It’s no secret that my fan-dom over IT Cosmetics knows no bounds. One of my favorite products to recently become available (you can find it at Ulta!) is the CC+ Radiance Palette which contains three cheek products – a highlighter, blush and bronzer. It doesn’t sound very exciting, but I promise you, once you put this trio on your face it’ll be firmly planted on your vanity and easily within your reach for your daily makeup application.
(my palette is definitely well used, so to see pics of it new please go here)
You previously may have seen this palette make it’s debut in the IT Cosmetics IT’s All About You! Your 5-Piece Customer Favorites (swatches shown below from that collection). A full review of the palette is also available there. In a nutshell, it’s a trio of color correcting products that each have anti-aging, talc-free powders that enhance and even out the appearance of your natural skin tone.
To apply this palette grab a firm, angled brush like the IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Angled Radiance Brush (shown above, $38.00 at Ulta) and swipe it into the bronzer. This shade is buildable, so always start lightly and work your way up. I sweep this shade at the top of my temple (yes, of my forehead) and sweep it down in the 3 shape. Blend with the same brush. I always suck in my cheeks and apply a little more to the hollows. I work the leftover bronzer at the outer part of my nose.
Next take the IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Wand Ball Brush (shown above, $48.00 at Ulta) and sweep it lightly over the blush shade and work it onto the apples of your cheeks, blending upward. This is also buildable and I like to add 2 coats of this for day. For the highlight shade I just us the same Heavenly Luxe Wand Ball Brush and dust the highlight shade at the top of my cheek bones and then sweep a bit at the center of my nose.
I also used this palette a week ago when I did bridal makeup:
