When we think of bronzer, we think of NARS Laguna.

A long-time cult beauty staple, NARS' signature Laguna Bronzing Powder continues to be the bronzer of choice for beauty editors, makeup artists and beauty lovers alike.

Finely milled with a subtle shimmer running through, the NARS Laguna Bronzer creates the ultimate healthy glow. Designed to flatter every skin tone, the rich golden shade adds warmth to the complexion for a healthy, sun-kissed finish.

Francois Nars, founder and artistic director at NARS, notes he was 'very precise with the amount of shimmer' he used in the best-selling formula, as he wanted to 'create an effect that made you look radiant and natural'.

The result is a beautiful golden bronzer with a subtle shimmer which enhances your natural radiance whilst adding a beautiful sun-kissed glow to your complexion.

Perfect for all skin tones, NARS Laguna is equally flattering on very pale and deep skin. Unlike many other bronzing powders, Laguna does not appear too orange or too green on the skin, making it the perfect, natural-looking golden hue.

The ultra-finely milled formula allows the bronzer to blend seamlessly into the skin, diffusing the look of lines and pores for a smooth, more even, glowing complexion.

For a gorgeous all over sun-kissed glow, apply Laguna with a the NARS Cosmetics Powder Brush. Swirl you brush in the product and lightly dust the bronzing powder over your forehead, cheeks, the bridge of your nose and your chin - the places the sun naturally hits.

Can you use NARS Laguna to contour?

Although NARS Laguna makes a beautiful all over glow, it can also be used to sculpt the face and add definiton. It's neutral golden hue makes it perfect for creating depth and definition in the contours of your face.

For contouring, opt for a tapered, more precise brush to apply Laguna. The NARS Cosmetics Kabuki Yachiyo Brush is softly tapered to perfectly sit in the contours of your face for precise application and seamless blending. Simply pick up some of the product and blend underneath your cheekbones, onto your temples and just below your jawline.

NARS Laguna Liquid Bronzer

If you prefer the look and feel of cream and liquid products on your skin, the NARS Laguna Liquid Bronzer is perfect for a more natural, skin-like glow. The sheer, golden liquid glides across the skin, adding a subtle, sun-kissed radiance to your complexion.

The Laguna Liquid Bronzer can be blended with your moisturiser or foundation for a subtle golden glow or applied directly onto your skin for a more intense bronzed look.

Perfect as a final touch to your makeup, the Laguna Liquid Bronzer adds a beautiful glow to your skin, adding some much needed radiance to the complexion.
