It’s that time of year once again when your summer glow begins to fade as quickly as the daylight. So while you begin to stow away your short shorts and tanks keep your bronzer within reach. Just because the temperature change is well under way (unless you live in LA) that does mean you need to surrender to a pasty complexion.

Although it’s perfectly acceptable to use bronzer year round the type of bronzer and the application do need to change.

First step: Unlike the summer months where you sweep on a beautiful shimmery bronzer on a sun-kissed faced and voila! The most important thing to consider is choosing a matte finish bronzer. It will complement a paler complexion without any confusion.

Second step: Unlike summer application where you apply to the chin, hairline and cheeks, you need only to apply at the hollows of your cheeks. Begin at the top of your ear and sweep downwards towards the corner of your lip.

Third step: To complete the autumn glow compliment your bronzer with a cinnamon or deep rose blush. These tones have a brown tone that blend nicely with bronzer.

Fourth step: Make sure to blend the blush and bronzer with blending brush to avoid any harsh lines.

Enjoy the look and feeling of a warm glow even if it’s chilly outside!
