Glow

I’ve always preferred naturally pale skin to (obvious) fake tans all year round. This year, however, the sun has apparently decided to skip the country of Netherlands, which means I’m still as pale as I was back in february and I must say that I miss that elusive sun-kissed glow that usually happens in the summer and which I have apparently taken for granted all these years.

Thanks to Into The Gloss, I have recently discovered the joy of bronzing, contouring and highlighting (it sounds like a lot of work but it basically comes down to a couple of quick swoops with the brush). I’m still a bit squeemish about using it too much, but I love the way it looks when used correctly. My current favourite compact is Givenchy’s Le Prismissime. I use it over my moisturizer and that way it’s subtle enough to look natural (but better).
