Could someone very pale look as sunkissed as this?
Ok, I know no cosmetics are going to make me look like Giselle, but I have this magazine on my kitchen table and I keep looking longingly at her golden complexion. It inspired me to root around for my Guerlain bronzer which even though it's the palest shade did make an improvement to my milk bottle pallor
What are your favourite products to make you look as if you've just come back from the Bahamas?
Maybe its my crappy phone, but to me she looks like her bronzer/make-up is too dark. She looks a bit dirty. I struggle with bronzers cos I'm so pale. The guerlain one is ok, but I think my favourite is rimmel sun. It's pale with no sparkles.
I do get what previous posters have meant re some products giving an unnatural look. God knows, I've had a more than a few oompa loompa moments in the past.
So, take it from me the Clarin mousse is the dog bollocks for those that are fair of face.
Salonskincare is the cheapest I've found online £19.99 with free delivery and as I put my money where my mouth is I ordered some today.
I do favour the porcelain look over winter but I feel spring is around the corner so will be ready for when the sun comes out. I always wear a high factor on my face so hence the need for a bit of a faked glow comr summer.
It doesn't go anywhere near as dark as Fake Bake etc. I would use the fantastically cheap as chips St Moritz on my body at this time of year. It doesn't go dark, just gives a subtle glow. I only use the Clarins on my face and neck as it is expensive.
I've never tried mixing it with moisturizer tbh. Why not put it on for a couple of hours and see what you think of the colour then?
