Everyone loves a sun-kissed glow! It makes your skin look flawless, clothes appear more vibrant, and even your teeth give the impression of being whiter! Yet, unless you are blessed with an all-year-round gorgeous golden glow, maintaining your desired tan can be very time consuming, pricey, and unreliable. This is why you need to discover our best bronzer beauty hacks!
Best Bronzer Beauty Hacks
To achieve your desired bronzed status, you usually need access to at least one of the following things: a beach, a pool, a tanning salon…the list goes on and on. Along with these prime tanning locations, you need a proper tanning lotion or oil, matched accordingly to your preferred indoor or outdoor use. Once you have secured that spot and your tan enhancer, unless you are using the bed, you have to coordinate with the sun! Just when you think you have it all figured out, you must then find the time to maintain your tan. With all this coordinating, much like a tan, one can start to feel a little burnt-out.
Luckily, we live in a world where make-up can help you achieve a beloved tan look with just a few buffs of a brush! Even when I feel like my skin is white as snow, there is one product I can trust to give my skin life…Bronzer! Bronzer is a gift from the sun gods so you too can look like you have been kissed by the sun! Today, I am sharing my top favorite bronzers that take my complexion from snow to glow…like woah!
Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer
The Butter Bronzer is in a category all on its own! Almost like velvet, its texture is so creamy that it literally applies like buttaaah. With an included sponge-like applicator, this bronzer glides effortlessly across your face and gorgeously melts into your skin.
The shade is beautiful, producing a stunning color for a flawless natural tan look. The best part? This bronzer smells like a tropical paradise! It’s a delicious mixture of suntan oil and pina coladas! I’ll take two, please…of the butter bronzers that is! *wink*
MAC Luster Drops
The MAC Luster Drops are a great way to add a subtle glow to your complexion. I love to mix 3-4 drops in with my foundation and apply like normal. These drops add the perfect touch of tint to my foundation when my face might be a little lighter than the rest of my body. “Luster” lives up to its name by radiating an iridescent shimmer and the finished product is just so pretty!
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Powder
MAC makes some of the best bronzing powders that literally lasts for-ev-er! Their bronzer is a perfect everyday bronzer that doesn’t come off too orange or dark when applied to the skin. The thing that intrigued me the most about this powder is that, like how we bake in the sun, this bronzer was baked, too! Yep, it went through a cool mineral baking process that helped it achieve its light, effortless color and feel. All I can say is that I bought this gem years ago and it still gives me that tan with a plan! *snap*
Benefit produces a gorgeous, flawless bronzer called HOOLA. It comes in two natural shades, HOOLA and HOOLA LITE, with a buildable matte finish to achieve your desired bronzey-ness. Much like the MAC Luster Drops, I like to add a drop or two of the HOOLA “Zero Tanlines” to my foundation for a little bit of color, as well. Believe me; you will want to spend some moo-la on this HOOLA when you try this signature bronzer out for yourself!
Coastal Scents Blush and Bronzer Mini Palette
Coastal Scents has this blush and bronzer mini palette and I am reeeally loving it! The bronzers are subtle, but they still give you just the right amount of color. The pressed powders have a velvet consistency that helps you get that light, natural glow. Achieve that “coastal” bronzed look by adding this palette to your tropical collection!
Your best bronzer can do the face riiiiight! I personally love being able to get that tropical look, without having to go all the way to the tropics! (But, hey, that doesn’t sound like too bad of an idea! *wink*) From powders, to drops, to cream bases, all these beauty bronzers are perfect for the faux glow tanned look!
