Natural natural beauty is the main trend of the last years. To create a flawless face tone is the paramount task of Nude makeup. The bronzer will help, giving your skin a tanned tone, smoothing out imperfections and evening out your skin tone. Depending on the desired effect, bronzing powder can be roughly divided into sculptors and bronzers.
Sculptors are necessary to conceal imperfections: to darken some areas, to hide broad cheekbones, to visually reduce the forehead, to slightly correct the shape of the nose. These products are chosen to match your complexion, but a couple of shades darker. Sculptor is, in fact, a kind of corrector for the shape of the face. As a rule, the texture of the product is matte and has no red undertones, so it can be used for any skin type.
Bronzers, on the other hand, are used to accentuate the tan on an already tanned face. With the right bronzer, you can make your complexion brighter, even out skin tone and create a bright suntan effect, which is very important in the summertime. As a rule, bronzing powders are applied to the protruding areas – cheekbones, nose, chin, forehead and neck. But it is important that bronzers are not sculptors, as they most often contain shimmer.
Choosing a bronzer for the face
- skin tone. When choosing a bronzer, you should be guided by your own facial tone. The darker it is, the darker the bronzer can be and vice versa. It is preferable to use a shade darker than the natural skin tone.
- Scope.First of all, you should decide for what purpose the bronzer will be used – to hide some flaws, to give the face a more interesting relief or to emphasize the natural tan.
- Skin type. For dehydrated, dry skin, a creamy, moisturizing bronzer is best. Oily skin needs a product with a strong matte effect.
- Form.Matte shades are ideal for everyday makeup, pearlescent with sequins for evening makeup.
