Bronzer 101

With summer right around the corner it’s time to talk about bronzerBronzer is an awesome summer beauty product that gives you a sexy sun kissed glow. If you aren’t sure how to bring out your inner Bronzed bombshell, here’s a list of some of the basics.

No Snookis Around Here

You want to make sure your bronze isn’t too dark or too strong. To keep from looking like you belong on Jersey Shore, I suggest going to a makeup counter, where professionals will help you pick the right shade. If you are stopping by the drugstore, hold the bronzer up to your face in a mirror. Your bronzer should be only two shades darker than your normal skin tone.

The Right Stuff

You want to make sure you are using the appropriate tools. Search for a Bronzer brush or regular blush brush, these brushes have more bristles which gives you more coverage. Japonesque Pro Bronzer brush  has a unique circular top that helps evenly distribute color.

Application is Key

Now that you’ve got the right shade and the right tools let’s go over how we apply bronzer. Apply to all the spots that the sun hits your face.  These spots are your forehead, nose and cheeks. Create the number “3” on both sides of your face. Start at the top of your forehead and dust it down your cheeks, across your jaw line and then sweep it all the way to your chin. Make sure that your bronzer blends into your neck. Powder-based bronzer is best for normal or oily skin like Betty-Lou Manizer. Cream works best on dry skin. Like Fake Bake Golden Faux Glo Bronzer .

Shimmer, Baby

Matte bronzer always looks best with a smidge of shimmer. Use shimmer underneath your cheekbones and along the bridge of your nose this will create a highlight. If you are trying to be extra hot sweep the shimmer on your chest to enhance your cleavage.

    I know that my mother loves to use bronzer as well. She likes using it the most on vacations when she is in the sun more than usual. I am wondering if there is any benefit to using bronzer in the sun? Does it act like a sunblock or does it attract the sun? I guess it could possibly not do either but just wondering.
