Fair Skin Friday: Bronzers

I didn’t choose the pale life. The pale life chose me. Finding a shade match for my pale skin has been an issue my ENTIRE life. There are so many products that I can’t try out or use because the lightest shade is about 2 shades too dark for me.

Y’all know I’m avid YouTube watcher and I spend a lot of time in Ulta and looking up makeup online so I’ve found some products that work well for me.

I didn’t start wearing bronzer till about 3 or 4 years ago. I could never find one that worked for me. It was either too orange, too red, or just too dark. I didn’t know what I was missing out on. Bronzer adds some warmth and definition to the face.
