I am using this now to help my face match the rest of my body which is about 2 shades darker. I wear hats and tons of sunscreen on my face, my body gets sunscreen but obviously not enough
I am fair - NW20 and most bronzers don't look good on me. I would say this is for fair - light medium skin tones. Undertones are neutral to perhaps a slight pink beige. No orange
I typically do not like bronzers, and use sparingly if at all. Most look fake on me. They show up as too orange, too red, too muddy, too dark, sparkly, powdery, thick, scented, shiny, packaged in HUGE packaging or boxes that do not slide easily into my make up bag, or worse made in CHINA
I am happy with is one, as it really suits my skin tone and has all the right things that I look for in a product
1. Sheer enough but does give color that is very natural looking on my current skin tone
2. So easy to apply it blends like a dream doesn't leave patches doesn't start with a dark spot
3. Not powdery, it is light and airy
4. Packing is the bomb. Slimline, compact, easy to toss into your make up bag.
5.. No scent !
6. Goof Proof
7. No glitter no sparkles not a thick drab powder either
8. MADE IN USA .......(packaging is China)
9. Silicone to help blend which suits me just fine others may not like it
I first dip into the product with a huge large fluffy Real Techniques brush and do the Lisa Eldridge thing, that is pat it on the back of my hand to remove the excess powder. Lisa Eldridge is my favorite make up artist, the only person I now watch as these you-tubers have gone crazy piling on the product to look good on camera and make money.
I start sweeping it on at the temples, then cheeks and jawline and neck and where ever I look a bit too pale. It is fast and simple sort of goof proof. I may try it as an eye shadow as well (I have very sensitive eyes very few shadows work for me)
Here is my routine or barely any make up - make up that is really simple. It looks really natural. On certain days I will add NARS TM but for now:
1. TONS of Moisturizer for my uber dry skin
2. Bit of concealer
3. Bronzer as eyeshadow and darken the outer corners with a darker shade
4. Tarte bronzer as face coloring, down neck as well
5. Maybelline dark black mascara (thin wand) has replaced all other HE mascaras
6. Shu Umura eyebrow pencil (the absolute best no dupe exists)
7. Lip gloss (or lippie of choice)
Its a pretty simple day routine for spring / summer as least make up as needed.
I have enough redness in my cheeks to skip the blush
I see reviews calling this a mineral talc free bronzer. It does have talc as an ingredient
