Smashbox Bronze Lights Bronzer
Shade: Warm Matte
Continuing with my Sephora haul, I picked up this bronzer to try and warm up my complexion a bit as being quite fair, I can look a little washed out and pale; I decided to enlist the help of a bronzer as I’m not about to lie in the sun and tan myself as not only do I have a regular and ongoing dark spots/brightening treatment in my skincare routine and am a proponent of proper suncare, I’m also prone to getting terrible blotchy heat rashes. It’s definitely not a good look to rock on vacay or any time, really. 🙁
Although I’m a fan of a nice shimmer, the fact that this is matte is good for a more natural, everyday look and I know that I can add a touch of color to my skin without looking orange all over. In terms of usage, I used my Smashbox Telephoto 3-in-1 brush to apply this bronzer to my complexion. In addition to being very fine and smooth, the lasting power is quite strong with this product — a good 8 hours or a regular work day. As it is infused with Photoset Mineral Complex, this formula helps ensure that the skin looks sunkissed. You can use the bronzer to create a natural, fresh-faced bronzed look or for contouring, which I have done while alternating it with the contour shade that is included in the Smashbox Contour Kit.
Although there is a plethora of choices for bronzers out there, I’m going to stick with this Smashbox one as it will last me for quite some time and its quality ensures that I will get great colour and effect no matter what kind of look I’m going for <3
