Get Bronzed in Minutes With the Right Bronzer

Summer Bronzing 101
Which bronzer is best for you—the one that will look naturally bronzed in every light and keep you from having to go in the sun all summer long? Try on these different types of bronzer in our virtual makeover studio.

Moisturizing Bronzing Lotion

The sheerest of liquid formulas, moisturizing bronzing lotions have hydrating benefits. The added hint of moisturizer keeps the skin supple and the application natural looking.

Loose Bronzing Powder

For a matte bronze look, opt for a powder bronzer without shimmer. A lightly iced formula with hints of sheen will give you a dewy, glowy tan.

Pressed Bronzing Powder

This species of bronzer is perfect for the girl on the go. Powder is ideal for oily skin types and a compact allows you to tote it in your purse for touch-ups.

Liquid, Gel & Foam Bronzers

These bronzing formulas can take time to master, but they’re virtually fool-proof when mixed with a little moisturizer, which makes them glide on smoother and sheerer. Blend lightly with your fingertips or a sponge (in natural daylight) for best results.

Multi-Purpose Bronzing Sticks

Bronzing sticks generally come in cream form, making them easy to use. Make sure yours is oil-free if you’re highly sensitive or breakout prone. This type of formula is ideal for evening out tan lines or improving the sun-kissed look you already have.

Towlettes

Packaged for the maiden who hates making a mess, towlettes allow you to achieve your desired glow without getting it allover your hands. Colors range from sheer to deep, and the application is a matter of personal preference.

Blush Bronzer

This is a hybrid of a blush-bronzer (usually pinkish brown) and used as an accent to create more definition around the cheek bones. A loose version is great for creating scattered touches of bronze all-over.

I'm trying out bronzing powders for the first time. Is there a special way I'm supposed to apply it? And what do I use to apply it with? This comment has been removed.

try applying it to the areas where the sun naturally hits your face. You're trying to mimic the way a natural tan looks...so it would be the top of the forehead, the cheeks the nose, and the chin. I use a large fluffly brush to apply my bronzer...works well enough for me :). This comment has been removed.
