Keen to emulate that effortlessly luminous makeup look as modelled by your favourite, ultra-glamourous celebs? Leave the blusher for another day – the secret to achieving this natural aesthetic is applying bronzer makeup instead. Bronzer is all about the natural, healthy glow of a sun-kissed skin as opposed to the heavier and more dramatic colour of a blush. To save you the trouble of spending hours doing your own research, we’ve hand-picked four of the best bronzers for you to try.
NYX Professional Makeup Matte Bronzer
The luxurious NYX Professional Makeup Matte Bronzer comes in five stunning shades including Light, Medium, Deep, Deep Tan, and Dark Tan. The lightweight powder provides you with even coverage and a natural, sun-kissed glow. It also doubles up as a body bronzer!
Lancôme Belle De Teint Natural Glow Powder
Anti-fatigue Lancôme Belle De Teint Natural Glow Powder leaves you looking refreshed even if you didn’t get as much beauty sleep as you’d have liked the night before. It comes in 8 different shades, making it easy to find the perfect one for you, and it also incorporates blurring technology to visibly reduce unsightly pores. Arguably the best bronzer for contouring, regardless of your skin tone or hair colour.
Urban Decay Beached Bronzer
Silky-smooth Urban Decay Beached Bronzer is the go-to bronzer for achieving that golden goddess, ‘just-spent-two-weeks-on-the-beach’ look. The formula is 100% vegan and has been finely milled to allow for smoother application, and HPP (Highlighter Performing Pigments) Technology promises a richer colour to further enhance your complexion.
Maybelline Face Studio Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter
Pearly Maybelline Face Studio Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter makes it so easy to get that dewy glow. Designed to recreate a mesmerising molten metal sheen, it’s easy to apply and guaranteed to last. Real pearl pigments promise a shimmer unlike any other.
So, there you have it. Bronzer makeup at its best. Here’s to perfectly defined features and a warm honey glow throughout the seasons. Happy contouring, ladies!
