Believable bronze!

JLo is known for elegant use of bronzersBronzers are tricky. All you have to do is take one look at a few of the overly-tanned and brazenly-bronzed reality stars running around these days to know that it is easy to go from golden goddess to scary copper cougar. These potent products used the wrong way can add years to your look, making a 20-year-old look 30, and a 40-year-old look like her own mother.
Not only do bronzers require a light touch but they also need to be a flattering shade for your complexion. Be sure to look at the colour in direct sunlight.
Guerlain makes some of the best bronzers you can find. Guerlain introduced the original Guerlain Terracotta bronzer in 1984. It was an instant success. Guerlain also was one of the first companies to understand that bronzers, like all other makeup, had to come in different shades. One of my favourites is their oversized Limited Edition Terra Neroli Giant Bronzing Powders. The shades of shimmering peach, bronze, and gold are designed to give your face and body a radiant glow.
Two other fabulous bronzers I mentioned briefly last week are a liquid bronzer from Josie Marin and a powder from Wet N’ Wild. One is a luxury product and the other a drugstore brand. Both are good value and fabulous on.
Josie Maran Bronzing Argan Oil is a luxurious, natural way to get a little glow. Maran’s Bronzing Argan Oil contains Argan oil which is rich in Vitamin E and essential fatty acids. You can apply touch where you need a lift. The sheer colour can be applied for different levels of intensity. The colour of this bronzer is beautiful. It has warmth that is not apparent when you look at it right out of the bottle. You need to blend it to see the beauty. You can make it lighter or darker by applying more or less of it. This is excellent if you are very fair-skinned.
Buy it from QVC and get a travel size of Josie's Argan Color Stick in Pink Peony, a gorgeous, wearable pink for lips and cheeks, which is perfect for this look. This is a gorgeous bronzer; it looks both sexy and elegant for day and evening.
If you are looking for pure shimmer at a bargain price try Wet N’ Wild Coloricon Bronzer SPF 15. I am in love with this bronzer. I wear the light pearlized shade, Reserve Your Cabana with the reddish-bronze shade, Bikini Contest. (There is also a classic bronze Ticket to Brazil.) The quality of the powder is amazing. It feels like silk and looks very natural. At only $3.99 the Coloricon bronzer comes in three shades.
