i did this look on the weekend, of course to test some new products but i also took pre- and post-contour pics and was quite surprised about the result!
i was never a bronzer person, but i think this year i might get to like them - what do you think?
|Hourglass Veil foundation in No.1 + Clarins Everlasting Foundation in 105 Nude + BeautyBlender|
|Laura Mercier Mineral Powder in Real Sand + A'Squirrel Pure Squirrel Powder Brush|
|Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer in 010 Ivory + Hakuhodo 212 + Shiseido brow pencil in GY901 + Alverde brow gel + Shu Uemura lash curlers + The Body Shop Big&Curvy mascara + L'Oreal Super Liner + UDPP|
|MAC Vex with Sigma ss239 in inner corners + Artdeco #206 with Hakuhodo B532BkSL on the lid and lower lashline + Barry M Dazzle Dust in #89 Oyster Grey with Hakuhodo S142 in the crease + Rouge Bunny Rouge Crease Brush to blend|
and this is how i looked at this point, without any blusher or contour.
|Benefit Hoola with MAC 138 as cheekbone contour|
|Edward Bess Ultra Luminous Bronzer in Daydream with Paula Dorf Powder Brush to warm up the skin on the outer parts of the face and to soften the contour.|
|MAC Mocha blush + A'Squirrel Pure Squirrel Blush Brush|
|Laura Mercier Shimmer Bloc in Mosaic with A'Squirrel Pure Squirrel Angled Blush Brush|
here is the finished look:
again, to compare:
i think it brings a lot of life back into the face. i also like the warmth the bronzer gives me. it doesn't look as scary fake as i have associated with bronzer before (my trauma of seeing too many palest girls slapping on their whole bronzer compact to fake a sun-goddess-tan - of course it only looked worse) - i should have listened to Galen ;)
