Most bronzers really don’t rock at all, for me. They make me look either orange or dirty, and sometimes both. This is the exception. It’s by NARS and it’s called Laguna, though obviously that might not be the right shade for you – I’m brown in the first place. Paler shades are available. But my God, it’s good. It makes you look sprightly and healthy and like you’ve had lunch at the beach in the South of France, and caught the sun just so, and now you’re ready to go for an apéritif and sit outside the church, at the bar in the square, looking golden, oh c’est gentil Monsieur, perhaps just a kir, etc etc.

Doubles up as a pretty excellent blusher, though speaking of NARS and blushers, these new ones here are absolutely amazing, especially if you put them on wet, when they go on like a wash of colour, giving a sort of lit-from-within, my-skin-does-this-naturally effect.
