Bronzer is great for adding dimension to your face, but if you don’t know what you’re doing or how to apply bronzer correctly, you can run the risk of making your skin look muddy, especially if you have pale skin. Don’t worry though, we’re going to give you some techniques on how to apply bronzer for fair skin. So you can achieve radiant, glowy skin and feel confident that you look bronzed not orange!
The Best Shade for Fair Skin
If you have fair skin, you want to go for natural-looking warmth, so the best advice we can give you is to choose a bronzer that’s a few shades deeper than your natural skin tone. Remember, even if you have pale skin, your undertone can still be warm, so go for a warm-toned bronzer otherwise your face could end up looking dirty rather than glowing.
If your skin’s undertone is cool with pink undertones, try something just a little warmer than your skin tone so you don’t risk it looking orange against your skin.
How to Apply Bronzer for Fair Skin
To softly sculpt your features, apply bronzer just below your hairline, down your cheekbones cheeks and across your jawline and neck to give your skin that sun-kissed effect.
The best kind of brush to use for bronzer application is something like Luxe Setting Powder Brush because the soft bristles allow for delicate application and amazing blending while the tapered, tulip shape is ideal for precise product placement. Don’t go for a brush that is too dense, otherwise, you could unintentionally pick up more product than you need for that natural glow.
Don’t forget to blend. It’s probably the key step in making your bronzer look good, regardless of your skin tone. You want it to look seamless, not streaky.
Pro-Tip: Before you step out, check your makeup in a room with natural sunlight, away from the yellow or blue hue of your light bulbs, as these can alter your appearance. Through this step, you can be sure that your skin looks good at every angle and in every lighting.
