Stila One Step Bronze - It's a wonder product

I may have mentioned before that I love to look a little bronzed during the summer although "little" is the operative word and would hate to ever go overboard and end up like an Oompa Loompa. I think a "little" bronze/tan makes everybody look good.  My favourite way to achieve this is with Stila One Step Bronze.  It's a magic little bottle of goodness that is a primer, an illuminator and of course a bronzer.  
Hold the Phone... a primer.. why would a bronzer need a primer? Well, that's one of the things that make this a wonderfully innovative and versatile product.  You can use One Step Bronze on its own as a slight flush of colour to brighten your skin, perfect for those with good skin or a run to the shops or maybe to the gym (no sniggering about me mentioning a gym), it's light and natural looking. 

You can also use One Step Bronze underneath foundation (that is why the primer is so clever), or mix it with your foundation. Think of all the foundations that are a shade too light when it gets to summer, simply mix in a small amount of One Step Bronze and your foundation has been instantly warmed up.  Let's not forget that you can use this more traditionally over your foundation to add a glow.

One step Bronze (as well as One Step Foundation - which FYI I really really like) contains Stila's Youth Revival Bio-Available Mineral Complex that claims to:
Reduce imperfections
Improve skin texture
Diminish the look of fine lines & wrinkles
Minimize pores
Hydrate, balance and nourish the skin
Control oil production

The product is nourishing but not heavy so if you're wearing it on its own your skin looks clear and healthy without feeling greasy. What is lovely about this product is because it has a liquid consistency it blends really well into the skin and doesn't sit on top. The result is natural glowing skin - Yes Please. One Step Bronze is not only a very clever product, it's also a no fuss product.  You can blend the product in with your fingers - no need for brushes- simple.

One Step Bronze has an innovative triple helix of products (I am a sucker for anything that looks sciencey) as well as working it looks deadly.

The tripe helix includes:
Matte bronze with copper undertone - to bronze
Bronze with pink undertone - to enhance skintone and illuminate
Kitten - to brighten, illuminate and help diminish the appearance of sun spots
(The primer is the clear product)

You can still see a swirl of colours when you pump the product, you don't need a lot (a little goes a long way).  I like to mix on the back of my hand and then apply.

The effect is so natural - the product melts into the skin creating healthy looking, glowing skin. 

Probably due to the fact that its a no fuss product with added skin benefits and a healthy glow that doesn't make you look like a disco ball you can use this product on men.  YES MEN. If you're doubtful about this how do you think Mr. David Beckham gets his glow?  That's right Stila One Step Glow- David uses it on his photoshoots. Victoria (or Vicky B as I like to call her) is a huge fan of Stila (nearly as big as me) she uses a lot of their products and even has the pleasure of having Sarah Lucero Stila's Pro Artist as her Makeup Artist (lucky thing). No wonder she always looks perfectly groomed (she has been loving Stila's new Stay all day 10 in 1 HD Beauty Balm -click here)

So let's sum this up, the product makes you look gorgeous and naturally tanned, is a primer, illuminates AND has anti ageing properties.  This multi functioning product costs £24.00. What are you waiting for, go check it out (here).  If powder bronze is more your thing you have to check out Stila's Summer Collection, they have the most stunning and perfectly toned bronzer I have ever seen - this is going to be a must have for everybody (check it out here).  The Summer Collection has just launched (right now)  http://www.stila.co.uk/ sign up (here) to their newsletter to receive details.
