estee lauder bronze goddess soft matte bronzer

I remember the days when my older sister would sit out in the sun, applying a combination of baby oil and iodine drops to get the perfect tan.

She would also use one of those big reflectors held under her chin, to direct the sun to her face.


How she's not as wrinkled and leathery as an old worn out chair is anybody's guess.

Now-a-days, the best choice for the perfect tan is bronzer.

I'm loving this matte bronzer from Estee Lauder.

First of's a ginormous compact. Seriously, it's huge.

Plus it comes with a soft brush to apply it with.

Who doesn't love extras?

Just take the brush and apply the bronzer to the parts of your face, where the sun would naturally hit. You can also apply it to your shoulders and chest as well. Use a light hand, because you can always add more.

Because it's matte, it gives your skin a believable sun kissed look that's great for daytime.

Want to really kick it up a notch?

Apply their Tender Blush in Rose Nuance ($25) to the apples of your cheeks, for a gorgeous pop of color.

Finish off with some gloss and mascara...and you're stopping traffic honey.

I've been on the hunt for the perfect bronzer for AGES. Mostly to contour, though. I haven't found one dark enough to show up on me! *tear*

Hey Sarah:
Not sure how much you are willing to spend, but have you tried Bobbi Brown or Nars? Bobbi Brown has 5 colors in her range of bronzers. The two darkest are dark and deep. Nars makes a pretty one called casino that's darker than laguna, I have heard of some women with darker complexions using that one. Also, Iman cosmetics has some bronzers specifically for darker skin tones.

Hope this helps.
