Hello My Friends,
You know me, I am not just a fashion blogger, but I am a beauty blogger too and I am obsessed with make-up. Honestly, beauty products are like Pringles: once you start, you can’t stop. When I bought my first makeup product, I didn’t expect to fall down a rabbit hole of obsession into the beauty world. I couldn’t help it though. Somewhere in between adorable packaging and bright colours, I got lost and became obsessed with beauty products. When I found Vita Liberata’s Trystal Pressed Self Tanning Bronzer ,I was simply amazed and trust me this product I will use it over and over again. If you want to find out why, please keep reading…
I love to contour and trust me countering is here to stay. There’s just no way around it. But that doesn’t mean it has to look unnatural or take up 10 extra minutes of your time each day. For a subtle look that lasts, you could try tontouring (using self-tanner to carve out your features) or better yet, my new secret weapon:Vita Liberata’s Trystal Pressed Self Tanning Bronzer . You apply it like regular bronzer, and when you rinse it off, it leaves an ever-so-slight glow behind.
Here’s how it works: Just like other mineral powder makeup, the bronzer comes in a handy pressed form that is perfect for travel and on the go bronzing ( win-win for me).
You can apply over moisturizer or liquid foundation by using kabuki or any other bronzer brush that you use onto the face, neck and décolleté in circular movements. Then you put it on all the high points of your face—your forehead, cheekbones, the bridge of your nose—or as mentioned, you can use it to contour and sculpt your features. The powder is oil-free and super-fine, so it goes on smoothly and blends easily. There’s also DHA (the main ingredient in sunless tanners) in the formula to help develop your golden glow.
It stays on throughout the day and when you wash it off, well, that’s where it gets tricky. I didn’t see much of a difference in my skin tone the first time I used it, so I decided the self-tan aspect didn’t work. Luckily, I happened to be too lazy to pick up a new bronzer right away, so I continued to use it daily. That’s when I realized the tan builds with regular use and will last up to 5 days.
It might sound too good to be true, but it works. I wear it during the weekends layered over my sunscreen, and it’s a win-win. To everyone else, it looks like I have a little makeup on, when really, I’m just working on my faux tan. (And, of course, my contour).
