My Bronzer Collection

Hi Lovelies! I don't know about you, but summer is my favorite season. I love spending time at the beach and pool soaking in the sun. Although I enjoy tanning, I try to keep my face from getting too much exposure (we don't want premature aging!) That is why I love bronzing powders; they give a natural glow to your face without harmful side effects.

I have four bronzing powders in my collection:

-Physicians Formula Bronze Booster
-Mac Golden Bronzing Powder
-Clinique Almost Bronzer
-Nars Laguna Bronzer

All of these bronzers provide a nice all-over glow. I have had the Clinique Almost Bronzer the longest and it gives a very subtle bronzing effect. I purchased Mac's Golden Bronzing Powder last year from a collection and it's nice, but I don't reach for it all that often. Nars Laguna works well for an all-over bronzer or for contouring. You need to be careful when applying it or it can end up looking dirty, which is not attractive. Lastly, Physician's Formula is a pretty decent bronzer, especially for a drugstore product. It provides a really pretty subtle glow that looks very natural.

Above are swatches of the bronzing powders. I did heavy swatches so that the colors would show up well against my skin-tone. Although I enjoy and use all of these bronzing powders, I am always on the lookout for something better. What are your favorite bronzers for summer? Let me know in the comments below. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Hi there, thank you for taking your time for reading my blog :) You have a lovely collection of bronzers there, I really want to try phiscian formula though :o to bad we dont have it in London.

    As a response to your question, there are variety of Cream colour bases to choose from and you can use it for your eyes, lips and your cheeks. It reall depends what you want it for. As a versatile product I like using my Cream colour base as a highlight, I would suggest trying Mac cream colour base in SHELL, as its closer to skin tone and you can use this to highlight your cheekbones and The bridge of your nose. However, Pearl is a nice colour but i wouldt say its an easy colour to wear, cus I've got a tan skin colour and on me it just looks really frosty. If your skin tone is more on a fair side, this is would be quite nice :)
