NARS purchases and bronzing it up!
I've been really into the bronzy look right now, these are my celebrity inspirations. Sienna Miller always looks beachy and gorgous, Sanaa Lathan has naturally bronzed perfect skin and JLo always has pretty golden/bronze makeup. I think bronzes and peaches look best on my skin rather than silvers and cool toned pinks and reds. I thought I would check out a bronzer that would add a glow to my face for that sunkissed St. Tropez look!
I already own Casino by NARS, but I find that its too dark and red for an all over glow but it's great for contouring. So I purchased the bronzer Laguna by NARS. Laguna is a cooler toned brown, compared to Casino. I would say that Laguna has a yellow undertone and Casino has a red undertone. I use Laguna all over my face concentrating on my cheeks, browbone and the tip of my nose to even out my skin tone and give myself a natural glow.
I also bought Golden Member, a cream blush by NARS. It is a sheer yellow gold cream blush with shimmer that I use on top of my cheekbones. It really enhances my complexion and makes my skin glow. I love that it has very fine shimmers in it so it makes your skin look radiant (chunky glitters tend to have a disco ball look).
