A big thanks to the gorgeous India for giving me the opportunity to guest post on her site. I'm Georgina and I blog about all things beauty, fashion and food (lots and lots of food) over at foxonthehunt.com. Come and say hello!
Given that the majority of us have been hit with some seriously warm weather recently I thought it would be a good time to dig out the best bronzers in my stash. I've included a bit of everything - matte, frosted, liquid and even a blush!
First up, the blush. Sleek's 'Antique' sweeps on as a dusky rose with a hint of purple, shot through with silver highlight. It's unusual and brings something different to the cheek game compared to our usual pinks and peaches. I often switch out my bronzer for this as it has a darker quality that does the job of contouring and blush in one. Applied lightly across the cheekbones and blended out to the ear perks up a day look or it can be built up to a vampy, contoured evening look. It reminds me a little of MACs 'Breath of Plum'(which has really strong lilac tones) in that it sits beautifully across the whole spectrum of skin tones. At less than £5, it's a steal.
I couldn't round up my favourite bronzers without giving a shout out to The Body Shop's Honey Bronze. It's the perfect product for contouring as it's more of a camel shade rather than having the orange undertones you can generally expect from bronzers. It's matte, has a soft buttery texture and smells INCREDIBLE (a blend of honey and chocolate). A staple in my make-up bag and well worth it's £13 price tag.
Next up is my guilty pleasure of the bunch. MACs MSF in 'Gold Deposit' – the darkest of the cult mineralize skin finish quintet. It’s packed into the pan in flaky, high frost, velvety soft layers. My go to for sunny days or nights out when you want more a kick – I pack it on across my cheekbones for a bronzy, highlighted hit. It’s definitely not subtle, but it leaves you gorgeous and glowy and though it packs a punch at £23, like the rest of the MSF it lasts for months and months. Worth every penny.
My final pick is another MAC love – their limited edition Lustre Drops in ‘Sun Rush’. This is a versatile product – a water based, pearlised liquid highlight that smoothes in to leave a sheer glow. It can be amped up by building layers, or can be mixed with foundation or tinted moisturiser to give your base a dewy bronze glow. Perfect when you’re after something a bit more subtle. A bottle will set you back £18, but a little goes a long way.
I’d love to get the low down on your favourite bronzers! Send your recommendations my way via tweets @foxonthehunt_ or leave a comment below.
