CARGO Cosmetics The BIG Bronzer

I’m always in the mood to channel my inner J-Lo. Yep, I know, like every other woman on the planet, I’m always looking for a way to re-create the “J-Lo Glow.” Let’s just say the older we get, your skin just starts to lose it’s natural luster. Sigh. I have been a huge fan of highlighters for years. I have also been strategically placing my favorite highlighters of the moment across the bridge of my nose, swept across the tops of my cheekbones and up the temples for too many years to count. I even sometimes put a pearlescent highlighter on my cupids bow just to draw attention to my lips at the perfect spot. I know, it all sounds like trickery! But makeup has always been a way to create an illusion, camouflage our imperfections, highlight our favorite features or just change our looks, if only for the day. It’s like starting with a fresh canvas every day and your makeup is your tool to paint any picture you want. So with that being said, I’m always on the hunt for the greatest highlighters and bronzers. I especially like bronzers with a subtle shimmer, because for me, they are way more versatile. I have been a fan of CARGO Cosmetics for years. From the first time it was used on me while filming an episode of FELICITY (I know I’m dating myself) I became obsessed. I think I may have owned every lipgloss duo they ever made, and their One Base is phenomenal. I have been wanting to try their bronzers for a while now and I recently broke down and finally bought their BIG Bronzer. It had amazing reviews online and when I saw it in person, I knew what all of the fuss was about. It consists of the perfect golden hue and has a slight shimmer to it and did I mention this thing is BIG? Hence the name. The compact itself is enormous compared to other brands. This bronzer will easily last me for years! I also love the texture of this bronzer as it is super light and doesn’t cake or grab color in certain areas of my face like a lot of powder bronzers. It is just the perfect golden glow to make your J-Lo goals a reality! I actually feel like I could be the next “Jenny from the block.” Ok, maybe I won’t go that far, but it’s pretty darn close!
