I’m a ghostly shade of pale (bullies in school used to call me casper, no joke) so I find it dreadfully hard to find bronzers that don’t make me look like I’ve been tangoed or smeared dirt up my cheeks.
I tend to have a couple of bronzers I use when I want a more defined, summer look and don’t really venture out much apart from those, that was until I got Hoola-ed!
Hoola is probably one of Benefit’s most popular products – a universal shade of bronzer packaged neatly into a box with a little brush. The new boxes contain and mirror as well for on the go touch ups. I’ve always been a Hoola virgin but since getting it I’ve been using it almost daily.
Benefit very kindly sent me my very own personalised Hoola Bronzer along with their Ultra Plush Hoola Lipgloss which I’ve also been loving.
Pale gals are probably wondering if I have any tips on how to make the bronzer work? I like to use my Real Techniques Blusher Brush to start subtly and build up the colour (it’s easier to add than take away, right!) starting on my cheeks and building it up onto my temples. Add product and blend, blend blend.
If you are left with any harsh lines or marks, simply grab your foundation brush and buff some leftover foundation into the skin on the lines to even out the look.
This has become the perfect little addition to my summer makeup bag! It’s available from all Benefit counters and online for £23.50. The ligploss is also very pretty adding a natural brownish hint to my lips (I’m wearing it in the photographs above). This retails for £14.50.
