I’m typing this as it’s currently tipping it down with rain so I thought I’d squeeze in a last summer related post as we’re soon approaching my favourite time of year – yay! I never used to like the time of year that’s approaching. I was always a spring/summer girl, but half of the weather this summer has been rainy so I’m looking forward to getting out the boots and big coats! I don’t know what it is but something about Bonfire Night, Halloween, Christmas and even New Year all excite me immensely. Anyway, for the purpose of this post I’m going to pretend it’s not raining outside, I’m in fact going to picture a sunny hot day to put on a bit of bronzer!
Any excuse for a bit of contour, I’m the girl. I don’t know why but this year I started really getting into contouring my face and learning how to do it. Before I never really bothered but it does make a huge difference in the way my makeup looks. I love how it can make you feel more confident – whether that be making your forehead look smaller, making your face appear slimmer.. there’s a range of things that I love about it.
Bourjois Chocolate Bronzer | £7.99
My first favourite bronzer would have to be the Bourjois Chocolate Bronzer. I love how it’s quite subtle and not too overpowering so it’s hard to go overboard. It’s a massive plus that is smells of chocolate but don’t worry, you don’t walk around all day with the scent of chocolate following you around!
Mac Defining Powder* | £22.50
This is the most expensive out of the bunch but again, it’s much like the Bourjois Chocolate Bronzer in the sense that it isn’t too overpowering. This bronzer has no scent to it, and considering the shade is Medium Deep it’s really pale so I dread to think what the lighter shade is like!
Bourjois Bronzing Primer | £9.99
This is the most intense one out of them all and one that was just sitting in my makeup collection until I learnt how to properly use bronzer! I find you have to be quite careful with how much product you use as it’s very easy to apply too much. It’s good for an intense contour look but blend blend blend is the key with this one. If you don’t blend it all, it will look orange so whenever I use this I have to make sure I’m in natural light by a window so I can properly check before I go out, but it’s one to have if you want your bronzer to stay on all day.
