Trend To Try: Matte And Metallic

WE all have our favourite bronzer. It’s usually right at the front of our make-up storage area. But did you know that using two types of bronzers on your face will give you a really natural look, one that’s not so shimmery and not at all dull? Grab both your matte and metallic bronzers, here’s how to get the look.

Step 1

START with a great base. We recommend mixing a liquid foundation and an active moisturiser for a perfect tinted lotion with skincare benefits.

Step 2

TO create higher cheekbones, use a matt e bronzer and apply in a line underneath the cheekbone upwards to the temples. Use a shimmery bronzer on the actual cheekbone.

Step 3

USE a matt e bronzer along your jaw line and draw soft lines along each of the temples and along the top of your forehead near your hairline.

Step 4

START with a light hand and build ti ll you reach your desired look.

Step 5

BLEND all harsh lines. A kabuki brush is excellent for blending away any obvious lines. The stripy look isn’t cute.
