I have a very big obsession with bronzers, it took me a while to learn how to avoid the oompa loompa look but when I finally learnt how to use them, it really made a big difference! I personally prefer having a nice glow over my foundation and powder, I can be quite particular with my face make-up so I wanted to go over the two bronzers I use for day use and for the evening. I have only recently started to like bronzers with shimmer, this Beauty UK bronzer is part of the Baked range and the shade is no 4. Goddess. I really love this shade, I know shimmery bronzer is a marmite topic but this really does look beautiful on your skin. Not only does it work as a body and face bronzer, but it also highlights the skin too. It is incredibly pigmented so you don't need to use a large amount, I can totally see how this bronzer might be confusing, it looks like a highlighter, it's incredibly shimmery but you are supposed to put it on your face?! The way I recommend using this bronzer is for a night out, it is lovely and sparkly and definitely suits a big night out or event.

I would apply this to your chest, forehead and cheekbones to create a gorgeous, sun kissed bronzed effect. If you feel slightly intimated by the amount of shimmer, I would definitely practice before hand. It really is not as scary as it seems and you will love how gorgeous the shade looks on your skin! It is only £3.99 and you can buy it from Superdrug here 8.5/10 My next bronzer is the bronzer I use every day, the MAC bronzer in Refined Golden. MAC really are the Queens of bronzers, the packaging is sophisticated and classy and the texture of their bronzers are always high quality. I use this pretty much all the time and what I love about this MAC bronzer is you really do have control of how it looks on your skin. It is incredibly soft and smooth and you do need to apply a few times to get the desired tone you want. This bronzer is definitely a good way to avoid looking like a wotsit because you can really control where you want the bronzer and how dark you want it. Although it is slightly on the pricey side for £20,  you can buy it online here 9/10

  1. I think I'll have to give that Superdrug one a try for that price. It does look very shimmery, but I like a good makeup experiment.
