During my bronzer search which seemed to have been my make up obsession of the summer, one of the bronzer's I purchased was the Guerlain Terrecotta Light Bronzer in 02 Brunette
Gorgeous packaging with the famous Guerlain Mosaic Design
This bronzer gave me issues. Not due to the fact that it was a bad product, I just didn't know how to use it.
The color was more of a peachy brown, and it had shimmers. Also the pigmentation was pretty light. This seemed more like an "Almost Bronzer"This is not something I would contour with - which is a big reason why I buy bronzers.
This bronzer is best used to give your face an all over color. Best applied with a MAC 150 ( in my humble opinion) Get a big brush and whack it on all over.
Because the shade is a peachy brown, whenever I was feeling lazy (often in the summer) I would apply this over my temples, jawline, and below the hollows of my cheeks, but also on my cheeks, across my nose, chin, and a bit on the eyes. Sounds like too much? Nope!
If the color is not super pigmented, and it has a tinge of either peach or pink, wearing it all over gives you a warm collective breathe of color which is evenly distributed on the face.
I became quite obsessed with these bronzers with a bit of color in them to skip the blush step, and make contouring look obvious.
