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.
