Confession time. I’m not a fan of bronzer or bronzing or looking tanned. I embrace the pale princess look which might stem from the fact that its my natural colouring and I was born with it so its the only colouring I’ve ever known 🙂 I don’t keep a tan easily either. During school days, not being much of an athlete, for Sports Day, I was always in the march past where we’d train under the the noonday sun. Mom always made me slather on sunscreen so the smell of Coppertone always makes me think of school. (And people wonder why I dislike using Coppertone!)
At the end of Sports Day, everyone would be sunburnt. I’d be lightly toasted and within 2 weeks I’d go back to normal. I think everyone hated me for that 😛 Which long winded story explains why I don’t quite do bronzers as a makeup thing, and brings me to the Diorskin Nude Tan Healthy Glow Skin Enhancing powder aka bronzer by Dior for Summer 2012. There are 4 shades available : 001 Aurora, 002 Sunlight, 003 Zenith and 004 Sunset for most skintones. Being placed at the lighter end of the spectrum today I’ll show you 001 Aurora which is only the 2nd bronzer I’ve ever owned!
