It seems that lately, every time someone asks me for a product recommendation, it's always for bronzers. The requests are always the same too... "I'm looking for something that looks natural," "I don't want to look orange," and "nothing too shimmery." Seems simple enough, and yet a lot of women still have trouble finding the right tone and texture. Most brands carry a range of colors to suit different complexions, but I always suggest trying the lightest shade first. Throughout the day, your bronzer can deepen in color, caused by the oil production in your skin. By using a lighter shade than you think you'll need, you will avoid that "dirty" bronzer look. Just remember, you're trying to create the look of being sun-kissed, not an overall tan.
Here are some of the best bronzing powders that have made it into my makeup kit, with great options for every budget.
What's your favorite bronzer?
