Makeup 101: Bronzer

/ 4 comments


Bronzers are essential in the makeup routine, especially for people with fair to light skin! They can be used either on the hollows of your cheeks to make your face look slimmer and more defined or all over the face to achieve that gorgeous sunkissed look, without frying yourself out in the sun and without messing with self tanners! :) I love bronzers! :) They come in several different types:


  • Pressed Powder Bronzer : This is the most popular type of bronzer I guess, because it's so easy to apply and so convinient to carry around, as it comes in a compact! It's suitable for all skintypes, but it's ideal for people with oily and combination skin, because it won't make your skin even more oily! If you have oily skin or if you want to contour choose a matte one, otherwise you will look like a disco ball! If you have normal to dry skin choose a slightly shimmery one to give your skin a nice glow! You can use several different brushes to apply this type of bronzer: for contouring you can use an angled  blush brush and for an all over application you can use either a fluffy powder brush or a kabuki brush!

  • Loose Powder Bronzer : This quite messy type of bronzer comes in a jar with a sifter and due to its loose consistency you have to be very careful when you apply it, otherwise you'll end up with a cloud of loose powder on your clothes, on your counter, everywhere! lol ! It provides a nice, lightweight finish and it's suitable for all skintypes! If you have oily skin or if you want to contour choose a matte one, otherwise you will look like a disco ball! If you have normal to dry skin choose a slightly shimmery one to give your skin a nice glow! You can use several different brushes to apply this type of bronzer: for contouring you can use an angled  blush brush and for an all over application you can use either a fluffy powder brush or a kabuki brush!

  • Cream Bronzer : This type of bronzer usually comes in a jar and it's ideal for people with dry skin, especially during the cold winter months, because it's moisturizing and it doesn't make the skin look flaky and even more dry than it already is! It's also great if you want to achieve that glowy look! People with oily skin should avoid cream bronzers, because they will feel heavy! You can apply cream bronzers with an angled blush brush for contouring or in 3 different ways all over the face: a sponge, your fingers or a stippling brush! Whatever method you choose, make sure to blend it into your skin well ! ;)


  • Mousse Bronzer : This type of bronzer usually comes in a glass jar and it's a relatively new formula in the market of bronzers, but it has already become quite popular! Due to its airwhipped formula it feels great on the skin and it provides a light finish! Mousse bronzers are suitable for all skintypes and they're great for the summer, because we don't want a lot of stuff or heavy formulas on our skin when it's hot! Usually this type of bronzer provides a semi-matte finish, but some of them might be shimmery! You can apply mousse bronzers with a sponge, a stippling brush or even with your fingers! Whatever method you choose, make sure to blend it into your skin well ! ;)

  • Liquid Bronzer : This type of bronzer usually comes in a tube and it's lightweight and almost translucent that gets absorbed quickly into the skin for a subtle all over glow! Liquid bronzers are suitable for all skintypes and they're great for summer, because they're so lightweight and you can apply them with a sponge or with your fingers! You can also mix some liquid bronzer with your foundation for varying levels of color and for a more natural look!
