Beauty Test Drive: NARS Super Orgasm Blush

My friend Aileen and I popped into Sephora a couple weeks ago so I could grab a new face powder, and of course we ended up staying for two hours and testing every single product and fragrance in the store. When our epic cosmetic journey brought us to the NARS section, I spotted their new…

Let The Sun Shine In (On Your Skin)

Finding the right bronzing powder for your skin tone can be a bit of a trick. Too dark, and you look Snooki-fied, too light, and it won't show up at all. That's why I am falling all over myself for Fresh's "Here Comes The Sun" face palette. The palette actually includes two different shades of…

Choosing A Summer Bronzer

It's not quite summer yet, but I'm ready for that summer glow. I'm not one for self-tanners, so I think bronzers are a great way to get the sunkissed look of a tan without spending hours in the sun, which, having had skin cancer, I'm under strict orders from my dermatologist not to . But…

Beauty Test Drive: Napoleon Perdis Ultimate Contour Palette

Cheek bones: all of of us have got them, but some of us need do so some heavy lifting with the makeup brushes to make 'em visible. I've got the random collection of blushes, bronzers and highlighters that women can accumulate over time and I know just which ones — all different brands, in different…

5 Paychecks To A Better Makeup Bag

Real talk: when it comes to shopping, a single, professional lady's eyes are usually bigger than her stomach. I am not just referring to coveting $250 sandals that you really don't need. I'm taking about the way we try to tackle huge style or beauty problems all at once. We watch too many chick flick…

Get Your Glow On

There was once a time, long ago, when I -- desperate to maintain a yearlong tan -- used bronzer made for African-Americans. I finally figured out that wasn't the most "natural"-looking way to go, and have tried many bronzers since, but didn't find the perfect one until now. LORAC's bronzer, first of all, comes i…

What’s Happening Here? Bronzer Face Edition

It's weird enough that this model is walking the runway at the Carlos Diez Spring 2011 presentation in an adult size onesie covered with hairpieces. But then he's also got a face full of bronzer like there's no tomorrow. Like he fell face down in a pile of bronzer. Or cake batter. Or…

How To Bronze Without Channeling An Oompah Loompah

The second Sprign rolls around people start to think it's the perfect excuse to go batsh*t crazy with bronzer. Dude, it's barely 60 degrees out, no one believes you've magically become ten shades darker in this weather.

Becca Bronzer Is Bitchin’

I've been scared to use bronzer since an experiment went so terribly wrong for me circa freshman year of high school: I thought I was using bronzer sparingly, but pictures from back in the day reveal I looked like an oompa loompa. The mere thought of returning to those months of orange-y glow is a…
