If you are looking for that sun-kissed glow without getting on a plane, then get yourself a box of W7 Cosmetic‘s Honolulu bronzer, £5.95. It has a flattering, warming effect on the face and gives just the same radiant look as other big name brands.
Cute packaging gives a tropical feel to the bronzer, and, the pink-tipped brush also gives a lovely sweep of the product onto the cheekbones. I’ve been applying it to cheeks and parts of the face – brow bone, bridge of nose – that the sun would naturally hit. No matter how pale and tired you are looking, this gives a slice of sunshine to the skin.
Another gem from the same brand – which offers versatile products at affordable prices – is the uber-cute Casino compact, £7.95.
Containing a blush, highlight and contour in one, it will become your new ‘must-have’ for a chiselled look.
The blush gives a lovely pink to the apples of your cheeks, I use it after a sweep of the Honolulu bronzer, to add a touch of definition. You can blend the two peachy colours to lift and sculpt, according to what shade you are after, and then highlight with the lightest shade, for a glam finishing touch.
