I have a full blown fall-out with fall each year because my brown skin tends to lose a bit of its richness during its cool arrival. When my brown skin tone fluctuates in its color range, matching a foundation is a difficult task.
Instead of buying a new makeup palette for each season, I have opted to use a bronzer to keep my skin's appearance even in color. Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder in bronze gives me a sun-kissed look sans the beach and I get to keep my sanity in check by skipping the makeup metamorphosis each season.
Here's the claim for Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder:
Like the original, this micronized clay finishing powder mattifies skin, minimizes the appearance of pores and replenishes all skin types, now while adding a natural touch of bronze to your complexion.
This silky smooth finishing powder glides on evenly and imparts a healthy, natural warmth while the intuitive and skin smart Amazonian clay, nature's most perfect ingredient, acts as a total skin balancer by reducing dryness and flakiness, improving clarity and texture, and removing surface oil to mattify skin for a soft and flawless lit-from-within finish; all while replenishing and rehydrating skin.
Since fall ushers in a few dry patches of skin too, I use a dense moisturizer to prep my dehydrated skin. Then sunscreen (yes, year round) and a few dabs of foundation on dark spots and dark eyes are next before gently fanning the velvety Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder in bronze across my face.
Because I am relying on the bronze finishing powder to be the ultimate makeup of choice, I brush lightly in stages. The powder is lightweight, easy to apply, and doesn’t require the same control needed when using a pressed powder. After two brief swipes, I’m a bit browner without looking unnatural or over baked.
Pros: Natural, sun-kissed look in mere minutes.
