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.
