I need something to warm up my complexion, and usually use a cream blush but want to try bronzer (possibly bare minerals as I react to lots of make up ingredients). I've tried bronzers before that have just made my face look dirty as I have quite a yellow cast to my skin. Can anyone recommend what sort of colours I should be looking for, please? Thank you! X

I'll be watching this. I'm the same. My doctor (who I don't usually see) even arranged a blood test as I looked pale and yellowy. He wouldn't believe that I am actually this colour!

Do you tan well in the Summer? I do luckily, and its the only time I look 'normal'.

I use Chanel's Velvet lumier foundation with Clinique's cheek pop (I think that's what its called) and when I do, it deters the 'are you ok? you look tired' comments.

Yes, Rp, I don't tend to burn in summer at all, and do feel I look better with a bit of colour. My shoulders and back go really brown. Thanks for the tips re blusher!

Update: I've just been into town and tried on the 'high dive' bronzer from bare minerals. I think I look a bit orange, may have overdone it!

Also I put it on about an hour ago and my face feels really itchy!

They do something for dark yellow skin. But I'm pale yellow haha.

Me too but maybe if we just applied it lightly it would look ok?

I'm quite yellow and I use Benefit ' s Rocketeur. It's a cross between a blusher and bronzer.
