How to Apply Bronzer and Highlighter for a Perfect Glow
Nothing says fresh complexion like a pretty flush of color on your cheeks, but in order to achieve that, it’s important to know exactly how to apply bronzer, as well as where to place your blush and highlighter. Before you get ready to throw in the towel without giving it a try because it sounds a little too complicated, think again. You can do all of this with only one product and one brush—yes, really! Keep an eye out for palettes that provide all-in-one options with a bronzer, blush and highlighter—there are high and low versions that work just as well, so you can find one at Sephora just as easily as at your local drugstore. If you’re a novice, it’ll be easier to stick to a powder formula, but if you feel confident about trying this look, cream is nice, too, and offers a little more color payoff upon application. With powder, though, you can build if you want to as you master your technique. A dual-ended brush is great for this look, but if you already have a separate angled brush for contouring and a fluffier one for powder, you’re all set. Looking a little puffy and trying to sculpt your face? Pay close attention to the hollows of your cheeks when you apply bronzer and then the high points for highlighter. Within just a few sweeps of each, you’ll notice that your face takes on a more lifted look and who wouldn’t want that? There are easy-to-master tricks that once you nail them, you’ll never forget them and you’ll be glad to have them in your beauty arsenal.
