How to make bronzer easier to blend

Let's be honest. Tanning doesn't have quite the allure it once did, but that doesn't mean you can't fake a healthy glow. Bronzer gives skin a natural warmth that other makeup products just can't replicate. To make it look natural, you need to blend it seamlessly with your skin.
Blending can be challenging, especially when you're applying a powder product over a liquid or cream base. If you wear foundation, you can make the process easier by setting your base makeup with translucent or matching setting powder before applying bronzer. A light layer of powder locks the foundation in place and gives the skin enough "slip" so the powder bronzer can be fully diffused.

Instructions
1. Apply foundation, if desired, then lightly pat setting powder all over the face with a fluffy powder brush. Tip: Use the side of the brush instead of the tip to prevent you from accidentally wiping off your foundation.
2. Swirl the bronzing brush in the bronzer, tap off the excess product, then swirl the brush gently along the cheekbones, temples and outer corners of the forehead. Continue to blend, as needed, until the product is diffused into the hairline.
No more pale, dull skin with this smart technique. Stay pretty, and please share these bronzing tips on Facebook.
