Which to use? Bronzer or Mineral Foundation?
What’s the difference between bronzer and mineral foundation? Which should you buy? Good question. Now, I can’t speak for everyone, but my bronzer is distinctly different from my mineral foundation, and each appeals to a different clientele.
Bronzer appeals to a younger audience (although there’s always an exception). It gives you more of a sun-drenched look. Bronzer also includes quite a bit of mica, so it sparkles—not as subtle as foundation. Finally, bronzer is usually worn around the outer rim of your face and on your cheeks, not all over your face.
Foundation is designed to even out your skin tones, hide your flaws (like acne or sun spots), or deal with oily skin. You can even use the lighter shades as powder. So, if you have problem skin or aging skin, foundation is for you. Applied lightly, it can hide flaws and still look as if you aren’t wearing anything. You can’t really say that about bronzer. Bronzer says, “Look at me! I’m tanned! I’m fun! I don’t live in Ohio for most of the year!
If you can’t decide which product to buy, try them both and use them for different seasons.
And here’s the good news. They both provide some UV protection, which is important during the summer.
