6 Places to Apply Bronzer for a Sunkissed Glow - Girl Meets Forty Blog

Who doesn't love that gorgeous sun-kissed glow, even if you haven't stepped foot on a beach? Bronzer is every makeup lover's secret weapon to achieving that coveted radiant look. But where exactly should you be applying it for maximum impact? Fear not, my fellow glow-getters! In this blog post, we'll unveil the five key areas to apply bronzer, along with some tips and tricks to help you achieve that perfect sun-kissed glow. So grab your bronzing brushes, and let's get ready to shine!

The Forehead : Let's start at the top, shall we? Applying bronzer to your forehead can give you a warm, sun-kissed glow that screams "just got back from a tropical vacation." Begin by lightly dusting bronzer along your hairline, blending it towards the center of your forehead. This technique helps create a natural-looking shadow effect, making your face appear more sculpted.

Cheekbones : Now, let's move on to the cheekbones, the holy grail of bronzer application. To find the perfect placement, imagine drawing a diagonal line from the center of your ear towards the corner of your mouth. Apply bronzer along this line, blending it gently towards the temples. This will create a subtle contour effect, enhancing your bone structure and giving you that coveted sculpted look. Remember, less is more - we want a natural glow.

Nose : Next stop, the nose! Applying bronzer to your nose can give it a sun-kissed, slightly tanned appearance. Start by lightly dusting bronzer down the sides of your nose, blending it towards the tip. This technique helps create the illusion of a slimmer, more defined nose.

Jawline : Ah, the jawline - the secret weapon for a perfectly sculpted face. Applying bronzer along your jawline helps define it, creating a more chiseled appearance. Start at the earlobe and blend the bronzer downwards, towards your chin. This technique adds depth and dimension to your face, making you look like you were born with those perfectly defined features.

Eyes : Bronzer can also be used to add warmth and definition to your eyes. Apply a small amount of bronzer to the crease of your eyelids using a fluffy blending brush. This will create depth and dimension, giving your eyes a natural, sun-kissed appearance. Be sure to blend the bronzer well for a seamless transition.

Collarbones : Last but not least, let's not forget about those collarbones! Applying bronzer to your collarbones can give them a subtle glow, creating the illusion of a more defined and toned upper body. Gently dust bronzer along the collarbone area, blending it towards the shoulders. This technique is perfect for those summer days when you want to rock that off-the-shoulder top or a strappy dress.

And there you have it, my fellow glow-getters - the five key areas to apply bronzer for that perfect sun-kissed glow. Remember, the key is to keep it natural and blend, blend, blend! Whether you're going for a day at the beach or simply want to brighten up your everyday look, bronzer is your ticket to a radiant complexion. So grab your favorite bronzer, follow these tips, and get ready to shine like the sun itself. Go forth and glow, my friends!
