Where to Apply Bronzer: Specific Areas or All Over

tan skin
Q. Summer is coming and I need to add some color to my pale skin! Where should I apply bronzer for a sun kissed look?

A. Bronzer is a great way to add quick color to your skin. A powder bronzer can be applied to specific areas of the face or it can be lightly dusted all over the face depending on the color bronzer your have chosen to use. Powder bronzer is easy to work with because it is easily blended and there is a wide variety of shades to choose from.

Apply to specific areas
Apply bronzer that is one shade darker than your skin color to areas of the face that get the most sunlight, the nose, the cheeks, the chin and center of the forehead, to mimic a natural sun kissed look. Always blend it well in circular motions with your brush.

Apply all over color
You can also dust bronzer all over your face for an all over tan look. The bronzer color should be one shade darker than your skin color. Blend it well using circular motions. You will need to add some bronzer to your decolletage (neck, chest and shoulders) as well so that your face doesn't look way darker than the rest of you. 

If you feel your bronzer application is too dark, apply a dusting of face powder the matches your skin color to tone down and further blend the bronzer.

Bare Minerals makes some easy to use loose powder mineral bronzer for all over color: Warmth, True, A Little Sun and Faux Tan. You can find them at Ulta, Sephora and the Bare Minerals site for $21.00.
