Bronzed Pale Skin

Last week I posted about the free gift 17 Cosmetics are giving away when you spend £5.99 or more. I mentioned that I don't tend to use bronzer as I'm super pale so I feel like it's too dark for my skin.

This evening I decided to try all of the products in the Get Bronzed kit to see if they would work with my skintone and I was pleased with the result.

I already knew I liked the shades of eyeshadow and lipgloss so it was the the bronze cream blush I wasn't sure about but as long as you apply a small amount at a time it looks great. I dabbed a little on to my cheek and blended with a Sigma stippling brush (F50)

Products used:
  • 17 Blow Out Mascara in Black
  • 17 Bronzed Cream Blush
  • "Smog" from the Urban Decay Naked palette
  • Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser in Porcelain
  • 17 Eyes eyeshadow in "Statuesque"
  • 17 Ultimate Volume lipgloss in "In The Nude"
  • MAC Select Cover-Up concealer in NW15
  • Benefit The Porefessional primer
  • Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
  • Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner in "Lucky"
  • MUA Clear Mascara for the brows

So not only was this a brilliant freebie, it's also shown me that I can wear bronzer without looking like I've been tangoed!
