Life isn’t fair, and your clients’ skin needn’t be, either—especially in summer.

Help your clients indulge their inner Coppertone baby by dusting their skin with powder bronzers or by dabbing a bit of liquid bronzer in all the right places.

While seasons past championed flat, all-over bronzing, the newest faux glow is based more on strategic placement. Concentrate shading along the forehead, bridge of the nose, chin and apples of the cheeks to keep the look natural and healthy.
