Applying a Bronzer According to Face Shape for a Natural Sunkissed Look

Do you sometimes wonder how some people always look fresh and sunkissed even during fall? It’s like their complexion is perfect all year round! A healthy-looking skin tone is always on trend and you need a bronzer to add that au naturale glow and warmth to your face.

ELES - Bronzer - Face Shape 1

Applying bronzer is key to creating the perfect glow you want to achieve. It also enhances your complexion. Strategically applying it according to your face shape makes that glow look so natural. You’ll look like you’re not wearing makeup at all. Also remember that as you gain or lose weight, your face shape may change. Keeping these pointers handy will help you enhance your face shape and complexion. Are you ready? Grab your ELES Anti-Oxidant Bronzer and follow the steps below:

The General Rule in Bronzer Application

Our goal here is to add a “natural glow” to your everyday look. With contouring, you use a bronzer and a highlighter. This time, we will only use a matte bronzer. The general rule is to apply it on areas of the face on which the sun would naturally touch — forehead, bridge of the nose and cheekbones.

Oval Face Shape

Where to apply:

  • top of the forehead, along the hairline
  • apples of your cheeks (not the hollows like when you contour)
  • dust along bridge of the nose

Heart Face Shape

Where to apply:

  • forehead (apply more on hairline and temple for a more proportioned look)
  • cheekbones (heart-shaped face has prominent cheekbones so apply bronzer on the cheekbones and a little bit on the side)
  • dust bronzer on the center of the chin

Round Face Shape

Where to apply:

  • Slim the face by applying along the cheekbones downward towards the jaw. This will create a subtle rectangular effect that elongates the face a little bit.

Rectangular/Oblong Face Shape

Where to apply:

  • middle of the forehead to shorten the length of the face
  • middle of the cheeks (right between the hollows and the top of the cheekbones)

Square Face Shape

Where to apply:

  • a little on forehead, curving to the temples to soften the corners of the face
  • top of the cheekbones

Need some last minute help with your Valentine’s evening makeup?!

ELES - Natural Valentine's Day Makeup

Perfect for Valentine’s Day (and night) — Australia supermodel Shanina Shaik sporting the “no makeup” makeup look

Whether it be for a date-night with a loved-one or a fun night out with the girls, here are some makeup tips on how to be date-ready this Valentine’s Day!

FACE

A fresh face that appears free of makeup is one of the most coveted looks. After all who doesn’t want to look like they have flawless skin without even trying?

Firstly apply a long-lasting base they’ll keep makeup in place in this hot weather! Smooth all over face and neck and spread gently to even the complexion. Remember less is more!

For natural sun-kissed radiance apply bronzer. Use it to contour beneath your cheeks and jawline to “slim” the face, add a swipe to the forehead for that little extra “natural tan”.

A clever use of highlighter means that any complexion can have a healthy radiance. Apply sparingly where light would naturally hit your face – brow bones, cheeks and the tip of the nose.

Try;

  • ELES Age Defying BB Cream 30 – it primes, tints, nourishes, evens out skin tone and protects all in one. And upon application skin appears more uniform and luminous. I promise!
  • ELES NEW Anti-oxidant Bronzer this multi-faceted bronzer offers a subtle bronzed hue and is rich in vitamins C & E to condition the skin as well as help combat the damaging effects of free radical scavengers!
  • ELES Illuminator – a sheer, lightweight liquid illuminator that imparts a natural radiance to the skin creating the ultimate shimmer or subtle bronze glow. You can also bend into foundation for an all over luminosity or apply to decollaté for sun-kissed radiance.

EYES

Apply eye shadow according to your eye shape below.

Then take your bronzer and apply just above the crease of the eyelid and beneath the lower lash line for a natural smokey eye.

Next coat lashes with mascara by applying from the base to the tip in a slow sweeping motion, for thicker and longer lashes, allow to semi-dry and apply a second coat.

Try;

BROWS

Use a light hand when doing your brows.

Try:

  • ELES Brow Blender in Dark Taupe. With the spool end brush the brows, then using the short soft strokes, apply pencil to achieve a natural effect, brush again to mute the edges.

LIPS

To complete the look, finish with a nude lippie with a touch of pink.
