As summer begins to approach, it is right to dream of having perfectly tanned skin. The natural summer dream aesthetic is a sun-kissed glow that adds definition and makes you feel like you’ve sunbathed luxuriously on a beautiful beach, but no tan is worth the risk of sunburn and overexposure to UV rays. Here are some bronzers in India to give you that perfect sun-kissed glow.
The Best Under-the-Radar Bronzers for Summer 2022
A good bronzer can be used to add definition. It can improve cheekbones, collarbones and jawline. It’s about adding light and shadow, creating shapes and achieving a natural glow lit from within.
How to find the perfect bronzer?
It all comes down to working with your natural skin tone. Most experts recommend going for a bronzer one or two shades darker than your actual skin tone, but it’s also important to know your undertone and whether you’re cool, warm, or neutral. Those with warm undertones can use golden bronzers, while those with cool undertones can choose peach tones. Finding the perfect shade can be tricky if you’re neutral, but pink tones are usually ideal.
A level of consistency is entirely up to you. Powder formulations are often preferred for their mattifying effect on oily skin, while creams and liquid bronzers offer a very natural, glowing look on dry or normal skin.
How to apply bronzer?
Step 1: Dip a makeup brush into the bronzer and sweep it around your cheekbones and around the perimeter of your face, such as your temples and forehead, basically all the places where the sun typically hits. If you like a more sculpted look, run the brush over the edge of your jawline to define it.
Step 2: The trick to getting a natural bronze look is to blend it in, then blend it some more. Blend in small, gentle circles to soften harsh lines and create a seamless finish.
Step 3: To avoid overdoing the bronzer, add warmth to your nose, chin and neck with the product left on your brush.
