Sunshine can do wonders for your mood and a light tan can make you
look healthier and slimmer. It can also wake up tired, pasty skin,
brighten your eyes, make lips stand out more, make teeth look whiter, everything seems
to lighten up. It can make your skin look sun-kissed even while it’s
protected with sunscreen. But, as we all know, the sun is harmful for your skin in many ways. Luckily, bronzer offers just about the same benefits as actually getting a tan. A light application gives a natural looking radiant glow to the skin.

What Shade is Right for You?
Select a shade that’s no more than two shades darker than your skin.
Bronzers in general are great for neutralizing a
ruddy complexion. If you’re fair and sunburn easily, pink or peachy bronzers are a fabulous choice. Copper shades complement olive skin tones, while
darker shades are perfect for dark skin. Orange shades can look

Cream or gel based bronzers work best for dry skin. Apply with a finger or a sponge. Blend well into skin or you could end up with a clown face.
Don’t Forget Blush
Bronzer alone can appear dull. For a dewy look, apply cream blush to
the apples of your cheeks. The combination of bronzer and cream blush
is absolutely gorgeous.
General Blush Placement Tip: The trick of blush color placement is to
start at the center of the apple of your cheek so the greatest
concentration of color is central and naturally lessens as you blend
it out, eventually disappearing into your skin tone. Using small
amounts at a time helps you judge how far the color goes.
To apply to the apples of your cheeks, look in the mirror and smile. It’s the lifted round zone of your cheek
area and the center of the apple area is usually level with the tip of
