Sun in Winter

Living in England, the cold months seem to last forever. For a couple of weeks it’s fun to think about snow and wrapping up in scarfs with just a natural blush to the cheeks. But come the new year I’m aching for warmth and having that summery glow.

Bronzer is something I’ve always had trouble with. I’ve only used it properly in the last year as I found the ones I bought to be the wrong shade – that kind of brick-red that doesn’t look natural with my fair complexion. I’ve tried cushion and stick bronzers but they never last on me. I think I’m too low maintenance to bother with primers and setting sprays – I’m not convinced they do anything from the ones I’ve tried. I did really like the L’Oreal Cushion De Soleil Bronzer but it ran out so quickly and needed constant touching up.

Ideally the perfect powder bronzer for me would be affordable, not tested on animals, as natural and organic as possible – not containing a lot of harsh chemicals and of course that it works. Having great packaging would be a plus. Colour-wise, a muted cool brown with little shimmer.
