Bronzer can be yough to figure out, but it's actually really easy to apply if you know how to do it. 

This tip was requested by @call-me-kate

1. Choose a bronzer that is a few shades darker than your usual tone, but doesn't look like a fake tan. I usually use Covergirl or Neutrogena. 
♦Pink toned bronzers usually look better on blondes while orange tones tend to look better on brunettes.

2. Use a wide fluffy rounded brush to make sure that the powder goes on evenly.

3. Don't apply foundation before bronzer, because it might make you skin look muddy. Apply a base powder, this keeps the bronzer from streaking.

4. Apply bronzer to the areas of the face the sun would natually hit. Make sure that the bronzer is evenly applied on the brush, and use light strokes.
♦Apply to the top of the forehead first, work down the nose, and then along your cheeks. Again, use light strokes so you can get the exact shade you're looking for. If you want, apply a bit to your chin as well.

5. Using a window, or by going outside, check your bronzer in natural light. This is to make sure that there are no streaks and that you didn't apply too heavily. If it's a bit streaky, use a cotton pad to even it out.

Good luck!
