Before You Get Your Bronze On, Make Sure You Scrub Up

Before You Get Your Bronze On, Make Sure You Scrub Up

We've all seen someone who overdoes the bronzer and ends up looking more Oompa Loompa that they'd like. 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 pre-bronzing 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." Keep from looking like you've been playing in the dirt and shop exfoliating facial scrubs below before you get your bronze on.
