Blushers and bronzers haven't always been my kind of thing when it comes to makeup, they've always been one step that I've just not gone for. But the other day, I was having a binge makeup tutorial watching session and I really noticed how adding a little something to those cheeks can make a big difference so I thought I'd give the whole a thing a try for myself. Here's the details on the ones I've been trying..

Max Factor has just launched a new range of Crème Puff Blushers which look suspiciously like a dupe of the Hourglass ambient lighting blushers but minus the hefty price tag. I picked up the shade seductive pink which is a very pretty pink tone with a gold highlight running through it making this a very good colour to pop on your cheekbones and towards your cheekbones to use as a blusher and highlight all rolled into one. Max Factor have done well with the formula of these blushes as well which are nicely pigmented and also have a really impressive lasting power which keeps you blushin' all day!

On the bronzer side of things, Bourjouis's Chocolate Bronzer and Highlight is a really nice option which you can get easily from Boots. The bronzer isn't too orange toned so won't look too orange on the skin and although the highlight shade isn't the most pigmented, it still adds a more subtle sheen to your cheek bones.

Another blush option that is a bit of a cult blogger favourite is the Sleek Rose Gold Blush. This blush is a pretty intense rose gold shade which like the Max Factor blush, has a lovely golden highlight running through it although in a slightly stronger way. One thing to be careful with this particular blush is it's pretty easy to go a bit overboard with this and end up looking a little too blushing and embarrassed..

Back to the bronzers with another favourite of mine from Soap and Glory, their Solar Powder Glow Bronzer. Housed in some pretty fab classic S&G packaging, this bronzer has a lighter and darker shade with a little but not too much shimmer. This is a great product if you you're not on for the contouring and jus8 want to give you're face a bit more warmth so you can just sweep a bit all over on a big fluffy brush. No Kim K style contouring here thanks..
