Want a warm summer complexion without having to sit in the sun? Then you must try a bronzer this summer. With the fear of getting sun burnt and the negative impact UV rays have on your skin, a lot of women are opting for a good bronzer to achieve a natural glow during the summer months. To help guide your search for the perfect bronzer powder that will have your skin glistening, glowing and warm, we have put together a list of tips and products to ensure you never go wrong when applying bronzer.
Tips and Tricks
Choosing a Shade: When choosing a bronzer, it is important to choose a color that is the same complexion or darker than your skin. This can be difficult for darker-skinned women because companies don’t tend to cater to your needs. Ideally you want to make sure that the bronzer shows up on your skin. When searching for a bronzer, be sure to try out many different brands and tones. This will guarantee that you find a product that works best for you.
Application: When applying bronzer to your skin, use a large powder brush that will allow you to evenly distribute product to your skin. The focal areas are your forehead, nose, cheeks and chin. These are the areas that are most affected by the sun during summer months. Try adding bronzer to your neck for an overall golden appearance.
