Bronzers are known to give a healthy glow that our skin might need every so often, but especially in the Summer. And, with so many great ones out there designed to illuminate faces and highlight our cheekbones, it can be tricky to pick just one.
Well, problem solved here at SPICE with this week’s Tuesday 10, as we have compiled some of the best and most affordable bronzers one could buy, which you’ll find here, below;
1. Nars’ Contour Blush in “Olympia,” £30
What can we say? A blush and a contour in one easy-to use product? Nars offers and we accept. Just one sweep of this will bring life to weathered skin and the lighter shade can be used as a ray of soft shimmering light to enhance our cheekbones.
2. Topshop’s Bronzer in “Mohawke,” £9
Even though this is under £10, it doesn’t scrimp on quality at all. This is a shimmer bronzer so we advise you use with a light hand to get a lovely, warm glow to the skin.
3. Laura Mercier’s Bronzing Powder, £26
Now this is a bronzer that anyone can use, as cleverly, it adjusts to your skin’s complexion. One thing to note is to apply slightly more heavily for it to show on your face, but it bares a nice velvety texture which gives long lasting wear too, so with this, you are in good hands.
4. Urban Decay’s Baked Bronzer, £20
When Urban Decay says ‘baked,’ they really do mean baked and this bronzer will keep you looking hot for 24 hours. As well as being super long-lasting, the product’s texture ensures that it goes on smoothly – just use a good, fluffy brush to get a gorgeous sun-kissed glow.
5. Covergirl’s “Queen Collection” Bronzer, $6.63
The perfect bronzer for dark skin, this product gives a gorgeous bronzed glow for the darker complexions out there. It boasts just the right amount of shimmer to look radiant, plus it can also double as a contouring powder to provide a more defined look. Be careful of the redness though as too much product can lead to a hint of the fiery hue on skin.
6. Benefit Bronze in “One Hot Minute,” £23.50
This is one finely-milled bronzing powder, as one might tell from the sifter container it comes in. Its fine consistency also means that one sweep of this product to the face will result in a soft, buildable glow.
7. Estee Lauder’s “Bronze Goddess” Bronzer, £30
Luxury at its best, this bronzer can be used all over the body for a delicate glow and is especially good to wear when the neck and shoulders are to be exposed. Who needs the sun when you’ve got a tan in a compact?
8. Rimmel’s Natural Bronzer, £5.99
We couldn’t have thought of a better name for this bronzer, which can be used to to blend out contour powder to achieve a more natural look. Besides being made from skin-loving minerals, the cost of this product is pleasant on the pocket so anyone – amateur or professional – can use this.
9. Bobbi Brown’s Bronzing Powder, £27
A great 2-in-1 product with shades for dark skin, this beautiful bronzer by Bobbi Brown is loved for various reasons, including the fact that it can also be used to contour the face. Sweep it along cheeks and the temples for a Summer-ready look.
10. Lorac’s TANtalizer Baked Bronzer, $32
One part bronzer, one part highlighter, most of us love this product for its dual functionality. Used just right, you’ll leave skin with a luminous glow that everyone will be left wondering about once they’ve seen it. Try is and you won’t be disappointed.
