How to get that golden glow, whatever your skin type

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA No two skin tones are the same which means when it comes to bronzers it, simply isn’t a “one shade suits all” kind of show. Parisian Beauty brand, Guerlain has revolutionised the way we bronze now offering 8 shades of Bronzing radiance under the stunning signature Terracotta branding.

There are 3 shades for the blonde rosy toned complexions and a further 5 for darker brunettes, to ensure everyone is able to experience the lightly fragranced and moisturising formula whilst warming up their make-up simaltaneously.

Personally I have found them to be the perfect cosmetic companion for transitioning your make up from Winter through to Summer using well selected shades from the range. I’m currently using shade 03-Naturel Brunettes to warm up my existing foundation as the warmer weather sets in. My Skin tone darkens slightly, as it naturally does throughout Spring/Summer, and can sometimes vary from day to day which means my “Every Day Face” needs to constantly be adapted. A little more of 03 on Monday Morning could quite easily be a dusting of 07 by Friday depending on what the weather man says.

The Guerlain Terracotta Bronzer range is now a staple in my make-up bag and my absolute must have bronzer of the moment.

What is your favourite bronzer and how do you adapt your make up through the seasons?

    This post has definitely made me want to try this range! I currently use Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess in light, I have really fair skin and don’t really tan so rely on a light fake tan to give me a summery glow x

      Î work for this brand and I can tell you it’s the best bronzer you can find and that’s why. You can find the perfect color for every skin, it’s stay all day and it doesn’t look cakey even at the end of the night.

      And trust me I tried a lot of bronzers but if you want the effortless Parisian glow .. you will only have it with this one.

    I’m so pleased Guerlain have introduced additional shades in the range as the original terracotta bronzes were always too dark for my skin tone. I’m currently using Chanel Bronze Universal, a staple I’ve been using for ages.
    Hugs Adele xoxo

    Another brilliant blog post! Thank you! Just wondering if the Topshop lip contour was a recent purchase as I’m struggling to find it and it looks amazing on you. Thanks 🙂 Xxx

    These look great! I am so boring when it comes to makeup, I wear the same bronzer until it runs out and then I get a new one. Basically I wear the same makeup day or night, summer or winter.

    I seriously need to branch out more.

    Also, “shop my face” made me lol. Love it.

    X Hayley
