Being on the paler side of things can sometimes be a hassle. Although I love being pale (MAC NC20) and I enthusiastically embrace the goodness, I admit it sometimes can bring trouble. Finding a good foundation that will match is often a task in itself, and finding a bronzer that doesn't make me look dirty/fake has been a mission I have been challenging for the past few years.
Last week, I took to my TWITTER to ask some of you guys what bronzer some of you pale beauties were using. The suggestions came pouring in, and as I guessed a few of the suggestions had already been tried and tested. ONE product intrigued me, a couple of my fellow pale beauties recommended the new bronzer collection that The Body Shop has recently launched.
The following day I paid my local branch a visit, I saw 3 pale bronzers staring back at me and as I swatched away, I knew it was going to be perfect. The collection contains 3 colours, Fair, Light and Medium and best of all, all matte. Not only did the pattern look attractive, I loved how it had a incorporated mirror. All shades were unbelievably wearable and the fair, and light shades actually looked almost too pale for my skin, is that possible?! I settled on 'Medium' and walked out of the store smiling like I had hit jackpot.
So, here it is sat on my desk as I snap away some photo's. My gosh, I can not explain how happy/relieved I feel. My objective for a bronzer is to simply give me a little hint of colour throughout the mid summer season without looking overdone, it sure does deliver. I like to use it to first of all contour, applying a generous amount underneath my cheekbones, jawline and forehead and then finishing with a very light hand all over my face. This is perfect, just the way I always wanted my bronzers to work! The Bronzer was £13 but I obviously got 10% off using my trusty loyalty card, I personally think it is such a steal in comparison to other bronzers on the market!
So, if you guys are a pale shade like me then be sure to check these out ^_^
Have you tried these before? What are your favorite bronzers?
