Pssst! Want to get a head start on summer? The answer is bronzers! Give yourself that mid-season sunshiny glow before the hot months even arrive. Here are five of the best bronzers. —Jennifer Cox
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer ($68) has both bronzer and lighting powder with bronze pigments to add depth and dimension for a natural, sun-kissed glow. The sheer, airy formula sweeps on softly for a healthy-looking, radiant finish.
Ideal for more fair skin tones, the Airbrush Bronzer from Charlotte Tilbury ($65) creates the appearance of a soft, Mediterranean sun-kissed complexion with just one application. The award-winning formula smoothes lines and pores for a flawless look.
The O!mega Bronze coconut perfect tan bronzer from Marc Jacobs Beauty ($34) comes in three flattering hues and has a light coconut scent. The buttery, not-flat matte bronzer adds instant warmth to any complexion without looking dry or too shimmery.
Get your hands on this limited-edition Sunkissed Bronzing Cream ($50) from NARS. The cream-to-powder bronzing hybrid has a beautiful soft-matte finish, minimizes the appearance of pores and evens out the complexion. It’s also scented with NARS’ signature French Polynesian Monoï de Tahiti oil.
Chocolate Soleil Bronzer ($40) is as delicious as it sounds. This bronzer from Too Faced is one of the brand’s bestsellers for a reason: the cocoa-powder-infused long-wearing matte bronzers smell as good as they look. Achieve a rich, buildable tan with long lasting eight-hour wear.
