Summertime is just the moment for bronzer. It can brighten up your face, add a touch of summer glow and flatter your features.
However, the wrong shade of bronzer can look muddy and dull. Those with us with pale or dark skin tones can often struggle to find the right bronzer and become a little scared of it. We want to change that by giving you our tips for finding the best bronzer for your skin tone.
For Pale Skin
For those with more alabaster skin tones, finding a bronzer to add colour without looking clownish can be tough.
The key to getting that sun-kissed glow without the orange oompa-loompa effect is to move away from brown and orange based bronzers, to ones with a gold or pink undertone. This tends to look much more subtle on paler skin, blending beautifully and naturally.
Some of our favourites are the Lancôme Star Bronzer in Natural Dorée, Living Nature’s Summer Bronze Powder and the Elizabeth Arden Sunset Bronze Prismatic Bronzing Powder (the limited edition packaging has us swooning too).
