Hello! After the sun has been out in England (shock!!) and I've been on holiday somethings just aren't matching up. My foundations are all a little on the pale side and while I am not wearing it all the time at the moment, when I do I need to bronze it up. I spoke to the girl in Space NK who matched me when I was choosing my shade of Sheer Glow and I decided to go with my 'actual' skin colour and bronze up after my holidays, so here's what I've been doing.

My favourite duo for bronzing up is the Real Techniques Duo Fiber Face Brush with the Bourjois Bronzing Powder - the one that looks like chocolate. My Nars Sheer Glow shade is Deauville which is normally the perfect match but as I said, all this sun has bronzed up my face! I think this brush is great because of the duo-fiberness as it doesn't pick up too much product or put too much on and makes the product super easy to blend out. Also, this brush has a slight flatness to it, so it's also really good for contouring! Bourjois got their colouring right with this product! I think I have one of the lightest shades as I like to just keep it subtle so that it matches my neck and brightens up my complexion. It's not too orange, brown or dark and just makes me have a bit of a glow which is the way I like it!

Have you tried this bronzer? Are you also bronzing up this summer?


  1. I just bought this bronzer and love it! Such a great shade - it's similar to Hoola by benefit but so much more affordable x

    1. I think Hula is slightly more contour-ish but I love it too and definitely think you can use it either way! Agree with the pricing!!
