Last Blush: Too Faced’s La Vie En Rose from the Glamour Revolution palette– very shimmery but it’s a lovely shade of pink
Highlighter I love: NARS Cocobana!!! I love it so much~ I use it as a eyelid shimmer too, for a soft, iridescent look.
And I don’t use bronzer 😛

Blush you last wore? – NARS Orgasm
Highlighter you love? – Benefit HighBeam
Is bronzer a must-have? – I’ve never been into the concept. I’m alabaster-level pale (NW5, BB’s Porcelain, etc) with cool undertones and have found bronzer to be just a mess on me, almost always making me look orange. I’m trying to learn to be at ease with my pastiness.

Kris Avatar

I might as well be an albino, I always win the “who is paler?” contest, with any friend that thinks they are fair-skinned. I’m so white I’m nearly translucent, so I try to steer of any opportunities to tan. Weird part? I didn’t used to be like this as a kid, but man, there’s no way I could be as dark as I used to be in the summer now!

Katie Avatar

I know how you feel–I am so pale and actually I really like rocking it. I’ve tried lots of bronzers but always felt that they make me look dirty or orange. I just recently discovered the bronzer holy grail, though! NARS illuminator in Laguna. Just a tiny bit, rub it into your face and amazing!!!! It’s scary actually before you rub it in because it is really dark but then it looks perfect after it’s rubbed in. You should seriously try it out. I love that it’s liquid because it feels like it sinks into my skin rather than sit on top of it like a powder bronzer. I am in love with it and feel that it gives me just the right amount of glow while still looking really natural-even on someone as pale as me! I imagine it would also look amazing on darker skin tones, too.

* Is bronzer a must-have? Noooo way. Not for my one-shade-darker-than-dead pale skin. Bronzer looks ridiculous on me.

Is bronzer a must-have? Never use it myself it just looks fake on me as I am quite fair…the only bronzer I have ever bought never gets used on my face; instead I use it in my um *giggle* cleavage-area to help the girls look nice in the summer LOL

Trish Avatar

[Blush you last wore?] NARS Oasis. It comes up light rose-champagne on my cheeks.

[Highlighter you love?] NARS Illuminator in Copacabana or Super Orgasm.

[Is bronzer a must-have?] Not really but when I get one like NARS Palm Beach multiple or the bronzer in Casino. Both of them bring out the red undertones in my skin and looks fab! I prefer a bronzer in the summer or during the winter months when I’m really missing summer.

Blush: Wet n Wild Mellow Wine (i think it’s called)
Highlighter: as far as for the face, I’ve never used one but I really want to try it.
Bronzer: I’m pretty tan naturally, NC42, so I never really think to use bronzer, unless it’s for contouring my cheekbones. Which I do sometimes, but I usually forget lol.

Lucie Avatar

Blush you last wore? NARS Dolce Vita
Highlighter you love? Benefit’s Girl Meets Pearl
Is bronzer a must-have? For me, yes, because I have been blessed with a naturally slim body and cursed with a naturally chubby face! Contouring really helps bring out dimension in my face, and I use a matte bronzer for that, though I’ve never actually used the bronzer to *bronze* myself.

Mariella Avatar

Highlighter I love: MAC Petticoat MSF or Phloof shadow worn as a highlighter (I’d probably be saying TheBalm Mary Lou Manizer except the store is still OUT of it!)

Highlighter you love? The MAC Wonder Woman Pink Power highlighter
Is bronzer a must-have? YES!!! I look pale and washed out without it. Even just a little bit helps anyone look better!

Michelle Avatar

Blush: Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush in Pink Frosting, set with loose (formerly pressed) pink blush from NYC.
Highlighter: My only highlighter is a tri-colored shimmer powder; I like the pink color over my blush for subtly glowy pink cheeks.
Bronzer: Yes it’s a must-have. It works for defining cheeks and giving my face a “just went to the beach” glow.

Nars Desire
Dior Amber Diamond (picked it up not to long ago and LOVE it to peices – thank you Christine for your recommendation!)

Jamie Avatar

* Blush you last wore? Chanel Joues Contraste Espiegle, a beautiful colour for Summer. I’m so happy it’s not LE. If it were, I would have bought two or three more.
* Highlighter you love? Lancome Eclat Miracle Serum of Light Complexion Illuminator, it gives a soft, non-glittery, natural glow, and you need to use just the tiniest amount. I do want to try the Dior Amber Diamond, though.
* Is bronzer a must-have? It used to be, but I’ve slowly begun to embrace my paler side. I still use it more often than not, but I’ve considerably cut back on how much I use.

Yep! I wear the NYC everyday – sometimes alone, sometimes with blush.

Paige Avatar

Blush you last wore?
Clinique’s Fresh Bloom All Over Colour in Posy

Highlighter you love?
I don’t use any. I don’t want to emphasize my big pores. Plus my face gets shiny and oily easily. No need to add more shimmer too it.

Is bronzer a must-have?
No. I don’t see the use for it (on me) as I tan easily enough.

Blush: Today I’m wearing MAC Pink Cult.
Highlighter: I haven’t tried any yet, but I did order the tokidoki one and should be getting it soon. Can’t wait to try!
Bronzer: I’m pale so I never thought of bronzer as a must have for me and never tried one. I did order one recently. I’ll give it a go and play around with it once I get it.

~Blush you last wore? Benefits Bella Bamba. adore this blush!
~Highlighter you love? hmm i only have one highlighter and thats MAC MSF but it’s too glittery for me. i want to try benefits high beam or MAC cream color base in Pearl
~Is bronzer a must-have? whenever i use bronzer, it makes me look dirty but thats probably because i used dark shades laying around the house (btw i’m NW25-NW30)… anyway i’ve been thinking about getting one but i’m not sure yet.

* Blush you last wore? – Mac Flower Mist Dew beautypowder
* Highlighter you love? – The Body Shop Tinted Glow Enhancer, the most subtle but effective, naturally pearly sheen
* Is bronzer a must-have? – Imo, no. I have very fair skin (like NC05-10) and naturally don’t get much of a tan – which is mainly why bronzed looks don’t suit me that well and wearing bronzer always looks out of place.

Highlighter-don’t have/use one
Is bronzer a must-have? No, I’m very pale and if I need color or to add oomph to my skin, I just use primer with a little rosiness like Benefit That Girl OR use blush. Bronzer tends to give a strange effect on my skin and looks unnatural.

Blush you last wore? — NARS Angelika
Highlighter you love? — Bobbi Brown Platinum Pink shimmer brick, and I also like ELF Shimmering Facial Whip in Lilac Petal
Is bronzer a must-have? — I think it is in the winter when I’m pale, but sometimes I skip it in the summer when I want to have a lighter makeup day.

Blush you last wore? – NYX’s Peach blush.
Highlighter you love? – NARS Copacabana (I love how you can blend this even over powder because it’s cream to powder).
Is bronzer a must-have? – Absolutely. I have dry skin and even if I use a dewy foundation, bronzer helps add some contour back into my face when it’s looking flat.

Blush
Estee Lauder Blush All Day Natural CheekColor in 11 Rose (long discontinued)
It’s a somewhat peachy light rose.

Highlighter
Oh wow. I really don’t like highlighter. I can’t wear it because I have such oily skin.

Bronzer
No. It just makes my pale skin look odd. I don’t like tans anyway. Tans make me look mismatched and uneven.
I find it odd when people use bronzer to contour. Contour powder is to contour, not bronzer. (Contour powder is neutral while bronzer is warm and somewhat orange-y, like the Australian Outback.)

Highlighter you love? MAC MSF Shimpagne or Perfect Topping
Is bronzer a must-have? Not sold on the idea of bronzer completely. I’m pale and it’s difficult to find one that looks natural on me. I guess I could take it or leave it as of now.

Blush I last wore- Mac mighty aphrodite
Highlighters I love- Mac pink power (I use it over everything) also, vanilla pigment
Is bronzer a must have- yes, but since I’m fair skinned, I use it in the summer, otherwise it looks so fake. My new favorite is zosimos botanicals butternut bronzer. It’s amber honey colored and perfect for fair skin. They offer $3 samples!

* Blush you last wore? Benefit Bella Bamba

* Highlighter you love? MAC Refined msf

* Is bronzer a must-have? Not a must-have but I do like using it to contour… it sculpts my round face and makes it look like I actually have cheekbones

K Avatar

Blush you last wore? MAC Fleur Power

Highlighter you love? MAC lustre drops, and By Candlelight msf.

Is bronzer a must-have? No, I never use it. I’m not a fan of looking tan(obvious by my everyday use of SPF100+ sunblock). I think pale, milky skin suits me. But contouring is a must.

Emma Soffia Avatar

Blush you last wore? MAC WonderWoman blush in Amazon Princess.

Highlighter you love? I don’t use it that often but I love MAC’s MSF in Shimpagne.

Is bronzer a must-have? Yes! Either a matte one like NYC Sunny to contour and give your face more depth or for that more shimmery one to give you that healthy glow, I use Tarte Park Ave Princess or Guerlain’s Terracotta in nr.2
