Make-up: The Balm Betty Lou Manizer Bronzer

First off, excuse my MASSIVE forehead. Or more accurately my fivehead. I was having a bad hair day that could only be solved by scraping it up with a headband. Moving on...

This bronzer's lovely shimmery colour is really helping me adjust to the horrible cold dark days we are having at the moment. I never thought I'd like a bronzer that has a shimmer to it, I'm always drawn towards matte products. Until now it seems. The beautiful gold shades give a lovely flush to the cheeks, I wear it during the day but it would certainly look lovely for an evening out as well. 

Because it has a shimmer to it, I don't use these bronzer to contour as I would end up looking like a glitter ball. I use it as I would a blusher with a large blusher brush and put it on the apples of my cheeks. I then blend it toward my temples more than I would a blusher - if that makes sense. I finally use a large fluffy powder blush to blend it out and make sure it doesn't look too harsh. This product is amazingly pigmented so it is easy to be a little heavy handed with it. You just a need a little for a lovely glow. 

I must say I'm pretty impressed with this bronzer, for £17.99 it is slightly on the pricey side but you get a lot of product for your money. You can buy The Balm Betty Lou Manizer from (link here).

What do you guys think of bronzers with a bit of shimmer? Fab or drab?

  5. I'm a bronzing fiend, and I love using my e.l.f mineral glow (which is matte) to warm up my face in general, then I have a Body Shop baked bronzer which has shimmer in it which I use on my cheeks. I don't do this all the time, but when I'm going for luminous skin, simple eyes and statement lips this combo is perfect. I top it off with the Mary-Lou Manizer as a highlight then I'm good to go! x
