I told you that I have been playing with some gorgeous Illamasqua makeup – yesterday the Cream Pigment in Hollow – today I’m talking about the Illamasqua Bronzing Duo in Glint & Burnish.

The second I laid eyes on this I knew it was a winner! The two shades – soft luminous peach and golden bronze – work really well together to add warmth, contour and highlight. Here’s a closer look:

The powder is super soft and really finely milled – it feels creamy to the touch. Here’s a quick swatch for you.

I used a fluffy brush and swirled it lightly over the both the shades and then dusted over my cheekbones and temples.
I loved the effect. It added natural-looking subtle warm and a really pretty highlight. There is no orange – yay!! It has a shimmer but it is subtle and flattering – not shimmer overkill. Perfection.

Please excuse the lack of makeup on my eyes and lips, but I thought I’d show how pretty the Illamasqua Bronzing Duo is on its own. I have a tiny bit of the Illamasqua Cream Pigment in Hollow on under my cheekbones to contour – you can read about that HERE.
I am completely over-excited by Illamasqua makeup at the moment! What next?!
Illamasqua Bronzing Duos (also available in Glint and Writhe) cost £26.
