perfect bronzer

bronzersFeeling pale and blah from the winter? Warm up with some bronzer in preparation for SPRING! Our Fave Bronzers below: Try Too Faced Cosmetics Sweethearts in Peach Beach (A) to give a sheer shimmering glow to even the fairest of them all. MAI COUTURE smartly has bronzers in convenient purse-ready powder papers (B), For those of us with larger pores try Too Faced Bronzed & Poreless (C) for bronzer that masks imperfections with a little color and an effect similar to a soft focus lens! Love your bronzer sans sparkle or shimmer? Too Faced Chocolate Soleil (D) or Milk Chocolate Soleil are completely matte and satisify sweet cravings with the smell of chocolate! Fans of matte shades will also love Diego Dalla Palma UK Tanning cake #99 (E)—which is the best-selling bronzer we have for the most natural kiss of color. Those tired of powders should try Becca Cosmetics – North America Bronzing Skin Perfector(F)–a sheer gel that can be layered for intensity, or Natura Bissé’s Cure Sheer Touch(G)–a firming, moisturizing gel for face and body with bronzer and a touch of DHA for a gradual self-tan! For our tree-hugging beauties, try rms beauty‘s ORGANIC, RAW Buriti bronzer (H)—it’s in a coconut oil base which is nourishing and beneficial for the skin and bonds with it seamlessly for a natural glow. Saving best for last is our current fave–Kevyn Aucoin Celestial Bronzing Veil (I) in Tropical Days (right) and Tropical Nights (left) have a beautiful ombre effect with a highlighting shimmer at the top that gradiates into a gorgeous bronze below. Swirl altogether for a beautiful mid-tone or sweep the bronze tone where you want it, highlighting with the top portion as needed after. And of course, Your bronzer is NOTHING without the perfect brush! Facade Bronze Beauty Brush (J) is big and fluffy –the bristles have a lot of air between them making sheer natural application fool-proof because you will always glaze on just the right amount!

DO NOT TRY TO SCULPT/CONTOUR WITH YOUR BRONZER! Contouring with a contouring powder (Kevyn Aucoin makes one) is best for this because it is not WARM—warm bronzers put under cheekbones can look dirty! Bronzer looks best dusted in a big W accross cheeks and nose where the sun would hit you first! Dust remnants on brush across the hairline and your chin if it is prominent–if you were to go out without sunscreen these are the places you would get pinkest (or tannest) before anything else—Therefor, it is the wisest place to put the most color!

Bronze on, lovelies!
