It’s that time of the year…Bronzer Time

I am pale. Very pale. All through the year I use blush and bronzer- but during the summer I amp up the bronzer. I don’t get tan- I use SPF 85! So I fake it with bronzer.

One of my favorite ones is a bareMinerals product. Not surprising- I love their products. Warmth is one of my favorites. One of the best things about it is it is layerable. You can wear it lightly to just provide a little sun to your face. Or you can amp it up. It is great for my sensitive skin. Also one $20 container lasts forever.  I love, love, love this product.

I also love their cheek colors. I have Giddy Pink, Laughter and Aubergine and they are all great. They provide beautiful color without irritation. I can’t rave enough about them. Also, as I talked about in my post Breaking the bareMinerals rules, you can mix and match them with any foundation!

The beautiful Bare Minerals I have- Warmth,  Laughter, Aubergine and Giddy Pink. I recommend them all for a touch of color or more intense if you layer them.

Another bronzer that I just found that doesn’t bother my skin is Neutrogena Healthy Skin Blends in Natural Radiance Bronzer. It provides a pretty light color- it is subtle. But if you are looking for a more natural hint of color- this is what you need. It is great no matter how sensitive your skin in. And for around $11- it is a great price.

The Neutrogena bronzer. I swirl my BareMinerals brush around all of the colors and apply.

This Laura Mercier Primer  looks really interesting. It goes on under your foundation and provides color. Would love to try it.

Pretty Pink Eyeshadows

I have always used lots of purples on my eyes. I thought the purples were great for my hazel/ brown eyes. I still use beautiful purples- but another color I have learned to love on my eyes is pink.

It is an easy look you can pick a pretty pink and use it by itself if you are in a hurry.

My eyes- just with a pink color.

The Too Faced Bonjour Summer palette has a beautiful pink- Plumeria. It looks more intense but goes on pretty light and it is beautiful. This is one of favorite pinks to use.

The pretty pink- Plumeria comes in the Bonjour Summer palette. If you can't find this palette- the sugar pop eye palette has a color- bubble gum in it which is very similar.

You can add to the look by lining with brown and putting a light brown or copper in the crease.

The pink really makes brown/ hazel eyes pop.  I put it all over my lid and then line with a brown on top and black underneath. I also have a copper color in the crease.
The pink is really great for brown/ hazel eyes pop.

You can get all of these shadows at one of my favorite places ever- Sephora. I am going there later today with my sister and nieces! A great mother’s day gift- a shopping trip with people I love! And maybe it will include buying more pink eye shadow!
