Benefit Dew The Hoola Liquid Matte Bronzer

Benefit Dew The Hoola Liquid Bronzer. Benefit Cosmetics

 This liquid bronzer is one of my favorite products to use and a staple in my professional makeup artists kit. I love the fact that it's liquid, smells divine, and adds the perfect amount of glow and warmth to any skin tone. During the colder, winter months, we all crave a little sunshine and this is the perfect compliment for sun deprived skin. If you want, apply it as a contour on the face on the forehead, cheeks, and jawline, or as a light finishing bronzer all over the face on top of foundation. Add some cream blush on the cheeks to keep the dewy vibes alive and instantly feel and look like you've been on vacation.
