Beauty Favorites: Bronzer + Blush + Highlight/ContourTuesday, March 08, 2016
Laura Gellar Bronze and Brighten I use this after contouring to add a finishing layer of powder bronzer to my cheek bones and sides of my forehead and nose. It does have a bit of a shimmer, which I like but can be overbearing if you apply too much (learned that quickly).
Milani Baked Blush The 'luminous' shade is a dupe for Nars Orgasm and is such a close match at a fraction of the price. I had been using Nars and loved it, but not the price and I'm so glad I found this dupe.
Benefit High Beam LOVE this! The small brush makes it so easy to apply onto your cheekbones for a little extra glow. I don't use this everyday, only on certain occasions, but I wanted to mention it because its a great product to try out if you're looking for dewy highlight to make your cheekbones pop.
Motives Mavens Sculpt Series My first contour kit and a great one to start with. I use the fire one which is for warm/yellow undertones. The palette comes with 4 hues which is great for blending together and finding your perfect tone. Since this palette is more of a cream base, I feel like it lasts a lot longer and has great coverage especially for highlighting.
NYX Highlight and Contour Pro Palette This is a fairly new (to me) product that I've been trying out. I like that it has 8 shades and goes on more of a powder where as the motives palette is more of a cream texture. The highlighting shades are also fairly light which is great for adding extra highlight under your eyes to help conceal undereye darkness/circles.
Have y'all used any of these products, what are your thoughts? Also, I'd love to hear about some bronzer, blush or highlight/contouring products that y'all are loving! xo, S
