How To: Put on Bronzer
Step 1: Before we begin to put on the bronzer you need to prep your face for it. First you will apply sunscreen to your face and anywhere where the sun will hit, let it sit for 5 minutes. Afterwards put on your moisturizer on your face, also let it sit for 5 minutes. If you use primer then you should put that on your face as well.
Step 2: After prepping your face add powder or foundation to your face if you wish to hide any unwanted blemishes. If concealer is part of your makeup routine then add that as well.
Step 3: You are now ready to add your bronzer. You are going to take your brush and swirl it in your bronzer, tap off the excess. Start at mid forehead, down to your temple (side of head) to mid cheek where your cheek bone is (like a C). From mid cheek you will bring it back to where your ear is go down your jaw line all the way to your chin, so it's basically like putting a 3 on your face. Repeat to the other side your face.
Step 4: Once you finish putting the bronzer on your face take a little bit more bronzer and swipe it down your nose and a bit on your chin. Don't forget to add some bronzer on your neck otherwise you will have a different color,and voila! you are finished. If you want to add blush to your face go ahead and do that by smiling in the mirror and apply blush on the apples of your cheeks.
The purpose for bronzer is to give your face a nice healthy glow and to add definition on your face so it wont look flat, not change your entire skin color like the cast of Jersey Shore. That is why we put the bronzer in a number 3 motion because it only adds bronzer on the places where the ligth hits. Now you know how to properly apply bronzer, once you get the hang of it you will end up looking more like Kim Kardashian and nothing like Snooki.
