After much discussion and examination, we at T+P decided that we definitely prefer matte bronzers to shimmery ones. The reason being that shimmer catches the light, and so is not ideal for contouring. According to the experts at MAC, to really bring out your summer bronzey contour, it’s best to use a matte bronzer followed by a sweep of shimmery blush or highlighter along the cheek bones, down the center of the nose, in the inner corners of the eyes, and at your cupid’s bow.
