Bronzers are used to give you that perfect sun-kissed glowy look to your skin without exposing your skin to the harmful sun and getting tanned. But if you choose the wrong bronzer shade, your skin will look muddy and pale making you look dull. The funda is to make your skin look natural only with a golden glow to it. So the question is how will you choose the right shade of bronzer for Indian skin this summer. Read on.

Best Bronzer for Indian skin:

Bronzers come in light, medium and dark shades. Never choose a shade darker than your skin tone.

  • If you have a pale skin tone, go for a pale beige color with rosy gold, pink shimmer or peach undertones.
  • For fair complexioned girls, go for beigy browns or honey colours with pinkish tint.
  • If you have a medium skin tone with yellowish undertones, choose a bronzer that’s browny pink with a tiny bit of orange for warmth.
  • Medium darkish complexioned girls, go for brownish orange bronzers for the sun tanned effect. Picking a bronzer for dark skin is the toughest!

There are three types of bronzers from which you can choose:

  • Powder: Easiest to use and apply. Best suited if you want to avoid the shiny look and get a subtle look. Always dust off brush before applying on face.
  • Cream: Suitable for all skin and gives a nice bronzing effect. Avoid the bridge of your nose when using the cream consistency.
  • Gel or Serum: Gives a translucent coverage. Use this all over your face and forget using makeup.

Bronzers have a very brown undertone, so its best if you choose a bronzer a shade or two lighter than your skin tone. Anything too dark could make you look orange and dirty. Also avoid overly shimmery bronzers, which end up looking fake, especially during the day.

The best type of bronzer to buy is a sheer, neutral light brown shade.

  • Choose the best bronzer for your Indian skin.
  • Take a fluffy, wide bronzer brush available especially in the market.
  • Apply the foundation evenly on the face to smoothen the complexion. Also blend it till your neck to give a natural look.
  • Swirl brush smoothly into the bronzer. Apply lightly rather than adding darkly at once.
  • Concentrate the bronzer on areas where the sun usually focuses. Use very light stroke applications.
