Bronzing is a great way to add warmth and definition to your face, but it can be tricky to get it right. Thankfully, makeup artist Rae Morris is here to share her top tips for bronzing like a pro.
Choose the Right Shade
The first step to achieving a natural-looking bronze is to choose the right shade for your skin tone. Rae Morris recommends choosing a shade that is no more than two shades darker than your natural skin tone. This will give you a subtle, sun-kissed glow without looking overdone.
Prep Your Skin
Before applying bronzer, it's important to prep your skin properly. Rae Morris suggests starting with a clean, moisturized face. Then, apply a primer to help your makeup go on smoothly and last longer.
Apply in the Right Places
To achieve a natural-looking bronze, it's important to apply the product in the right places. Rae Morris recommends starting at the forehead and working down the cheekbones, then sweeping the brush along the jawline and under the chin. Finally, apply a light dusting of bronzer to the nose and chin.
Blend, Blend, Blend
One of the most important steps in achieving a natural-looking bronze is to blend the product well. Rae Morris suggests using a large, fluffy brush to blend the bronzer into the skin. Make sure to blend out any harsh lines to achieve a seamless, natural look.
Layer for Intensity
If you want a more intense bronzed look, Rae Morris recommends layering the product. Start with a light layer and build up gradually until you achieve the desired intensity.
Finish with Highlighter
To complete the look, Rae Morris suggests finishing with a highlighter. Apply the highlighter to the high points of your face, such as the cheekbones, brow bone, and bridge of the nose. This will give you a luminous, radiant glow.
Bronzing is a great way to add warmth and definition to your face, but it's important to get it right.
