When using powdered bronzers, diffuse the colour to soften its pigments by sweeping onto the back of your hand first. This helps you get a light tint of the bronzer without messing up your face. Plus, it’s also easier to layer on rather than try to blend it over and over to reduce the darkness.
Shimmer, not matte
