Today is our Chocolate colour board day and who doesn’t love chocolate?
As a human of the paler variety (oh SO pale… sigh) I love bronzer. Just a little goes a long way! I like to use it to contour on a lazy day when I don’t do the whole contouring shebang. I use it lightly around the edges of my forehead, along my chin, a little in my neck, and under my cheekbones.
A little background on Chocolate from Wiki…
The word “chocolate” entered the English language from Spanish. How the word came into Spanish is less certain, and there are competing explanations. Perhaps the most cited explanation is that “chocolate” comes from Nahuatl, the language of the Aztecs, from the word chocolātl, which many sources say derived from xocolātl [ʃokolaːtɬ], combining xococ, sour or bitter, and ātl, water or drink. The word “chocolatl” does not occur in central Mexican colonial sources, making this an unlikely derivation. Another derivation comes from the Yucatec Mayan word chokol meaning hot, and the Nahuatl atl meaning water. The Nahuatl term, chicolatl, meaning “beaten drink”, may derive from the word for the frothing stick, chicoli. – Wikipedia
And here are some ‘Chocolate’ tips for bronzing:
- Picking the right shade is vital… this is where it could all go wrong. Two shades darker than your natural skin tone should do the trick.
- If you want a healthy but subtle glow just add a luminizer in a more golden shade to your foundation.
- Apply in the right places, cheeks, eyes, lips, use it to contour, but don’t over do it!
- A subtle shimmer bronzer on your cheekbones can accentuate any look.
- Use a bronzer brush, it’s a necessity.
