POTW: Anastasia Beverly Hills Illumina8 Bronzer – Sun Bronzed

For someone with a face as round and flat as mine, the right bronzer is a must-have in order to contour my non existent cheekbones. When I was granted a Anastasia Beverly Hills Pro membership last year, I went on a little spending spree and ended up pleasantly surprised by their Illumina8 Bronzer, which I believe is somewhat of an unsung hero. Anastasia is definitely more known for their brow products, so I was skeptical when I purchased this bronzer. Little did I know that I would continue to use this bronzer all year!

Sun Bronzed is the perfect matte powder bronzer for people with medium skin tones. I call it matte but it does have some extremely subtle sparkle if you look closely at the pan. I think it’s just enough to give you a very pretty glow. I love it because I find shimmery bronzers to look a little cheap on me, but I do want that healthy glow that catches the light ever-so-slightly. It’s not the most pigmented bronzer I’ve ever had but it’s extremely build-able so I can easily go more subtle or more chiseled.
