How To Apply Bronzer For The Ultimate Summer Glow

Is bronzer a staple in your summer beauty routine? If not, it should be! It can perk up even the pastiest complexions and bring them into the sunny season. And it definitely beats getting your colour from the sun, which can be damaging to your skin. By using this genius product, you can fake your way to a sun-kissed glow with ease and in seconds!

The problem with bronzer, however, is mastering the art of applying it properly. If not, you run the risk of looking like one of the cast of Jersey Shore. In order to get a natural finish, you need to consider:

Your tools Using your fingers is going to result in a patchy look more reminiscent of a bad self-tan job. No, thanks! Instead, use a bronzer brush or beauty sponge to apply it for a flawless finish.

Your skin tone There are different shades of bronzers, with most ranges having a light, medium and dark version. Pick the one that best matches your skin tone (not the one you wish you had!).

Your technique How and where you apply your bronzer matters when it comes to the overall effect. Not sure how to do it? Here are four tips to ensure you look sun-kissed and stunning!

Bronzed beauty

Fake your way to a natural sun-kissed glow this summer by using bronzer. Here are four tips to apply it like a pro for a flawless finish.

TIP #1 Don’t make the mistake of doing bronzer last. It should be done after your foundation, but before you apply blush.

TIP #2 If you have to spend a lot of time blending your product, you’ve used too much. Start with a light dusting and add more only if necessary.

TIP #3 Bronzers should be applied to the parts of the face that the sun would naturally hit, including the temples, nose, cheeks and chin. 

TIP #4 Don’t forget your neck! Otherwise, there will be a stark contrast between your face and the rest of your body. Fail!
