But once again, I disagree. Like so many things in life, the final result is all down to the skill in which said bronzer is applied. Here have a looksee.
A few things about this; I didn't do my neck. Or my hands. In fact, I've actually never done that. Even though it is nearly November and I am not exactly glowing with the sun's warm rays, I didn't want to risk having makeup all over my collar and scarf, as I was planning on sporting my white Alexander Wang mock turtle sweater and heading off to Tesco after I completed this look. Which I did. And looking very sun-kissed and fresh too I might add. I used more bronze that I probably would have otherwise, as I was conscious of the photograph's limitations and the complete lack of natural sunlight this time of year in Scotland. I wanted the look to come through the computer and into your homes. You're welcome.
So is bronze really a verboten colour for us silver-haired gals? Nah. I think Lisa nailed it when she instructed us to put just a hint of pink on over the bronze. That is the secret to success, in my opinion, and it keeps the dreaded Orange Face Syndrome at bay. Here is my finished look.
