Get a healthy bronzed glow with these favourite bronzers without the risk of damaging UV rays and some bronzing tips!

Tip #1: Find the right bronzing shade for your skin tone, and then dust onto areas of the face where the sun would naturally hit, such as the forehead, cheeks, and chin. Remember to apply with a light hand; you don’t want to look muddy and build up to your desired color and then blend to achieve instantly radiant skin.
Tip #2: You should use a bronzer to look healthier and sun-kissed, not ‘bronze’.
Tip #3: You shouldn’t pick a color that is more than one shade darker than your natural skin color.
Tip #4: When applying bronzer, use a big, fluffy brush and tap off any excess product before swiping it on your face.
