I love a bit of bronzer in the summer – it just makes you feel like you’re s till on holiday! It looks amazing for a natural glow if it’s applied the right way. Here are my top three bronzer tips to help you and your clients feel that summer sun long into autumn:
Less is more so don’t go over the top!
It’s easier to add more bronzer and build up the glow than it is to take it off once you’ve already applied it! So, add a dab to your bronzing brush and dust off any excess before you get started. It’s also a good idea to wear a cream or peach coloured dressing gown when you are applying bronzer – not only will you protect your clothes from getting covered in bronzer but you are less likely to put too much on because you think you look pale!
Three is the magic number…
It definitely is when it comes to bronzing your face! Imagine drawing a big number three starting from the hairline on your forehead, then to your cheekbone, finishing under your jawline. These are the places where the sun naturally tans you, so it will give you a more naturally bronzed look. Repeat on the other side of your face. Try this with an unloaded brush to get a feel for the right sweeping motion.
Don’t forget your sun-kissed shoulders…
For a more natural bronzed look you’ll want to add a dusting of bronzer along the collar bone and shoulders – basically anywhere you are likely to catch the sun! Be careful to blend with a clean brush if you have to so you don’t get any bronzer collecting in big brown dots on your shoulders! And remember to extend your skin cleansing routine to include your shoulders and collar bone if you extended your bronzing!
