Beauty 101 - Bronzer

Bronzer is one of the most beloved - and most abused - products. Here's how to do it justice. 

  • Choose a color that's no more than two shades darker than your skin tone. The most natural - looking bronzers mimic a real tan - golden brown without a hint of red or orange. Look for soft, neutral shades with the subtlest light-reflective particels. 
  • Pressed powders create the most authentic effect. Two that wok on most skin tones: Guerlain Terracotta Light Sheer bronzing powder in Blonde and Shiseido Makeup Bronzer in Light 
  • Avoid shimmer. A real tan doesn't sparle; a face one shouldn't, either. Plus, Shimmer can make skin look oily. 
  • Apply judiciously. Swirl a medium-size blush over the bronzer and tap it onto a tissue before applying to avoid an overdose, with a light hand, brush the bronzer where the sun typically hits your face: the temples, the bridge of the nose, the jawline and the tip of your chin. 
  • Keep the rest of your makeup soft and warm: sheer rose or apricot shades for lips and cheeks, shimmery gold or bronze eye shadows, and black or brown mascara.
