Easy Tips on how to use bronzer

Want that convenient faux glow, minus the sun damage? Make bronzers your BFF!

Whether you swear on matte or cream formula, a perfect bronzer should spark your natural warmth and add a sun-kissed glow to your face. Even if you are not a tan fanatic, you’ll surely approve of the virtues of a good bronzer. But hey, this godsend is not just to make your face look chiseled and sharp. There are multiple ways this mighty product adds glam to your look.

But before that, this is how you can pick the right bronzer!

It is all about working with your natural skin tone. Bronzers typically add warmth and dimension to your face, and to make it look natural AF, you’ve got to pick the right product. The key to choosing the right shade is going one or two shades darker than your natural skin tone. Fair skin tone people can pick neutral shades to avoid looking muddy or too bronzed. If you have warm undertones, choose a golden bronzer to get that radiant and healthy-looking glow. However, in the case of cool undertones, you should look for peach hues. Oily skin should go for powdered bronzers to get a mattifying effect but if you have dry skin, aim for liquid or creamy bronzers that’ll deliver a naturally lit glow.

Here are a few tips to use bronzer in versatile ways and create that oh-so-gorgeous look in no time!

Team your Bronzer with Blush

Let’s be honest: That nude makeup with glowing apples is something we all strive for. You can achieve this look with minimal effort by just teaming your bronzer with a blush, especially if you’re going for the ‘no makeup’ makeup look. Swirl your bronzer over your cheeks to give off the ‘just returned from the beach’ look!

Enhance your Tan

Calling all you off-shoulder, spaghetti strap and tube top-loving mamas! Give your shoulders and back – heck, even your arms – that added glow by mixing your bronzer with your body lotion. This fantastic mix not only complements the bronzer you’ve applied to your face but also adds a healthy glow to your skin. Yes, this works even with your matte bronzer. We’d even suggest going as far as doing the same routine for your legs, too, if you’re flaunting them in a pair of hot shorts or a mini skirt! The right kind of bronzer enunciates your features!

Bronzer for the Eyes

Psst, can we let you in on a secret nugget? A little known fact is that if you use your bronzer as a base for your smokey eye look, it’ll give you the perfect starting point, complementing your skin tone perfectly. After priming your eyelids with an eye firming cream, use your bronzer all over your lids, then apply a darker colour on the outer corners of your eye. Finish off your look by lining your eyes with eyeliner, and smudge it up to get that smokey effect. Ah, not just that, you can also use your bronzer as an everyday eyeshadow. Pick a lightweight bronzer similar to SUGAR Contour De Force Mini Bronzer to create a head-turning look.

Accentuate your Lips

You might be familiar with the age-old trick of using translucent powder to make your lipstick matte. But did you know you can swap the powder with a bronzer? Dab a tiny bit of bronzer in the middle section of your lips and press them together to get a mattifying effect. You’ll instantly see two things – first, you have a new shade of lip colour that goes with your skin tone, and second, you’ll be left with a beautiful ombre effect! Remember, less is more. Start with a light layer and build accordingly.

Step 1: Tap the powder brush in a bronzer and sweep it along your cheekbones and the areas including temples, corner of your nose and jawline. 

Step 2: The key to getting that sculpted look is to blend and then blend more. Create small, gentle circles to diffuse the harsh lines of your bronzer and fade away the product melting into the skin.

Step 3: To avoid overdoing it, tap the brush to remove excess product and apply it with a light hand.
