Like the Becca Halcyon Days Mineral Blushes, the powders in the new Mineral Bronzer/Illuminator Duo in Serrana ($43) look and feel flawless on the skin.
On one side, a warm matte bronze that should sing on light and medium skin tones (and add a whisper of warmth to darker ones); on the other side, a warm peach with a sheen finish. Both showcase finely milled powders that practically blend themselves, making contouring and highlighting with them a breeze. I know it’s a little late in the year to be thinking about winter, but I have a feeling Serrana would have been a fantastic bronzer to wear in the middle of winter, not that it isn’t still a great one now.
Tips from Becca
- Using a powder or bronzer brush, apply it to parts of the face that naturally see some sun, like the sides of the forehead, the temples, brow bones and center of the nose.
- Apply by itself or atop blush.
- For a rosy golden blush, mix the bronzer and illuminator sides together.
Becca was also generous with the pan, which is about the same size as a MAC pressed powder, but $43 for Serrana still sounds like a lot, unless you plan to wear it every day (and most gals probably could). Then, you could call it an investment, and a $43 investment sounds good.
