HQhair’s Guide To The Best Bronzers

It’s slowly starting to feel like summer might actually be around the corner. The nights are getting lighter, the sun is starting to shine through the clouds, and it’s nearly warm enough to start taking off those layers. In the (almost) summer spirit, we’ve put together our guide to the best bronzers so that you can get the summer glow early!

How To Apply Bronzer

HQhair's Guide to the best bronzers
No matter which bronzer you choose, you’ll only get the best results if you know how to properly apply it. Bronzer should be applied to the areas of your face that the sun would naturally fall on. For example, the top of your forehead, your nose and your cheekbones – basically the parts of your face that the sun would hit if it were above you!

Top tip: Make sure you blend your bronzer well for a more natural look.

I’ve always loved anything artistic and creative, and experimenting with makeup is no exception! Bold and bright lip colours are my vice. When I’m not trying out new make-up products, you can usually find me scrolling through Instagram, laughing at the latest snapchat filter, or catching up with friends over a few cocktails. Long Island Iced Tea is my staple.
