Hello Sunshine! Sunny days are here which means it’s time for beaches, barbecues, pool parties, weddings….and getting a sun-kissed glow!
When you need a summer glow, just a little bit of bronzer can do wonders for adding warmth to your complexion – without exposing you to the sun’s harmful rays!
Not only can you create a perfect sun-drenched glow with this summer makeup staple, but you can use it to strategically contour too. For a natural-looking golden glow, dust the bronzer where the sun naturally hits your face (nose, forehead and the apples of your cheeks) using a fluffy angled brush.
The best trick is to make a fish face and then apply the bronzer along cheekbones, sweeping upward. Apply any excess on the brush underneath the jaw and along your hairline.
