What To Look For In The Best Bronzer For Pale Skin
Here are a few main things to look for when shopping for a new bronzer.
The bronzer that’s most flattering for your pale skin will depend partly on your skin undertones. If you are cool toned and have more pink in your skin you may prefer something like Too Faced Leopard Snow which has traces of pink. If you have warm skin tones you may want to check out Tarte’s Park Avenue Princess which is a bit warmer.
Check Your Bronzer In Natural Daylight
If you have light or pale skin make sure to check your bronzer out in natural daylight once you’ve applied it since you’re more likely to look orange if the color is “off”. Your bronzer may look fine indoors but look overdone outdoors.
Shimmery Vs Matte Bronzers
Some bronzers are more shimmery while others are matte. If you just want to add warmth and color to your pale skin either will do. Matte bronzers are more natural looking and can also be used to contour. Shimmery bronzers are more glamorous looking and you may be able to skip highlighter if you are just looking for a subtle glow.
