Celebrity Make Up Artist Tips: Applying Bronzer And Blush

Up until 2 years back, bronzer and blush where relatively new to me . In highschool the only make-up I wore where: powder, clear mascara and some eyeliner. So when my friend introduced me to Rimmel Natural Bronzer (with shimmer) she swore using it along with my usual make up would totally make me go from night to day.... She was so right!

I've recently opted for a more glowy look by using blush instead but choosing between blush or bronzer used to seem like a life altering decision. I want the flushed cheeks, but don't want to give up the warmth and tan bronzer has to offer.

I've read in several articles and on other blogs that using the 2 together is a big no-no. Done the right way you can definitly make both work together. The trick is in using the right brushes and highlighting the right areas.
Below is a a video tutorial by celebrity (a.k.a. Kate Moss and Escada!) make up artist Elke Von Freudenberg.
She gives tips for using bronzer and blush together, the mistakes people make when using bronzer and where to apply.
DONT'S:
-use a powder brush/kabuki brush for applying bronzer. You want to use a blush brush to simply HIGHLIGHT where the sun would hit your face, not get it all over yor face.
-apply it to the middle of your forehead. It will only make it look dirty.

Wandered over here from Honey Brown Sugar. Now that I've discovered beauty blogs I can't seem to get enough!

You mentioned on that blog in an old comment that "I used to use concealer for dark eye circles but now I just got an eye cream and voila. No make up needed for the eyes." What eye cream is that? Does it help with dark circles? Please tell!

PS - That Rimmel bronzer looks delicious!
