Let’s face it (pun intended!), everyone can use a little glow and warmth in their life. We’re talking about bronzer, of course. “Depending on your face shape, strategic placement of bronzer is key to creating the perfect glow and enhancing your complexion,” notes makeup artist Rachel Halsey. But how do you know the best spots to apply?
Apply your bronzer to the top of the forehead, along the hairline. Also sweep it along the cheeks (not the hollows, unless you want a more contoured look). You can also dust along the bridge of the nose gently, just don’t overdo it.
To slim a round face, try applying the bronzer along the cheekbones, downward toward the jaw so it creates a soft shadow that slims the face. Make sure to blend well so it’s natural — unless you want an extreme contoured look.
Rectangular Face Shape
With a rectangular face shape, try sweeping your bronzer along the middle of the forehead, and along the middle of the cheeks (right between the hollows and the top of the cheekbones).
Square Face Shape
Apply your bronzer along the forehead and cheeks (as you did above), but use a more curved method to soften the corners of your face.
