The (albeit fleeting) appearance of the summer sun this week caught me completely off guard and with a face sporting a whiter shade of white than Casper the Ghosts - and no time to fake tan - I decided to attempt a sun kissed look with just makeup. Enter stage right two fantastic new bronzing offerings from Borjouis, add a subtle shimmering sensation from Protocol and voila a natural, bronzed look.
I squeezed a small amount of the Jouer Matte Moisture Tint (£29 - review here) onto my hand followed by a small amount of Bourjois Delice BB Cream (*£9.99) and mixed the two together to form a slightly darker foundation which I then applied with a brush. After blending I decide to use the Borjouis Delice BB Cream as a contour and dotted the product along my temples, cheekbones and jawline and used a buffing brush to blend/buff the product into my skin. The Bobbi Brown Blush Brush (£35) was used to sweep the Bourjois Delice Maxi Bronzing Powder (*£8.99) over the same areas (temples, cheekbone, jawline) and a sheer dusting of the Proto-col baked mineral shimmer (*£27.95 - shade apricot swirl) was applied to my apples and blended out up towards my cheekbones. My trusty Maybelline Fit Me Pressed Powder (£5.99 shade 125) was used to set the look.
I applied a mixture of the Proto-col baked shimmer and the Borjouis Delice Maxi Bronzing Powder over my eyelids and blended outwards for a softer finish and finally, finished the look with a slick of Mac Hue.
