The Best 2 Bronzer's You'll Ever Need!

Oh boy, do I need a tan! I have been relying on bronzers lately to add a bit of colour back in to my skin. I have only started using them in the past twelve months, but I believe I have already found my favourites!

I feel like there's a skill to using to bronzers which I've yet to get the hang of but both Benefit's Hoola and Liz Earle Radiant Glow Bronzer are so simple to use, it easy to achieve the natural, tanned, streak-free look.

Bronzers can be difficult to get right one but to narrow it down, it's easiest to start with which finish you'd prefer. I like matte but I also like Shimmer, so I've got one of each! Hoola* by Benefit is matte finish and the Liz Earle Radiant Glow Bronzer* has a slight shimmer. 

I really couldn't pick whittle is down to my ultimate favourite between the two because they both have different qualities, and I'm going to so much use out of them over the Spring and Summer time!

Hoola is a single tone which comes in one shade and has a matte finish. When I first opened it, I was put off by how dark it looks in the box but if you're not too heavy handed with it, it will pick up just the right amount of powder enough to give your face a lovely, even, sun-kissed look. 

There isn't a bad word to say about this bronzing powder and I can see why it is the number 1 best selling bronzer in the UK. However, the only negative thing I will say about it is that I prefer powders to be in circular packaging so it's a bit annoying that the box is square. It comes with a brush which is a rectangular shape which is great for contouring, but I can't use it properly when I'm applying the powder all over my face, it doesn't go on as evenly as I'd like. But I am really just nitpicking with these two points, it doesn't detract from the fact that this is a great bronzer! I did a full review of Hoola here.

If you prefer something with a bit of shimmer, look no further! Liz Earle have created THE MOST PERFECT BRONZER!

I'm someone who tends to stay away from shimmery powders but the Radiant Glow Bronzer adds a gentle highlighting effect without it being overly sparkly. I've been using this recently, just a couple of sweeps over my face to put some colour back in to it! 

It a silky powder which blends evenly. With four tones, this bronzer is suitable for fair skin because the overall shade is pretty well-balanced. It's a really nice, subtle powder that's also buildable and at £19.50, it's cheaper than Benefit's Hoola too. I highly recommend this to anyone, it is really lovely product! I featured it in a previous blogpost which you can click through to read.

  3. Love the shades on the Liz Earl.That could be a summer winner for me

    I recently bought the real Techniques retractable bronzer brush which I love.. it's big ,lovely and soft and covers really well

  4. I use the Clarin's Bronzing Duo (as well as many others including Hoola) which is worth a try. You can even do some light/natural contouring due to the two sides.

  9. I totally wish that Hoola was circular too, and not cardboard! Would make picking up product a little bit easier!
