Nothing screams “beach babe” more than bronzed cheeks:
The latest makeup trend for the year is called “Bronzer Stripping” which means applying bronzer across the cheeks and nose area—where the sun would naturally hit—to create that faux summer glow.
It’s definitely different from contouring, because this doesn’t aim to recede parts of the face to change your natural face shape. The goal of stripping is to make you look like you just spent hours under the sun!
To nail the look, all you have to do is grab a matte or not-so-shimmery bronzer and sweep across your cheeks and nose area. Make sure to blend it properly with a fluffy face brush for a more natural look—and be sure to pick products that will suit your skin tone.
When selecting bronzers, consider the shade when you swatch it on your face. If you get something that’s too dark, you might end up looking dirty, not glowing.
We think this trend is A+. Sun-kissed cheeks without the risk of sun damage? We’re sold.
