Ask any beauty what product she would most like to have on a deserted island, and the answer would most likely be her bronzing powder. This is the most versatile cosmetic you will ever own. Bronzing is the way to finish your face. Forget blush! I have never seen more beauty blunders than I have with the misuse of blush. I can’t begin to tell you how many stripes and circles I have had to wipe off. Use blush improperly and you end up looking like a circus clown or a road marker. This is why I suggest (no, implore) you use bronzing powder to add color to your face. It’s the perfect tool for nonprofessionals to use to contour their faces. Use it on the cheeks, down the sides of the nose (to slim), under the jawline (to take away a double chin or drooping jowls), and to add color to the face. You’ll find bronzing powder readily available at drugstores, cosmetic counters – wherever your budget takes you. But please get some and use it! Why take risks with the sun when you can get a better sun-kissed look with this wonderful product? Can you tell it’s my favorite all-time cosmetic?
Bronzer is absolutely elegant for creating a monochromatic look. Use it to shadow eyes, as a finishing powder for lips, to soften eyebrows, and as a finishing powder to set makeup. Don’t go too dark. A shade or two darker than your regular color is best.
