#HQBeautyHacks : How to Apply Bronzer for a Natural Contour

It’s not a surprise that we all love a good contour. The contour trend has really kicked off in the past few years, and we can’t get enough of it, but there are some days where we kinda want to tone it down a little. Don’t get us wrong, we still want to define those cheek bones, but a little more naturally. We tried out a few techniques and found the perfect way to get a natural contour.

How to Apply Bronzer for a Natural Contour

We hit the studio with insta-babe Charmie Jane to show you how to apply bronzer for a natural contour!

Step 1: Sweep & Tap

Sweep a brush over the product, then tap off any excess to avoid applying too much product. We recommend a large angled brush like the Real Techniques Retractable Kabuki brush.

Step 2: Three Is The Magic Number

Sweep over your face in a 3 shape, starting at the top around your temples, inwards over your cheekbones, back out towards your ear, then inwards along your jaw line towards your chin. Do this 2-3 times each side.
