Before we talk about winning your best bronzer, let's talk about bronzer fails: how many of us have at least one discarded compact that was either too dark, too light, too sparkly or too orange? Ugh. And remember when we were supposed to sweep it all over our foreheads, across cheeks and the bridge of the nose, and chin? It didn't take long to improve shade options, or to refine the application to enhance bone structure (see our bronzer-application videos here, here and here). But having choices comes with another complication: how to choose?
If you're a Guerlain Terracotta fan, you know the Terracotta collection includes a great range of beautifully formulated bronzers, in shades that range from fair blondes to darker complexion brunettes in finishes from shimmery to velvet matte. To help consumers make the best-for-them choice online, Guerlain's created a quick Terracotta Consultation section at guerlain.com. Says the welcome page, "It takes less than 2 minutes to discover which Terracotta is made for you!"
Plus, we're pleased to offer Beautygeeks readers a chance to be one of three winners of a Terracotta that best fits them according to the consultation! Best part: this giveaway is open to Canada- and US-based readers. Yay!

Most of us have some kind of bronzer horror story, right? The two I've heard most often involve the words "oompa-loompa" or "disco-ball glitter." Those should be less common complaints now because options have expanded to include warm and cool bronze shades as well as no-sparkle sheen and velvety mattes. But if you shop online, choosing from a comprehensive array of formulas without a little help can be time-wasting (I waffled for ages).
Guerlain's Terracotta Consultation bases its choice on a series of answers you provide via queries about your hair colour and complexion's undertone. Model-face examples provide a bit of a guide to ensure you and Guerlain are on the same skintone-page.
The Guerlain My Terracotta Consultation process is super easy and super quick; it's really only a couple of questions. Yet it can really streamline making a decision by confirming quickly that you're on the right track or showing you in seconds that you've been choosing incorrectly all along (oops).

Now let's get to making this a fun Tuesday. We'll start with a little background: this season, Guerlain created fun summer outfits for their Terracotta bronzer compacts. Sunny lime, coral, turquoise, raspberry, fuchsia and yellow silicone sleeves make your bronzer a cinch to find in your makeup case, and provide a little extra slip/drop insurance too.
Here's the best part: Beautygeeks has three limited-edition lime silicone sleeves to give away, and each one comes with the core bronzer shade and finish best suited to your complexion! (Special-edition bronzers not eligible.)
The Beautygeeks Guerlain My Terracotta giveaway is open until Tuesday/ Wednesday July 22 at midnight to Beautygeeks residents of Canada and of the United States. You must be 18 years old or older to enter. Winners will be selected once the contest closes and notified via email. More entry rules at the end of the post; good luck, lovelies!
