"If you're going for a natural tan rather than a party look, don't use a bronzer that's too shiny or glittery," advises Lisa. "You can always add highlighter on your upper cheek bones (apply from the outer corner of your eye towards your hair line) and under your brow afterwards if you want a stronger look."
Bronzers don't just come in 'bronze' - there's a huge range of shades, so experiment and find the right one for your skin tone. "They come in reddy oranges, bright oranges and glittery gold oranges, but also lovely tawny natural colours as well," says Lisa. "Look for something that's only a couple of shades deeper than your natural colour to really warm up your face. If the colour is too strong once it's applied, blend with a cotton wool disc."
