Before you try any of these makeup tips, ensure you have the right bronzer on hand. We recommend the Lakmé Absolute Moon-Lit Highlighter for the job. This handy beauty product has dual shades; the pearlescent light one is for highlighting and the warmer dark one is for bronzing. With its reflective, shimmery finish, this bronzer is all your makeup kit needs.
- To tint your cheeks
When you are running out of time and want to give your cheeks a warm hint of colour, bronzer will come to your aid. Dab a fluffy brush in powdered bronzer, pat it over the apples of your cheeks and blend it upwards towards the temples. Especially on olive and dusky complexions, the yellow undertones of bronzer add glorious warmth to the cheeks!
BB pro tip—Go light handed when applying it in place of blush because too much bronzer can make your face look muddy.
- To shape your décolletage
If wide necklines and strapless dresses are your wardrobe staples, here’s a way to shape your décolletage when you slip them on. Dip a narrow angled brush in bronzer and dust it over and under the collar bone and on either side of the neck. Then go in with a powder brush and blend thoroughly so that no makeup lines are visible. This genius makeup tip is a sure-fire way to get a shapely, swan-like neck and décolletage.
- To colour your peepers
No more is copper just an element on the periodic table. Thanks to metallic eyes making their way on the runway and into our hearts, sporting bronzy lids is now the trend du jour. To get runway ready peepers, dip a flat applicator brush in your bronzer and pat over your eyelid and into your crease. As bronzer is just a few shades darker than your own skin tone, it defines the lid naturally with a hint of warmth.
- To slim your nose
Ever looked in the mirror and wished your large schnoz was a tad smaller? Now you can make that possible with the help of some clever makeup tricks. Dip an angled eye shadow brush in your bronzer and apply it vertically on the sides of your nose bridge and horizontally just below the tip of your nose. Blend it in thoroughly and look in the mirror to see yourself with a slimmer nose!
