Fabulous, Katie.
I can't decide which I love more, her coat or her hair cut.

Don't worry, I know the curse of the preggo who wanted to cut her hair and I have NO plans for chopping off any locks any time soon. I've spent the last 12 months growing out my hair, literally, with no plans to go short in the near future.

I did have hair this short in college and I know I'll go there again one day. Especially since I now know a thing or two about strategically placed bronzer and am in possession of two different bobbi brown shimmer bricks. It does wonders for finding cheek bones. A must with short hair. Or any length hair for that matter. If you don't already use it RUN to your nearest counter and get you some. You can thank me later.

I'm a complete sucker for the ladies at the counter who upsell me the brush to go with the makeup I buy. They swear it perfects the application and I buy it. Their lines and the brushes.
Sadly, I have two of these face blender brushes, one full size and one travel size.
See, I told you.

You just apply the bronzer to the insides of your cheeks and blend up and down the sides of your face. Just don't use it on the apples of your cheeks like you usually hear to do.
Then swirl the face blender blush into your shimmer brick (I like the bronze for when I have on fake tanner and the pink one for when I don't) and gently dust it in a straight line along the top of your cheek bones. Do NOT use this stuff everywhere, only where you want it to catch the light.
The shimmer brick is pretty awesome on your collar bone as well to help you look like an emaciated 17 year old starlet.


  1. I, too, LOVE BB's bronzer and shimmer brick! Couldnt go a day without it! What tanner do you use on your face? I'm still looking to perfect that! I love Loreal gel for my body, but its way too dark to put on the face!

  2. Confession: I have never owned any BB makeup or brushes. I know, I know, it's a shame! There are so many products from BB that people love and recommend, so I don't know where to start!

  3. I love loreal as well! I really like the gel for my body and the non-tinted lotion for my face. However, this year I haven't been able to find the non-tinted lotion anywhere. All I see are the ones with sparkles in them, yuck for face! I'll let you know if I find a replacement that I like as well because I am almost out and its going to be quite the crisis!

    Sassy-girl, you seriously need a shimmer brick if nothing else. I use all BB or Trish McEvoy and swear by both for different things. As per a friends request, I'm going to do a makeup post sometime soon with all my favorites so stay tuned!


Thanks for joining the conversation!
