Two-in-one blush and bronzer to brighten and warm the complexion
The best choice to make the complexion always bright, warm and intense is represented by a two-in-one product that combines the blush and the bronzer. The first has the function of coloring the cheeks making them colorful and healthy, while the second sculpts the face creating beautiful plays of shadows and lights for a sun-kissed effect. This way, you won’t have any problems with your undertone when your skin starts to turn golden with the first sun exposure.
The cream version is the best choice for the summer period, as it is lighter, buildable and easier to apply directly with the fingers, without the brush … But it is no less pigmented for this! However, the drafting must take place in a fluid way, tapping in the points that you want to highlight. If you don’t blend carefully, you risk creating absolutely unsightly stains.
Eyebrow fixing products? The turning point for your make up!

There are so many textures and formulations available, but the real gem is the fixing power that allows you to keep them firm and flawless for hours, making them travel-proof!
