Much like the former don’t-wear-white-after-Labour-Day decree, applying bronzing powder is now no longer restricted to the summertime. Amen. And while we’re not 100-percent certain who to thank for the fashionable change in rule, we’re grateful none the less. So it should come as no surprise that Guerlain’s Terracotta Light Sheer Bronzing Powder has quickly become a staple in our year-round beauty routine. The brand’s French experts attribute our love affair to the product’s ingenious mosaic of five shades of compact powder, complete with a complexion highlighter that creates a natural-looking glow. True, but the real reason for our loyalty is because of the quality of the colour: it neither goes on too orange nor too muddy. It can be worn on our cheeks with a pop of blush for extra warmth, on our eyelids for a golden glow and all over our face for sun-kissed perfection.
