Choose your perfect shade of bronzer

Since All Hours Hyper Bronze can be used to bronze the complexion, sculpt the features, and blur imperfections, it's vital to get a natural color for your skintone.

Shade-match your All Hours Hyper Bronze

With a range going from fair to deep, there's a shade of Hyper Bronze for everybody.
- First, discover whether your skintone falls under light, medium, or dark
- Then, decide if you're cool, neutral, or warm
- If you know your YSL Beauty All Hours Foundation shade match, you'll already have a recommendation for your bronzer shade
- Try the recommended bronzer shade along the cheekbones, browbone, and jawline
- Ensure it doesn't look too warm (yellow/orange) or too cool (grey) against your skin

Try on shades with just one click, on the go.

Master the art of bronzer placement

These days, it's hard to know whose instructions to follow in order to get the perfect placement of your bronzer. For a flawless base, start with a blurring primer, a longwear foundation, concealer where needed, and a setting or mattifying powder.

With these steps achieved, learn how to apply your bronze to lift the complexion and get a natural, sunkissed glow.

Warm up your features

- Warm-toned bronzer is traditionally used in a C-shape or a 3-shape on the sides of the face
- Use a fluffy brush, such as the Hyper Brush, to apply on the cheekbones in an upward movement
- Softly apply the remaining product on your brush to the nose for a sunkissed look
- Don't forget the hairline – glide a small amount of bronzer along your forehead and hairline for seamless application

Sculpt your face

- Achieve an easy contour with a more neutral or cool-toned bronzer by shifting your placement
- Squeeze the bristle of your Hyper Brush for a smaller, denser applicator
- Apply beneath the cheekbones, the chin, and jawline to create shadows and dimension
- Blend across the forehead, sweeping towards the hairline

The secrets behind All Hours Hyper Bronze's hydrating longwear formula

Hyper Bronze powder is powered by skincare, and infused with 90% natural-origin ingredients, for a breathable and seamless wear, all day.
- Hyaluronic acid keeps the skin comfortable and smooth
- Niacinamide has skin enhancing benefits
- Limetta extract from YSL Beauty Ourika Community Gardens adds further non-drying properties

A hydrating finish for comfortable wear

Keeping your skin bronzed and sculpted all day doesn't have to mean layers of makeup products. All Hours Hyper Bronze bronzing powder allows you to enhance your complexion for 24 hours without fading, or shifting. Its soft, matte finish is non-drying, so your skin will feel as healthy as it looks.

Solving common bronzer problems

If you're used to your bronzer looking muddy or heavy, try a light, fluffy brush with a well-matched shade, and sweep in light strokes on the high points. Don't try to create significantly darker areas of the face.

Are you used to your bronzer wearing off quickly and your skin imperfections showing through? Build light layers of longwear makeup such as YSL Beauty's All Hours foundation and Hyper Bronze powder for a flawless, lasting base, without drying out the skin.

Finally, when you've gone in too heavy with your bronzer, correct it by gently buffing your foundation or concealer brush around the edges, blending in some light blush, or tapping in some setting powder.

Other ways to use your Hyper Bronze bronzing powder

There are countless ways to use your bronzer throughout your makeup look.

Here's our favourite way to make the most of Hyper Bronze's moisturising finish: if you're not usually a lip liner wearer, but you're curious about creating a plumper pout, use an eye shadow brush to lightly pat some bronzer at the top and bottom of your mouth, before going in with your favorite lip combo.
