5 Awesome Bronzers For All Skin Tones

Contouring is finally (almost/kinda) dead; at least for summer anyway. Free you skin from the constraints of drawn-on squiggles this summer, with a dusting of bronzer.

We love this seasonal essential, for warming up our complexions and adding a hint of definition in all the right places.

These days there’s much more choice than Rimmel’s OG classic Sun Bronzer; with an array of high-tech formulas and travel-friendly options available. Here are five of our faves.

Best for Ease of Application: Milk Makeup Matte Bronzer, $24

Milk bronzer review

Although this only comes in two shades, the formula is cleverly designed to suit all skin tones. It’s a creamy formula in a fat tube, which can be built up for a more intense pigment, or sheered out for a barely-there effect. It falls mid-range on the price spectrum but, the cost-per use makes this product a great deal; and is perfect for a no-makeup makeup vibe.

Closest to Contouring: Nars Matte Multiple, £25

Nars Bronzer Review

These easy-to-blend, long-lasting sticks tend to err more on the side of a cool tone. This makes them ideal for creating shadow in the contours of your face, for a more defined finish. The stick packaging also makes targeted application a total dream.


Best For Shade Range: Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder, £30

Bobbi Brown Bronzer review

If you want a classic, workhorse, no frills bronzer, you can count on Bobbi. These are matte, but not flat, and offer a middle of the road option between intense contouring and achieving a sunkissed glow. Best of all, there are eight shades to choose from, meaning you’re guaranteed to find a match.


Best for a Glowy Finish: Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer, £45

Hourglass bronzer review

If you don’t use bronzer to sculpt or define, and prefer using it to add a hint of colour, or sun-kissed glow, look no further than Hourglass. These bronzers are swirled with their cult-classic Ambient Lighting Powders, giving skin a lit-from-within glow with a wash of pigment. There are four to choose from, and you can deepen or lighten up your application simply by targeting your brush in the pan.

Best Bargain: Revolution Bronzer Palette in All About Bronze, £5.40

Revolution bronzer review

Don’t let the name fool you – this is very much a bronzing palette. And it has shades to fit every skin tone, including two with added shimmer for a glowier vibe. For the price, you really can’t go wrong, even if you only use a couple of the shades. It’s a great travel option and can also be used on the eyes for a more natural look.
