Makeup Tips To Apply Bronzer
13. Apply In A Triangular Fashion For Better Blending.
Though it’s a common practice to apply bronzer with a fluffy brush on the hollow of your cheeks, it is a better idea to draw two inverted triangles on your cheeks with a bronzer. Blend it out, and you will have the perfectly done bronzer that will give you perfectly chiseled features.
14. DIY Bronzer.
If you are in the mood for trying out something fun, try making your own bronzer. All you need are a few items that are already sitting on your kitchen shelf. Take some cinnamon powder, cocoa powder, some nutmeg powder, and mix with some cornstarch – and there you have your bronzer. If you are a fan of makeup with natural ingredients or want to keep chemicals completely at bay, it doesn’t get any more natural than this.
