Our Top Picks for Blushes and Bronzers

Check Out the Most Gorgeous Blushes and Bronzers on the Market Right Now

The best opportunity to conjure a laid-back, vibrant atmosphere reminiscent of an Italian vacation is when you want something completely different – the glow of summer shining in spite of being bundled up on the couch with thick sweaters and mugs full of warm comfort beverages. This effect is especially captivating.

To get that perfect look, you need to find the right shade of blush and a hint of luminizing bronzer. It is important to note that not all shades work for everyone – people with deeper skin tones should opt for darker shades of rouge (as pale pink can appear chalky on dark skin while deep red may be too intense). For lighter skins, warmer golds or rose golds are ideal as they blend into the complexion more naturally. Ultimately it takes experimentation to see what color suits your unique features!

For an instantly uplifting look, begin with a beautiful blush. Makeup experts advocate blending it at the apples of your cheeks, then gradually working up toward your temples in a slight angle for maximum effect. Once you’ve blended that seamlessly into skin, add a hint of bronzer wherever the sun would naturally hit; this will give skin added definition and dimension. With any product from our luscious collection, you can effortlessly control intensity by adding layers—start out with less and build upon as needed.
