Bronzer can be a lifesaver in the winter months. It can be a healthy alternative to real sun in the summer as well. The key to bronzer is to not choose a color that’s too dark. If you have very fair skin then naturally you should use the lightest color bronzer as possible. The darker your skin becomes naturally, the darker the shade you should use. Do not get anything that has too much shimmer to it, as you want the bronzer to look like it’s your real skin. And make sure you do not get a bronzer that has an orange tone to it, because it won’t look good.

Apply it with a fluffy blush brush anywhere on the face that you would naturally get sun–the cheeks, the top of the nose, the top of the forehead, the side of the forehead, and the chin. You know that you have enough on when you start to see the color. And a special tip: the fluffier the brush, the less likely you’ll be to apply too much product.
