Bronzers are one of the most misused products and it can be a little bit daunting to pick and wear a Bronzer without turning into a tangerine. Therefore, I have a put together a step-by-step guide with my top tips and my favourite bronzers.
Bronzers are designed to enhance the complexion and boost any tan in the face. Therefore, bronzer should be applied in areas where the sun would naturally hit your face.
How to apply Bronzer
Finding the perfect shade is pretty simple, the richer and warmer tones look better on darker skin. Whilst, the paler skin is more suited to cooler tones. At the bottom are my current bronzers and my wishlist of bronzers.
Always start lightly and build up colour. Start at your temple, taking down the cheekbone and looping it back under the jawline. This will add definition to your face and push it back also adding a natural glow.
Continue to add definition to jaw and hair line by lightly taking the product under the chin and sweeping up towards the ears on both sides. Then start at the centre of forehead lightly down to the temples.
Ensure all bronzed areas are nicely blended and not too dark. Keep blending if in doubt.
Gently apply a sweep of bronzer down the nose for the perfect sunkissed look. Ensure that this is very light to keep a natural look.
Now you should be perfectly bronzed!
