If you like a glowy cheek, Bobbi Brown’s Shimmer Brick in Rose delivers! If you need to revive dull skin, Bobbi Brown’s Shimmer Brick in Rose delivers!
With just the right amount of pearly color and sheen to light up the high points of the face, this smooth brush-on powder doubles as a great highlighter and/or a great blush. And unlike most highlighters out there, it somehow doesn’t emphasize pores. The result is subtle, shimmery, healthy, natural looking skin. And the color is perfection! Rose is truly rosy and works on most skin tones for a healthy flush and a luminous glow, all in one package!
As a highlighter:
Swirl your brush over all the 5 colors in the palette to mix them together, and run it over the top of your cheeks, temples, nose, chin, and even lids.
As a blush:
Swirl your brush over all the 5 colors and apply them to the apples of your cheeks. The results? Like Nars Orgasm, but more subtle.
Now, the Shimmer Brick may seem pricey but you do get a lot for your money. This brick will last you years – very little truly goes a very long way!
You can even apply it to the center of your bottom lip before using gloss, for a fuller Jolie pout.

While I love a hearty sun kissed look, I do prefer it from a bottle than the sun. Don’t want to invite any unnecessary wrinklage. But finding a bronzer that does the trick is not an easy task, especially with an olive skintone. Most bronzers either make my skin look muddy or sallow, and baked clay is definitely not the look I’m going after.
But thanks to a couple of dear friends, I discovered Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel Sheer Illuminating Fluid in Sunkissed. It imparts a sheer yet radiant healthy glow that truly looks natural! A SUBTLE lit-from-within-look that works on every skin tone!
How To Use:
For a truly a sophisticated luminous glow, mix it into your foundation or apply it after, for a kick on all the high points of the face that the sun would kiss: bridge of nose, cheekbones, temples, chin… No sparkles or glitter here. Soleil Tan De Chanel can even double as a blush for the most luminous of flushes! And a tiny bit goes a long way. This bottle will last you years!
And a bonus, it’s Oil Free, Fragrance Free, and will work on even the palest of skins.
Always shake first.
Blend quickly once you apply it for a subtle but stunning effect.
P.S. It photographs beautifully!
