My Tips

  1. If you’re planning to apply it as more of a contour color, use a slightly fluffy, angled blush brush, which will fit nicely into the hollows of the cheeks and be small and precise enough to skim across the temples and the forehead.  The fluffiness also helps to ensure it doesn’t go on too strongly initially and can also be used to blend out the color.
  2. To add warmth, most bronzers will do this, but if you’re looking to add primarily definition, look for bronzers with brown or gray undertones.
  3. Apply in the shape of a 3–you want to skim along the edges of the forehead, along the temples, in the hollows of the cheek, and lightly along the outer jaw line.  Imagine the 3 beginning as the curve of the side of your forehead, with the middle of the 3 being the hollows of the cheeks, and the bottom of the three being the curve of your outer jaw line.
