Ah bronzer. When used correctly, it can take you to a whole new level, "I just got back from vacation and I'm so healthy and glowing" gorgeous. But, if it goes wrong, it goes so, so wrong. Like, Pig Pen wrong. Not that we don't love the Peanuts character, but that's not what we're aiming for on a day-to-day basis. We broke down the best way to bronze yourself, for your convenience, because we love our MIMI fans and always want you to look your most gorgeous.

Here's how to get the look:

1. Choose a brush.

2. Apply bronzer along the hairline, temples, cheeks, jawline

3. Blend down your neck.
