The post title should really be changed to I discovered the prefect application method via the lovely and ever so useful Youtube.
Like many I coveted and purchased the famous Soleil Tan de Chanel and was a bit stumped when it came to application. After trying the MAC 168, 130, 187, 188, Sigma brushes, kabuki brushes, and Sephora brand brushes later, I finally put my hand up in the air when across a video where a girl applied it with her hands.
Chanel's acclaimed bronzer found a near permanent home in my drawer of products I just could not make work.
The problem was, it was orange. Like really mucky orange, and no matter how much I blended unless some hint of a tan was there, I just saw orange. I actually do not mind orangey bronzers in the summer, but in the winter, pass.
I then came across a video where the method was a bit strange but made sense. A dab of moisturizer and a swirl of the stippling brush to not only gives this bronzer less of a matte flat finish, but more of sheer shade down version of the cream bronzer so I tried it, and I LOVE it.
I swirl my brush around the product a few times, not pressing hard and my brush at first looked so dark and wet...I applied it to my face anyway and it felt like magic happened!
Gorgeous glow, sheered out color, and an incredibly natural effect.
Reject drawer no more! Front runner in the house! Which is quite fabulous news, because since when does Chanel take a back seat ;)
Hopefully a few of you out there who shared a similar problem can try this technique out!
