A Pale Girls Bronzer

Being so pale in the Summer is just generally a nightmare. I basically look like a ghost year round but in the Summer months I look even worse. I have always been pale (an NC15) so when I find a product that helps me look a little more glowly and darker I will use it until the end of time. All you pale girls, this bronzer could be your new best friend..

Bourjois Choclate Bronzing Powder

This is the Bourjois Choclate Bronzing Powder and gosh do I love it. I purchased it back when I was doing a swap with Rosina and she mention that she wanted to try it so I picked up two so I could have one as well and I am so glad that I did. As you could properly guess from the name, it smells like chocolate. I love chocolate so a bronzer that smell like that is just a winner for me. Once applied you can't smell it, it would be a little weird if your face smelt of chocolate but I do find myself sniffing the pan every now and again.

The bronzer itself is almost completely matte, in the pain there are a few shimmers but nothing that shows up too massively on the skin. I like to take my Real Techniques Blush Brush and apply this in the '3 C' motion, where the sun would naturally hit your face and also a little bit down my nose and on my chin. 

This bronzer defiantly gives a sun kissed look without making you look too orange or muddy. Perfect for the pale girls, like myself, as it isn't dark at all. Because it is a lighter bronzer, if you go in too heavy handed you aren't going to look like a orange walking down the street and if you do go in too heavy handed this bronzer blends very well so you can reserve that mishap if it does happen one morning.

This bronzer really does help warm up my face and make me look a lot less like a ghost in the Summer months and I defiantly recommend if you are extremely pale like me. This bronzer retails for £6.99, I believe it does actually some in two shades so if you are naturally a little bit darker skined than I am that one might be better for you. 

Have you tried this? What did you think?
