No wonder, most women feel more confident and attractive, when having beautiful sun-kissed skin. Although the sun gives the skin a beautiful, shimmering color, it’s also one of the biggest enemies of our skin, since it may damage the skin with its harmful rays and cause premature aging. Therefore, instead of lying in the sun, using some tanned/ bronze skin makeup tips is the safest way of getting a natural looking tan easily at home. To this end, bronzer is the product you’ll need, as well as a few makeup tips on how to apply bronzer right.
The first and most important tip for applying bronzer correctly is not to use it on your entire face, especially if you have an oily skin. This, in particular, makes the skin shine in summer to the influence of humidity and high temperature. In this case, a powder comes to rescue, as it sticks to the face and mattifies it. However, the result can be smudging too. To prevent this, use a cream or a gel containing bronzer, which usually suits most skin types.
As you have picked the perfect bronzer for you, make sure to apply it with the help of a large brush with thick hair. Since bronzing powder tends to leave stains on the skin, never apply it with a blush or ordinary powder brush, as the result will not be uniform. To make your skin look naturally tanned, apply the bronzer on the areas of your face, which would normally get tanned, if you were in the sun. Don’t overuse the color not to look like wearing a fake mask on your face.
After you are done contouring your face with the bronzer, don’t forget to apply a blush in a natural pink hue. If you skip this step, your face is likely to look tired and older than it actually is. While bronzed complexion is radiant and fresh, if you don’t apply a delicate pink blush, your face may look kind of dull and grayed. You may pick lovely coral, rose or pink tones, when it comes to the blush, depending on your preferences, the occasion and your skin tone (See: How to Apply Blush Correctly).
If you apply bronzer in the morning, never try to refresh your makeup by applying new layers of bronzer later during the day. Instead of this, use blotting papers to remove the excess of makeup from your face and look fresh-faced the entire day!
Generally, when dealing with makeup in summer, don’t forget about the basic summer makeup tips to know the secret of how to apply makeup well!
