Bronzer Makeup

Tired of wearing the same old makeup every time you go for a party? If yes, then why not flabbergast your friends with a tanned look this time! Of course, getting a tanned complexion is quite time consuming. Neither can you afford to spend time on a beach chair wearing tanning lotion, nor do you want to spend a fortune sitting in a tanning salon. Plus, you also want to avoid the harmful effects of the UV rays of the sun. It is for this reason that a bronzer makeup can be an ideal solution for you. A bronzer makeup saves you time and gives you the natural sun-kissed tone without any side effects. However, it is important to know which bronzer is suitable for your skin type and how to apply it to get a sexy manifestation. If you have decided to wear a bronzer makeup for the first time, here are some handy tips for you to consider.

Bronzer Makeup Tips
  • If you have dry skin, a cream bronzer is the best option for you to choose. Cream based bronzer’s keep your skin hydrated while still making it look beautiful. A cream bronzer can also be worn during the winter season when the skin gets naturally dry. You can either use it to highlight a particular feature of your skin, or apply it on your entire face to obtain a sun-kissed effect.
  • For a classic bronze tone, rely on liquid bronzers. These bronzers are translucent in color and get naturally absorbed into the skin. The best way of using a liquid bronzer is to use it along with a good foundation. Just blend the bronzer with your preferred foundation and apply it to your skin. The best advantage of a liquid bronzer is that it helps you to get the right tone you are looking for.
  • If you are using a bronzer makeup for the first time, a powder bronzer can be a good option for you due to its simplicity of application.
  • Choosing the right bronzer color can be a bit tricky. Fashion experts recommend picking a color that is one or two shades darker than your natural skin tone. If you have an olive skin tone, then an orange, amber, or honey toned bronzer will look good on you. If you have darker skin, go for brown, tawny, or cinnamon shades. Golden bronzers best suit people with medium fairness or yellowish skin tones.
  • The final effect of a bronzer depends much on its application technique. Always start with applying the foundation and the powder first.
  • The best way to apply a powder bronzer is by using a long brush. Take the bronzer on the brush and gently stroke your face with it. Concentrate on the cheek bones, chin, bridge of the nose, over the brows, and the forehead.
  • Use a makeup sponge to apply a cream or liquid based bronzer. Blend the makeup well before applying; otherwise, it will leave spots on your face.
  • If you are wearing a deep neck or an off shoulder dress, apply the bronzer on the exposed part of your body as well.  
  • Don’t overdo a bronzer; otherwise it will give you a fake and shabby look.
  • While removing excess bronzer, don't blow on the brush, because if a little moisture reaches the brush, it can lead to streaks.
  • To get a metallic look, wear a copper colored lipstick and eye shadow along with the bronzer.
  • If your skin is too dry, apply a good moisturizer before even applying the base foundation.
