Back-to-School Beauty: Celebrity Makeup Artist Brett Freedman Shares His Bronzing Tips

Celebrity makeup artist Brett Freedman has worked with the likes of Kelly Clarkson, Vanessa Hudgens, and Leighton Meester, and as owner of Vanitymark Cosmetics, he's one busy guy. Recently, I chatted with Freedman about simple changes we can all make when it comes to back-to-school beauty.

But who says this post goes out only to those of you headed back for a new semester? These tips apply to everyone who wants to make a few effortless steps when transitioning to cooler weather makeup. Find out how to get your bronze on now.

Keep it warm:

  • When it comes to foundation, Freedman recommends Lorac Natural Performance Foundation ($35) for a splurge and Revlon ColorStay Makeup ($13) for a drugstore find. Since a warm-weathered golden skin tone can fade as Fall approaches, he suggests mixing Bonne Bell Gel Bronze ($4-5) to your foundation to add some brightness and warmth. He keeps this old-school product in his kit for this very reason. "Use a little less as the weeks go by," he advises.
  • When it comes to bronzing, Freedman recommends Physician's Formula Baked Bronze Bronzing and Shimmery Face Powder ($12). He also likes Stila Sun Bronzing Powder ($28), as it doesn't contain excess shimmer.
  • Another way to keep the Summer glow going is to apply powder one to two tones darker than you normally would. It will give you that Marcia Brady-like glow, he quipped.

Now if only Jan would quit her whining . . .

I have to say I'm a fan of Physician's Formula Moonlight Bronzer...it's a light bronzer with yellow-gold tones which works great for those of us with very fair skin.
