I mean on bare skin with no foundation.

I do sometimes when I can't be bothered with a full face.

It looks great smile .

I do, especially when it's hot as I don't like the feeling of foundations or bb creams when I'm sweaty.

I do, makes me look more natural and just thought to look human grin

I do too. Makes me look glowier than my BB cream

I do use an illuminating primer too and I think it looks really fresh.

I do in summer once i've a bit of a tan. I use Benefit Hoola and it's got a nice matt effect that takes the shine off. I use a big brush and dust all over then put a dab of cream blusher on to avoid looking too one-colour iyswim?

Thanks for your replies. Do you wear just bronzer in winter too? What do you do about sunscreen as my normal moisturiser doesn't have it and I rely on my tinted moisturiser for it bit now even that slides off my face at any time of year due to hot flushes. Can you recommend a reasonably priced bronzer and is the compact powder better than the pearls? Sorry for all the questions.

Hello the 51 shade by bourjois is really subtle. I use on top of a tiny punt of concealer and a light touch of illuminating primer. I never wear foundation as I don't like the feel of it.
Les beiges in a darker shade is also good but expensive. I just use it for my handbag for light touch ups because of the price.
I am very very light with the bronzer though.
Poppy and faux fox are right about the primer and blush too. My cheeks are normally quite pink but I do wear benetint in winter.

Don't get pearls - they drop all over the bathroom floor, very annoying to have to keep cleaning up after them all the time.

Tinted moisturiser usually only has SPF 15 or so. Once you've applied it thinly as you do with makeup. you are prob only getting SPF 2.5-5.

So if you want SPF, you need to wear SPF as the amount in makeup isn't enough to be worthwhile.
