Bronzers are used to give face a shiny glow. While choosing a shade for yourself, always go for a color which is two shades darker than your skin colour. And when you have picked up the best shade as per your skin tone, apply it only sparingly. Never apply too much bronzer else you will end up looking dirty.
“Quick tip: Whenever you purchase a bronzer, look for a bronzer with multiple shades. When it’s pre-blended for you, it comes across more natural as opposed to a one-dimensional shade.”
- Those women who have Fair complexion should use a sheer, slightly rose or peach-colored bronzer.
- Medium to olive complexioned women should use a sheer copper or earth-colored bronzer
- Those women who have drker skin women should use rich, chocolaty-brown bronzers with subtle shimmer
