Whether you choose to contour, powder, or simply use it to brighten up your entire visage, a bronzer is a must-have in every makeup kit.
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.
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!
Budget: Butter London Bit Faker Cream Bronzer, $24
Luxury: Burberry Beauty ‘Warm Glow’ Natural Bronzer, $69.80
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.
Budget: Bourjois Maxi Delight Bronzer, $24
Luxury: Nars Bronzing Powder in Laguna, $49
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.
Budget: Essence Sun Club Shimmer Bronzing Powder, $6.15
Luxury: Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel, $67
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.
Budget: The Body Shop Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder in Shade 04, $22.95
Luxury: Chantecaille Radiance Gel Bronzer, $74
