The Blushed, the Bronzed & the Beautiful!

Any professional makeup artist will tell you that blending is essential to creating a flawless look. That's why I opt for blush and bronze duos to create a gorgeous effortless glow.

Most duo blush/bronzers are part shimmer for defining and highlighting cheekbones, while the other half serves as the pigment to give a beautiful flush of color to cheeks. The perfect combination of color and shimmer is super flattering on most BG skin tones. As you guys know, I have a serious blush/bronzer addiction. Currently, I've been using the Too-Faced set found below.

Do you wear duo or maybe even multiple blushes/bronzers?

BGG, I do not wear blushes or bronzers but I envy all the ladies who do! I'm just too scared to try it. I think I look silly with blush on my full face!

Rebee said...

I agree with K-Bear! I haven't got the guts to try it yet.

I can't go a day without bronzer. My favorite is the classic guerlain Terra cotta.

I love Blush or Bronzers! I tend to use Blush more often though. Ladies if you don't put on anything else try applying a bronzer or blush. It adds a polished effect to your look!

Rebee said...

@Nicole and BGG - I'm trying a bronzer tomorrow! I'll let you guys know how it turns out.

I just started wearing blush, although once in a while. Still need pointers on how to apply it though.

BGG, I've tried the full gamut. I want to encourage people to find a bronzer that works for them. I'm so pale in the Chicago winters, so I depend on MAC Bronzer. I use it around the hair and jawline for a natural "glow" and then do a dusting on the apples of my cheeks and the bridge of my nose. Perfect for a subtle flush!

I dont wear foundation at all but for a fresh/natural look I luv to use a bronzer. I LUV my M.A.C bronzing powder in "deeper bronze" give me that "red bone mahogany flavor"...

I usually wear blush but have never used a bronzer. The benefit color looks like it's for me though ;o)
