Favourite Face Products Part 2
The second step to have a flawless finish is incorporating products such as bronzer, blush, and luminizer into your makeup routine. These products pull your foundation routine together and can give you a truly flawless look.
1. NARS Laguna Bronzer: This is my all-time favourite bronzer. It gives you that healthy sun kissed look like the name suggests. It's a brown-based bronzer with shimmer that goes on without looking orange and the shimmer gives you a nice glow without being overwhelming.
Victoria's Secret Baked Mineral Powder: This bronzer is a great, more affordable alternative compared to the NARS Laguna bronzer. It comes in three different shades; I use the shade Goddess. This baked bronzer applies well, very blendable, and has very fine shimmer to give a beautiful VS model-like glow.
2. Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick: These highlights are great for giving a natural glow to your complexion. They come in five bars of pearlescent shades that can also be used as eyeshadows. I use the shade Nectar and apply it lightly to my cheekbones, the bridge of my nose, and a little in the centre of my forehead to brighten up my skin.
Benefit's High Beam: If you're thinking of trying a liquid highlight, High Beam would be a great choice. However, it does create a pearly pink dewy look so if you have oily skin this might not be for you. It's really easy to work with, apply a few dots with the brush applicator and blend it out with your fingers.
3. Tarte Amazonian Clay 12hr Blush: This is long-wearing baked blush that will last you all day. What's great about this blush is that it will adjust to your skin type. For example, if you have oily skin, the ingredients in the blush will work to minimize the natural oils to keep your skin balanced and help the blush to last longer. There are multiple different shades; I have the shades Warm Peach and Glisten.
MAC Blushes: With countless different shades from the permanent collection to limited edition, MAC blushes have always been a cult favourite. With both powder and cream blushes, it's guaranteed there's a match for everyone. I have several MAC blushes in my collection I could write a whole separate post on, but at the moment my favourite blush is Springsheen, a sheer tone blush. It's comparable to NARS' blush in orgasm but not as strong, however Springsheen is definitely buildable.
