You know how everyone has that one product they have to put on their face no matter where they are going? My product is bronzer! Even if I don’t wear foundation, blush, concealer, or powder, I always put on bronzer. There is something about the way it makes my cheeks look that I love. A light brush of bronzer allows me to have the natural look without looking caked on for day to day activities.
Not everyone is a fan of bronzer. A lot of people don’t understand what’s the purpose of it if you have a dark complexion. Everyone always asks me “don’t you want to look lighter and doesn’t that stuff just make you look darker?” I don’t necessarily agree with that. I think bronzer has a way of making your cheeks glow and highlighting cheekbones. **BEAUTY TIP**It can also make those who don’t have very high cheek bones look as if they do. Just because you weren’t born with them doesn’t mean you can’t look like you have them! #justsaying
I have 3 favorite bronzers. I ranked them below in order of most to least favorite (but keep in mind all three are great and work differently for different people/occasions).
- Bare Minerals Warmth: This is my absolute FAV. It’s my every day bronzer. Because I already have tan skin, it provides just the right tone of red to my skin to help my cheekbones stand out.
- MAC Bronzing Powder Matte Bronze: This is the bronzer I use more for when I go out. I purposely by the Matte one without shimmer because I like to add shimmer with a good blush and highlighter rather than just trying to use one product to do all three (gives a better finish).
- LORAC Tantalizer: For those of you who are looking for a product that DOES bronze, blush, and highlight all in one, this is it! It is highly pigmented and gives the same effect as the three in one product.
I wanted to show the difference between a celeb who actually has high cheek bones and one that just looks like they do with the help of their glam squad. What’s the Point? Well, I really want people to understand that you have the ability to look like these celebs do whether you believe it or not!
Jessica Biel (on the left) DOES have naturally high cheekbones while Christina Aguilera (on the right) does NOT. Christina Aguilera has a rounder face but look how much her cheeks are radiating! You too can make your cheekbones appear higher than they actually are with the proper tools.
SIDE NOTE: I always link the products I suggest to a website where you can buy them. If you want to try these products out, hit on the link and it will direct you to a retailer that sells it. I do recommend going into the store and trying it on first, but this will allow you to see the price of the product and a store that for sure carries it.
What bronzer gives YOU the highest cheekbones?
