City Pulse

By Allison Warenik-Queenan

Summer is officially over, but that doesn’t mean you have to lose your summer glow just because the temperature is dropping. And who wants to bother with slathering on self-tanners and liquid bronzers when your body is going under cover? That’s why Physicians Formula is giving one lucky BN reader the chance to win a year’s supply of bronzing powders. Perfect for brushing over your face in the morning to wipe out the winter drab. A little brush on the back of your hands as well makes it look all the more natural. Viola! Who ever accused you of looking a little too pale? In fact, your coworkers may start to think that you are secretly weekending in South Beach.

I am a huge fan of the Powder Palette Mineral Glow Pearls. Aside from looking like candy- seriously, I almost want to eat it – the shimmery effect it leaves behind captures light and creates the illusion of an all out glow. I love using it as a blusher over my cheekbones. Combined with Shimmer Strips on my eyes, an all-in-one bronzer/blush/eye shadow pallet, my God-given too-pasty look is immediate erased without giving off the appearance of wearing too much make-up. The shades are completely natural and blend effortlessly.

For a full on, entire-face bronzed look, Physicians Formula’s Healthy Wear Pressed Bronzer is an amazing product. It contains SPF 50 and is perspiration and water-resistant. This is a fantastic product to use while out jogging or biking or just running errands. It’s paraben free, fragrance free and hypoallergenic, so essentially any skin-type can use it. I also love the Organic wear 100% natural origin bronzer. Free of harsh chemicals and packaged in a gorgeous paper-based compact, complete with mirror, this is a product that is easy on your skin AND that you can be proud to pull out of your purse.

As I mentioned earlier, one lucky BN reader is going to get a chance to try out these and more fantastic bronzing products, including Physicians Formula’s Bronze Booster Loose Bronzing Veil, Talc-Free Mineral Wear Mineral Face Powder and Magic Mosaic Custom Blush. I am a huge fan of all of these products and I know that they are going to boost your beauty look no matter what the season. Submit your name, address and telephone number, as well as your skin tone: fair, light or medium, to contact@beauynewsnyc.com. The winner will be drawn at random from all entries received by this Monday, October 18th. Good luck!
