I always hear about people needing to find a good bronzer. A suitable one which could be used throughout the day time and not look too dark and over the top .. Or a night one which doesn't leave you looking like a orange drag ! We've all had it were we look on photos the next day and see a huge streak up the side of our faces ! I have naturally an olive complexion and find this bronzer perfect for contouring my cheeks.
Nars Bronzing Powder - £24
This powder is available in three shades, Laguna - Being the lightest, Irresistablement, and Casino - the darkest.
Laguna (Lightest shade)
I use Laguna which is the lightest shade. They say that this is for light skin tones and the Casino , the darkest shade, is for an olive complexion but I personaly find that this works amazingly and is the perfect shade for what I want out of it.
When using it for contouring, I find it is amazing. It isn't too dark to make you look like your dying but gives a subtle shading with max effect ! It has a warmer tone to it as well, which allows for it to be used all over your face for a sun kissed, fresher look !
What I used to find in some bronzers I used, was the shimmer in them produced an effect which made me look like a childrens entertainer. It was over powering when I would step under a light or when a photo was taken. This has minimal shimmer which doesn't leave the feeling of a disco ball but gives a nice natural glow under the cheek bones and to where ever else you would use it.
I would recommend this to light - olive skin tones. But if you are looking for a harsher more defined look when contouring or bronzing I would pick a darker shade. Although it is expensive, if you are looking for a cheaper alternative - I would chose one which has a small amount of shimmer and a golden peachy undertone which accentuates your complexion.
If you want to get an idea to the intensity I have I have read about Kourtney Kardashian using it with her glowing skin tone and also Audrina Partridge who has a lighter skin tone..
