While I’m willing to give up some things in the interest of streamlining — spare toothbrushes (do you really need more than one of them?), clothes that no longer fit me and that fourth half-empty jar of Tiger Balm — I refuse to relinquish any all-important necessities like shoes, handbags, earrings, jeans, lipsticks and, in the summer months, bronzer because, I mean, you just never know, right?
You just never know…
You just never know when a freak cold front will blow through town in the middle of August (well…), and you’ll want to warm up with MAC’s Nude on Board Pro Longwear Bronzing Powder.
It’s perfect for times when I need a little extra warmth and contouring — but less than full-on “tiara and feather boa” levels.
A golden tan powder, Nude on Board leaves my skin lightly toasted, and like MAC’s Refined Golden Bronzer (from the same Temperature Rising collection), its micro-fine flecks of golden glitter, much finer than grains of sand, give skin that extra something-something.
It’s a subtle effect, but I think that’s the beauty of it.
To apply, first find a fainting couch… Then, leisurely lower yourself down onto it, and languidly apply the satiny smooth powder just below your cheekbones.
It won’t take much muscle at all, as the application is darned-near effortless.
Yeah, it brings out yo’ lazy like that!
And it lasts. I can leave the house to run errands without having to touch it up before I get home.
If you’re around NC42 or lighter and like golden bronzers (versus redder ones like MAC Sun Dipped), take a gander at Nude on Board. I think it’s the Temperature Rising Bronzer you might want.
AVAILABILITY: Available now online and at MAC counters and stores
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: A
G’morning and happy Thursday!
I’m on a quest to satisfy my special deep pockets dental requirements for the next week (no sticky or crunchy foods, blah!).
It’s a little too warm for soup right now, so I’m thinking smoothies, perhaps of the spinach variety, and lots of pasta, fruit and steamed veggies. If I come up with anything interesting (translation: really easy and not totally gross), I’ll let you know.
I’m barely a day in, and I’m already craving popcorn, caramel and potato chips like crazy, le sigh.
Have a good day today, okay?
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
