Time for part 3 of my Top 5 Series and this week I am talking brush and bronzers. I am not a huge fan of bronzers but I have a couple that if I am to wear them I pick every time, mostly this will just be about blushes.
Vivo 'peaches & cream' baked blush
This is my holy grail of blushes. It has warm peachy tones which are perfect for adding a pinch of colour for the autumn/winter months. For £4 its a bargain plus its a reasonable sized product so it will last a really long time. Who said supermarket cosmetics brands are lame?
Vivo 'Cinnamon Glow' Baked blush
Technically this is a blush but I prefer to use this as a light bronzer. I really like the warm tones in the blush which make it darker. The powder is really light which allows the colour to be built up from a light bronze to a darker bronze dependent on your skin tone. Again, its £4 for a good sized product.
ELF Natural Radiance Blush in 'Innocence'
This is my go to summer blush, on those days that I decide wearing make up is a good idea I like to swap out the warmer shades for some lighter shades. As you can see from the picture there is a slight dent in this one as I used it so much last summer which will become bigger when spring/summer gets here. Another light powder good for building colour without looking cakey. It's also £1.50, it gets better!
Topshop Cheeks in 'Prism'
This is such a pretty highlight/light bronze colour. It gives off a light gold colour which blends so easily due to its creamy consistency. You only need a small amount as it blends out a lot and you don't want really shiny cheeks. Another way to use this is to dot it on your cheek bones to create a nice highlight and definition. I'm not sure if its still available but if it is, go get it.
ELF 'Blushed & Bronzed' Duo
I have heard a lot of people comparing the bronzer to the Nars 'Laguna' bronzer but for a fraction of the price (being £3.50 for the duo) I used this so much when I first got it, and probably wore a little too much, but if I am in a bronzer mood this is one of the ones I reach for to create a summer glow. Makes me realise that I need a tan!
I am in the process of writing a selection of posts so that I have some prepared to avoid those awkward 'I have no time to write a post' stages. Not sure what Top 5 I will do next week so let me know if there are any particular ones you want to see.
