Bronzer, Blush and Highlighter; Simple and Subtle

Hi guys, today is a Monday which means a new post from me! In todays blogpost I am going to be showing you my go-to subtle bronzer, blush and highlight choice. 
Bronzer
Rimmel Sun Compact Powder; Light Shimmer – As you can see in the photo, I have hit pan, I rarely hit pan with my products so this shows how much I enjoy this bronzer. Additions to my bronzer collection like hoola and bahama mama, have seen this one brushed aside at times, but on a day where I am wearing a subtler makeup look this is my go to bronzer. It is extremely blendable, doesn’t look muddy or cake up on your skin; an all round winner in my opinion! I use a Real Techniques retractable bronzer brush to apply this as I think it picks up the perfect amount of product and is fluffy enough to use to blend out.
Blush
Soul Sunday Cheek Rouge; Rosa – Dark pink blushes suit my complexion the best and look the most natural. Using my Real Techniques Bold Metals tapered blush brush I take a small amount of product by tapping the excess off the brush and dust lightly onto the apples of my cheeks in circular motions. The loose pigmentation of this product allows you to disperse the product more evenly over your cheek rather than clumping in one place. 

Highlighter
Body Shop Honey Bronze Highlighting Dome; 01 Golden – I find cream highlighters to be more subtle in general and easier to blend out if you want to make them even subtler. The highlighting dome is a very creamy consistency so blends extremely well but almost sets after a while, it doesn’t leave a crust on your skin however. I use my Real Techniques buffing brush, which is my foundation brush, to buff the edges out to make it seamless with my foundation and bronzer. This has a gorgeous shimmer to it, I often use it as a base and apply a more intense highlighter on top like Mary lou manizer or soft and gentle.
Hope you enjoyed todays blogpost, these are my favourite simple and subtle products, what are yours? 
See you on Thursday!
