Next up in the natural beauty series is clean bronzers! I feel like foundation and concealer are harder products to match and test to conventional products but bronzers were FUN.

With bronzers it comes down to personal preference. Do you like a powder bronzer or a cream bronzer? Warm toned or more cool toned shades? I have a bajillion bronzers in my collection so it was fun to actually go through and put these bronzers to the test.

How to Apply Bronzer

Bronzer is typically applied to the cheekbones, nose, forehead and just below the chin. That being said it can also be used as contour if you’re wanting a more structured makeup look.

You’ll apply your natural bronzer with either a brush or beauty sponge. The key is to blend so you don’t end up with streaky looking cheeks.

Pigment is also based on preference. Typically a warmer shade is reserved for bronzer and cool toned for contour but honestly, you do you!

    Goodbye, Beautycounter! I’m into powder bronzers because I find them easier to put on.
