Bronzed Goddess

Besides mascara, my favorite makeup product is bronzer. I have always been extremely fair and when I finally started wearing bronzer, it changed my life.

Summer is approaching and that is my favorite time to wear bronzer. I love shimmery bronzers, matte bronzers, powder, creme and liquid.

Here’s a list of my favorite bronzers.

Too Faced Sweethearts Bronzer

I absolutely love this bronzer. It gives your skin a beautiful sheen and glow. It is also on the cool toned side so it’s perfect for fair or light-medium skin.

Sonia Kashuk Undetectable Creme Bronzer

I recently purchased this creme bronzer because I love a very dewy look in the summer. I also heard that it was a great dupe for the Soleil Tan De Chanel bronzer. I love this because it doesn’t go on thick like you would think a creme bronzer would. I swirl my powder brush by Real Techniques in it and the product melts into my skin.

Hourglass Ambient® Lighting Bronzer

My favorite high-end bronzer, the Hourglass bronzers gives such a natural, luminous glow without glitter on your face. Actually, the Too Faced Sweethearts Bronzer is a great dupe for this but I still highly recommend the Hourglass.

Your Most Beautiful You Anti-Aging Face Palette

It Cosmetics makes some of my favorite face products. This palette introduced me to highlighting and bronzing and I never looked back. I especially love the bronzer in this. It it matte but doesn’t look dull on your face. If you are a beginner with makeup, I highly recommend this palette.

Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer

If you haven’t tried this bronzer you have to! A cult favorite, the Butter Bronzer has a unique creme/powder finish that melts into your skin and leaves a subtle sheen. Not only is it beautiful but it smells like coconut which puts you in a summery mood.

Current Foundation Favorites

I am always on the hunt for a foundation that is going to give me flawless skin. Since I suffer from Rosacea, I look for a foundation that is going to give me good coverage while not looking dry and cakey. I love a luminous, dewy finish and tend not to gravitate towards matte foundations. You’re face can never have too much glow. Here’s a list of my current favorite foundations.

IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better™ CC+Illumination™ Cream with SPF 50+

Although this is technically a CC cream, this foundation has become a staple in my collection. I love to wear this in the spring and summer. It gives your skin a stunning, natural luminosity while providing medium coverage. “Your Skin But Better” truly describes this product. It doesn’t look like you’re wearing foundation because it just melts into your skin and blends out beautifully.

Nars Sheer Glow Foundation

This has been my holy grail foundation for a long time. I have realized that my ideal foundation is lightweight, gives me a natural glow and medium to full coverage. That basically describes Nars Sheer Glow. The finish is not as luminous as the It CC cream but it’s luminous in a more subtle way. The coverage is medium to full and is perfect for covering my Rosacea without looking cakey, thick and dry.

Hourglass Vanish™ Seamless Finish Foundation Stick

Newer to my collection, this little stick has quickly made it into my holy grail foundations. At first I was hesitant to try a stick foundation but the reviews were incredible so I had to give it a go. The finish isn’t matte but it isn’t dewy. It is a perfect balance of the two and the finish gives you an airbrushed look.
