Pro Pick: Rice Powder Perfection with Ere Perez

Pro Pick: Rice Powder Perfection with Ere Perez

Bronzer and blush are, without a doubt, two of my beauty kit faves! And when it comes to choosing beautiful, vegan, eco friendly powders that perform, I can’t go past Ere Perez’s range of Pure Rice Powders. Good for the planet AND good for me - the choice is black and white!

 

So we know rice is good in sushi, but why is it good in these sleek, colour powder-filled compacts?

Well you probably didn’t know this, but rice can actually absorb impurities from your skin as well as soaking up excess oil. This means you can get a gorgeous shine free finish regardless of your skin type, without being dried out and clogged up.

 

The non-GMO rice particles are super fine which not only allows for a smooth application and silky texture, but it also allows the skin to BREATHE, which is oh-so-important for keeping the complexion at its healthy glowing best.

 

Why do we use bronzer and blush?

We all want that healthy, glowing complexion I mentioned above, right? Well, bronzer and blush takes this to the next level, by adding just the right amount of colour and life to your face. Especially in winter when the skin can become a little dull and washed out! In addition to adding colour, it’s also a brilliant way to sculpt the face and accentuate the cheekbones with minimum fuss.

 

So how do we achieve blush and bronzing perfection?

First of all we need to select the right tones for our skin. Ere Perez has a gorgeous range of four Pure Rice Powder blushes and bronzers to choose from. Each compact contains a duo of complementary hues, so you can achieve the perfect colour.


 Pure Rice Powder Bronze Tones - this bronzer gives the perfect golden highlight with slightly shimmery bronze tones. Great for a sun-kissed look!
 Pure Rice Powder My Blush - the warm terracotta shades in this universal blush suit all skin tones and gives a silky matte finish to the skin.
 Pure Rice Powder Rose Tones - this duo combines terracotta with some subtle pink hues for a beautiful natural, matte blush.
 Pure Rice Powder Bondi Blush - this gorgeous coral/peach blush duo is perfect for pink-cheeked perfection with a slight shimmer.

 

    The next step is all about APPLICATION! Follow these steps for rice powder blush and bronzer perfection every time:


    1. Firstly, you need the correct tool for the trade. Ere Perez’s Eco Vegan Powder Brush will make your job so much easier with its full, round and ultra soft bristles that allow you to evenly distribute the powder for a flawless finish.
    2. With your powder brush in hand, it’s time to hit the bronze. Swirl the brush over both sides of the Bronze Tones duo and tap lightly to remove excess powder. Apply bronzer lightly under the cheekbones for contour. For a natural look, sweep lightly in a diagonal action up and out towards the temples.
    3. For some extra golden glow, I also like to add a light dusting across the forehead and on the nose and chin. And if you’re feeling a little pasty don’t forget you can add some beautiful bronze to the neck and décolletage too!
    4. Next, it’s time to turn up the blush and this is all about those juicy apples of the cheeks. Once you’ve selected the shade that’s right for you (I love Bondi Blush for a girly glow), swirl your powder brush over both tones and apply a light sweeping to the apples of the cheeks (or just the very top of the cheekbones) for a natural flush.

     

      HOT TIP: Don’t forget you can build layers with your rice powders, so don’t go too hard too fast. Start off light and gradually build up colour depending on the look you’re trying to achieve. Generally speaking, you want to keep it light for daytime wear, but don’t be afraid to layer it up for a more dramatic night time effect.

      Tip Profesional: Bronceador y Rubores a base de Arroz Ere Perez

      El bronceador y el rubor son sin duda dos de mis productos favoritos, y cuando se trata de elegir productos veganos, amigables con el medio ambiente, hermosos y que tengan un buen desempeño, no puedo pasar por alto la línea de Bronceador y Rubores Ere Perez. ¡Son buenos para el planeta y buenos para mí, la elección es simple y sencilla!

       

      Todos sabemos que el arroz en el sushi es bueno, pero ahora te diremos por qué también es bueno agregar arroz al rubor:

      Es probable que no lo sepas, pero el arroz puede absorber impurezas y exceso de grasa en tu piel. Esto significa que puedes tener una piel sin brillo sin importar el tipo de piel que tengas sin que se reseque y sin tapar los poros.

       

      Las partículas de arroz libres de OGM (Organismos Genéticamente Modificados), son súper finas, lo cual no sólo permite una suave aplicación y una textura de seda sino también permite a la piel respirar, eso es muy importante para mantener la complexión de la piel lo mejor posible.

       

      ¿Por qué es bueno utilizar Bronceador y Rubor?

      Todos queremos tener una piel sana y resplandeciente, ¿verdad? Bueno, el bronceador y rubor lleva esto al siguiente nivel, añadiendo la cantidad justa de color y vida a tu rostro. Sobre todo, en invierno cuando la piel puede llegar a ser un poco aburrida y sin vida. Además de añadir color al rostro, también es una manera brillante de esculpirlo y acentuar los pómulos con el mínimo esfuerzo.

       

      ¿Cómo logras tener un rubor y bronceado perfecto?

      Primero que todo, debes elegir el tono correcto para tu piel. Ere Perez tiene una magnífica gama de cuatro Rubores y Bronceador, cada uno de los cuatro tonos tiene un dúo de color para que puedas lograr el color deseado.

       

      ◦ Bronceador y Rubor a base de Arroz Bronze – Este bronceador te da un tono dorado perfecto con un toque de ligeros reflejos color bronce. ¡Perfecto para un look bronceado natural!
      ◦ Rubor a base de Arroz My Blush – Los cálidos tonos terracota en este rubor con tono universal le van bien a cualquier tono de piel y le da un acabado mate sedoso a la piel.
      ◦ Rubor a base de Arroz Rose Tones – Este dúo combina el color terracota con un tono rosado discreto para un hermoso acabado mate natural.
      ◦ Rubor a base de Arroz Bondi Blush – Este hermoso dúo coral/durazno es perfecto para unas hermosas mejillas en tono coral con un toque de brillo.

       

        El siguiente paso es la aplicación. Sigue estos pasos para tener un bronceador y rubor perfectos:


        1. Primero, necesitas la herramienta correcta. La Brocha Eco Vegana para Rubor y Bronceador Ere Perez hará el trabajo más fácil con sus abundantes cerdas redondas, ultra suaves, las cuales permiten distribuir de manera uniforme el rubor para un acabado impecable.
        2. Desliza la brocha sobre ambos tonos del Bronceador y Rubor a base de Arroz Bronze y sacúdela suavemente para retirar el exceso de polvo. Aplica bajo el hueso de tus mejillas para contornear. Para un look natural desliza suavemente en diagonal hacia arriba con dirección a las sienes.
        3. Para un brillo dorado adicional puedes agregar un poco de bronceador en tu frente, nariz y mentón. Si sientes que te falta color, no olvides que puedes agregar un hermoso tono bronceado a tu cuello y escote.
        4. Ahora, es tiempo de aplicar un poco de color a tus mejillas. Una vez que hayas elegido el tono adecuado (a mí me encanta el Bondi Blush para un resplandor femenino), desliza la brocha sobre ambos tonos y aplica en la parte más alta de tus mejillas para un rubor natural.

         

          Tip profesional: no olvides que puedes construir el color en capas con el bronceador y los rubores, así que no apliques tanto color de inmediato, empieza poco a poco a construir el color de menos a más dependiendo el look que desees lograr. Por lo general, un tono más suave para el día, pero no tengas miedo de agregar más capas para un acabado más intenso para la noche.
