- Amp up your foundation: Stacy Pearson-Gleason, Becca Cosmetics' national makeup artist, recommends the brand's light-reflecting Shimmering Skin Perfector in Topaz ($25), a golden bronze. "This is the product that you can use all over your face, and apply foundation over it; it will boost the color of your foundation and make it look bronzier and warmer," she explains. Also try: MAC's Bronzing Drops ($20).
- Don't just stop there: "You never want to just bronze your skin and then say you're done," advises Pearson-Gleason. Instead, add dimension by applying a cream blush in a pink or peachy tone (like Tuberose cheek and lip crème ($29) [a coral-pink]) to the cheeks. Set with powder, and then apply a powder bronzer on top. For a universally flattering hue, try the brand's Duende bronzer ($40) or Mark's Bronze Pro in Bronze ($10).
- For an easy alternative: "If you wanted to forego bronzer, you could always do a bronzy cheek cream, like Terracotta crème blush ($30) [a neutral apricot].
- Lips: Tie it all together with a poppy-pink lip color, bringing some bronze back into the mix with a beige-bronze gloss on top.
