Wouldn’t you love it if it could be summer all year round? Well, now it can be – on your face, anyway! Thanks to cosmetics like bronzer, which are designed to help you keep a gorgeous glow even when the sun’s not out, there’s a healthy way to look like you’ve been relaxing on the beach (even if you’ve been spending the last snowy week in an office).
It turns out there’s an art to wearing bronzer in the winter – you want it to look like your skin is naturally tan, not like you’re covering your face in cosmetics (even if that’s actually exactly what you’re doing). So what’s the secret?
Start by selecting a foundation that matches your skin’s winter tone, which may be a shade or two lighter than your summer color. Match your powder bronzer to your foundation by picking one that’s only slightly darker – just enough to suggest a little time under the sun, not three weeks in a tanning booth.
Use a large, soft-bristled brush to apply the bronzer to your cheeks, nose, forehead and chin, and don’t forget to sweep a little over your chest and neck if your décolletage will be exposed. And a touch of pink blush will enhance your look even more!
Just like that, you’ve got a subtle, natural glow that looks healthy and beautiful.
