I can take or leave blusher, but with my natural rouged completion (read: tomato red cheeks), bronzer is kind of a must to even it all out a bit. A subtle wash of warmth across the face can make you look so much healthier, and give you the weekend away glow. Plus, done properly, you won't even need any other face products. Here are my top picks for bronzer this summer.
The Beautiful One - Clarins Aquatic Collection Bronzer - Because have you ever seen a more beautiful bronzer? Have you? Didn't think so. Get this one while you still can - I guarantee it won't be on sale for much longer.
The Bargain One - Essence Sun Club Blonde Bronzer - A couple of pounds for a makeup product I actually like. I'm in. Matte, subtle and never chalky or orange this is an everyday staple for me.
The Multipurpose One - Essence Sunclub 2 in 1 Bronzer - With highlighter and blush built in, this is one to sweep all over the face and go. Perfect for rushed mornings.
The Weekend Away One - Clarins Duo Bronzing Powder - For a full rave about how much I love this one you can visit here, but basically; a real mimicker of the sun's natural tan, this is one to use to trick people into thinking you've gone away for the weekend
The Half Contour One - Soap and Glory Solar Powder - Never orange, never chalky, this has just the right amount of cool tones to double up as a contour too, brilliant for when you need a bit more sculpting.
