Finding the right bronzer shade

So that you do not notice that your holiday stone comes out of the powder compact, the colour is the most important thing. “Make sure the bronzer has a natural skin tone and is not too orange. Glitter particles immediately expose the cheating”, advises Charlotte Tilbury. The depth of colour is also decisive. Ideally, the bronze powder should be only a little darker than your own skin tone, but not too light either. Ergo: If a brown stain is visible despite blinding, you need a lighter shade.

If virtually nothing is visible, you can confidently choose a darker product.

What is the best way to apply bronzer?

With a big, fluffy brush. “Primarily where you get the most sun. So: the bridge of the nose, the hairline and the cheeks,” Stroke the brush several times through the powder and then tap or blow the tip off carefully so that not too much product ends up on your face. Otherwise it will quickly become stained. Veneer carefully so that no edges remain visible.
