How to use bronzing drops?

Bronze like a champion with bronzing drops from Ulta Beauty! They're the perfect way to achieve a natural, bronze glow that will last all day long.

Get Glowing:

Here are two ways to use bronzing drops to create your desired look:

  • Sheer and Subtle: Mix 1-2 drops with your favorite moisturizer for a hint of bronze that evens out your skin tone. This is perfect for a no-makeup day or a natural base for other makeup.
  • Buildable Bronze: Apply 1-2 drops directly to your fingertips and blend them onto the areas where the sun naturally kisses your face. Ulta Beauty offers a wide range of stippling and buffing makeup brushes to ensure a flawless, streak-free application.

Extra Tips for a Polished Look:

  • Start Small: Remember, a little goes a long way with bronzing drops. We recommend starting with a single drop and building up for the perfect level of bronze.
  • Buff it Out: Use a damp makeup sponge for a sheer, airbrushed finish.

What is the best way to apply metallic eyeshadow?

Channel your Olympic spirit with medal-worthy metallic eyes from Ulta Beauty!

Here are some key application techniques to achieve your Olympic-inspired metallic eyeshadow look, all using Ulta Beauty's award-winning selection of products:

  • Prime for Victory: Ensure your look lasts through all the cheering! Apply a layer of eyeshadow primer to create a smooth canvas for your metallic shadow. This will prevent creasing and boost color intensity.
  • Essential Brushes: Pack on color with a flat eyeshadow brush. Use a gentle pressing motion to apply pigmented metallic shadows for maximum color payoff. Next, use a fluffy blending brush to soften edges and create seamless transitions between your metallic eyeshadow and other colors.
  • Dampen Up the Drama: Spritz your flat brush with setting spray or water (just damp, not soaking) before picking up a metallic shadow. This intensifies the color and makes application smoother.
  • Line & Define: Complete your look with eyeliner. Choose black, brown, or even a metallic shade to complement your eyeshadow, adding a touch of definition.
