“I can’t live without my bronzah!!”

23 Aug

The results from our Friday poll are in!  One of the makeup style/products you are most scared to try is bronzer. I don’t think this would have been the result if we asked Snookie from “Jersey Shore” or Olivia from “Jerseylicious.”

The Jerseylicious girls can’t live without their “bronzzzzah!”

And Snooks is PO-ed over the whole tanning bed tax.

The way bronzer is intended to be used is to give that kissed by the sun look. We all know now-a-days that bronzer is one of the most abused products and maybe that’s why we are so afraid of it. The key to bronzer is two things; a little goes a long way and it should be applied to everywhere the sun touches (forehead, cheek bones, bridge of nose etc.)

A very easy way to start off with a bronzed look is to use shimmer or bronzer powder. Red’s favorite shimmer that she uses all of the time during the summer is MAC Iridescent Loose Powder in Golden Bronze.  Powder shimmers and bronzers are super easy to apply.  Take a large fluffy brush and dip into the powder. Tap the brush several times to remove any excess and then brush along the forehead, temples, bridge of the nose, cheeks, and tip of chin. Make sure it is well blended.

Some simple powder bronzers to try:

MAC Iridescent Lose Powder in Golden Bronze

Benefit Boxed Powders Collection – Hoola

Smashbox Fusion Soft Lights

Guerlain Terracotta Light Summer Bronzing Powder


If a powder isn’t your thing go for a liquid bronzer.  With a handy a dandy makeup sponge, application is too easy. Simply put a little bit of the liquid onto the makeup sponge and just dab it lightly onto your cheeks, temples, bridge of nose – you know everywhere the sun hits.  Some liquid bronzers we like:

Guerlain Terracotta Spray SPF 10

Cargo Multi Mix Bronzer

Bronzer was the winner earlier in the day, but we forgot to close the poll and got another vote that ended up causing a tie between bronzer and red lipstick. Tomorrow we will do part 2 and talk about how to do red lips, so no worries! We’ve got your back!
