I’m already skeptical about my porcelain-hued face which is awesome during the winter, but in the summer looks quite unnatural or better extraterrestrial! Since it’s still a bit cold, we are not obliged to show too much skin, but face is always visible and should more or less adapt to Spring’s prerequisites. Bronzer is the first thing that comes to my mind, and a favorite word at the lips of top makeup artists. I need the perfect bronzer for now; I mean not something too deep and dark but a medium shade that matches lighter skins. I prefer powder because application is easier and safer but I could also do with a velvety soft creamy texture that helps my fingers glide onto my skin. Bronzers are basically placed on all the receding parts of the face sculpting, in a way, the perfect shape, but we should not forget to blend it all over, in the end, for a more natural, sun-kissed look. You don’t want to see “patchwork” on your face. Just smooth it out! Most of the packaging in these products is golden and luxurious, but ultimately the actual product should matter most. I went through some well-known brands because I know for sure that I will get great quality, but that doesn’t mean you cannot find affordable bronzers with equally good characteristics. Charlotte Tilbury is among my favorite makeup artists and her products seem to be delicious and smart, carrying with them all her expertise and experience from the most coveted fashion shows on earth. She’s always backstage making all the girls look beautiful and creating amazing trends. I also appreciate the research behind the Laura Mercier and Guerlain products. Especially… Guerlain which is all about luxury! Finally, I would definitely go for the trendsetters – the fashion designers who also produce incredible beauty and makeup lines – such as Burberry, Tom Ford, and Dior. I cannot give you my verdict right now but considering all the special features each one of the products has, I’ll definitely end up with one or two products that perfectly match me! I’ll let you know very soon!
