A warm, bronzed glow extends further than just tanned cheeks. Here, we look at how you can use Estée Lauder's new Bronze Goddess range to capture a summery radiance from head to toe.
There are a few indicators of summer that we’ve all come to identify, from sun-filled days to the emergence of ice cream trucks, but perhaps the most recognisable of all is tanned, bronzed skin. It’s the look that defines the season, so it comes as no surprise that we’ll all be reaching for the nearest bronzing remedy. It’s the easiest way to attain a warm glow and the first step is finding the right bronzer to match for your skin tone. Whilst it may seem intimidating, it’s all about adding warmth to the skin. Generally, opt for a shade one or two tones darker than your natural tone. If you’re fairer, go for lighter rosy hues; if you have an olive complexion, copper or earthy tones will complement your skin; and if you have a deeper complexion, chocolate tones will be suit you best. Although it’s great to sculpt the face with bronzer, there are several other ways you can use it to appear more tanned, from defining your collarbone to shaping your legs. Here, we look at how you can enhance your glow-from-within with our picks from [Estée Lauder’s](https://www.fenwick.co.uk/brands/estee-lauder?srule=newest) Bronze Goddess collection. Prepare to be asked by friends and family about how your "trip to the Maldives" was.

The beauty in bronzer lies in its versatility and the Bronze Goddess Ultimate Mineral-Infused Matte Powder is formulated with a unique oil-control complex, keeping skin radiant and shine-free. Always start by thinking about areas where the sun would naturally hit. Cheekbones are always a good area and one that we tend to choose, however bronzer is also great for warming up the eyes. Take a small fluffy brush and apply a small amount to the crease, then build up as you desire. Follow by taking a larger brush and dusting bronzer along the top of your forehead, along your jawline and across your collarbones to add definition.
