Without wasting your time in a tanning salon or basking in the hot tropical sun, you can get the tanned look with bronzers. The sunless tanning experience could be achieved by simply dabbing some powdered bronzer or rubbing bronzer cream all over your face and exposed parts of your body.
Selecting the right bronzer
Always select a bronzer that matches the natural tone of your skin. While a color that is slightly warmer than the natural tone of your skin will accomplish the necessary tanning trick, it is always advisable to go for bronzer shades that are not more than two times darker than your natural skin tone. Amber, honey and orange bronzer shades are usually best suited for women with olive skin.
Cinnamon shades are appropriate for darker skins. Tawny and brown shades could give the brown complexion a sun-kissed appearance. To give yellow skins the tanned look, brown and gold bronzers could be used. Bronzers with sun protection could protect your skin from sun damage. If you are willing to spend some extra bucks, you can opt for bronzers with added vitamins and antioxidants.
Powder bronzer is just like your normal pressed powder makeup. It is ideal for women with oily skin. Powder bronzer could be your ideal bronzing makeup during the summer months, when the intense heat might make it difficult to wear the cream-based makeup. The procedure of applying powder bronzer is quite simple. Take little bronzer powder on the bristles of a makeup brush. Tapping off the excess powder from the brush, in a circular motion apply the powder on your face, beginning from your forehead, and gradually move downwards, applying the bronzer on the nose, cheeks and under the chin.
Cream bronzer is more suitable for dry skin. Although, you can apply cream based makeup throughout the year if your skin permits, cream bronzers are more appropriate in the cold months. While applying cream bronzers, blend it properly with your fingers or sponge to create an even skin tone.
Apply minimal foundation before using a bronzer. This helps to produce a more natural tanned look after applying the bronzer.
