I am pretty fair and have a really difficult time finding bronzers or contours that go well with my skin tone and look natural on me. My favorite contour isn’t even a contour powder, it’s Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light by Hourglass! For my completion, I usually favor a “my face by better” look and that is why I love to contour with Dim Light. You would have to be pretty fair for this trick to work for you since Dim Light is the darkest Ambient Lighting Powder. But if you have similar skin tone to me, it can accentuate cheek bones or reshape the nose so subtlety and naturally. I learned this trick from Mary Greenwell as she went through her pro gab on YouTube.
Hourglass – Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light
Glossier – Boy Brow in Black
Too Face – Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation in Snow
🍃The highlight is very pretty, smooth, and subtle cool pink.
🍃The blushes are satin matte, easy to blend, not very pigmented, but buildable.
🍃The bronzer is very cool toned and satin matte
🍃The palette come in one shade that is best suited for fair/light skins
The E.L.F – Beautifully Bare Natural Glow Face Palette palette is good enough that I am going to keep using it because I can create a nice, effortless look – it even works well for quick eye makeup. I will probably stick to just the blushes and highlight because I don’t like the bronzer. The blushes aren’t really my cup of tea either – they are too matte for me – but I have found that mixing in a touch of the highlight solves that problem. The best part of the palette is the highlight, it is absolutely beautiful if you are into a subtle, lit-from-with look. I don’t like the bronzer because it’s very cool and definitely is more of a contour shade, plus it just seems a little ruddy/dirty on my face.
I think that given the price (I bought mine for $8.00 at Ulta) and the convenience and the highlight, I think it’s worth buying if you are interested in it, but you definitely won’t be missing out on anything if you pass.
