Hi. I'm Erin Hendley, professional makeup artist, and today I'm here to answer your question, what's a cheap, but good bronzer. There's actually a lot of good bronzers out there and the main key that you want to focus in when considering what a good bronzer is, is A is it orange or is it actually brown so you can contour with it. That's what a good quality is. And also something that's a little more matte and not shimmery. Shimmers good for younger children, but when we get older we really just want to deal with something that looks like actual skin. So we have the Bahama Momma right here and it really has this great color which is a bronzer. It comes with a natural blush and a highlight as well. But it reads very well in the skin color. As we see it's matte and it's going to blend in nicely. It's going to just add some dimension without being too harsh and noticeable. We want our dimensions and contours to look seamless. So what we're going to do with our great bronzer is just dust it over the necessary areas. Really just contour and bring out and carve the face great features that she has. Start back by the ear. And as you can see it's not noticeable and it's not orange. We don't want to do that look unless you're portraying someone in a costume. We really just want it to be seamless and natural. And a little bit goes a long way because when we step it out into daylight it's going to read a little more harsh. So my best advice is to apply a little bit on. An angled brush works best. And always dust some off on your hand. We always want to get the excess off before we really just load it on. So we're just doing light wisps. So apply what you think is needed, probably a little less and then step out into the light and make sure that you stick to those two rules, that it's matte and that it's not orange. I'm Erin Hendley, and I just showed you an example of a good but cheap bronzer.
