top 3 bronzers & giveaway!

No girls makeup bag is complete with out some kind of bronzer! I thought I'd share with you my top 3 favourite bronzing products that I use all year round to give my skin that gorgeous, 
sun kissed glow!

Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel Bronze Universel
First off, the packaging for this product is stunning! This bronzer does it for me, it is of a cream consistency which is extremely easy to apply, has the slightest shimmer and smells very fruity! I would recommend this bronzer for any skin tone, however, if you are very pale, it does need to be applied with a light hand as too much can look a little orange! This can also be used as a base colour underneath your foundation or even over the top, to give your skin a bit more colour overall, which is perfect for the Summer months!
This is more of a treat at a pricey £31, however, this large 30g pot lasts a long time!

Nars Laguna Bronzer
Good old trusty Nars Laguna! This is a must for your collection if you don't have it already. Again, applying very easily and extremely wearable, this powder bronzer is a very light shade, but build-able if you require heavier colour . With gorgeous gold flecks running through it, it is sure to give you that healthy, bronzed look! Best worn on areas where the sun would naturally hit, such as temples, cheek bones and jawline.  
Another bank breaker at £29, but a little goes a long way and I promise you will not be disappointed!

MAC Powder Blush - Blunt
Unfortunately now discontinued, but possibly available on certain sites, this matte bronzing powder is perfect for contouring. I apply this just underneath my cheekbones to make them look defined and sculpted, and as it contains no shimmer at all, it gives much more of a natural look. One other highly raved about matte bronzer would be Benefit's Hoola bronzer, available for a more affordable £23.50.

L-R Chanel, Nars, MAC

Now for the bit you've all been waiting for and I decided this giveaway prize would fit in perfectly with this post! I will be giving away the Bourjous Chocolate Bronzing powder, a product I haven't personally tried but is highly reviewed and recommended by many beauty guru's! I swatched it before purchasing and can say it is very light in colour, with pretty flecks of gold, and an added bonus, it smells like chocolate! The perfect product for any chocoholics out there, you will be smelling as sweet as you look!

This giveaway is now closed!
