How to Slim the Face With Bronzer

Using bronzer as a daily part of your makeup routine is a great way to slim your face. Practice is the key to getting bronzer in the right places to give you a slim look. Use mineral, liquid or powder bronzer to achieve the results you desire.

Step 1Start with a clean face. Apply concealer and foundation to even out skin tone and hide blemishes.

Step 2Use a bronzer that is just darker than your skin tone with minimal shimmer. Start with a small amount of bronzer, and increase the amounts as needed.

Step 3Apply bronzer to your cheek bones first. Apply bronzer under the cheek bones from the hairline to the apple of the cheek. Gradually increase the thickness of the line of bronzer as it gets closer to the cheek.

Step 4Add bronzer to your temples to slim a wide or round forehead.

Step 5Brush bronzer down the sides of the nose to slim it. Put a touch of bronzer on the tip of your nose to make it appear smaller.

Step 6Shade your jaw line to mask a double chin. Apply bronzer to your jaw ,and blend it well. Blend the bronzer so that it is not evident where it begins and ends.

Step 7Blend all areas of bronzer well. Apply the remainder of your makeup as usual.

Tips & Warnings
Use eye makeup to make the eyes look larger and further slim your face.
Use a bold, glossy lip color to plump your lips and make your face look smaller.
