There's no unwritten rule discouraging the use of bronzer – especially during the summer! – but if you plan on looking polished and sophisticated versus overeasy and overdone, you'd be wise to pay attention to the fine balancing act that bronzer requires.
According to StyleList.com, it's more de mode this summer to reach for shades with a hint of rose or gold in them.
"This summer, you'll be seeing more subtle glows than deep, savage tans," celebrity makeup artist Brett Freedman told the news source. "Pink and gold undertones are going to be huge. They give a lighter, fresher and more natural air to a lift of color."
If you're a little lost at the makeup counter, reach for a bronzer compact that combines bronze and pink hues. Too Faced Pink Leopard Bronzer comes in a fun leopard-print design that'll make it both visually appealing and effortlessly easy to nail the shade you want this summer. Just be sure your foundation matches your natural summer glow, and do opt for brown or bronze eye makeup if you find that your regular winter black is starting to look a bit harsh in the sunlight.
