I like these Bobbi Brown Illuminating Bronzers… they’re lovely for fair skin types who quite like the idea of bronzers but just don’t really know how to make them work.

I own a few…

Antigua, Maui and now Bali Brown.

In hindsight, I should have probably gone one stop paler and plumped for Aruba, but never mind… I like a challenge!

Bali Brown is a golden bronze that stops short of looking dirty on my skintone.  It is a much warmer bronzing shade than I’d normally dare to reach for, but with a light hand it warms up my complexion without looking too bronzy!

It contains a fairly subtle sparkle, so as with my other Bobbi Brown Illuminating Bronzers.. I wouldn’t use this as a contour shade.  We aren’t even close to disco cheeks territory though… this is safe to use with a little bit of reckless abandon.  A little bit, I said.

I’ve just had a thought… is it ok to wear bronzer in the Winter?  I’m one of those people that need a hint of colour on their cheeks to avoid that “freshly dug up” look.  Will I be commiting some kind of cosmetic faux pas dusting this on my cheeks once the clocks go back?!

I mean… I just freakin’ spent £23.50 on it, so I’m gonna rock it through wind, rain and snow regardless.  I just won’t tell anyone when I’m doing it 😉

Do you bronze regardless of the changing seasons?

    Well, see it this way: if you’d go for ski holidays, you’d also get bronzed, right? 😀

  2. Mercedes says:

    I do. I love bronzers. I have a massive collection and I tend to change the shade depending on the season or I apply less os my all time favourites.
    At the moment I’m loving the Contour Kit in Medium by Sleek…such a great value for money!

    i think it’s fine to wear bronzers during winter. it warms up the face nicely. just don’t overdo the bronzer i think 🙂
    i’ve always wanted to try antigua! saw it before on a magazine cover model..so pretty!

  4. Janie says:

    Whilst I have finally decided to embrace my paleness aged 27 a hint of bronzer is always required to give at least a little colour.
    As long as you don’t overdo it and look like a tangerine dream of course 🙂

  5. I think bronzer is fine all year long. I try to make a habit of contouring year round but usually I’m just lazy. Us palies need some color so we don’t get the “are you sick?” questions!

  6. Rae says:

    Of *course* you can bronze in the winter! I always assumed that was half the reason why it existed in the first place — to keep us bronzed when we couldn’t actually… get bronzed outside.

    And ooh, is that ever pretty 🙂 Definitely pretty enough to wear year-round, if you ask me.

    I love love love bronzers and i definitely think its cool to bronze all year long.. (p/s I have summer 365 hehe) 😉

    I bronze all year round. As a pasty white Canadian, I need a little bit of colour so that I don’t blend in with all the snow here.
    I have quite the collection too; different shades for different moods and degrees of snowfall hahaha.

    Hello! I bought this in Maui a while back, and loving it very very much! Use it more as a blusher though.

    First time commenting here. Lovely blog!

  11. Dempeaux says:

    I bronze whenever I feel like it! If I feel like lighter cheeks, I just go for blush, but if I’m looking a bit too much like a fan of The Cure, I apply some bronzer irrespective of the season 🙂

  12. Tina says:

    I bronze ALL year long, regardless of where I am, I mean, pale and NO cheekbones? Of course I need bronzer in my life, even if we’re talking minimum amounts here! 😉

    Love this BB one, despite it being shimmery, great tone, not too warm (which I think can be the tricky part for us pale faces, lol)! 🙂 Enjoy your glow hun! 😉
