How to apply Bronzers or Bronzing Powders?
You should choose a bronzer that should be appropriate for the skin tone. Like you try too deep color then that can look unnatural and artificial. The texture is your choice like whether you choose a shimmery one or matte textured but if you already have oily skin then stay away from shimmery bronzers during the day time as they make the skin look oilier.
Now, let’s see the step you can use to apply bronzer in your every makeup looks.
Step One: Bronzer is used after the application of the complete base makeup but it should be used before teh blush so that the blush can be properly applied. You can try an angle brush to use the bronzing powder.
Step Two: Take the bronzer on the brush and apply this directly and diagonally on the hollows of the cheekbones. Little bit over the temples and on the sides of the jawline.
Step Three: Now blend everything so that the harsh lines and edges can be diffused. If you think you have applied a bit too much and it looks pretty dark then use a soft powder brush and dip that in some translucent powder. Now try to swipe it over the bronzer and dislodge the too much pigment from the face.
