10 Best Bronzers

A good bronzer can be the difference between a bright, glowing complexion and lacklustre skin. Whether you want to add a pop of colour to your face, lightly define your features or enhance a natural tan, this makeup must-have promises a gorgeous glow whatever the occasion. But with so many on the market, it can be difficult to know where to begin. That’s why we have rounded up the 10 best bronzers suitable for every concern.

Cream Bronzer

Though we are unsure whether the humble powder bronzer could ever be replaced, Cream Bronzers do pose a considerable threat to their sovereignty. Creamy, rich and easy to blend, their unique properties make them the perfect companion for the warmer months. Unlike powder bronzers, cream bronzers don’t contain much shimmer but instead, provide a healthy, dewy glow thanks to their creamy consistency. Perfect for use over liquid foundations, cream bronzers will ensure a sun-kissed glow without looking too heavy on the skin.

Best Matte Bronzer

A subtle shimmer, glowing complexion and defined features are what have turned Matte bronzers into the cult classic they are today.
