"Tips on How to Apply Bronzer"
Posted on April 19 2015
Hello My Beauties!
Whether you’re going on a date or just going to hang out with some friends, we all have those days when we just want to add a little dimension to our face because we get so tired of looking so blah!
Applying your bronzer incorrectly can make your face look dirty and sometimes even orange! Luckily I’m here to show you some simple steps to correctly apply bronzer.
So first things first, purchasing a bronzer and brush.
Choosing the tone of your bronzer will all depend on how dramatic of a look you’re looking for and your skin tone. In most cases your bronzer should be at least 2 shades darker than your natural skin tone. For example:
Fair Skin: Honey colored bronzer
Medium Skin: Rose-bronzed or gold flecked bronzer
Dark skin: tawny or amber bronzer
When picking a bronzer brush, try to avoid small and stiff brushes because they will give you blotchy results. A good brush would be a wide, rounded top, fluffy brush
Ok! My Beauties! Now the fun part begins!
Now that you’ve chosen a bronzer and brush we will put them to the side for now because first we must apply our foundation and concealer. The reason why we apply our foundation and concealer prior to applying bronzer is because we need create a smooth, blank canvas for our contouring.
Having a blank canvas will make applying bronzer way easier, so grab your brush and bronzer and swirl your brush around evenly around your bronzer and tap the excess into the lid of the container. When it comes to make-up its always easier to apply light even coats to build color or coverage, rather than adding a lot at once, Trust me this is a mistake a lot of beginners always do! With that said, the bronzer should be applied to the areas of the face the sun would naturally hit which are, the forehead, cheekbones, and down along the jawline and lets not forget along the sides of the nose. Make sure to avoid streaks and Finished!
