A luminous bronzer, or bronzer with shiny particles, is used to achieve a skin with gloss and shine. Compact bronzers can be applied in layers, thin coatings that can be upgraded as desired. When applying, it is also important to avoid applying a glossy bronzer across the face. It is applied only to areas of the face to which the natural sun hits first, which are the highest point of the face - along the nose, the hairline, the cheekbone and the beard.
Mat bronzers are used to achieve a defined look and natural contour of the face. Invest in a quality matte bronzer that is shade up to two darker than your natural tone and you will be able to use it all year round. The aim of the mat bronzer is to define the facial structure using light and shadow. The main areas to focus on are the places you want to visually reduce or stand out. The most common are facial depression, the top of the forehead, the jawline and the nose line, but this is a process that greatly depends on the natural facial features.
Translucent bronzers usually come as liquid bronzers of light, gel textures. This type of bronzer gives the skin a very natural sun-lit tint, it can be used on the whole face and body. Unlike glittery, shiny compact bronzers, liquid bronzers give a sophisticated finish. It completely melts into the skin and gives warmth to the skin. It can be applied in many ways. For a more subtle shine in places where the sun naturally hits first the face, it can be applied with brush or fingers. If you want to give your whole face a sunny look, mix the drop to two bronzers with a liquid base or day cream and apply on your face.
For the application of compact and powdered products, use large and soft brushes that will apply the product to the skin in soft and breathable layers, softened edges. For creamy and liquid textures, use your fingers to heat the product with your warmth and activate it and make it easier to apply and treat skin.
