The Edit: Bronzers

*Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder in 01, *Nars Laguna, *Dior Skin Nude 02, Soleil Tan De Chanel

(Pre-warning, you will see the words warmth, complexion and glow a lot in this post. Jus' sayin!)

If there is one product I love, it's a good bronzer. Face full of slap or not they bring warmth to your complexion, add shape and generally make you look healthier, which can make a hell of a difference. I've tried my fair share of bronzers and I'm bringing to you my edit of the ones that have made the cut. I know you're thinking why do you need four different bronzers? But I promise you they are all different and bring different things to the table - It all depends what you want to achieve out of it, but I reckon I've got a good selection here for everyone. Plus, it's good to have choice, right?

First up is the newest edition and that's the Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder - a pure matte powder which is brilliant for strategically applying contour as well as just sweeping all over your face for warmth, also giving slight coverage (perfect for good skin days). I also love this product for the big mirror in the compact, which makes it ideal to carry around in your handbag, this and it's silky texture makes it perfect for touch ups throughout the day.

Next up is Nars Laguna, a known favourite to many, many people. It has fine gold shimmer running through it making it the perfect bronzer for applying to the high points of your face adding warmth and a very soft glow at the same time. Even if you was to apply it to the outer parts of your face it results in a beautiful sun-kissed look, it also blends like a dream and offers something extra special that the others can't seem to give. I can't quite put my finger on it, but its definitely got something about it.

Going on to Soleil Tan De Chanel, my ultimate favourite. A creamy base with gold shimmer running through it once again. This can be used for so many things, it's original purpose is to use it as a base under your foundation to even and bring warmth to your complexion. Personally, I like to use it as a bronzer. It makes your skin look that little bit more flawless as I find it provides slight coverage. It's definitely one I like to use for nights out as it's slightly more obvious, but saying that it's as build-able as you want it to be (I like to go to town with it).

Last but not least Dior Skin Nude. This one is the perfect partner for fair skinned girls that want to warm up their complexion ever so slightly as it's very soft and looks extremely natural, virtually undetectable. This one also has fine shimmer in it, however it's not noticeable once applied. I love using this throughout the colder months for when I'm pale and don't want something so obvious, as I said it adds the perfect amount of warmth.

  2. Completely sold on the Dior number. My generally corpse like complexion means that my (usable) bronzer collection is a bit measly x Becky
