A matte bronzer is often a powder. Although this bronzer won’t
add any shine to your look, you will have glorious dark hues of color and will look as though you just vacationed in an island paradise. A matte bronzer is perfect if you want to look like you’ve been in the sun—without, you know, the actual sun! Matte bronzer should be applied to areas of the face that would normally be exposed to the sun. To apply, choose makeup brushes designed for powder bronzer application…like Palladio’s Bronzer Brush. While matte bronzer adds a deeper flush to the face, bronzer won’t take the place of blush. So, yes, you can still use blush over bronzer (but don’t bronze over blush…that will cover the blush flush). You may need a darker shade of blush, however, to complement the darker hue of your new bronze complexion!
If you want a bronze goddess look that glows, then choose a
baked bronzer. Palladio’s Baked Bronzer has a subtle sheen when you apply it in powder form. While it isn’t as strobe-like brilliant as a highlighter, Baked Bronzer illuminates the skin with a gorgeous glow. And this bronzer also can be applied wet for a deeper hue with a slight glow. If you use our Baked Bronzer dry, use the Bronzer Brush for an even application. Touch up your look throughout the day with oil absorbing sheets like our Rice Paper.
