Recently I have been consuming the trails of the Kim Kardashian clan quite fiercely. Having read and heard so much of their antics and not to forget the head turning style (some good, some bad) of Kim herself, I decided to immerse myself in the numerous seasons of ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’ as well as their respective spin-offs. Apart from the usual dose of drama, what helped me push through the hours, I started looking more closely at some of the high fashion moments that dictated the show. While some of the clothes were totally outrageous, I was quiet impressed by the perfectly contoured face of Kim which led me to search for the perfect highlighter and bronzer. I have been following posts and reading on the art of contouring like a pro, so all that remains now is to find that one perfect product which would suit my skin type and tone to a T.
Unlike those dusky beauties who can get away with a light god tones bronzer, my pale skin appears to need the entire box so as to appear slightly more chiseled.
1. Limited Edition Bronzer from Marks and Spencer
I have tried various bronzers from the brands available in India, out of which, the limited edition Bronzer from Marks and Spencer struck a cord with me and I have been using this ever since.
The powder is dark brownish in colour and is very matte. Also it doesn’t have a lot of sparkle which I love. You can buy it here. Its also available in select stores across the country.
2. The Two Faced Beach Bunny Bronzer
This is one of my recent purchases and I can’t wait to try it soon. I love the color palette which is a combination of four rich, sun-kissed shades which is great for contouring and highlighting. I chose this specially because it can also be used as a highlighter. Stay tuned for the review coming soon.
Isn’t the cover ultra cutee?? You can buy it here.
3. Anastasia Beverly Hills- Pro series contour kit
An absolute must-have and I am lusting over this. A tad on the expensive side but this is on my wishlist. The six shades are apt for contouring and sculpting the face like a pro.
You can buy this here.
4. Stila Convertible Color Bronzing Duo
The product looks good enough to eat. It’s both a cheek and a lip stain and doubles up as a bronzer. Very convenient when you have a tiny clutch and need to pick the essentials. It has two glowing colors of gold and warm bronze which gives your face a sun-kissed sparkle.
You can buy it here
5. St. Tropez Skin Illuminator- Gold
This is perfect for darker complexions as is basically more of a highlighter than a bronzer. It will add a subtle shimmer and radiance to your skin.

Also don’t forget to use a good brush to get that perfect contour and blend on the skin. It’s essential to remember that for highlighting, a light bronzer works but for contouring, its better to get a medium to darker shade so as to sculpt those gorgeous cheekbones perfectly.
Do you have any other product you simply dig and should be added to the list? Please feel free to let us know 😀
