Sephora's Temptu Foundation and Nars Bronzer

By Mahlia, age 15, Florida

With winter fast approaching, I was on a constant hunt for the perfect makeup that keeps me from looking absolutely washed out. I walked into Sephora and stumbled upon Temptu Retouch Loose Powder. This makeup comes in a tube with an application-ready brush, and with one push the makeup is released. I love this item because it is easy to apply with little to no mess.

Everyone is looking for the perfect year-around glow, especially in this weather. I hate that pale and pasty look so I went shopping for some amazing mineral bronzer. What I found was the Nars Bronzer / Blush Trio which creates a fresh faced look.

These two products are a sure-fire way to beat winter weather. Nars Bronzer/Blush and Sephora's Temptu Foundation are definitely the tools you need to keep a fresh, glowing face while everyone else looks like Frosty the Snowman this season.

The key is finding the right shade for your skin tone and applying the products correctly. Nars and Sephora are definitely on top when it comes to amazing results. I would definitely recommend them to family members. You can also give one of these products to that one friend who seems to have just about everything. She'll definitely appreciate it.
