Today I had some free time on my hands to reorganize some of my makeup and I thought I should share with you some of my favorite blushes and bronzers.
I picked some pinks, some corals, some peaches, some warm, sun kissed bronzers, some baked blushes, some matte ones, some shimmery - but all pretty and lovely.
I tried to make a balance between drugstore and high end products, to give an option for every kind of budget.
Essence has some really affordable and good blushes. For about 2 euro you can get these lovely silky shades that look natural and beautiful on skin and so easy to blend! Dior and Guerlain have some of the most amazing bronzing powders, luxurious packaging, light feather texture and beautiful design. I have never been sorry for splurging on any of these products!
1.Guerlain Terracotta Joli Teint Powder, its a duo blush powder with a soft, smooth, opaque texture, amazing smell, easy to blend, perfect for yellow toned fair skin. Funny thing: I still keep the photo from when this powder blush was all new and untouched :) look how insanely pretty !
2.Sephora Colorful Blush in 16 Heated! long lasting, sheer texture that allows to build up intensity, it has a little bit of shimmer but the overall look its pretty natural and it reminds me of Nars Orgasm.
3.Milani Baked Blush in Berry Amore, a brownish berry shade with gold insertions, very pigmented and smooth in texture but also very shimmery, perfect for medium olive tone skin. This blush looks incredible on tanned skin.
4.Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder in 01 Light- Brunettes, smells amazing and it has been described by Guerlain as a “joyful blend of bergamot and mandarin blended with sunny, femininen notes of gardenia [with] woody, vanilla notes.” This bronzer has an amazing and ultra soft texture. It offers an instant beautiful and natural tan and glow at any time of year. This bronzer is legendary !
5.Essence Silky Touch Blush in 30 Secret it-girl, beautiful summer color, a warm peach almost coral with a subtle shimmer, it blends very easy...... sadly I think this shade has been discontinued.
6.Makeup Studio Blusher Lumiere in Silk Rose. This is more of a baked blush,very similar to Milani as texture,very shimmery. It was love at first sight with this rosy-mouve blush. It's quite small, only 1.8g but it has an amazing pigmentation, so you will not run out of it too fast. The blush is light feather you dont even feel it on your skin and it gives a super glow, no need for extra highlighter.
7.Dior Skin Nude Air Glow Powder in 002, one of the cult sellers at DIOR. I bought it last summer and I have been using it a lot, all the time no matter the season. It is a soft peach color with golden shimmer and when you swipe them all together it looks absolutely amazing. The shimmer its barely visible on skin, its just adds a beautiful glow.
8.Flormar Terracotta Powder in multicolor. For many years this was one of my favorite bronzer and highliter, and this was way before influencers, Instagram and all the glow trend. This is the product that made me shineeeeee when nobody else was! After almost 7 years or maybe even longer I am still crazy about this product and I hope it wasn't discontinued.
9.Flormar Pretty Compact Blush On Duo: coral & beige. I think it looks different now, the case it's not pink anymore but black. This blush had a very soft formula, good pigmentation and a bit of shimmer, not too much and not visible on the skin. It blends really easy and adds a natural glow to the skin.
10.essence "Happy Girls are Pretty" blush ( limited collection) in 01 you sweeten my day. This blush is labeled as a multi color blush but is a duo blush because it only has 2 shades, a soft light pink and a brighter pink in a hearth shape.The light pink shade it's iridescent while the hearth part in the middle is matte. All together, really beautiful. It gives a subtitle radiant glow.
11.Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso (left ) and Berry Amore (right). Luminoso is peachy golden and suits fair to medium skin tones, while Berry Amore is more suitable for medium to dark skin tones. Very good pigmentation and soft formula.
12.Essence Silky Touch Blush in 20 Babydoll "; a dusty rose blush, perfect for fair to medium skin tones.
The essence blush might look smaller than the Milani Baked Blush but it actually bigger! The essence blush has 5g while Milani baked blush has only 3,5g.
13.P2 Mission: Summer Look Face Bronzer in 010 Ivory Bronze (limited collection ) a gorgeous deep shimmery baked bronzer with gold and white highlighting pigments. Perfect for adding radiance and warmth to a beautiful tanned skin.
14.Catrice Sun Glow Matt Bronzing Powder in 030 Medium Bronze, silky, soft with vitamin E, it looks almost like Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder in 01 Light- Brunettes.
