5 Tips For Using Bronzer To Make Your Summer Glow Last

(photo taken at Miami Swim 2013)

I love having a summer glow, but when the summer days start to fade away, so does your glow. Why not prolong your sun-kissed skin with a little bronzer? Don’t say goodbye to your summer glow just yet, you can continue it into early fall with a little help from bronzer. Here are 5 easy tips on how to use bronzer to create a good glow.

Step 1: Pick your favorite bronzer

One that’s not too dark is usually best, 1-2 shades darker than your skin colour is usually good.

Step 2: Choose a foundation

If you wear foundation under bronzer, you might want to switch to a slightly darker shade than what you normally use without bronzer. One shade warmer than your skin tone will make the bronzer look less drastic.

Step 3: Get the perfect brush

It’s always good to have a great brush while applying bronzer. A larger one with more bristles that are packed tightly together will allow you to get a more even colour.

Step 4: Apply the bronzer

A friend of mine told me a good tip when applying bronzer: Create a number 3 on both sides of your face. Starting at the top of your forehead, along to your cheeks and sweeping across your jawline. This will highlight areas that naturally catch the sun.

Step 5: Shimmer

If you want to go a little step further for a special occasion or an evening out, we love the idea of using shimmer. Use a shimmer bronzer underneath your cheekbones and along the top of your nose. It will bring out a lovely glow that will make you sparkle.

Some of you over at Free People should try the no poo hair sytem, or at least do a blog post about it. It’s super natural, and is supposed to be amazing! It would be great to spread the idea, because there are so many misconceptions about it.

I have read so many content on the topic of the blogger lovers
but this paragraph is actually a pleasant paragraph, keep it up.

I comment each time I appreciate a article on a website or I have something
to add to the conversation. It is triggered by the passion displayed in the article I
read. And after this post How To Make Your Summer Tan Last.
I was actually excited enough to drop a thought :) I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you
tend not to mind. Could it be just me or do a few of these responses come across as if they are coming from brain dead people?
:-P And, if you are writing on additional sites, I would like to keep up with you.
Could you make a list every one of your shared pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed,
or linkedin profile?
