I used to be the biggest sun seeker. After having a skin caner removed in a place that, well hurt like a bitch, I decided that seeking the Vitamin C for me comes in the form of spray tan or tan in a can. Do I still get out in the sun? Yes. Do I baste myself like a Christmas turkey, not without sunscreen.
So in the winter, I try to also have some type of color to my face. I have been enamored with contouring and bronzing. Does this mean I have perfected the art and will look like Kim Kardash? Lawd, I hope not. That would mean I would be carrying a gold digger's baby and it will be born with dollar sign magnifying sun glasses.
Any hoot, I have purchased several bronzers the last month or so. Snookie would be proud. I know there are several expensive brands but moma on a buget, so after four different kinds and several shades I found that the Elf Blush/Bronzer Duo in St. Lucia is the ticket. Now don't get me wrong. I am sure there are many ways to do this without looking like the chick from Something About Mary. And I certainly haven't perfected it. I know there are certain brushes to use and many ways to do this, but I wanted to share this trick with everyone.
The darker areas are the ones you use the bronzing shade on. I mean you can even contour your nose. I like this idea since I learned recently that your nose keeps growing as you get older. Thank you forty one year old self. And your welcome for that little learning lesson for the day. You can click the source at the bottom of the picture and go to the site to see how its done or for craps sake, You Tube it. But the little road map of the face looks pretty self explanatory.
So, ladies, make sure instead of looking like you stuck your face in a chocolate pie, you perfect the art of bronzing. My tip is bronzing the hollows of the cheeks and then adding the blush just right above, then I take a big bristle all over fact blush and blend. But do start out light, too much bronzer and you look like you got into a mud pie fight.
This is one trick I have learned to keep looking scrumfunkalicious. Do you contour and bronze it up? Tips and tricks are welcome.
