meet your new makeup bag essential. this pot from le metier de beaute houses the most irresistible lipstick and blush combination. with fair (and admittedly aging) skin that is always in need of a touch of radiant color, this gorgeous cream-based tint is like a gift from the heavens. the buildable formula is sheer and versatile, going on soft and settling into a natural finish that’s fresh and easy. poppy is a medium bright pink with a hint of pearly shimmer that adds the right amount of pop to my minimal makeup routine. it is a cinch to smudge on to cheek apples and to pat onto lips for a coordinating look that’s just a bit beyond your natural shade. if you’re into monochromatic makeup or you’re looking for a two-in-one solution, i’m thinking this is a must. you’ll get a pretty flush that’s not too shiny from a hardworking product that’s worth its weight in gold.

we are finally feeling the heat in dc this week and my mind is all-a-wander with how to get an early summer glow. a blush-bronzer duo is an absolute must and i lust this $65 version from le metier de beaute. it’s half soft pink, half tawny bronzer and all sorts of gorgeous. there’s something about being able to use one product individually as blush and bronze or blend both sides together to give the illusion of a day in the sunshine that tickles my fancy.
if $65 still seems like a stretch even with all of those multitasking qualities, topshop has just released their sandstorm collection with a beautiful marbleized cheek duo front and center. desert sun is the perfect bronze pink, almost an exact duplicate of the le metier at just $24.50.
with two perfect options for sunny skin, whatever your budget, i see a youthful glowing complexion in your spring forecast!
