Say no to orange stripes. Say non to cheeks sparkling like they’ve been mined for gold. It’s a nein from me to a white face painted brown, for many reasons, one of which is “bad application of bronzer”. Bronzer, used well, does magical things at this time of year. Used well, brushed on with a big round brush (Nars, 42, 0800 123 400) rather than the piddly little ones that come in the box, it suggests you’ve been on a lovely languorous holiday rather than frantically making yourself up in the downstairs loo. Try Laura Mercier’s Dune Bronze (26, lauramercier.com) or Benefit’s Hoola (23.50, benefitBeauty products.co.uk). And aim for a subtle shimmer or matte finish – no glitter here, ta.
