Happy birthday to me! ;)
Another bronzer from Fashionista to look at today. This one is an unusual one though - not matte, and very light indeed. The bronzer is Barcelona (£4)* and it's quite pretty.
As you can see, this is a pale bronzer, which being a pale skinned girl, I quite enjoy. On my skin, it could be used as a bronzer if applied quite heavily, or diffused out as a highlighter. Of course, the shimmer makes it impossible to use as a contour, but the champagney shimmer could also be applied as a brow highlight, or even a shadow.
On darker skins than mine this would make a lovely highlighter.
Sorry for the odd differences in lighting for both pictures, but I like how this adds a subtle warmth to my face (where I applied it across the cheeks, temples and down the nose) without looking overly bronzed, and yet adds a glow. I might layer this with a lightly shimmering blush to add dimension, but to add a warm glow to the face it works well alone. It also seems to help cancel out a little of the redness I tend to get across my cheeks.
I'd also like to apologise for my broken out face - a combination, I suspect, of a bad diet, stress and a change in shampoos of late.
What do you think?
