronzing compact 
Right, First things beautiful is this compact?! Alot bigger than I expected it to be, which is great as it will last longer and has a big enough surface area to sweep your brush around the compact and use to define your collar bone and chest.
This bronzing compact includes a warming combination of harmonising and softening tones to create a naturally tanned complexion without the orange pigment!

Bobbi Brown's Bronze Shimmer Brick
This award winning bronzing shimmer brick is now a staple in my essential makeup kit, I love its contouring qualities and its subtle summer shimmer, highlighting your cheeks in all the right places. This shimmering brush on bronzing powder is perfect for defining your face and used in the correct way can make a drastic difference to the overall definition of your face (I was given a contouring lesson by my good friend and personal make up artist Harriet Lawman- The great thing about this brick is you that due to the five bars of luminous shades you can actually use it as eyeshadow brick too! I love multipurpose beauty products!

Chanel's Sheer Illuminating Bronzing Fluid 
Soleil Tan De Chanel is a hydrating and seductively sheer bronzing fluid that creates an illuminated and tanned effect to your complexion, giving it that natural sun kissed complexion that can only usually be imitated by the sunshine, Chanel has taken this challenge on and massively succeeded  I love this product and now the sun is out I've been using it everyday! It can be used underneath foundation, on top of foundation and even mixed into your foundation- it's incredibly easy to work with and so subtle looking.

Bronzing Brushes
My two new favourite brushes worth mentioning right now is Chanel's Kabuki Retractable brush (perfect to keep in your handbag for a midday complexion refresh) and Clarins 'The Brush' both can be used to apply face powders, blushers and bronzers. I love the Clarins brush to keep at home when doing my makeup for the day and my Chanel brush now lives in my handbag to rescue me during my travels!
