Stripping is the new strobing

Get a sun-kissed look with this 1-minute bronzer hack!

We’re all acquainted with the ‘3’ method of applying bronzers. No clue? It basically means drawing the number three on your face – start from your forehead to the apple of your cheek with a final stroke on your jawline. Now we have a new, easy way to get that sun-kissed look spotted at DSquared2 and Moschino: Stripping. No, it doesn’t involve taking your clothes off. Here’s how it works:

Use a non-shimmer bronzer and a flat face brush. Notice where the sunlight falls on your face i.e. your cheekbones and at the bridge of your nose (hint: these are also areas you would otherwise apply your highlighter on). Take some product on your brush and tap off any excess to avoid that fake-tan-gone-wrong look. Draw a strip across the apples of your cheeks, and glide over your nose too. Gently blend it by buffing the edges, and you’re set!
