Firstly, find the points of the face that are more natural to bronze: imagine the sun directly above your head and then where the light would hit the face. This is where to apply bronzer - across the top of the cheek bones, the bridge of the nose and finally across the forehead.
It is worth thinking about where you hold your brush. Neil’s top tip for when you want a fuller finish with more bronzer is to hold the brush closer to the face. If you want a lighter dusting, hold the brush further away from the face.
When applying bronzer, always go down the side of the neck to connect the face with the body. Add a little bronzer underneath and in front of the chin – this is an old pro makeup artist trick to make the cheekbones appear wider.

Next, add a little bit more radiance back to the skin by adding a sweep of blusher to the tops of the cheek bones and a little bit over the nose. We’ve used Master Heat Blusher in ‘Coral Fever’. Sometimes the skin’s natural pink tones are lost when applying bronzer, so blush brings that back to the skin.
With the illuminating side of the of the brick’s bronzer, a top tip is to use a blending eyeshadow brush to add highlight to the tops of the cheek bones and around the eye socket near the eyebrow arch. You can also apply a small amount of the illuminating makeup to the top of the forehead on both sides over the eyes, along the bridge of the nose and, finally, a dusting on the cupid’s bow.
