If a genie granted me one wish that would last the rest of my life, what would it be? Well, that’s easy! I’d wish to be granted a year-round tan that never fades. Whether the sunkissed glow of early summer or the deep bronze right before fall begins, there is simply nothing better!
We’ve all heard the phrase “look good, feel good” — and certainly it’s true, which is why I spend 99.9% of my time searching for a new bronzer. You name it, I’ve tried it. The search was endless and impossible until recently. After one too many Google searches and becoming a serial shopper, I stumbled upon this bronzer, which ended up being life-changing, to say the least.
This Benefits Cosmetic Hoola Matte Bronzing Powder was the answer to all my prayers to sport a year-round tan. But this bronzer skips all the potential sunburns and wrinkles associated with tanning and bring outs a healthy summer-like glow in an instant.
When applying this matte bronzing powder directly to your face, it’s best compared to the third or fourth day of a tan. Personally, it hit my face in all the right spots. It made my neck look darker, my cheekbones higher and, best of all, my entire face looked slimmer! It was like the Instagram skinny filter but in real life. Well, that’s not even the best part.
This bronzer was so natural looking, it was difficult to even tell I was even wearing makeup! That’s great in itself but it’s even greater since this is a matte-based product. Everyone knows how difficult a matte can be. Some are too heavy and leave our faces looking cake-like, while others don’t work at all. This was a seamless solution! It was lightweight in its texture and looked incredibly natural.
Honestly, it’s not just me that is obsessed with this product. It’s everyone. From Kyle Richards to Julianne Hough, it’s the A-list approved bronzer and with good reason, too! With four different shades to choose from, it gives just about every skin tone a perfectly fresh sunkissed look!
While this is all great, this bronzer is actually multi-functional. I recently discovered that while this bronzer can highlight our cheekbones and slim our faces, it can also be used as an eyeshadow, too!
When applied directly to the center of our eyelid, it adds just the right amount of color to naturally enhance our already amazing features. Think of it as the tinted lip balm, but for our eyes!
The bronzer comes available in four shades that run the gamut of skin tones, but also makes it easy to transition our individual skin tone through each season!
When I’m paler in the winter, I personally opt for the hoola tone but switch to the caramel medium deep in the summer months. When I’m feeling a bit overly ambitious (shameless!), I use the toasted deep option as a contour or on the eyelids as previously mentioned.
Honestly, I can write an entire book about why this bronzer is my year-round must-have. But instead of me trying to convince everyone why the hype is so real, I’d recommend seeing the magic of this bronzer first-hand. Everyone can Us later for making all of those year-round glow wishes come true.
