Goldilocks would love this: FACE atelier Ultra Bronzer

The winter months fly by and my skin just keeps getting lighter and lighter, paler and paler…so I am now reaching for bronzer to save me from looking sallow. Pale is great, but sallow is not. It’s amazing how a little bronzer in the right places perks my complexion right up and gives me an incredibly healthy glow. Lately I am loving the FACE atelier Ultra Bronzer ($36) for several reasons.

FACE atelier Ultra Bronzer in Malibu

First, it’s super easy to use. I find some bronzers have a pigment problem – too little so it seems like they don’t do much; or too much so they end up looking frightening on me. Or, they just make my skin look dirty because they don’t buff out smoothly. The Ultra Bronzer is like Baby Bear’s bed in Goldilocks – just right! The perfect amount of pigment and it buffs in beautifully every time.

Second, this bronzer is really different – it has silicone in the formula, so it isn’t dry. This means the bronzer doesn’t settle into pores, it actually floats on top of skin. As I get older, these little strokes of genius become very important. Color that settles into pores emphasizes fine lines and wrinkles and ages me by years. I put this gorgeous bronzer on my cheeks, chin, and at my temples and I actually look younger and healthier.

Third, it also works as a contour. I’m having a real battle with my neck these days.  I don’t like the fact that my neck is drooping under my chin. Makes me want to wear a turtleneck up to my nose, you know??

So I sweep my Ultra Bronzer under my cheekbones for definition there and then under my chin as a wonderful lighting/contour trick that instantly recedes that drooping neckline. It works for now while I save up for that platysmaplasty (that’s a neck lift, y’all. Just don’t tell my husband.)

Overall, the FACE atelier Ultra Bronzer is a beautiful, silky bronzer with an elegant, sophisticated formula that has me wanting all four shades available: brushed sable, malibu, brazilian blaze, and brushed sable. FACE atelier is sold at QVC and FACE atelier’s website.  – Lisa
