If you're looking for that sun-kissed glow without the benefit of a Caribbean vacation or exposure to harmful UV rays, then bronzers are the perfect solution for you! The purpose of a bronzer is to subtly but effectively darken your complexion. Generally, you’ll want to select a tone just a few shades darker than your normal skin tone that looks warm and appealing on your face – you’ll definitely want to avoid the clownish appearance that going too dark can create! If you have fair skin, choose a honey-colored bronzer; for dark skin, an amber or tawny bronzer is best. If you have a medium complexion, a rose- or gold-colored bronzer is a good choice. Apply with a natural fiber, rounded brush for smooth, even appearance. Bronzers are available in many forms, including powders, creams, liquid and sticks. Moisturizers and foundations can, and in some circumstances should, be used prior to applying a bronzer. Be sure to follow the application directions and recommendations for your chosen product, and for a natural effect, apply the bronzer to the places on your face where the sun would naturally hit.
