As I love bronzing powders to give my pale skin healthier look, i had to get this one for myself. The powder itself feels heavenly on skin. It is soft, smooth and finely milled. Whenever I use it I still have to use a light hand as it is quite pigmented bronzer, so if you are just like me, really light skinned, please, do not brush it with a heavy hand. Try it out applying little by little, adding the color until you achieve the tone you desire. I really love the way this bronzer adds warmth to my face.
The formula of this bronzing powder is actually bomb.It is buttery and velvety.It is not patchy on the skin.It blends out so easily and gave me the perfect bronzy glow.This is definitely a buildable bronzer.Not too cool,not too warm.Just right.But there are a lot of great bronzer in the market.Guerlain is too expensive and the price for this bronzer seems a little too ridiculous.
This product is a versatile palette with four buildable, matte shades for bronzing and contouring.
Key benefits and ingredients:
Bronze or highlight your best features with these four, graduated matte tones that are perfect for contouring. Use the deeper tones to sculpt and define features, and use the lighter tones to highlight. This perfect selection of shades can also be used to create a natural, sunkissed glow. Easily adaptable as your complexion changes from season to season, they can be used alone or blended together to create your ideal color. The powder’s unique fragrance is a joyful blend of bergamont and mandarin blended with sunny, feminine notes of gardenia—while the woody, vanilla notes offer a hint of mystery.
-Apply shades deeper than your natural skintone to create depth and definition. Using a blush brush, sweep it closest to your natural skintone under the cheekbone, in the hollow of cheeks to create a more sculpted look.
-Using an eye shadow brush, apply a deeper shade in the crease of the eyelids to make eyes look more deep set, or sweep down the sides of the nose for a more streamlined look.
-Use shades lighter than your natural skin tone to open and illuminate features. Sweep it over the cheekbones to make them pop and under and over the eyebrows to make eyes look open and lifted.
-Sweep down the bridge of the nose for a more contoured look.
-Using Guerlain's signature “3” gesture, apply with the Terracotta brush by tracing a figure three on each side of the face. Start by sweeping across the forehead, down and around the cheekbones, then down along the jaw line to the chin.
-Don’t forget to blend from the jawline to the neck to create a seamless glow without any trace of lines.
