Glam Tip: Go for the Bronze

If choosing the right bronzer seems like child’s play (“Will this make me look tan?  Oo it comes darker? OK done”), than applying it must be a no-brainer (“I wonder if there’s a way to dunk my whole face?”).  You’re absolutely correct – assuming, of course, you work in a chocolate factory and often find yourself teaching naughty children their lesson via rhyming songs.  If that’s not the case, then here’s how to get a natural looking, sun-kissed glow:
-
1. Choose a bronzer that’s a shade lighter than you would normally (you want to be able layer it over certain parts of your face).   Avoid anything glittery, which appears too fake – especially for every day.  Instead, look for one that’s luminizing.  We like Benefit’s One Hot Minute; the rosy gold shade is universally flattering (EVERYONE looks amazing in it)
-
2. Then grab a big fluffy brush with a rounded edge, like Bobbi Brown’s Bronzer brush
-
3. Before you even go near the bronzer, dust a translucent powder like Tom Ford’s Translucent Finishing Powder lightly all over your face.  This will give a nice base and absorb oil, which can cause bronzer to streak.
-
4, Coat your brush evenly with bronzer and tap off any excess
-
5. Apply by evenly sweeping your brush where the sun naturally hits your face: across your forehead and down your nose.  Then, sweep it in a backwards curve over the apples of your cheeks (where you can then layer the bronzer if needed).  You can also brush lightly across your brow bone – it’s great way to highlight your eyes, and makes you look especially sun-kissed!
