At Style Cabana, we’re always searching for the best of the best, especially when it comes to beauty products. Our task this week? To find the best bronzer for your face that money can buy. No easy task with so many great facial bronzers on the market. We took our search to the Nordstrom Beauty Counter on Michigan Avenue to find out what the hottest selling brand of bronzers is at Nordstrom and just what makes it so appealing!
And the winner is Guerlain- their bronzing powders are hydrating, always being updated, and also have the largest variety per skin tone.
Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder is their moisturizing bronzing powder that glides on effortlessly giving a beautiful hint of color. The shade ranges from 00 to 08 giving the customer a wide variety of color matching. For lighter skin, the bronzers can be used as a soft, warm blush or applied evenly for a sun kissed looked. Darker skin tones can find a more uniform complexion, enhanced glow and an overall luminous effect. The powder itself is incredibly hydrating, which can be seen and felt as you apply the product. It’s very smooth and controllable. Some bronzers can be streaky, grainy and appear heavy handed even when the technique used to apply the bronzer is not. Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder can be used to give color to other parts of your body. Sun kissed shoulders and collar bones and are always a sexy summer statement. Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder is the perfect bronzer; gorgeous and effective.
Guerlain 'Terracotta - Four Seasons' Bronzer is a quad of color allowing the blonde or brunette to customize their tan year round. It’s an interesting combination of natural, matte, yet a dewy look without being too shimmer or sparkly. The quad of color is perfect for a year round tan that can be adjusted to light to natural to a bit heavier as you permit. It’s very even on the skin and helps to smooth out imperfections while adding color. Apply with a large blush or power for an all over glow.
Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder Mist (SPF 10) is also a popular buy. It comes with an estimated 130 flawless applications per can and an SPF of 10. We loved that fact that a spray on bronzer has an SPF (the best of both worlds). Don’t be afraid to try this product, a little goes a long way and the application process is not as hard as it appears to be- great color and very user friendly.
Bronzer Makeup Tip: Add a touch more bronzer to the tip of your nose and high forehead to mirror the suns effects!
