Makeup Before and After: What a Difference Bronzer Makes

I’ve been taking my camera along with me more often these days to capture my client’s before and after shots which they say the same thing to every time, “Can’t you just take an after????”

What fun would that be?

Whitney didn’t care, but why would she? She’s young and adorable. It’s all good when you don’t have any wrinkles.

My camera not only served as a witness to the transformations that day, but it also showed me that I needed to bronze her up. Her tanned skin was darker on her body and a few shades lighter on her face. Even though the daylight shifted in between the last two after photos I took (there was about a 2 hour difference), you can still see how needed the flash of color was to her overall look. Let’s check it out-

And after – pretty, but not enough bronzer to warm her skin and bring it to the same tone as her chest.


Click to enlarge- I don’t know why it’s so much smaller than the others. Can you can see how much better her face matches her chest.

Use a bronzer without shimmer for photography, the one I used on her was Jouer actually. I have it in my kit for most medium or deeper skin tones, for more fair skin I carry Estée Lauder’s Bronze Lights in the compact’s lighter shade. Either way, apply the bronzer with a loose, fluffy brush to avoid a dense application and make ‘number 3′s’ like shown in this video from Lauder below.
