I have similar coloring and believe it or not, Medium was not too orangey or dark (and I'd never tried a bronzer before). If you really want a subtle look, go with Light, but don't be frightened by the color of Medium in the pan--this goes on sheerly enough (it's buildable) that you won't turn out looking like an oompa-loompa.

if you are fair, go with the light! I'm light-medium and sometimes I have to build it a bit (i probably should have gotten natural), but for you, it should be great.

Question
hope its not too orangey
I must have purchased at least 6 different bronzing powders in the past year. None have been working. It seems as soon as it goes on my skin it looks like pale orange, or gold. I have lots of red pigments in skin and am very fair. I was about to purchase the natural shade in BB but wanted to know if Im not making an error. Please help.

I have this in natural and it is just that, natural. I don't find it too orange or golden, just natural tan. Very layerable.

The bronzing powder gives a natural look without looking orange. I also use St. Tropez bronzing mousse to add a little color to my fair skin.

Is this bronzer shimmery? Could you use the bronzer for contour?

The bronzer is not shimmery. Once its on, it doesn't look much like makeup at all. I have the lightest shade, and it can be successfully built up to give a darker tan look, or applied lightly for just a little color. I don't contour, so I'm not exactly sure, but I think you could use it for contouring with the right blush.

I had the same question because I'm also very fair skinned. I took a chance on the natural and I'm glad I did. Just dust it on lightly and it is wonderful and gives just the right glow.

My skin is prone to breakouts and acne but this bronzer didn't make me break out at all! Of course with ALL make-up, be sure to wash your face before going to bed.

I have acne prone skin, which I recommend using bronzer because it is more natural and wouldn't clog your pores as much as foundation.

I also have olive skin tone. I bought the Natural shade because it is light but buildable. It has a slight beige/reddish tone which is perfect for our skin tone. the medium shade was a little to dark for me. Hope this helps :)

I am on your same boat with the tanning (ugh, but we just look prettier tanner!!) and I stick with the medium for when I am tan. It does not have orange in it, so it does not look too tan. Some times when I think I put too much on, I just use a dry washcloth and wipe a liiiittle off. It works wonders! Hope I helped!

If you are medium with yellow, you should be fine with medium or darker. Use a feathery-light brush for application. I am blonde/blue eyed with very fair skin and use the lightest bare minerals shades. I bought the light shade and use it with the feather light bare minerals brush and it is PERFECT.
Not heavy, cakey, streaky. In fact, the brush is going to be key as it does not come with an applicator. I think the shade of medium will not be too dark at all. In fact, it seems easy to layer for darker effect.
