Bronzing Powder

[ Edited ]

Lookng for some suggestions for bronzing powder.....let's hear what  you've got.  I should mention, in foundation colors, I normally use "medium."  My complexion is fair with redness that I like to try to tone down....blonde/white hair.

Hourglass. Good for light cool toned complexions if that applies to you.

 

Edited to add: I use the color Nude Bronze Light.

I love Bobbi Brown, and Adrien(Signature Club A). She has one that I purchased over a year ago, and I haven't even made a dent in it. It is beautiful, and you need such a tiny tiny bit.

 

My Bobbi Brown is really nice as well, and I use it a lot, both Bobbi and Adrien have shimmer.

 

The one I use when I don't want any shimmer is Laura Geller Balance N Brighten......I love this one as well, and it is probably the one I reach for most often......

 

The Bobbi Brown is Antigua, and the Signature Club A is Nefertitti, I believe......

Not many things I like from the line, but...IT has a wonderful bronzer called Bye Bye Pores bronzer -  

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Pressed Bronzer with Brush - A303967

 

I'm sure it can be purchased without the brush as this one is not one I'd use for bronzer application.  It smells awesome - like fresh coconuts!   Definitely worth giving a try - good luck!

 

I formerly used for many years Bobbi Brown's bronzer but I actually like this one better.

I kept buying it and never getting it to look right.  Not the fault of the product, I think it takes a lot of talent to know how and where to apply it.

I have fair pinkish skin with light blonde hair. I really like Bare Minerals. Little Sun.

I’m a fan of Bobbi brown’s medium bronzing powder. It’s not orange, has a bit of red in it, not too dirty brown or muddy. It’s the color my skin used to turn after a nice sunny holiday. I apply bronzer where the sun would hit my face, I don’t really use it as contour. Lisa Eldridge has a nice video online about bronzer.

@seaswirl   I'm confused that you're fair, but wear medium foundation. It would seem the foundation shade would tone down the redness. Bronzer normally does not do that since it's usually reddish/brown/orange by nature. It's used to warm the complexion.

 

Anyway, BB is famous for some natural shades of bronzers.
