Blusher VS Bronzer


Does anyone else have the dilemma whether to wear blusher or bronzer? I'm talking about on a daily basis and so I personally find it a bit too much to wear both. I like the look of them both individually on me and wanted to share my favorite bronzers and blushers and let you be the judge of what looks the best!


My top bronzers are; Bourjois chocolate bronzer, Mac bronzer in golden and Bobby Brown shimmer brick. I have a love/hate relationship with the Mac and Bourjois ones because I find them quite subtle and it seems to take a lot of work for them to show up on my skin?! I love the Bobbie Brown shimmer brick because it's a bronzer and highlighter in one. It's great to wear on a night out, I can't believe that I dropped it and ruined it though :(.
My top blushers are; Mac Stay Pretty, Body Shop blusher, Benefit Coralista, Sleek nude blush, and Sleek blush in Rose Gold. I think my favorites out of these are Mac Stay Pretty and the sleek nude blush. For me when I wear a blusher I want to look refreshed.

Which do you prefer to wear??
Love Laura xx

  1. I'm always a blusher girl, never really used bronzer - but I should probably experiment with it more.

    1. I was the same, I think blusher can suit every skin tone x

  2. I find that putting a little bit of bronzer on the bottom your cheek bones really helps to define them, i then go ahead and put a blusher on the apple of my cheek and a highlighter at the top. But if you want something which is much more simple then yes, go for just the blusher

  3. I usually use blusher, but some days when I fancy a change I use a bit of both. I only tend to use bronzer alone when I have a tan and I don't use foundation.
    Great post :)

  4. I usually wear blusher, but lately I've been wearing both quite a lot. I hardly ever wear bronzer on it's own as I'm very pale and it just looks wrong lol xxx

  5. I go through phases of which one I wear. Now that it's getting colder, it's mainly blusher. I also find that it's so much easier to find a good blusher than to find a good bronzer. Most bronzers are either too light, too dark, too orange or too glittery.

  8. There are some much loved products in that bunch! I go for both on a daily, but if I had to chose I'd go for bronzer as it gives a lot more dimension and warmth to the face.
