The 1-Minute Bronzer Trick To Give You An Instant Glow

Notice how good you look when you’re glowing?

Because that glow is all we want for our complexions, isn’t it? Whether it’s in our lifestyle, skincare routine, or makeup, there’s nothing we won’t try in order to get that healthy warm flush.

But if you don’t have time for  lounging out in the sun of if your skin is misbehaving, there’s always a way to get that gorgeous flush with makeup. And we’ve found the easiest and fastest way to do it, no tricky techniques or layers of products. All you need is some very well-placed bronzer. Here’s how!

It’s called the ‘striping’ method. Think how a strip of sun hits your nose and cheekbones and warms you up from within, leaving just a hint of sun-kissed glow.

To mimic the look with makeup, use a densely-packed brush to pick up your powder bronzer, and pat it into a straight line across your cheekbones and across the bridge of your nose. Next, grab a big soft blusher brush to blend it all in, focusing on the edges to remove harsh lines.

And that’s it, glow away!
