14 Days of Makeup Favorites Challenge-Day 4 Favorite Bronzer
One our favorite moisturizers is the Hidden Glow Brightening Cream. It is a two-in-one skincare and makeup hybrid that instantly brightens skin with light diffusing optics and brightening extracts. It helps to give skin a smoother, younger looking appearance while diminishing the appearance of dark spots and fine lines. It can be used to prep skin for makeup or worn alone for a more radiant complexion.
But let's stick to the present for now. Each week, Allure editors select the new hair, makeup, and skin-care products we're currently obsessing over. Trying to narrow down our favorites to just one or two products can be hard, but we manage. Check out what our editors can't get enough of this week.
I was first introduced to Kosas through my beauty editor days at Allure. They were a small indie clean makeup brand that so many makeup artists touted for actually having pigment and also really lovely textures and wears. Any clean/natural makeup brand that a professional editorial makeup artist recommended to me stuck in my brain since so many ticked all the boxes for being clean and natural but with lackluster performance. Their cream blush and highlighter duos were a first love of mine, and then after learning that Rami Malek and I wear the same shade of the Tinted Face Oil, I was like "OK, this is for real."
Holidays mean parties, and sometimes those parties have overlapping dates. Your dramatic Smokey Eye is cute for late night cocktails after work, but might be a little too much for the office lunch party planned on the same day. How can your makeup bag help you transform looks on the go, you ask? Boy, does Beauty For Real have some tips for you!
If you couldn't already tell, I like to keep my daily makeup routine simple. However, as much as I like keeping things simple, sometimes simple just won't cut it. My friends and I are impulsive--very impulsive. That usually means going out after classes. I keep a few products in my bag in order to glam it up for a night out. My favorite I-Line, Storm, is perfect for a smoky eye on the go. The All Day Latte Shadow STX adds a pop of burgundy to my smoky eye and it matches virtually any outfit. A Bronze + Glo in Cocoa Cabana allows for a fast and easy contour/highlight combination. The last, and most important, thing I carry around is a Lip Cream + Color and D-Fine Lip Pencil for some late-night lip color. My favorite shade is Night Before, but I sometimes switch things up with a little Barely There.
This next tip can be our little secret. During the summer, I spent most of my time avoiding the outdoors. Netflix, my bed, and sweatpants are the only things I've interacted with on most days. I don't want the world to know this. Beauty For Real's (Total) Glo helps give off the illusion I've spent countless hours getting tanned under the summer sun. The body bronzer adds a sun-kissed glow to my already brown skin, and it spreads so easily that I barely need to use any product. The formula dries into my skin, so I don't have to worry about it smudging all over my textbooks like products from the past (yikes!).
As one of the best mature skin foundations, the Airbrush Flawless Longwear Foundation is in a class of its own. Specifically, it balances and moisturizes your skin (while covering any imperfections) and is one of my favorites to wear to weddings and other special events. You need this in your life (buy now, thank us later).
It is a liquid but then it sets after a while and you get a great long wearing foundation. It really feels and acts like your skin, yet I still feel like it gives my skin great coverage. This is definitely one of my favorites in my organic beauty foundation guide.
I always love trying different cleansers and just finished using quite a few in the last few weeks. I restocked my three favorites. The Kate Somerville Gentle Daily Wash is one of best for sensitive skin but still very effective at cleaning the skin. If I had to use one brand of cleanser the rest of my life I think Kate Somerville would cover all my needs. The ExfoliKate Cleanser is a great one with a gentle clinical strength exfoliating ingredients. The Goat Milk Cleanser is great for dry skin and I love the EradiKate Daily Cleanser for acne prone skin.
Happy New Year! Rounding up the best of 2022 with my Top 5 picks in every beauty category! There are a couple of categories I went a bit over but here were my absolute favorites this year. Thank you for following along this year! Wishing you all an even better 2023!
There are a few makeup gift sets this year. The Dior Addict Pouch ($80) has two full-sized lip products in a midnight blue pouch including the Addict Lipstick in 100 Nude Look (one of my favorites) and their Lip Oil in 012 Rosewood.
