When I was first learning makeup 7 years ago, I came across this product Talk To The Tan which is now discontinued and has been so for many years. I discovered this product whilst working at Benefit Cosmetics 5 years ago! What me and the dark girls used to do is rub it on our face on top of our foundation to achieve this bronzed glow look which I then continued to do each year it hit summer! So that amazing product is permanently off the market I searched for an alternative. There are many on the market however I find this particular one to leave the most radiant, flawless and natural like bronze, not just on my skin, but even on white or fair skin. The product can be washed off easily or a cosmetic wipe removes it efficiently as if you are wiping off ordinary makeup.
To help the finish, add an orange toned blush, gold shimmer highlight and MAC Fix Plus Spray
Give this a try and let me know what you think! For easier application, mix in with your foundation!
