Tried & tested: Bronzing Powders


Faux Tan All-Over Face Colour, $79

This face colour gives the impression you have just been 
on an island holiday – without the damaging effects of the sun. Perfect as 
a cheek highlighter or for an all-over glow, this bronzer is easy to apply. Be sure to tap 
any excess off the brush first. With this product, less is definitely more.


Moonglow, $89

This quad-compact of golden bronze and copper-toned shades can be used on eyes and cheeks or as an all-over highlighter. The mineral powder (free of FD&C dyes and irritants) contains 24-carat gold flakes, giving skin a soft, golden shimmer that instantly brightens the complexion. For evening or special occasions, brush on your décolletage and shoulders as well your face.


Soleil Tan De Chanel, $79

For a natural, golden complexion, this velvety powder does not disappoint. Enriched with moisturising active ingredients, it glides on easily without caking or settling into fine lines. The brush is designed to be used for the whole face and décolletage, or for highlighting.


Minérale, $75

With SPF15, this pressed bronzer protects skin as well as giving it a lovely glow. The matte powder is light in weight and can be applied in layers to give the impression of tanned skin. The Kabuki brush ($80), which is sold separately, is incredibly soft and allows for an easy and even application. Being talc-free, oil-free, non-acnegenic and fragrance-free, this bronzer is great for all skin types.


Bronze Goddess 
Soft Shimmer 
Bronzer, $70

Perfect for the days when your skin is looking dull or sallow, this silky, streak-free powder gives skin a healthy, sun-kissed radiance and enhances skin tone. If you prefer a more understated bronzed finish (and less shimmer) try the Soft Matte Bronzer.


Cellular Treatment Bronzing 
Powder, $95

On first inspection, you would expect the colour of this bronzer to be very dark. However, it goes on the skin very lightly, which means that you can control the application and gradually build up the colour until you reach your desired shade. The silky texture glides on evenly and gives skin a radiant glow due to light-reflecting particles.
