Summer is (finally!) in full swing. Layers are being shed, and one way or another, we're all trying to achieve that perfect sun-kissed glow. Makeup artist Shalini Vadhera has tips on how to look your bronzed best this season. Find out three fresh ways to wear bronzer.
We've all seen someone who overdoes the bronzer and ends up looking more Pigpen than Penelope Cruz. Bronzers tend to grab onto dry, dead skin and give off the appearance of a dirty face — especially when applied with a heavy hand. We caught up with makeup artist and bronzing aficionado Shalini Vadhera, whose biggest prebronzing recommendation was exfoliation. "It's really important to use a good face scrub at least twice a week," Vadhera said. "You need to remove any dry or dead skin and create a smooth canvas. You'll notice that your bronzer application is much smoother and more natural looking."
