Hey guys! I thought that it would be quite fun to do a post about my favourite blushes and bronzers, because after all they are the things that transform your makeup. I've picked six of my favourites (three of each), a few being higher-end and a couple drugstore ones so there is hopefully atleast one that would suit you! Now onto the products, starting off with bronzers first and then blushes!
The bronzer that I have been using the longest has to be from the Sleek Face Form palette, as it's a perfect bronzer. This actually comes in a palette with a blush and highlighter (which are lovely too), but for the sake of this post just imagine they aren't there! The bronzer shade is perfect for my skin, plus it is matte for those of you who are wondering.
The pigmentation isn't that strong, but that can be quite handy as it makes it slightly easier to buildup and it reduces the risk of ending up with an orange line where you've over-applied it (you all know what I'm talking about)! It is also easy to blend, and last all day.
GloMinerals is a brand that I hadn't actually heard of before getting this bronzer, so I was really excited to test it out! I must say that this has quickly become one of my favourite bronzers for a number of reasons. First off it blends beautifully, which I learnt the first time I used it and put slightly too much on my brush - woops! It is also very, very pigmented - you only need to lightly dab your brush in the powder and you have enough to bronze everywhere you need.
In the pan it does actually look like there is a lot of shimmer in the bronzer, which did make me a bit apprehensive at first, but when applied I can barely recognise any sort of shimmer!
The Bourjois Delice De Pourdre Bronzing Powder is probably known to most bloggers as the bronzer that smells and looks like chocolate! I know that some people think that the shade 51 is fairly orange, but for me I can't really see the orange once applied.
There is a slightest shimmer, however when applied to the skin you don't notice it, so it's great to use for contouring! It also blends nicely and lasts all day without wear. This is just a generally nice and purse-friendly bronzer which is definitely worth picking up, if you don't already own it!
Ginger Pop is a pretty satin pinky coral shade, which is set in the cutest little daisy shape! The formulation is gorgeous, as it's very smooth and doesn't feel powdery, helping it also feel light and airy on the skin. As for pigmentation it is spot-on, not too strong and not too weak, making it the perfect blush to blend onto the skin with minimal effort!
This is a blush that I have mentioned many, many times on my blog in the past! Rather than being the generic peach or pink toned blush, this is a shimmering rose shade which I think is beautiful. The pigmentation is very high, so a high dab on your brush is all that you need! I must have used this atleast fifty times, and there is barely a tend in the powder "dome", meaning that even though it's on the pricey side I'd definitely say that it's worth the money!
I had heard quite a few bloggers talking about the Daniel Sandler Watercolour Blushes in the past, namely Essie Button, and I was really intrigued by them! The thought of a blush that is like a watercolour paint just sounded very strange, but like it could be a very good idea. I was lucky enough to be able to try one out in the shade Cherub and it is honestly an amazing blush!
You need to use the smallest bit of blush on the end of your finger, since they are seriously pigmented, then I just blend it in quickly with my finger tips! I love how easy it is to apply, plus the shade is a lovely light rose shade that seems to suit me really well. You do need to be careful with how quickly you apply it as it dries quickly, so just be a little cautious of that! I'm definitely going to have to buy some more of these blushes as they are great, plus I don't think that £15.50 is that bad for a bottle of blush that will last me ages.
They are my best blush and bronzers! I hope that you enjoyed this post, and if you'd like me to do more like this in the future then let me know. I'd love to know if you've tried any of the blushes or bronzers mentioned, and what you thought of them!
What are your favourite blushes and bronzers?
