I adore the below video from celeb makeup artist Brett Freedman, teaching us how to get properly bronzed skin using starlet Jenny Mollen as our demo. Gorgeous!
Don't have time to watch the clip? Here is the cliff notes version of what Brett recommends:
The most important step to getting a bronzed makeup look is prepping the skin! Start by applying your favorite tinted moisturizer or foundation and set it with a loose or pressed powder in your skin color. Brett loves MAC's Mineralize for it's sheer coverage. The powder stops the skin from grabbing the too-dark bronzing color.
Next, use a fluffy brush to apply your bronzer (Brett uses Elizabeth Arden Bronze Glow Pure Finish Mineral Bronzing Powder), starting at the jaw line, working your way up. Watch as your whole face warms up and immediately looks more alive!
Bonus tip: make sure you get the neck! Use Vanitymark's SUMMERSKIN on your chest, shoulders, and neck right up to the jaw line for an all over matching, bronzed color.
Getting a gorgeous bronzed glow has never been so simple!
