CONTOURING
Smashbox Step-by-Step Contouring Trio is a set of three creamy sticks that makes even a contouring newbie achieve a pro-like job. It comes with a cheat sheet and the formula easily glides and blends evenly (no harsh lines!) for the most natural looking contour. We tried this on a bare face and fooled quite a number into thinking we got slimmer (and had a nose job). P2,400, Beauty Bar, Greenbelt 5, 757.5028.

BRONZER
Guerlain My Terracotta Summer limited edition adds a bit of gold shimmer for a natural looking, glowing tan. P4,000, Rustan's Makati, 813.3739.

For a matte finish, The Balm Desert Bronzer is a rosy-brown hue that’s fade-resistant. Beauty Bar, Greenbelt 5, 757.5028.

DUO
Laura Mercier Baked Bronze Blush compact can be used over the cheeks as a blush or over the forehead and jawline as a contour powder. The marbled powder tile blends easily, has a non-dusty formulation, and includes moisturizing and non-oxidizing ingredients. P1,750, Rustan's Makati, 813.3739.

CUSHION BLUSH
Since we love our cushion foundation, we’ve stocked up on this limited edition Kye X Shu Uemura Fresh Cushion Blush, which gives the same dewy glow, blendable application, and long-lasting effect. P1,890, Power Plant Mall, 945.7322. 

COLOR PAN
What we love best about color-blocked face and blush kits like Smashbox Baked Fusion Soft Lights is how they allow us to adjust color intensity and tones with just one compact. This four-shade pan gives the right flush for various day to night looks. P1,650, Beauty Bar, Greenbelt 5, 757.5028.

M.A.C Vibe Tribe Gleamtones Powder creates a warm flush of adjustable color on the cheeks while working as a contour and bronzing palette too. P1,750, Rustan's Makati, 813.3739.

ILLUMINATING
The light-diffusing powder pearls of Guerlain Météorites brighten the face and sculpt naturally. P3,500, Rustan's Makati, 813.3739.

CULT FAVORITE
The best-selling Nars Blush in Orgasm deserves a category of its own, especially now that the shimmery pink coral palette that looks flattering on every skin tone just got supersized. P1,650, Rustan's Makati, 813.3739.
