Diffused Bronze Light
Ambient Lighting Blush
Editor's NotesHourglass' airy blush combines the light-reflecting benefits of its signature Ambient Lighting Powder with bold pigment - the result is a natural-looking flush of color. "Traditional blush can read as flat, and so I was inspired to create something that was far more seamless," says the brand's founder Carisa Janes - brighten your complexion with this soft plum shade. - Free from parabens, talc or fragrance - Buildable coverage - Photoluminescent Technology creates multidimensional color - Also available in Luminous Finish and Radiant Magenta
Why It's SpecialAmbient Lighting Bronzer’s sheer, airy formula sweeps softly onto skin for a healthy-looking, radiant finish. It’s formulated with Photoluminescent Technology, featuring optically transparent particles that transform the look of skin by manipulating and refracting light to emphasize your best features. The optically transparent particles allow for seamless blending and color transitions. The powders, blended by hand using an advanced miscelare technique, offer the perfect balance of pigments in a gorgeous pattern. Use this bronzer alone, or paired with Ambient Lighting Powder for maximum control to create depth and dimension—or even use it for a subtle contouring effect.
What It DoesUnlike traditional blush, which tends to be flat, Ambient Lighting Blush uses Photoluminescent Technology to exhibit depth and dimension. The airy, lightweight powders contain optically transparent particles that amplify the colors to a multidimensional level, effectively reinventing the way you view blush. Its soft-focus technology filters out harsh light to help minimize the look of wrinkles, imperfections and neutralize discoloration.
What It IsAmbient Strobe Lighting Blush combines the luminizing effect of Ambient Strobe Lighting Powder with silky, pigment-rich cheek color. Just a swipe of this radiant highlighting blush instantly brightens and lifts cheeks with a lit-from-within, healthy-looking flush.
What Else You Need to KnowMost bronzers are flat and look unnatural. That’s where the Photoluminescent Technology really lends itself to the Ambient Lighting Bronzer. It's perfect for creating a natural sunkissed glow. I personally love using Luminous Bronze Light for subtle contouring because it blends seamlessly with the Ambient Lighting Powders and blushes."—Carisa Janes, Hourglass Founder Hourglass products are 100 percent cruelty-free.
I can’t live without these blushes! Blush Awards
These three blushes are my holy grails. I can’t live without them! They’re different shades, but all of them can fit in my daily makeup look. Each of them can be my go-to blush. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush – The cutest color Color: Euphoric Fusion – soft lilac blush blended with Euphoric Strobe Light for a resplendent glow Euphoric Fusion is a beautiful blush shade that compliments my fair to light tone skin. The color looks so good on me. I’m not sure if I described the color exactly – natural pink. I love to put it under my eye area, which makes me look a bit drunk. It provides a nice glow that blends into the skin naturally. I also like the package of it, very delicate. Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic Blush – The most natural color Color: Pillow Talk – Nude Pink I bought the pillow talk blush just because I want to match my pillow talk eyeshadow. When I start to use it, I cannot live without it. It matches my skin tone perfectly. The highlighter in the centre also fits the outer color nicely and naturally. I like its formula – buttery smooth, and the powder is so fine. The color is nice and natural that could fit in the minimal makeup look. Nars Blush – The most shimmer Color: Orgasm – Peachy Pink I’ve been wearing this for 6 years and haven’t looked back. It’s definitely one of the most classic blush shades among all of the blushes in the beauty world. It looks great on everyone with every skin tone and is the perfect balance of peach and pink with a hint of shimmer. It blends beautifully and easily. Comparing to the other two blushes I review, this one is the most pigmented without giving your cheek to much color. I don’t need to put a highlighter when I wear this blush. I love the glow it gives to me.

Best Warm Blushes for Fall 🍂
A change in seasons means a change in make up. The bright corals are being pushed to the back of my drawer and making room for the more warm toned ones. I've been showing some blushes in particular a lot of love this Autumn and I really want to share them with you. I'm still so happy I finally own the HOURGLASS - Ambient Lighting Blush in Luminous Flush , although I have this one for a good 3 months now. It gives me the most natural flush of colour and is not too rosy, not too peachy but right in the middle. It goes with every single eye make up look I've done so it's a great all rounder! Another very recent purchase is the #Kiko - Kiko Rebel Bouncy Blush[products]#[FourStars] in 01 Velvety Peach. It's a cream-to-powder blush with a very matte finish - in the way that it doesn't have any shimmer in it - but it still gives a nice and healthy glow because it's a cream product. This one had a dark peach colour, almost has a hint of brown to it which makes it perfect for Autumn. Al oldie but a goodie is the benefit - Rockateur Rose Gold Powder Blush Benefit Sugarbomb Blush. I've always liked this one a lot and recently dug it up from under the pile of blushes I own. This one is again very peachy but it's a lot lighter than the Kiko one and it has quite the amount of shimmer to it. It's a very natural colour though. Next up is CLINIQUE - Cheek Pop Blush in Cola Pop – a long, LONG time favourite of mine, although you wouldn’t know it from the lack of wear on the embossed flower! Cola Pop is the shade that got me into wearing darker blushes because I quickly came to realize it was all in your application. You can wear this lightly if you want, but I tend to be heavy handed with my blush because I actually want to SEE it on my cheeks – none of this “barely there” nonsense thankyouverymuch! The very last shade I have to mention is the MAX FACTOR - Creme Puff Powder Blush in Alluring Rose. I love this one for Autumn because of the brown and orange undertones. It's even close to being a bronzer, but it has too much shimmer in it and still has that rosy tone in it so it's just impossible to serve that purpose. It's so pretty combined with a warm bronzer though, it complements it very well. Sharing is caring. 💕

MINI HOURGLASS HAUL
Picked up some limited edition stuff and restocked my personal hourglass favourites 🥰 HOURGLASS - Ambient Lighting Powder ✨ Shade Dim Light ✨ My go to finishing powder - literally makes my skin looks airbrushed and lit from within. Beautiful colour and beautiful consistency just an all time FAVE. Cannot live without ✨ Got the mini version this time because it’s also in the 6 pan palette HOURGLASS - Confession Refillable Lipstick Duo – Sculpture ✨ First time getting a lip product from Hourglass ✨ This is Limited Edition ✨ The packaging is STUNNING, but I personally wish it was a little heavier. Even though it looks beautiful it actually feels a bit light weight and flimsy? ✨ Two shades - Refillable. “At Dawn” is a beautiful warm rose colour and “At Dusk” is a rich cool red. ✨ I love both colours and the formula is delish! Super creamy and silky, feels lightweight and moisturising on the lips. Amazing pigment (especially the deeper red shade) ✨ I feel like “At Dawn” looks different on the lips than the swatch/ in the tube. On the lips it looks warmer and slightly more peachy but it’s still a lovely colour HOURGLASS - Ambient Lighting Blush ✨ Holiday Limited Shade - Sublime Flush ✨ Really beautiful packaging ✨ This is one of the most stunning blush shades ever - a soft pink infused with lilac. Versatile, pops on a wide range on skin tones, so flattering, subtle glow... I approve HOURGLASS - Limited Edition Ambient Lighting Edit ✨ I mean come on... this palette is gorgeous. It comes with Dim Light ambient finishing powder and the Sublime Flush blush I already said I love + Ambient finishing powder in Diffused Light, a strobe powder in Iridescent, Bronzer in Eternal Bronze Light and another blush in Iridescent Rose. ✨I particularly LOVE the marbled rose blush - Iridescent Rose - It makes your cheeks look so cute and flushed and almost hot to the touch. It deepens up any colour you have on your cheek and it’s just beautiful. ✨ The bronzer is okay, not the best bronzer I’ve used but still a beautiful colour. Not too dark or too light! ✨ This whole compact is amazing on the go, it pretty much has everything you need for adding colour to your complexion. I’m a sucker for hourglass, they really never disappoint... It’s definitely one of my most loved makeup brands out there 💖 Have you tried any of these products?

Most loved Blush in 2020🥰
I am not a complete blush freak. But every time when I am doing a full makeup, it is my mush have product. The overall makeup is incomplete without it. Without a blush, I look pale and dull. The overall complexion is also instantly improved. As I always mention that eye shadow is the protagonist in my mind. Then blush on the other hand, is the kind of supporting role that is unknown but indispensable. Nowadays blushes are coming in such a diversity in textures- Powdery, creamy, liquid. I personally prefer to use powdery. Basically, my the majority of my blush collection are powder blush. The color of the blush is even more diversified from Red, pink, orange, nude, purple, etc. It is important to choose the right color that suits you according to your skin tone and overall makeup look. Blush that is not suitable for you It will ruin the entire makeup. And I do have different choice of options based on my skin condition. I MUST wear blush if I have dullness. This one is my always go option for dull skin.HOURGLASS - Ambient Lighting Blush I love this lightening blush with Glory peachy pink tone. With some flesh color combination of coral and pink. The texture of this powder is very delicate and shiny, the gloss is also very beautiful, it looks unobtrusive. The overall match is very natural. This will always be my favorite and I like how pigmented they are! I have many blushes. This one is more of a peachy with a golden shimmer and it doesn't have anything copper or bronze. This golden shimmer helps to create that shimmery and healthy look to your cheek by adding that extra glow. Sometimes it would be too much by layering blush, highlight and setting powder. This one got it all. On my light-medium warm yellow toned complexion, the color matches the brand description. This is the perfect blush for everyone, specially for beginners or minimalistic people. It's very buildable, and more pigmented than most other blushes I've used.A little goes a long way with this, and I can see it lasting a long time. Highly recommended especially for dull skin!

Glowy natural no makeup look! You need this!
I love a natural makeup look but finding a face product that gives coverage without looking cakey and looking too overdone is difficult. My inspiration for this makeup look is simply a form of habit, I do looks like this all the time. I’m my own inspiration 🙂 I was so happy to get QMS MEDICOSMETICS - Active Glow Tinted Day Cream in my boxycharm this month. It is a tinted moisturizer that gives a subtle sheen but it is not dewy, oily, sticky, anything. I didn’t need to set it at all. I love this product! You need it! Also used my tried and true mascara ILIA - Limitless Lash Mascara I’ve raves about this countless times on my page. It’s simply the best. For blush I used a peachy color HOURGLASS - Ambient Lighting Blush in the shade dim diffusion. This is an absolutely gorgeous blush. So natural looking and gives you a beautiful “flush.” Lastly I used ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - ANASTASIA Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel to set my brow hairs up and make them a little bushier. This gel actually works really well to keep the hairs in place! 💋🤍 #cheriepartner
