Read below as this expert offers some beauty tips on how to use bronzers…
Dior Bronze Sun Powder Spray: You can mist on in the summertime over self-tanner, the bronze spray will give you more of an instant glow while your self-tanner is working.
Dior Bronze Collagen-Activ Bronzer (applied with Dior Bronzer Brush): It’s matte and there’s also an SPF in it. I like to sweep the bronzer in a circular motion around the eye. When you do that it actually brightens up the eye area. I don’t like putting it all over the face because it looks unnatural, just put where the sun would naturally hit you.
Dior ‘DiorBronze’ Sun Powder Spray: If you have a lot of skin showing you can use this bronzing spray on your decolletage area as well as your shoulders and arms because it’s sweat-proof and transfer resistant.
Dior Diorskin Shimmer Star in Amber Diamond: This is a great highlighter for summer. It’s very refined and not a chunky shimmer. It gives you an illuminating sheen versus a glitter makes the tan look very healthy and not makeup-ey.
Dior Addict Lipcolor Pink Lust 763: This shade gives you a pop and a modern look against glowing skin. Either way go bright–at Miami Swim Fashion Week, everyone had gorgeous glowing bronze skin with bright pink or coral on the lips.
Dior Eye Show in Undressed Beige: Apply this all over the lid for a subtle shimmer. Then finish off with Dior 1-Colour Eyeshadow in Gold Touch and DiorShow Waterproof Mascara.
