could you suggest any affordable matte bronzers? all the budget-friendly ones I seem to find are shimmering :(

Hi aoia! Thanks for dropping by! Try the Palladio Bronzer at Beauty Bar. It's a matte bronzer and it's around P675.00 only. Quite affordable. =) Also try the Mineral Matte Bronzer of Watercolors, in Shangri-La. It's around 1,280 I think. Laura Mercier carries a matte bronzer and it's about P1,650. I know Make Up For Ever, MAC and Scott Barnes have bronzers too. I'm not sure if all these will fit into your budget but you might want to check them out. =) Check out the affordable brands too such as Nichido and e.l.f. I think they have bronzers but I'm not sure if they're matte. Anyway, I think you can use a darker shade of powder foundation as a bronzer just in case. Hope this helps!
