To find a shade which matches your skin tone, refer to our guide below to help you find a match made in heaven. With summer just around the corner, it’s time to fake it ’til you make it with a skin-loving bronzer for all budgets.

Fair skin

Choosing a bronzer for fair skin can often feel like a never-ending battle, especially if you have pink undertones to your skin. Look for a formula which won’t leave your skin looking too yellow, and always swatch the product before purchasing – just in case!

Light skin

A lighter skin tone usually boasts warmer undertones when compared to someone who is fair, usually with a yellow undertone. A cream bronzer is a great idea since it melts flawlessly into the skin without any visible harsh lines.

Olive skin

Any type of olive skin tone is usually characterised by a soft, bronzed glow – especially in the summer time! You can use a variety of products to suit this skin tone, especially cream formulas which suit those combination skin types.

Dark skin

It’s sometimes difficult to trace down a bronzer for darker skin tones which doesn’t make the skin look like a disco ball! Choose a matte finish without the shimmery particles – leave this to your highlight instead.
