About the Expert
Hi, my name is Chantelle Tarride, and I'm a professional makeup artist, and today I'm going to show you how to choose the correct bronzer for your tan skin. The best tip that I can tell you is go with anything that's minimal with glitter and shimmer because that's going to give you the most natural look. This particular one that I have is a very close color to my own tan skin. You don't want to go darker because you don't really want to look fake because you're going to now look fake from your neck to your face and your body and your arms. Go as close to your natural color as possible, something that's still shimmery, not glittery, not anything too shiny because you want to make it look natural like a natural glow. So, I go in with my powder brush, sweep it on areas that I know need highlighting instantly like the cheekbones and nose bone and then very lightly, very lightly again. This is a natural look. When you're bronzing your entire face remember you're not going to match your body so I'm just going to go very very light hand over my entire face and neck, even into my chest if you're showing your chest because you want that even coverage. Go onto your face and that's it. Hope you enjoyed this clip on how to choose the correct bronzer for your tan skin. I'm Chantelle Tarride, and thank you for watching.
