A Pro’s Guide To Expert Cream Bronzer Application

Just like blush, a nude lipstick and a skin-perfecting concealer, bronzer is a must-have in every makeup bag. While powder bronzer has historically been the go-to for makeup artists and beauty enthusiasts alike, cream bronzer is quickly rising up the ranks as the formula favorite.

Cream bronzer provides a natural-looking bronzy glow, no matter the season. It’s also relatively easy to apply even for bronzer beginners and blends beautifully into the skin. "Cream-based products, in general, add more of a dewy look, and blend well on top of foundation," says Marsha Page, a New York-based makeup artist known as The Melanin Therapist. Cream bronzers also work particularly well for people with dry and dehydrated skin, whereas powder bronzers can appear blotchy on these skin types, she notes.  

Interested in adding cream bronzer into your makeup routine, or upping your bronzer game? Below, Page walks us through her top tips for using bronzer like a pro.

"Cream-based products, in general, add more of a dewy look, and blend well on top of foundation.”

"It's important to tread lightly and not overdo it, as you want the skin to have a natural sun-kissed appearance.”
