The Best Bronzers to #brightenyourday #youcanlooklikethis*!

Feeling pale and dull over winter?
Want to look healthy and sun-kissed?
Answer: Hell yeah.
You need a bronzing powder!

Wayne Chick, our resident makeup artist , says that the most important thing when buying a bronzing powder is to match your colour “ Beware too much orange: you don’t want the Teriyaki look ! Go for a matte bronzing powder for all over the face : a shimmery bronzing powder ( such as Nars) should really only be applied to the cheekbones when you want extra blushing action”.

How to apply: Wayne says the best way to apply it is “ to lightly sweep the bronzer all over your face: You want a subtle, natural look. The best news? If you apply bronzer powder straight onto clean skin it often negates any need for foundation at all as the bronzing powder hides a multitude of sins”.

Wayne’s tip “Let your moisturiser and foundation sink in properly before you apply the bronzing powder as you don’t want it to go blotchy. A light dusting of translucent powder under the bronzer will make sure that the bronzer doesn’t grab and will allow even coverage”

Three of the best bronzing powders are:

Bloom Bronzing powder in Aloha $35 from Bloomcosmetics.com

Bobbi Brown bronzing powder in natural $60 from Bobbi Brown

Nars Bronzing Powder  $55 from meccacosmetica
