Together with the summer and enjoying swimming in the refreshing sea, comes a desire to show that sensational feeling to the world in the most obvious way – gorgeous tanned skin. Let’s be honest, whether naturally tanned skin or fake look, which is a must for many women, all clothes looks better on dark skin. Even if you have a busy schedule and instead of lying on the beach you’ll spend most of the summer in an office wrapped up in a pile of work, this doesn’t mean you should give up tanned skin. That’s why we have makeup and bronzers can be just what you’re looking for. Let this cosmetic wizard become your true companion that will be with you no matter where you go. It will make you irresistible, but in order to avoid diverse effect and end up with big brown stains on your face, there are a couple of things you should know before getting bronzed.
Choose the right bronzer for your skin tone
Most people tend to make a mistake when choosing the right bronzer for their skin tone because they are misguided by the idea – the darker the better, and the result is catastrophic. The color of selected bronzer should be only one tone darker than your natural skin tone and a color of your hair should also be taken into account. Accordingly, a general rule is that blondes should go for pink while brunettes should pick peach-colored bronzer.
How to apply bronzer
In order to apply bronzer properly, a key element you’ll need is a generous, dense and brittle brush which should be made of natural hair that though is more expensive, is something worth investing in and it’ll help you apply bronzer as easier as possible having nothing but spectacular, natural looking skin as a result. Smaller brushes are certainly not good for this because they leave an unwanted effect of dark marks all over your face. Furthermore, before applying bronzer to your face it is necessary to apply foundation that also needs to match the skin tone. Bronzer should be applied to the cheeks, chin, forehead, and nose using daylight so one doesn’t get carried away and put just the right amount. Make-up artists advise using mat bronzer which looks well on every skin type regardless of age. However, if you have open large pores, you should definitively avoid shimmer bronzers because they will only accentuate them.
