Being a bronzed goddess is appropriate during every season. You can fake a tan and a glow with bronzer that won’t cost you much. The high-performing formulas work for all skin tones and impart a long-lasting glow. Sunbathing, tanning beds and spray tanning can cause some serious skin issues, but does that mean we’re doomed to be pale and pasty forever. There’s still one safe way to get that golden glow, and it’s in your makeup bag: bronzer.
The key to getting that perfect faux glow is not just having a great bronzer but also knowing how to apply it. There are many misconceptions about bronzers. One should use a bronzer to look healthier and sun-kissed, not bronze. For a believable tan, avoid picking a colour that is more than one shade darker than your natural skin colour. Try a sheer bronzer with peach tones for fair skin. Avoid reds or browns if you’re fair because those shades will make you look orange and dirty.
When applying bronzer, use a big, fluffy brush and tap off excess product. Concentrate most of the colour at your temples and along the cheekbones. Without double-dipping, lightly brush across your nose and chin. Don’t forget to apply and blend bronzer down your neck and a little around your ears.
Bronzers hold a very special place in the makeup-kit. It adds a lovely glow and shine to the face. It makes your skin look youthful and radiant. If applied properly, the bronzing powder can do wonders for your makeup. Bronzers are multi-tasking from contouring the face to giving a glow. Bronzers are favourites of makeup artists.
