The cheek trio of dreams...


The cheek trio of dreams may seem like a bit of an exaggeration to some, but to me, its a spot on description for this team of products. I could never get my cheeks just right. They either looked too pale and sculpted or too bronzed and lacking definition, but these products all together create a perfectly bronzed, sculpted and glowing cheek.

The first product in question is the Clarins Splendours Summer Bronzing Compact from last summer. Now this was limited edition, but clarins have released this version this year which is identical just in a different pattern - yay for all of you! This is probably my perfect bronzer. Its warm without being orange, and isn't too dark so that it looks muddy. it gives your skin a warmth and sun-kissed look without ever being too much. I tend to apply this around the outer perimeters of my face and then with whatevers left on the brush, apply all over to give me a subtle amount of colour. You could contour with it too if you fancied, but i prefer a cooler product for that. Which is where the next product comes in...

The Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder is my contour product of choice. A grey toned brown it perfectly mimics a shadow and its finely milled formula means it blends like a dream and can be made to look incredibly natural, or built up to be more defined whilst still looking 'real'. I used to think this was too much for the daytime, as it didn't give me the warmth i wanted, but paired with the Clarins bronzer it's all i could ask for!

The final product which really finishes things off is the Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder in Highlight. This is a sample size which i received in a Space NK goodie bag, and i'm so glad i did! I find it very difficult to find a powder highlighter which i love, but this is definitely my new favourite. It gives you such a radiant glow, leaving your cheeks with a sheen which is incredibly noticeable, but still manages to look natural and akin to a 'lit from within' glow. You need hardly any product to get the desired effect which is great too, as usually i pile on the highlight to combat my usually dull skin. A must have for any highlight fan like me!

Pop on a blush and i'm good to go, i can see this lineup staying put for a long time.
