A sweep of bronzer is a game changer when it comes to lifting your complexion, there's no denying it! We know, we know, bronzer can be a little daunting, but it doesn’t need to be. Just find the right shade (we’ve got a guide right here – how handy?!), and you’ll never look back.
So how do you find the right shade? It’s simple, people! Just look at your skin tone. The secret to having the glow of your dreams is right there. But, first, you need to consider your complexion…
Fair: Lighter shades with pink tones compliment pale skin
Olive: Warm, golden undertones will look amazing on your warm skin
Medium: A pop of peach will totally upgrade your bronzer
Dark: Deep, brassy bronzers are the ones for you
All about undertones
Got it? Good. Now it’s time to get deep. Real deep – we’re looking at our skin’s undertones. And no, you don’t have to be a scientist to do this. It’s actually pretty simple.
How to figure out your undertone
There's quite a simple test to discover your skin's undertone. Think about your fave jewellery. Do you go for gold or silver? If you think golden jewellery suits you best, you probably have warm undertones. If silver is your vice, you probably have cool undertones. And if you’re one of those lucky colour chameleons, you probably have neutral undertones.
What do I do with this info?
Now you know your undertones, it’s time to choose a bronzer that’s gonna leave you golden.
Neutral undertone: Finding the perf bronzer is tricky if you’ve got neutral undertones (boo). To avoid unnatural-looking faux pas, swap your bronzer for a pressed powder. If you really want to get your bronze on, opt for pink tones.
Now you know all about bronzers, why don't you get your glow on?
