How to Choose a Bronzer – Buying Guide

You may have tried using bronzer before but decided it wasn’t for you. Maybe it was too dark, didn’t apply evenly, or you weren’t sure where to dust it on.
We’ve all been there, so let’s go over how to choose a bronzer, what it’s used for, and how it can shape your face.

So What’s the Purpose?

So What’s the Purpose?
Though there are many uses for bronzers, let’s just talk about the big two: giving your face its glow back, and accentuating your bone structure. Knowing this, you can choose the color and type of bronzer you want, depending on how you want to use it.
Depending on how you apply it, the results can be stunningly different.

Gravitate Towards Natural Glow

Gravitate Towards Natural Glow
Foundation can smooth out your face and make you look washed out. At a time like this, lightly swipe some bronzer on your forehead and cheeks to bring your face back to life.
This will give you a healthy and fresh finish. If you have porcelain skin, you might be thinking, “Bronzer’s too dark; it’ll stand out; I’ll look like I’m trying to hard.” But this kind of light dusting looks natural and brings out the glow of the sun in your skin.

Sculpt Your Cheekbones

Sculpt Your Cheekbones
Contouring is a popular way to create dimension, an age old art technique. By outlining your face and adding shadow to the hollows of your cheeks, you’ll look sharp, defined, entrancing. It’s rare that people’s faces are completely symmetrical, so shading in certain parts helps create that illusion.
Applying in the right places will slim your face considerably. Since the flattering effect is easily noticeable, there’s nothing to be lost by using bronzer.

Rich Powders or Smoothing Creams

Rich Powders or Smoothing Creams
The easiest type of bronzer to use is powder. You can control how much you want to put on the brush and how lightly you want to dust it, so it’s recommended for those who want a sheer layer.
Creams meld well with the skin and provide better coverage. Those who’re already familiar with makeup can create dazzling and long-lasting looks with cream. A warning to beginners: it’s a little harder to use than powder and will take time to get used to.

Shimmer in the Sun

Shimmer in the Sun
Some bronzers have a gleam and add extra glow to your face. You can go for heavy glitter, glossiness, and vibrancy, and have your face practically sparkle after you’re done with it. Or, get something more toned down, just to give off the subtle gleam of dew.
While some bronzers can look too shimmery, when swatched, the glow melts away in to the skin for a matte finish. Also, the smaller the specks of glitter are, the quieter the bronzer and the more easily it melds with your skin.
For shading, or contouring, many choose not to use shimmering makeup, opting for a matte finish. Whether or not you want shimmery bronzer is completely up to your preference.

    Let’s get this straight–there’s no such thing as a “best” hair dye. Strictly speaking.

    Top 23 Best Japanese Whitening Serums in 2020 - Tried and True! (Haku, SK-II, and More)
    It’s a buzzword in Japan: translucence. It’s similar to Korea’s glass skin–skin so pure that it’s nearly transparent, resembling layers of frosted glass. In the Western world, think "glow" or "dewy finish." In order to respond to that aesthetic, cosmetic companies–both drugstore and high-end–here have been coming out with scores of whitening serums, essences, and ampoules.As always, it’s difficult to tell what kind of skincare is effective and what isn’t. That’s why, this time around, we ordered the 24 most popular whitening serums from Japan’s e-commerce giants (such as Amazon, Rakuten, and @cosme) and tested them all. We also invited a skincare specialist and had her compare the following:1. Hydration2.

    We don’t know when it started, but Japanese women are known–have been known for a while–for beautiful skin. And walking around Tokyo, you can’t help but think “where’s there’s smoke, there’s fire.” While there’s no one factor that makes one’s skin what it is, we’d hazard a guess and say skincare is important.The Japanese skincare routine has quite a few steps. There’s cleansing; then the first step after cleansing is toning.

    We might not be able to prevent aging altogether, but we can still age gracefully. That feels like the consensus here in Japan, where anti-aging skincare is popular and constantly evolving. As time goes by, our skin undergoes certain changes–hormones are thrown out of balance, certain functions are dulled–and serums that you used once may no longer be as effective.So which serums a) target the signs of aging and b) will actually work for you?
