Bronzer is one of the most loved, but misused beauty products out there.  Women use a lot of it trying to contour themselves into Kim and come out looking more like Kanye.  

Ladies, STOP TRYING TO CHANGE your features. It's all about enhancing  and SUBTLY creating the illusion of  "high cheek bones"

Here’s how to look naturally contoured with bronzer.  

❤ When choosing a bronzer, choose a color no darker than two shades of your natural skin tone.  

To mimic a real tan, use bronzers that are golden brown with a hint of red or orange.

❤ Pressed powders create the most authentic effect, however, stains can look super natural and give the whole face a glow.

If it shimmers, it will shine! Avoid shimmery bronzers at all cost. They will make skin look oily. A real tan doesn’t shimmer.  A faux one shouldn’t either.

šŸ”ŗ Less is more when it comes to bronzer. Swirl a medium-sized blush brush over bronzer and tap it on a napkin to avoid applying too much in one area of the face. 

The best place to apply bronzer is where the sun would naturally hit the face: On the temples, bridge of the nose, the jawline and the tip of the chin.   ***Don’t forget to apply some to the neck to avoid two tone skin. šŸ”ŗ
