When it comes to stepping up your makeup game, you might wonder which is better, bronzer or contour? The thing is, it might be hard to figure out which one would work best for your personal routine (or if you should be using both!). Bronzer and contour are two very versatile products, and Hanalei Company is here to help clear the air on both of them.
Should I use bronzer or contour?
Bronzer is generally used to help bring out the natural warmth in your skin, while contour is usually used to help accentuate certain facial features or hide those you want to bring less attention to. Oftentimes, though, they are applied to similar areas of the face, specifically your cheekbones. Use bronzer to help bring out the warmth in these areas for a soft sun-kissed look, and contour to help define these areas for a more structured look that stands out!
Can you use a bronzer as a contour?
Hanalei’s Bronzer is a universal matte shade that is perfect for bringing out the beachy warmth you’ve been looking for, but can it double as a contour? The answer is yes! Bronzer works great as a warm contour to help you naturally define those facial features you want to stand out just a little more.
Where do you put bronzer and contour on your face?
We now know that contour is used to define facial features, and bronzer is used to bring out warmth, but where exactly should you apply it? Hanalei’s Bronzer is perfect for either technique, but if you want to use it as a contour, apply it to your forehead, cheekbones, and going down toward your chin to bring out the areas your face would naturally be shadowed by the sun. To use it as a bronzer, you’ll apply it in the same places, but focusing on areas like the cheekbones where natural warmth would normally show!
How much bronzer should I use?
You don’t need to use a lot to get that warm glow! Simply swirl your brush in the bronzer before applying for a smooth application of this lightweight, looks-good-on-everyone powder sure to make you feel like you just stepped off the beach.
What color should I use?
When it comes to choosing a bronzer color, Hanalei has made it super simple: this bronzer is universal! No need to try to find a color that looks perfect on you—Hanalei’s Bronzer is perfect for any skin tone to help unlock that naturally warm look you’ve been dreaming of, just in time for summer.
