I have a love hate relationship with Summer. I love the warmer weather, sandals and grilling out. But I am fair skinned and not only never tan, but I burn and then freckle, therefore I can’t stand being directly under the hot sun. And since I would never wear shorts bearing white legs I fake it with both self tanner and bronzer.
I use a light to medium self tanner, but deepen the look with bronzer powder on top. Most bronzers, both liquid or powder, are very shiny and while they work for my body, it doesn’t work for my face. I have recently found the perfect bronzer for my face in Cosmedicine Matte Bronzing Powder with shine control.
The powder is a light colored bronze that can be deepened with reapplying. The color absorbs into the skin and keeps a matte, shine free look all day. $28 Available here.
