Ask me now what my most favorite makeup product is. Without a second's thought I'd answer - Bobbi Brown Illuminating Bronzing Powder

Ask me again.
Still Bobbi Brown Illuminating Bronzing Powder.
Wanna go at it again ? I can do this all day ! So much fun !!

Why , How , What and Should

It costs $33. And its Totally worth it. My friends don't get it when I tell them how much I love it. Well that is why I love you guys. I need you coz only you will understand when I tell you how much joy these 9 gms bring me. I know you will totally get it when I tell you - I have never loved anything this much. You, right there, thank you for nodding your head in agreement. Did I tell you, I love you...

My idea of the shades is like this. If you have light - medium skin tone then go for Maui, Antigua, Barbados tan ( a little on the coral side) or Aruba ( light golden bronze). Maui and Antigua have lots of pink in it. Medium - Deep Skin tones go for Bali Brown or Bahamas or Aruba. A lot of these shades will look great on almost any skin tone so its all about what you prefer whether its pinks or corals or golds or bronze.

Bali Brown Beauty

The shade that I went all weak in the knees for was - Bali Brown. Its a golden bronzer with a hint of terracotta to it. The closest Drugstore version of it has got to be the NYX Terracotta but I like BB better coz its a bit more warmer and lot more bronzer-ish. I'm crazy about it right now ! But, you know me, that isn't going to keep me from finding the next best thing in makeup. So until then, rejoice in the beauty that BB Illuminating Bronzing Powder brings !

Love,
Indian Girl

I'm curious as to why desis need a bronzer unless you are really pale which most of us are not. Wearing blush seems to give enough glow and whenever I see Bollywood stars with bronzer on it always looks way overdone and artificial, it just doesn't look natural to me. So why do we need it if we're tan enough?

Hi Sanjana !

Bronzers come in various types. The matte ones are are mainly used to add deeper tone of color to one's face and is also used for contouring. The bronzers that come with shimmer / golden / bronze bronzers can be used by women of all color to add a healthy glow to their face. For example, Beyonce is pretty tan but using a golden bronzer gives her face a healthy diva glow !

Personally I have pretty pale cheeks and a bronzer brings all the color in my face together. Plus I love the golden glow.
Hope this helps !
