Who doesn’t crave sun-kissed skin? Whether you’re jetting away soon or you’ve got the holiday blues, one thing’s for sure – you need Tom Ford’s Bronzing powder in your life.
I’m a self-confessed make up junkie and have tried every brand under the sun from mass to prestige brands; my go-to bronzer for a perfect faux glow has always been Estee Lauder’s Bronze Goddess. Until now.
I’ll be honest, the lure of the Tom Ford counter in Selfridges gets me every time; it’s a haven of luxury beauty and I’ve spent many of my lunch times just browsing the counter thinking about my next pay day purchase. I wasn’t on the lookout for a new bronzer, it was actually the stunning white packaging (see the pic below) that caught my eye! Launched especially for Summer 2016, the white packaging exudes glamour and luxe (the perfect combination…) and the bronzer itself is an exclusively formulated blend of sunstone, amber and black tourmaline. The sunstone and amber give the stunning sunkissed colour whilst the black tourmaline gives the subtle shimmer…
I’ve always been a fan of powder bronzers rather than liquid bronzers (mainly because I find liquid bronzers messy and they can go patchy and be hard to top up). The Tom Ford Soleil Bronzing Powder in ’01 Gold Dust’ is absolutely amazing – it’s got a slight shimmer to it which is ideal for a day to evening look. Equally, you can create a slightly heavier contoured look for evening without looking like you work alongside the Umpa Lumpa’s at Willy Wonka’s factory. Ideal really.It’s a beautiful natural, sunkissed shade with a subtle shimmer that really does make skin look golden. It’s silky, lightweight texture feels lovely on my skin and makes it look almost #flawless.
I always apply my bronzer in a figure of three on each side of my face (forehead to cheek to chin) – try it if you haven’t before. It’s one of the best tips I’ve ever come across in the beauty industry. I’m a fan of a medium to full coverage foundation so don’t like adding ‘heavy’ bronzers or blushers. Tom Ford’s bronzer makes me look like I’ve got a nice tan all year round yet it’s buildable for after work drinks or evenings out.
There are three shades in this particular range; Bronze Age, Gold Dust and Terra but the Tom Ford consultant will obviously match you up to your shade. Priced at £50, it’s one of the pricier bronzers on the market but it will last you (it’s giant!) and is an excellent investment to be a glamorous gal all year round…
You can buy this sunkissed gem from Selfridges.
