I was lucky enough to get a great tan while I was in Miami last week. However, now that my tan is starting to fade, I've turned to one of my favorite make up products; bronzer. By applying a bit of bronzer to my face, I'm able to keep the "sunny glow" a bit longer. My favorite bronzer is called the Big Bronzer by Cargo.
- Use either a contour brush or a rounded brush to apply just under the cheek bones, then blend upwards onto the cheeks.
-You can also apply bronzer along the temple and top of your forehead to give a sun kissed glow.
-Pick your correct shade. You want something that is just a shade or 2 darker than your skin.
-Bronzers come in both matte and shimmery finishes. Shimmery finishes can give you a nice glow, but can also emphasize pores.
Here's a few tips if you're looking to use bronzer to contour your face:
-Apply diagonally under your cheekbones or parallel to your jawline. This will really make your cheekbones pop.
-Apply on the sides of your nose from the bridge straight down. This will make your nose appear longer and thinner. Blending here is key.
-Apply on your jaw line and and under your chin, which will make your round face look more elongated.
