Have you ever thought about putting your bronzer on without using your oversized kabuki brush? Believe it or not, it's no so out-of-the box to use your fingers (think cream based bronzers – blend!). This summer however, a new crop of the must-have makeup has shown up to impress – liquid bronzer. It's lighter than cream and seamlessly seeps into your skin like serum leaving you with the most healthy looking, natural glow – ever. The trick is all in how you apply it. Here are my tips, plus a recommendation.
Just like with regular bronzer, you want to apply it only where the sun would naturally hit your face. My favorite, Perricone MD No Bronzer Bronzer, $35, comes in a small glass bottle with a dropper. I place two small drops in the palm of my hand, rub my hands together and then rub them over my cheekbones from the inner corners of my eyes up to my temples. To customize the color, you can add more drops or blend to your liking. I then dip my pointer finger in the excess and go around my hairline on my forehead and dab a bit on my chin.
Liquid bronzer not only gives the most natural sun kissed look, but it's also foolproof to work with. Many other brands like Revlon, Stila and Armani have versions at different price points, but remember, application is key!
