To Do: Bronzer

My pale skin (really, so very pale) is out of fashion now that the sun is out and my tweeds are put away. The advent of spring means that it is time to get serious with the bronzer.

I normally wear some bronzer everyday, but it needs to be stepped up in spring and summer. My go-to bronzer is comes in a big tin from Cargo. It's pricey at $25, even though that tin will last forever. Alternately, Wet n Wild Mega Glow Face Illuminator cream is great stuff. And it's only $1, which makes me love it even more.

A big Sonia Kashuk brush is perfect for both the powder and the cream. I'm not sure if make-up artists would agree, but I like brushing bronzer above and below my eyes. That's my palest part and the bronzer really brightens it up.

In conclusion: Bronzer. Available for many different prices. So much better than a real tan.

The gift right now at Clinique has a cute little bronzer called Sunkissed. I love the color and the small size makes me not worry so much about dropping it. Check it out!

Is your electricity back? If so, yay!

MissScientistSF said...

Umm.. no. So no yay. I have a good feeling that it might be when we get home though. I don't know why. Blind optimism I guess.

Oh man! You really do live in the back woods. That's crazy! ;)

Um. No, I don't really live in the backwoods. You saw my house! I live in one of the fanciest neighborhoods in Chapel Hill! I think I am just unlucky.

I haven't tried one of those before and have your same complexion. I thought it might look orangey on my face, but if you think it looks good, I can sure try it for a dollar.
