Hi, I'm Jeffrey Paul, celebrity makeup artist. And today, I'm going to show you how to use bronzer. As a makeup artist, we usually use bronzers to warm up the face, sculpt up the face, show definition, and make the face look radiant. Today's bronzer's going to be Fit Me Bronzer by Maybelline. The Fit Me Bronzer is a very nice translucent bronzer. You can either use the brush that comes with it, or a softer powder brush. If you look at the cheekbone, it has a nice curvature, it's not a straight line. So, I'm actually going to follow the curvature. This is going to give shape, definition, and contour to the cheek underneath, in the front, and slightly on the top. The bronzer's going to warm up the skin, and give a glow, and also sculpt out the face, giving more definition and shape. The bronzer has a little bit of gold in it, and the gold is actually going to reflect and give you a nice glow. Notice where I'm applying it. I'm applying it where the sun would naturally hit. When you're standing in the sun, the sun comes down and hits you on top of the head. It hits you on the cheekbones, maybe sometimes the bridge of the nose, and sometimes on the chin. Because this bronzer is light and sheer, and actually lets your skin shine through, you can layer it up. You can add as much as you need, building intensity, color, and shine. So, when you're looking at the whole face, you also want to hit the other places the sun hits as well. If you're wearing an open shirt like Tracy is, maybe on the collarbone, maybe down along the neck, maybe under the chin. Under the chin, and actually along the jawline gives you shape, contour, definition, and a beautiful glow all over. There you go. That's how you use bronzer. I'm Jeffrey Paul, thank you for watching.
