First things first, before we teach you how to properly apply bronzer, we have to define first what is a bronzer and what does it do on our makeup. For those who are beginners in makeup, this is probably one of the things that you should learn to apply or know.


The main purpose of bronzer is to create an illusion that you are tanner than you really are. Some people are quite confused if bronzing and contouring is just the same. It is not. Contouring is more on enhancing your facial features. If you want to achieve a sun kissed glow or tanner look on your features that would be hit by the sun (cheekbones, forehead, bridge of the nose, and chin), then bronzing is the key. Bronzing can also waken up the tired and pale skin. It is very important to choose the right product and color that will definitely match on your face. Bronzer is applied after foundation, concealer and powder.

Shimmer Bronzer and Matte Bronzer


There are tons of bronzing products in the market and bronzers are mainly classified by shimmery and matte bronzers. But honestly speaking the matte bronzers are preferable than shimmery ones; the shimmery bronzers gives a luminous glow but sometimes when you overdo the shimmery ones, you will look like a disco ball, you do not want that right, but the tip there is to apply lightly and avoid applying on the whole face. Matte bronzer gives a more natural tanned makeup look.
