It’s absolutely known that when we have a tan, the world is a better place. We look healthier, skinnier, and that little white dress suddenly becomes our favorite garment. But exposing our skin to the sun can create a lot of damage: sunburns, spots, wrinkles and so on… We need to try to protect ourselves from the abusive exposure (don’t forget: ALWAYS use sunscreen).
With makeup we have ways to recreate a soft tan just by using a beautiful bronzer. Who doesn’t love a little bit of bronzer?
The idea is not a fake spray tan, but to give ourselves an every day healthy, sun kissed look. And you can use it to contour the face!
These are my choices that are easy to use, blend and carry in our personal (and professional) makeup bag. These are mostly universal options that can be used with different intensities on different skin tones. Have a happy healthy summer! Use SPF and… a bronzer! ☺
5 OF THE BEST EASY TO USE BRONZERS
I discovered this product recently and I absolutely love it. If you still don’t know the Jouer line, you have to try it. It’s fabulous and so easy to use. Great for women on the go and easy every day looks. This bronzer got me at hello! I use it on clients and myself, just by using any angled face brush!
MAC Golden Bronzer
A perfect sun kissed look, with a little shimmer to give us a perfect sun GLOW. A classic! You don’t want too much of this if you are going to be photographed. It’s perfect to apply on top of your cheekbones with a fan brush.
BARE MINERALS Faux Tan
This is a magnificent product, great for “all over face” bronze. It buffs on soft and smooth to give any complexion an even, natural-looking warmth. Not so great to carry on your purse…it’s not a compact! I recommend using a big face powder brush with it.
One of the easiest bronzers to carry in your purse, and give yourself the look of healthy, glowing, tanned skin. It also has a little bit of gold shimmer in it, so a little bit goes a long way. Use it with just a simple blush brush and you’ll see the magic!
CHANEL Soleil Tan
A makeup artist favorite to contour. Once you try it, you’ll never let this go. Just take product from the pot with any contour brush and dab a little bit in your hand to remove the excess of product and it’s ready to apply. You will LOVE IT!
