Bronzers are one of those makeup items that seem like they wouldn’t work for darker skinned complexions. However, if the right shade is chosen, a bronzer can help bring warmth and dimension to the face that is sometimes taken away by foundation. In today’s installation of my Highlighter/Bronzer series, I wanted to show you some that will work for ladies with a similar skin tone to mine.
Can I just start this post by saying, I have waaaay too many highlighters! I knew I had a good amount because I’m obsessed with them, but I never knew just how many until I pulled them out for this post.

During the Chic Week sale at Sephora a few weeks ago, I picked up two blushes from Illamasqua. (Click HERE to see the other items I purchased). I have always heard good things about Illamasqua, but had never given them a chance. Blushes and lipsticks are my favorite makeup items to buy, so while I had the 15% off coupon, I decided to buy Excite and Tweak blushes. Keep reading for swatches and comparisons.
Finding the right nude lipstick can be a very daunting task for any woman. It can be even harder to find the right shade if you are of a deeper complexion because too light of a shade may make you look very scary! Please don’t walk out of the house looking like Tyrone Biggums (see above)! In this post I will be sharing some of my go-to nude lipsticks that will work for many different skin tones.
