If you’re a makeup lover, you’re most likely to have had a phase in your life when you’ve been obsessed with the naturally bronzed look. This year, the look is back. We saw it as a runway-favourite with supermodels showing us how to use a bronzer to mimic a natural sun-kissed glow. Think of what your skin looks like after you’ve spent a few days on the beach; the right bronzer can give you that post-vacation glow in just a few strokes.
The goal is to create a golden glow around your face. Identify the points where the sun would naturally hit your skin, and apply some bronzer on those points for a natural sun-lit complexion. Use a bronzer along your jawline, in the hollows of your cheekbones, around your temples, and on your forehead. But don’t confuse bronzing with contouring. Contouring defines and sculpts your features, while bronzing gives your skin a healthy glow.
Here’s how you can get naturally bronzed skin, sans the vacation!
For a day look, you want to look as natural as possible. Use a powder or cream bronzer like the Lakmé Absolute Sun Kissed Bronzer or the Kareena Kapoor Khan By Lakmé Absolute Face Contour in a colour that’s just one or two shades darker than your complexion. This will add a subtle warmth to your face and accentuate those cheeks.
For a party look, you can try a more luminous glow using a shimmer bronzer. Layer the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Shimmer Brick over the cream bronzer to give your skin a goddess-like glow, perfect for the night.
