Question
Laguna or Casina for Asian Honey beige skin color?
Laguna or Casina for Asian Honey beige skin color? I've read most of the reviews for medium skinned and I've noticed most medium skinned people picked Laguna, and a couple for casino. My skin color is more of a honey beige. I don't want my bronzer to look to light on my skin, I plan on mixing blush and bronzer at the same time.

Neither. I'm half asian and have yellow undertones as well. Laguna doesn't show up on me and casino looks red and muddy. try guerlain. better consistency and better color range for gals with yellow undertones. ;)

It's a tough question because Laguna is a much prettier color but has poor color pay off. Casino has better color pay off but looks more on the orange side... so it's your pick.

i use laguna because i have light skin, maybe an nc20 if i had to guess (don't use mac foundations anymore and when i did i was using tanning beds *cringes* so i'm not sure of my shade). if i were you i would go for casino! i think someone at sephora even told me casino is for darker skin tones and laguna is for lighter skin tones. i'd be worried about laguna not really showing up, unless you realllllly layered it.

Because this is so highly pigmented I would use a dual fiber brush. If you are near a target, sonia kasnuk has two sizes of dual fiber brushes that are nice enough for the price. That kind of brush gives the lightest application. I use the larger size for blending any tan lines I might have if I am going to wear a low cut or strapless top. The smaller size I use for highlighting, but you could also use for bronzing on your face. Just touch your brush to the bronzer once! Its really enough! Very pigmented. If you are going all over, I would apply with the dual fiber brush, and then blend further with a kabuki brush.

I just tap it in the bronzer and apply it a bit under my cheekbones with a big fluffy brush then take whatevers left and apply that on my forehead, nose, jawline etc. For a natural glow and I have very fair skin so it works well

answer 5
The best way to apply a bronzer is to use an angled coutour blush and a light hand. Just get a tiny bit on the brush and slowly work it in. The best way to acheive a look is to build on the color until you get the desired effect. And also use a light hand. Be sure when you apply you also sweep going away from your inner face fanning it towards the outside of your face.

answer 6
Use a fluffly brush if you want an all-over glow and lightly deposit some product onto the brush. Use a light hand when applying it to your face.
If you want to contour your best bet is to use an angled brush. Take the angled brush and apply product to it. The suck in your cheeks and lightly apply the powder to wear your cheeks go hollow. Also bring the product up to your temples. Then take a clean brush and blend it into the skin.

bronzer does not typically cover redness. you should try a tinted moisturizer or a primer with green undertones.

answer 3
No. Bronzer is just meant to give colour, not cover anything. Furthur more, Bronzer is best if its not worn all over the face as it can look fake. It is typically worn starting at the temples, brought along the cheek bone and then down to the jaw line in a big 3 shape.
You either need to start looking into your skincare for a product to help with redness, or get a good foundation/liquid moisturizer. Try Bare essentuals or make up forever face and body.

Hi, i'm not really sure if it can totally cover redness. When the makeup artist at sephora tried this on me as an overall bronzing powder, I found that it covered some of the acne scars on my cheeks. I did however use a light coverage foundation beforehand. I suggest dropping by the store and trying it on for yourself or have an SA help you out, even if the laguna doesn't work for you they can help you find a better one suited for your needs

It's a subtle shimmer. And even though it DOES have shimmer, the shimmer looks quite natural, believe it or not. And, you can adjust the shimmer as you wish. I find the you can buff it out fairly well using a kabuki brush. But really, it's such a subtle shimmer that it looks normal on your skin.
