Apply La Riviera Face and Body Bronzer in Cassata with the #30 Deluxe Powder Brush, moving across your forehead at the hairline (be careful not to get in hair if you have light hair). Then brush the area at temples above your eyebrows and blend into hairline, into cheek hollows, and over the bridge of your nose (or can contour, see No-Surgery Nose Job blog). Also sweep - ear to ear (on the edges of your ears) - and under the jaw. If you’re showing some skin, apply down the front of your neck, on to shoulders and the collarbone. Take it one step further and dust the arms and legs, after dressing. Any exposed skin looks better with a bit of bronze-y sparkle!
