When you are choosing a Bronzer for your big Day, I would recommend going for a matte shade, this will allow you to not only contour your face making the shape more defined for pictures but also for adding colour. I like to use a cream bronzer under my foundation & then add a little powder bronzer to add extra shape to my face especially under my cheek bones & chin! It doesn't matter what budget you have there are some great products out there, here are a few of my favourites.
The velvety finish of this light cream-gel bronzer leaves your skin with a beautiful sun-kissed look. Wear it on its own to enhance your complexion, or for a hint of outdoors radiance, over or under your Foundation. A great cream bronzer, you need to use a light hand & slowly build the colour as this can look a little orange if your not careful.£31.00 for 30ml
