Being a very pale person, I am a big fan of bronzer. I get really excited when I discover a foolproof one like this gorgeous Chantecaille Compact Soleil Bronzer. This is mainly because bronzer is actually a lot harder to get it right than we we think. Here’s the low-down.

I have Chantecaille Compact Soleil Bronzer in shade Capri. I think is perfect for pale skins. It has a matte finish so it is great for bronzing and subtle contouring, with a super fine texture that makes it really easy to apply.

It uses micronising technology to ensure the powder is so lightweight that it delivers a silky, almost creamy finish for a flawless result.

Capri is a fabulous natural tone which isn’t at all orange. It gives the skin a beautiful soft sun kissed glow.

Here is it on my skin!

It adds a very subtle and flawless looking warmth that really lifts my complexion and gently sculpts my cheekbones. So you can make a better judgement, I have a before and after shot.

This is a light application,  but it is easily buildable for a warmer or more defined look.  It requires hardly any blending at all and is seriously easy to work with. I also love the compact – it is sleek and slim, so ideal for your handbag or for travel. It’s such a winner!

It also contains Gingko Biloba and Wild Rose to heal and protect skin. Bonus! Chantecaille Compact Soleil Bronzer also comes in 2 other shades – Tahiti and St Barth’s. Check them out at Space NK.

  1. I really like the look of this, and so nice to see a lighter bronzer for us pale girls.. I always struggle to find something that won’t make me look orange! St Barth’s looks like a good contour colour too. x
