Using and Loving Bronzer
Here are some tips to get the most out of your bronzer:
• Don't use the brush that comes packaged with the bronzer. Use a special bronzer brush or a fluffy brush that isn't densely packed with bristles.
• Use a light hand when applying bronzer, you can always build up color.
• If you use a tanner on your face, you probably don't need a bronzer as well.
Only apply bronzer where the sun would naturally hit your face. Generally, this would include the top of your nose and cheeks, but I also like to put a touch on my chin and forehead. I also like to pair my bronzer with blush just to give a bit of extra color to my face. If you're going to add blush, pick a pink or coral shade, such as Nars Orgasm, Tarte's Glisten, or Clinique's Iced Lotus. As an additional tip, if your bronzer has shimmer in it, don't use a blush with shimmer in it.
When pairing makeup with bronzer, don't be afraid to use color! Bronzer pairs wonderfully with jewel and tropical tones, such as turquoise, violets, and emerald greens. Summer style is all about color, so don't be afraid to embrace a new shade.
