How to apply bronzer

With the arrival of Spring almost around the corner, we’re simply biding our time before those perfect summer tanning months. We think the solution to our problem is to load up on bronzer… well, not exactly!  Bronzer is the most misused makeup product there is. We’ve all seen the disasters bronzers can create (see below). Sorry Catherine! But if used properly, it will create that sun-kissed look and make you look healthy!

Bronzer is definitely not for everyone. If you are tan, there is really no need for it. If you are exceptionally fair-skinned, it always looks phony and can come off as looking dirty. Remember to purchase your bronzer carefully because more than likely you will have it for life or at least until you drop it and explodes on your bathroom floor!

 

The best bronzer is one that is no more than 1 – 2 shades darker than your skin tone and one that is matte.

 

Do’s and Don’ts:

  • Bronzer should not be applied over the entire face, especially those with oily skin. The product can oxidize over the course of the day and turn up to 2 shades darker.
  • Think of where the sun hits your face and apply to those areas, such as the forehead, top of the cheeks and jawline.
  • Bronzer is a great way to get rid of that white triangle under the chin.girlactik_bronzer_cabo

 

Our favorite bronzer to use is the Girlactik Beauty Matte Bronzer “Cabo”!

 

 

 

 

And we would suggest using a fan brush, like the C310 Large Soft Fan Brush or the Cozzette Contour Stylist Brush S135!
