Contouring and bronzing is definitely a hit among the beauty community as of late. The effects one can achieve with this technique ranges from adding dimension, enhancing your cheekbones or slimming the nose, while bronzing adds warmth. Company’s are churning out these products left, right, and center from kits, and palettes, to single products. And now Make Up For Ever has just up-ed the game with the first ever waterproof bronzing and sculpting powder Pro Bronze Fusion.

MakeUpForEver_ProBronzeFusionMakeUpForEver_ProBronzeFusion_WaterproofBronzerHers the low down on this product:

  • A waterproof bronzing and contour product with a hybrid gel to powder texture which is silky to the touch and ensures longevity.
  • Although waterproof its packed with moisturizing properties to ensure silky smooth skin.
  • The texture is smooth, finely milled, and light allowing for an easy blend, and an easy mess free application.
  • You can achieve the most natural bronzed look or the ultimate chiseled cheekbones with this build-able product.
  • Comes in two finishes: A Luminous Mat (perfect for a natural contour) and Softly Iridescent (great from bronzing, highlighting, and creating that perfect JLo Glow!!)

MakeUpForEver_ProBronzeFusion_WaterproofBronzer_closeupMakeUpForEver_ProBronzeFusion_WaterproofBronzer_swatchTHE VERDICT

This new innovative product receives a 5/5.

I love the texture of this product and the way it applies so smoothly and evenly. Its great for both those natural days where you want a light hint of color or for those days you really want to carve out the face. The pigmentation is great, with one stroke you get a beautiful natural application yet it’s easy to build for a more extreme look. Its definitely water and sweat proof and stays put all day long. And the best part is it’s so user friendly.

Keep a look out for this as it will hit stores around the end of April.

Nail Art Inspiration using Nail Stickers & Decals

Its no secret that I’m obsessed with…. I’ve tried their nail decals (check out my review here) and now I’m playing around with their nail art stickers. Just like nail decals, nail stickers are an easy and cost effective way to have super fun nails. I got my hands on a super adorable pair full of candies and sweets.

bornprettystore_nailstickers_sweetsI created this super cute mani by applying 1 coat of white polish followed by a glittery pink polish. I then used the “Sweets” nail sticker set.

bornprettystore_sweets_nailstickersI also thought it would be fun to share this mani I did using the “I Love You” set  (although they are nail decals and not nail stickers)


bornprettystore_iloveyou_nailstickersHow To Apply Nail Art Stickers

1. Apply base coat

2. Apply color or colors of your choice. Let dry completely.

3. When nail polish is super dry peel off sticker of choice using a tweezer and place on desired nail.

4. Apply top coat to seal in design.

The Verdict

These nail stickers get a 5/5 from me.

Although they may not be as thin as nail decals they are still on the thinner side compared to other brands and styles I’ve tried. They lay relatively flat on the nail and last a long time (about a week) before fading. They are so easy to apply, even easier than nail decals as it doesn’t require water. Plus there are so many awesome designs to choose from for less than $1!!! Check out their selection here and I also have a discount code for you guys so use BKYW10 at checkout for 10% off.

Whats your favorite way to incorporate nail art stickers into your designs?
