Summer is here. Hopefully you beauties are wearing your sunscreen and keeping your skin healthy. But here is a way to sport color without damaging your skin – bronzer..However, not all bronzers are created equal. Bronzers can add color or be used to highlight or discount features of your face. Rain Cosmetics’ National Makeup Artist has some great tips on how to use bronzer to get the look you want.
To achieve a daytime sun-kissed glow, use a bronzer with a slight shimmer ( like Beach Club Bronzer in Cabana Boy Casanova) and a soft powder brush, apply bronzer to the areas of the face that the sun would naturally touch. This includes the forehead, nose, cheeks, and top of the chin. This gives a subtle looking warmth to the skin.
You can also use bronzer to contour the face. Use a matte bronzer (Rain Cosmetics Beach Club Bronzer in Lifeguard Lover) with a blush or bronzer brush, lightly smooth bronzer on outer corners of the forehead, slightly under the cheekbones, and along the jaw line. Run the brush softly down both sides of the nose as well for a slimming effect.
You can also dust bronzer on your neck and chest area for an even all over glow. A luminizer is also a good choice. For all over body bronzing, consider a gentle self tanner or a moisturizing bronzer like Pacifica Coconut Crushed Pearl Luminizing Body Butter.
