I love the summer makeup trend that is all about bronzed beauty. In fact, the summer look of a bronzed face is body is probably one of the easiest to attain due the abundance of bronzers on the market. Whether you have fair skin or have dark skin, you can have a gorgeous bronzed and beautiful look for summer. Light or dark, your beauty can be enhanced with just a touch of bronzer. Apply bronzer on the places where the sun naturally hits the face — cheeks, across the forehead, accross the nose and chin. Don’t forget the eyelids and tops of ears!
Add a bronze glow to your body by incorporating a bronzing lotion or bronzing body moisturizer for the head-to-toe bronzed beauty. This summer trend of bronzed beauty look will certainly have you turning heads!
