Too Faced Chocolate Bronzers

I’m in shorts right now! So let’s chat about bronzers!


I recently created a look inspired by Diane Von Furstenberg’s Spring-Summer 2016 makeup because I wanted to challenge myself to finally use some colorful eyeshadow. And…I loved it! I can’t wait to experiment with more colors now, and I would love your suggestions for eyeshadow looks!

Anyways, besides the bright color on the lids, the focus of my look was all on the tanned skin. I used two different bronzers to get a multi-dimensional effect. I grabbed the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Bronzer in 02 Medium ($37 for .74oz!!!) and dusted this all over the perimeter of my face and the tops of my cheeks. This is my favorite bronzer, and I use it all-year! It’s not completely matte, so it blends into skin perfectly.

Finally, I finished with the Too Faced Bronzer in Chocolate Soleil ($30 for .35oz) right in the hollows of my cheeks.

As you can see from the swatches, Bronze Goddess is reddish in tone compared to the neutral/brown Too Faced bronzers. I love both of them equally but for different purposes.

    Too Faced Chocolate Soleil is my all time favorite product for contouring. Love that it’s completely matte and non-orangey. It can also work as a bronzer as well because it’s not too cool toned. =)

    There you go with those amazing eyeshadows again 😉 I am working on a look that incorporates green, blue, red-orange and yellow so this is excellent timing! I haven’t used Chocolate Soleil in awhile – I have WAY too many bronzers – but certainly need to pull it out again 🙂

    Love your eye look! It’s colorful and subtle all at the same time, so pretty 🙂

  4. Kwmechelle says:

    Love the eye look. You wear colorful eyeshadow well. My go to fave bronzer of all time is by Guerlain. It’s one of their Terra Cota bronzers & I wear it so much until I maybe getting ready to hit pan 😱

    • Anna Oh says:

      Gasp, I know the one. It’s always been in my Sephora cart but I just haven’t been able to commit because my Estee Lauder and Too Faced have been serving me well enough. One of these days…

  5. India says:

    I bought one of the too face chocolate bronzers in too dark a color and I used it as an eyeshadow, you should totally try it, it blends so so well

    Wow, you look stunning! I’m on a no-buy but as soon as I finish it (or break it, siiigghh) I am going to check out those Estee Lauder bronzers!

    • Anna Oh says:

      They come out with this Bronze Goddess EVERY summer in an amazing tortoise packaging. I also have a lot of nostalgia for Estee Lauder because it was the only thing my mother used, but I think Estee Lauder is often overlooked in the makeup realm.

  7. Amanda says:

    That turquoise really brings out the depth of your brown eyes. I’ve always envied brown-eyed girls 🙂

  8. Rachel R. says:

    I always loved blue-grays on brown eyes. I think this look is beautiful on you.

    I was very clever to use a slightly darker and matte bronzer in the hollows of the cheek for more dimension. *taking note*

    I’m really fair-skinned,so bronzers are a PITA for me. Milk Chocolate Soleil is by far the best I’ve tried. I was glad to see it shown here.

    • Anna Oh says:

      I die, thank you!

      I have never ventured into cool contours and I’ve loved the effect of layering bronzers for the time being…they really do look quite different on the skin!

      I would also even try using a powder foundations a LITTLE darker than your skin too, if you are very pale!

      • Rachel R. says:

        The powder foundation idea is genius! I actually have some that I occasionally use as an eyeshadow base since I couldn’t return it. I’ll have to play with it now. Thanks for the tip.

    Very beautiful makeup look! I have never tried the famed Bronze Goddess bronzer but it looks like it might be a good match for me because bronzers with red undertones work well with my skintone. I do love the TF Chocolate bronzers, I have the bronzer wardrobe which is a little ~extra~ but hey, a bronzer for every season is a must, right? 🙂

    • Anna Oh says:

      If you love a great red-toned bronzer, you may love Bronze Goddess all over because it’s not mega matte. It feels like this bronzer has been around since I was a kid so I love that I am still using it as an adult 🙂 There can never be enough bronzer, NOPE!

  12. Erin says:

    The only bronzers I tend to like are Guerlain. I did just see that TF Terra is pretty cool toned. Sometimes I’ll use Chanel Les Beiges in 30 as a bronzer. I also have BB’s 01 bronzer which is ok. It’s a bit warm for me so I use it more like a blush unless it’s the height of summer. Being cooler toned it’s rought to find a bronzer that doesn’t look muddy on me.

    • Anna Oh says:

      I’ve had my eye on the Guerlain and Bobbi Brown (in Medium) bronzers as well…I haven’t been able to commit yet though!

      I also use NARS Blush in “Madly” for a blush if I don’t have time for bronzer/contour. You should check it out because it’s like a tea rose color that also helps define my cheekbones.

  13. Sakura says:

    I love this look that you created. You’re eye shadow is amazing. And overall, It doesn’t look like you have that many products on.

    BTW, I love Too Faced bronzers! I like that Jerrod created so many bronzers because he wanted women to get a glow safely. (His sister and avid tanner had had Melanoma.)

    I love your eye look. How did you do it? Hope you could post a tutorial.
    Thanks in advance
