Bronzer is an essential makeup product that everyone should feel confident using. But, if you have dark skin, you may feel unsure about how to properly use bronzer in your makeup routine. Luckily, bronzer is for everyone, and here at Elizabeth Mott, we love helping you embrace your natural beauty. This post is here to help you learn how to best use bronzer when you have a naturally darker skin tone, so that you can feel your best with any makeup you use.
Why Use a Bronzer?
Bronzer is meant to help bring warmth to your face, and you can absolutely still bring this warmth, even if your skin tone is naturally dark. It’s best if you apply bronzer on areas that you want to capture that warmth, which are usually the cheeks and nose. If you have dark skin, you’re not only working to bring out that warmth, but you’re working to bring more attention to your natural glow.
What Bronzer Should I Use?
Since you’re trying to bring out your natural glow with a bronzer, it’s important that you go for a shimmery--or luminous--bronzer! Our Whatup Beaches Luminous Bronzer would be the perfect choice for you. It works with all skin tones, and is silky and blendable, making it possible to work it in with any other makeup products you’re using. A luminous bronzer is sure to help your natural glow, as long as you apply it in the right areas!
Where Should I Apply Bronzer?
Applying bronzer when you have dark skin shouldn’t be all that different from someone applying bronzer who has lighter skin. You’ll want to focus on areas that the sun would naturally hit, meaning the nose, cheeks, temples, and even the chin. This will add just the right amount of shimmer and glow to your skin, so that you can feel confident rocking those beautiful warm tones, any time of year.
