The Perfect Bronzer at Last?


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?

  1. I've never even gone near Bronzer before, in fear I will look over done or fake! But these bronzers sounds amazing! I might need to pop down to my local Body Shop to check them out and see if any match my skin, thank you for sharing!

  7. We have similar skin tone, I like Maybelline Dream Mousse Bronzer in 20 Sun Glow, Cover Girl Cheekers in 170 Golden Pink, and Jane Iredale Moonglow Golden Bronzer. For dramatic look, I reach for Le Metier de Beaute Marchesa Le Soleil palette. Thanks, I will also check out the Body Shop ones.
