I've been thinking to do this kind of post for a while. Sometimes choose the right product for using as a bronzer or to contour your face can be tough. Today I want to share with all of you my favourites products and experience. Hopefully this will be helpful for someone. 

Here there are my current favourites products. Three of them are Bronzers and two of them are technically Blushes but I use for contouring and actually I get excellent results. Let's take a look to them separately:

Nars Laguna is a kind of golden colour with subtle shimmer on it. This best selling bronzer is really beautiful. Good quality, easy to blend and build-able formula. Also, it is suitable for different skin tones, form pale to darker complexions. Personally I prefer to use this during summer time. I find this colour not perfect for winter when my skin is so pale, it can give a "dirty" effect. It is pricey.

Too Faced Chocolate Soleil has a matte chocolate brown colour. This is the darkest colour of the brunch,  is perfect for contouring. However I also find this too dark in a fair skin tone. It's not the most natural finish. Yes it has a chocolate scent.

The Body Shop Honey Bronzing Powder has been my latest acquisition and I'm really pleased with it. The formula is amazing, silky touch and apply nicely. It is completely matte and you can contour and do bronzing without looking too obvious. The colour number 1 is perfect for the palest skin tones. It has such a cute packaging with this honeycomb pattern and it is quite affordable. Worth to try!

Burberry Light Glow Blush in Earthy was my discovery from the past year and it soon became my signature. I just love this so much. It has a brown/taupe colour and in my opinion it gives the most natural shadow to your cheeks. Highly recommend for the lightest complexions. The quality and texture are fantastic, silky, easy to blend and build-able colour. Perfection! I did a full review of this here if you fancy take a look.

Last we have Nars Douceur Blush. This has been in my wishlist for long and finally got it during Christmas. It has a pink-brown colour and it is perfect for those days you want to give to your face a very natural touch. Apply this on your cheekbones and will instantly give you a very soft contouring, which look fresh and natural.

Here there are the swatches in my skin tone:

Have you got a favourite? To sum up all this information, you can find below a chart with all the main characteristics of the mentioned products.

I hope you enjoy this. Hopefully this will be helpful for someone. 

Have a great day,
