Best Bronzers

Using bronzer is one of the best ways to illuminate your complexion and define your facial features. However, choosing the right bronzer depends on your skin tone, as it’s essential that you use the right one that complements it. Here are some of the best bronzers for different skin tones.

For medium, warm and olive skin tones

For these skin tones, bronzers can give you an instant boost and sun-kissed glow because these skin types have yellow and golden undertones. Don’t overdo it though, otherwise you’ll end up looking orange. Opt for bronzers that are natural-looking when applied to the skin, such as the Becca Sunlit Bronzer in Bronzed Bondi and the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer in Luminous Bronze Light.

For pale skin

If you’re looking for the right bronzer for pale skin, then there are many options available and you can choose from a selection of light bronzers. Use bronzers such as the Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder in Shade 1 or the Nars Sun Wash Diffusing Bronzer in Seaside. Gently apply to specific areas of the face, such as the cheekbones, forehead and the chin.

For dark skin

Some people think that bronzers aren’t suitable for dark-skinned women, but that’s not true. However, if you use a bronzer that is not suitable for dark skin, then you could end up looking muddy, ashy, chalky or orange. Aim to use bronzers with pigmented hues and shimmery tones, such as the Perricone MD No Bronzer Bronzer or the Nars Bronzing Powder in Casino.
