    One for the paler girls, the Benefit Hoola Lite is the perfect way to bronze without looking too tan or going orange.

With a soft matte finish, this is the best bronzer for summer 2018 for anyone with a fair to light complexion.

    Bobbi Brown Illuminating Bronzing Powder

    Bobbi Brown’s Illuminating Bronzing Powder is one of the most versatile bronzers for the summer months we have tried. In 5 shades, with varying undertones from neutrals to pinks and darks, it’s a great choice for adding depth of colour without looking orange. In addition, the bronzers have the most beautiful shimmer running through them, which helps to add a gorgeous glow in time for the warmer weather.

    Urban Decay Beached Bronzer

    Even though the Urban Decay Beached Bronzer is a powder formulation, the actual texture feels incredibly creamy and lightweight on the skin. Melting into the skin upon application, the bronzer gives a gorgeous golden glow which can be built-up to a deeper shade of bronze if desired. Plus, it comes with a mirror included in the compact, which is perfect for on-the-go touch ups.

    Lumene Invisible Illumination Bronzer

    Since Lumene launched with us earlier this year, there’s nothing from the brand that we haven’t tried and loved. Their Invisible Illumination Bronzer is a lightweight liquid formula which melts into the skin and can be blended perfectly for a “bronze-from-within” finish. Enriched with a blend of natural ingredients such as Arctic cloudberry, it’s great for sensitive skin types that love a lighter finish and feel.

    If you love an all-in-one bronzer which adds some shimmer and a hint of rosy glow, you will love Elizabeth Arden’s Fourever Bronzing Powder. Enriched with hyaluronic acid and vitamins, the finely-milled powder helps to hydrate and soften the skin as it bronzes, making it perfect for anyone with dry and dehydrated skin.

    Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Powder Bronzer

    Name a more classic and well-known bronzer than the Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Powder Bronzer. No, we didn’t think so. This should be in everyone’s makeup bags at some point in their life thanks to its simple yet effective premise: to deliver a natural yet gorgeous and long-lasting bronze tan. We love the large pan, which is perfect for sweeping a large fluffy brush into and getting an all-over golden glow.
