Justin Timberlake may have brought sexy back, but one Ms Kardashian has almost single-handedly brought bronzing back. A few years ago bronzing powders and contouring tools were kept firmly in the summer makeup kit, helping to complement a natural sunkissed glow or warm the skin’s tone; however, in 2015 contouring and bronzing products are as much a part of our makeup routines as a black eyeliner. I don’t think anything of adding a touch of bronzer to my pale complexion on a daily basis, helping to warm my otherwise English Rose tone and allow me to push the boundaries of the colours I apply. Although I have many different products that I call upon, most are too dark to be used outside of the summer months – but Clarins have come to the rescue with this beautifully designed palette that includes four varying tones to ensure a natural glow, whatever your skin tone or the time of year.
Inspired by marine life, the palette is embossed with lots of little sea creatures and designs that reflect the magical qualities of the sea. The only problem with creating such a beautifully intricate product is that it’s almost too pretty to use – almost. Thanks to the four different tones within the palette you can create depth and warmth, or simply opt for a singular colour that you buff gently into cheekbones; the compact is really quite large, making it really easy to swirl a large fluffy brush around the base and apply with ease. If you’re a little scared of bronzing, contouring or adding a sunkissed glow to your look, this is a great introductory product that will see you through at least a couple of summers… Or if you’re brave enough to integrate it into your daily routine, all year long! At £30.00 it’s a wise investment without leaving you weeping at the till point.
