What is the One Beauty Product You Should Never Live Without?

Bronzer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We spoke to Mobile Makeup Artist Anna Grimes of Beautymarkartists.com and she gave us her professional opinion about bronzer:

“Bronzer is my best friend and if I had to run out the door and could only grab one makeup product it would be my bronzer! My ultimate favorite bronzer that I use everyday, and that is flattering to almost every skin tone, would have to be

Chanel’s Moisturizing Bronzer Powder in Terre Epice.  It gives the skin warmth, a subtle illumination, and is oil-free.

Another favorite of mine, that can be used in many different ways, is Too Faced Caribbean In A Compact – Snow Bunny.  You can sweep your brush over all three colors for a shimmery bronze glow that is not too brown because the pink helps balance it out.  You can also sweep your brush in the white or in the pink for an illuminating effect on your upper cheekbones.”

Thank you Anna for this great tip!!! Readers, because we love you we found a video by  and she shows you “How to Apply Bronzer”. So now you know what are the best bronzers on the market and how to apply it. Enjoy 🙂

“Makeup primers totally make a difference! I don’t work without them. At the bare minimum I always use a good eyeshadow primer to intensify the color as well as keeping the shadow from creasing a couple of favorites are:

Primer Potion by Urban Decay

and for the budget conscious makeup artist, NYX cosmetics makes a very admirable creme primer in 3 different shades/effects.”
