It’s about time I write a review about this beauty. This D&G illuminator was a love at first sight. Even though it was one of my typical impulse buys, months after the purchase I’m still very happy with it.
There aren’t many products on the beauty market created specifically for contouring. There’s plenty of bronzers and blushes that you can get away with for this purpose, but on my very pale skin those don’t work very well most of the time. They either look too warm or too yellow or don’t have a matte finish.
When it comes to bronzers, Guerlain is THE brand to go for. Their Terracotta range has become a synonym for the sun kissed look – it offers a wide range of shades and finishes. As someone with fair, cool-to-neutral toned complexion I opted for the lightest shade of the Terracotta Light Sheer Bronzing Powders – Blondes 02.
The best thing about summer makeup is getting away with using just a few products to create a flawless look. Lately my daily makeup has been very simple as my skin feels and looks better when it’s warmer outside than during the winter. It doesn’t need as much coverage and colour to make it look healthy.
Ambitiously (or foolishly?) I’m starting my first empties post with two zeros in front of “1”, hoping there will be many more to come. Every beauty junkie knows how difficult it is to finish a product, when most of us have way too many of them. Occasionally, however, it does happen. With skincare more often, with makeup quite rare – but still, it happens and makes me feel a bit better about spending tons of money on beauty when I see the evidence of actually using it, not just hoarding it!
Due to high expectations, my relationship with Mood Light started on a rocky patch. I wanted to try the Ambient Lighting powders for ages, I loved the concept and read a bunch of reviews saying it’s great as a setting powder.
