Do you wish your face to have a sun-lit summer bronze glow without looking fake? Get the sun kissed look with a loose bronze powder – but use a light hand to achieve a warm radiant glow – and don’t apply to your entire face. Follow the steps in this article, beginning with a freshly washed face.

Things You'll Need


After you have washed your face, pat dry with a soft towel. Apply a tinted moisturizer to your face and neck lightly, using your fingertips.

Before adding the bronzing powder, apply a translucent pressed powder to your entire face, ending at the jaw. Use your fingers to smooth and blend from your jaw in a downward motion to your neck. Nothing looks worse than seeing a definite “start and stop” line where makeup is concerned; always blend!

Now – the sun kissed bronze glow:
Using a makeup brush specifically made for loose powder, dip into the bronze powder and lightly swirl. Be sure to rid of excess powder by gently knocking it off of the brush. Lightly apply the bronzer to your forehead, cheeks, tip of nose and chin. If you are wearing a sleeveless shirt, don’t forget to brush a little powder onto your shoulders.

Look carefully – Were you a little heavy-handed to any area on your face? Simply dab away at it with a Kleenex.

Take your sun kissed glow into the evening by applying bronze eye shadow!
