Buying Guide | The Right Way To Use A Bronzer

Bronzers can be quite tricky to work with. The trick is to master the art by learning how to use it to harness its full potential. A bronzer can be your best friend when you feel your face is puffy and needs shape. A simple stroke of a bronzer can uplift your face and bring about a chiselled look. 

Here are some tips to use these best Bronzers effectively:

  • Use a Gentle Stroke

When it comes to using bronzers, use a very light upward stroke in gentle motions. Unlike contouring, bronzers do not need heavy blending. They need to stay on top of the skin in a very light fluttery, gleaming way. 

  • Less is More

Unlike foundations and concealers, bronzers don’t need to be applied heavily. Remember that less is more. Always use just a few strokes on your cheek bones, on your jaw bones and on your nose and Voila! You are now a greek goddess.

  • Finish with Setting Spray

Even the best bronzers tend to fade with time because it is applied lightly and is not blended in like other cosmetic products. Therefore always seal your makeup with a good setting spray so you can lock the look. You may choose a mattifying or a dewy setting spray but using one guarantees your makeup stays in place.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1. Are Bronzers safe for the skin?

Bronzers are absolutely safe on the skin. Choose a good quality product that is dermatologically certified and make sure that you do a patch test before using it on your face.

2. What is the difference between Bronzers and Contours?

A contour recreates the shape of your face by creating indentation around your high points. A bronzer gives you a chiselled look by highlighting your high points and creating a glowy, sun kissed look.

3. What are some other uses of bronzers?

Apart from highlighting your contours and giving you a chiselled goddess look, a bronzer can be applied on your neck, shoulder and on the body for a shimmery glam effect.

4. How do I use the bronzer on the body?

Pick up some bronzer powder on your body brush and apply on your collar bone, neck, shoulder, forearms and legs. This will create a stunning tanned effect with a mild sun kissed glow.

5. What is the alternative to a bronzer?

If you do not have a bronzer, use a shimmery brown shade that is one tone darker than your skin shade from your eyeshadow palette. Stroke upwards on your cheek and jaw bones.
