✔ Matt bronzer
✔ For a sunkissed look
✔ Also for sensitive and acne prone skin
✔ With adaptogen ginseng
This bronzer does not contain shimmers and was developed by ZAO for darker skin types. Lighter skin types that want to darken their already tanned skin could also use this bronzer to further enhance their tan.
In contrast to the bronzer for lighter skin types, you don’t have to pay attention to where you apply this bronzer
A nice sun-kissed look is possible for anyone with the ZAO bronzers. Even sensitive and acne prone skin. ZAO never uses materials or ingredients of petrochemical origin and always chooses for the natural, healthier alternative.
Some of the key ingredients of this matt bronzer include micronized bamboo powder, squalene and ginseng.
Lighter skin types get a refreshing sun kissed look when applying the bronzing powder such as the gold/copper powder or the darker gold/bronze powder from ZAO. For darker skin types, ZAO has developed a matt bronzer.
For a sun kissed look, apply the bronzer in a ‘3’ shape on both sides of the face:
You should apply the bronzer to your facial contours, where you tan the fastest, to create the sun kissed effect you’re are looking for: on your forehead, on your cheekbones and on your jawline.
Step 1: Start at the top of your forehead by your hairline.
Step 2: Move downwards and move the brush towards the lowest line of your cheekbones (just slightly underneath your cheekbone).
Step 3: Finish off by applying the bronzer onto your jawline. You should now have moved the brush in “3” shape-like movement.
Step 4: For a final touch, you can apply the bronzing powder to your nose. For a longer nose, it is best to apply the powder directly on the top of the nose; for a wider nose, it is best to apply the powder on both sides of the nose.
Prevent ‘stains’ by checking whether your skin does not have any ‘sticky’ patches. Foundation or moisturizer can often create ‘sticky’ areas on your face, meaning the bronzer will stick there excessively in comparison to the rest of your face.
Apply the bronzer with a wide powder brush or a bronzer brush on the areas of the face which tan the fastest (your facial contours). A wider brush creates a more subtle effect because less bronzer is applied.
This bronzing powder (Mineral Cooked Powder from ZAO) gives your face stronger features. A fresh look and healthy glow are the result of applying this bronzer.
How to apply this bronzer?
Make a 3 shape with the bronzer on both sides of your faces.
Apply the bronzer to your facial contours, the areas where you would tan the fastest, to create that ‘sun kissed’ effect you are looking for. Start at the top of the forehead by your hairline. Move downwards and along your cheekbone. It is best to apply bronzer just slightly below your cheekbone (on the lowest line). Finish off by moving your bronzer brush along your jawline.
For finishing touches you can apply bronzer to your nose. For a longer nose, it is best to apply the bronzer to the top of the nose; for a wider nose, it is best to apply the bronzer on the sides of the nose.
