Favorite Bronzer's
With Summer right around the corner, what are your favorite bronzers? Drug store or high end. What type of brush do you apply it with? Do you use it for contouring?

I absolutely love bareMinerals Bronzing Mineral Veil. It is a loose, matte finishing powder. I use it every day.

I use the bareMinerals Flawless Application Face Brush to apply it. It is a rounded brush & I've used it to apply bronzers for years. Got it with my first purchase of BE Warmth.

I apply a very light coat over my whole face and then go back & use it for contouring. It is a subtle look that can be worn year round the way I use it but it can be applied darker & probably is by most people.

Although this is a finishing powder I use Mally's Poreless Face Defender over it as a final step. I find it will hold my finished look better than anything else.

I have such pale skin, any bronzer makes me look like I have dirt on my face :laugh:

You might like the BMV I mention about. It combines a light bronzer with mineral veil, a finishing powder. No one ever tells me I look tan when I wear it. You just put very little on the brush & tap the loose powder off before applying.

For bronzing my face, I like Smoky Mountain Minerals Light Bronzer. It is especially formulated for lighter skintones. Ordinarily I can't wear most bronzers because they make me look orange, muddy or fake but, this one is different. It looks very natural on my pale skin. Its a loose mineral powder, I apply it with my fluffy EcoTools powder brush.
For contouring, I use Smoky Mountain Minerals Sunkissed Bronzer, which is darker. I apply this to my cheeks with an angled blush brush and blend it with a kabuki brush. This is also a loose mineral powder.
I set everything with Smoky Mountain Minerals Sheer Glow Veil using my EcoTools powder brush.
