Right Bronzer for you:
Bronzer is used for the imitation of sun tan naturally on face but this result is only achieved if it is applied on face correctly. A minor mistake or over coat of bronzer can leads to the muddy and dirty look. Bronzer can make the shape of face thinner. The round shape face can become defined if bronzer is used in correct way. One of the main steps in using bronzer is the selection of bronzer color that should be according to your skin tone. Always pick the color of bronzer that is two shades darker than your skin tone. Always test prior on your face skin to confirm that it gives the warm shade without giving fake tanning. Honey color of bronzer is preferred for fairer complexion. Gold flecked and rose colors of bronzer are preferred for the medium skin complexion as most of the Pakistani women have medium tone complexion. Amber and tawny colors of bronze are preferred for war, or dark skin complexion. For winter season, choose two separate shades of bronzer for diminishing the pale skin due to winter.
Right Highlighter for you:
Highlighters are the products that make the look so beautiful. Choosing the right shade of highlighter is the core step for highlighting correctly. Wrong selection and application of highlighter shade can give the weird and alien like look. To choose highlighter color, first take a look on your natural skin tone, if it is sallow; do not go with pink highlighter but you have the pale skin tone then pink suits you a lot. To select the best shade of highlighter, test the highlighter on your hand’s back and blend it well. If it gives the smooth finish it is the right highlighter for you, if it sticks to your hand and give the over shinny look then try another highlighter.
