Not sure how to rock the “fresh off the beach” sun-kissed look all year-round? No Caribbean Queen vacation plans? Don’t fret – it’s never too late (or too early) to be a bronzed beauty with bright, glowing skin all day, every day.
20s: Highlight Darker Skin
Bronzer isn’t only for the fair-skinned. Those with darker skin tones can use it to highlight and define their entire face, especially the cheekbones. Bronzers with more brown tones are more natural-looking and it helps to use a bronzer that is one or two shades darker than your skin. Steer clear of orange shades, which can look dark and cakey at the end of the day.
20s: Contour with Multiple Bronzers
To avoid the “Snooki” Jersey Shore orange “situation,” opt for a tanned look by mixing a matte and shimmer bronzer together. Apply the matte bronzer all over the face in circular motions with a large brush to avoid streaking, and then apply the shimmer just to the cheekbones and other areas you want to highlight. If you want more, mix your bronzer and blush together for a rosy glow.
