Five Foolproof Bronzers for Fair Skin


Five Foolproof Bronzers for Fair Skin

My last post (for now!) on fair/foolproof/hint-of-sun bronzers. I realise that I’m at the risk of boring to tears anyone who doesn’t need, want or suit them, but at the same time I’ve been trying to work systematically through my beauty backlog and Subtle Bronzers were one of the categories I wanted to get done and dusted (excuse the pun) before summer got started.

So here: five subtle bronzers at various price points. We have, clockwise from top left, Tom Ford’s Ultimate Bronzer in Bronze Age, Victoria Beckham’s in Saffron Sun, Benefit’s Hoola Lite, Bourjois’ Mat Illusion and The Body Shop’s Honey Bronze in shade 01. (All of the links above go to my full-page reviews of the individual bronzers.)

The Tom Ford is eye-wateringly expensive but gives a beautiful, goldenish (but somehow matte) glow and the cheapest, the Bourjois, is a great alternative to both the Victoria Beckham and Hoola Lite powders. Something for every budget, I hope. Take a look at the short and sweet video below to see things “in action”, so to speak – links to find the products online are further on down the page.
