The summer beauty edit: bronzers



When it comes to summer beauty trends and key product drops there’s nothing more functional or wearable than a trusty hint of bronze: especially as it lets you feel/fake the sun even on a gloomy grey May day.

If you’re looking to add anything new into your make up bag I’d really recommend investing in or updating it with a great bronzer: it’s practically a holiday in a box. Not only will a great one lift your skin from the awkward pasty pallor of winter, giving you a (albeit faked) healthy glow for now: adding some depth and extra glow when you’ve picked up a little tan.

I’ve complied an edit of a mix of new-season and classic bronzers that are really worth their weight in gold(en glow), whether you’re after a natural post-holiday bronze or a glowy skin-sculpting contour…

First time bronzers:
If up to now it’s been all about the blush or highlight and you’ve been reluctant to delve into the world of bronzing for fear of the infamous heavy-handed streak a great place to start is with something like Guerlain’sTerracotta Bronzing Powder (£36). I purchased this for my Mum a couple of years ago as she’s always been overly cautious of bronzer's, with its feather-soft texture and minimal shimmer it’s totally fool proof. I was so impressed by her results from using it that it’s accidentally made its way into my make-up bag on more than one occasion.

Au natural:
Tom Ford’s Cream Cheek Colour (£50) is my go-to for a super natural sun-kissed look, packaged in the chic-est gold and white packaging (with the largest mirror compact you’ll ever encounter) apply to your cheeks, eyelids and temples with your fingertips to add a natural glow. To liven up a tan that’s starting to feel a little flat and fading tap a little of Tom or Benefit's Hoola Bronzer (£23.50) across the bridge of your nose and cheekbones.

Fake it:
The iconic Laguna bronzer’s now a breakthrough bronzingfluid, sleekly packaged this sheer product is versatile and not intimidating. Wear it bare or mix with makeup for an all over healthy glow: I love wearing it with a tinted tip balm and sunglasses for weekend brunches.

Body bronzer:
You can blend this dreamy three-toned Chanel compact into the hollows underneath your cheekbones with a Real Techniques blush brush (£9.99). Blend all the shades for a totally natural peachy glow before dusting across your cheeks, collarbones and tops of your shoulders.
