Learn More About Brow Blushes and Bronzers
Blush and bronzer are two beauty essentials that can create gorgeous dimension and elevate any beauty look. Though both serve similar purposes, they differ primarily in the way they are used and the looks they achieve. We’ve broken down each product and pro tips for your best blush and best bronzer looks yet.
Why use blush?
If you are looking to add a pop of targeted color, blush is the way to go. The vibrant, fresh dose of pink offers a rosy glow, especially crucial when skin can look dull and pale during cooler winter months. That being said, blush is a good year-round choice, and a classic in the cosmetics world for a reason. We recommend trying Blush Trio, an essential blush palette featuring 3 full-pigment blush shades in a finely milled, blendable formula. Each shade in this blush makeup kit provides buildable intensity and a seamless finish and can be mixed together to create a diverse variety of face makeup looks. Apply blush directly to the apples of the cheeks and upper cheek plane. For a soft wash of color, apply the shades in the blush palette with a light sweeping motion. For a more saturated color look, apply Blush Trio using a stippling motion.
What is the use of bronzer?
Bronzer is best for looking sun-kissed, delivering an all-over warmth and summery glow. It also falls under the category of contouring makeup, as long as the shade is matte and free from shimmer to best chisel out your features. Achieve these looks with ABH Powder Bronzer, a finely milled bronzing powder that provides a natural-looking matte finish with buildable coverage. This professional-quality powder bronzer feels weightless on the face and body and blends seamlessly to add warmth for an effortless sun-kissed makeup look. Bronzer has versatility of placement, and can be used on the cheekiness, jaw, or brow to add glow or to contour. For a naturally sun-kissed bronze, choose a shade that is 1–2 shades deeper than your skin tone. For a more intense bronze, choose a shade that is 2–3 shades deeper than your skin tone. A large, tapered, natural fiber makeup brushes is ideal for sweeping Powder Bronzer across the forehead, cheeks, jawline and body for a seamless, sun-kissed finish, while a medium, round natural fiber makeup brush is best for applying with precise placement and payoff.
Can you use blush and bronzer together?
Amazing on their own and amazing together, using both blush and bronzer can create an incredibly overall natural finish. Start by applying blush to the apples of your cheeks and follow up by sweeping bronzer on the hallows of your cheeks for lifted cheekbones. Always start with a light hand and be sure to blend for a smooth color gradient.
