The cold, gray Winter has robbed most of us of our color, but fear not, here are some great products to fake out the weather!

Bronzer is a must have for every makeup kit - It not only gives your skin tone "warmth," it is also essential for contouring your face!

The Bronzed & The Beautiful Set by Too Faced Cosmetics

MUA Tricks:

To make cheek bones appear more prominent:  Sweep bronzer in the "hollow" of the cheek (just under the bone)  on into the hair line.

note how the cheek bones are further defined through the use of a darker tone under the bone


To slim the face:  Apply bronzer under cheek bones, and around entire hairline and under jaw line.

slimming technique: note darker/tanner areas along hairline and jaw

Where ever depth ( the bronzer ) is in contrast with your natural color, a reduction will appear.  This means the highlighted / natural color will "come forward" where the tanned areas will recede/ appear farther away - creating a slimming effect!


Primed & Poreless by Too Faced Cosemtics

If you are craving color, without the ill effects of sun over-exposure, try Primed and Poreless Bronzed Tint from Too Faced Cosmetics - This pore minimizer with SPF 20 will leave your skin protected, and flawless!

Professional's note:
Avoid a face Bronzer with alot of "shimmer" - They can leave the skin looking "dirty" or "oily" especially when contouring or when used prior to flash photography.
