Whether you have a pale, medium or olive skintone, it always feels good to add a bit of bronze to your beauty regime during the summer months. Here is our edit for the best in bronze.
BOBBI BROWN SHIMMER NAIL POLISH PINK PEARL
This elegant colour is very flattering and taps into the ever-popular rose gold trend – with a subtle shimmer, it will compliment sun-kissed skin beautifully.
GUERLAIN TERRACOTTA SKIN FOUNDATION
A great foundation for giving a healthy glow, this will help achieve a radiant coverage as well as a bronzed effect. We love the matte finish it gives.
CHANEL SOLEIL TAN DE CHANEL SHEER ILLUMINATING FLUID
A gorgeous highlighter for giving a subtle sun-kissed effect to the skin, this product smells amazing too. Blend it along the high points of the cheek and brow bones, down your nose and along your cupid’s bow for a beautiful sheen.
REVLON PHOTOREADY SKINLIGHTS
As a cheaper alternative, you can achieve a similar look with Revlon’s liquid highlighter – with light-capturing crystals to give a healthy glow. Try mixing it in with your favourite foundation and buffing it into the skin with a brush.
INSTITUT ESTERDERM BRONZANT FACE AND BODY SPRAY
This award-winning product is a must-have for tanning junkies! With unique ingredients, this innovative body spray reinforces the skin’s defenses against the sun whilst optimizing the tanning process.
ESTEE LAUDER BATIK SUN EYESHADOW QUAD
The perfect bronze eyeshadow palette with colours that compliment each other beautifully – we love the addition of a gorgeous turquoise green! With matte, satin, shimmer and metallic shades, the shadows blend perfectly for a smoky eye with a difference.
CHAMPNEYS MEDITERRANEAN BLISS SHIMMER BODY OIL
This stuff smells incredible and leaves skin soft, smooth and with a subtle glow. Massage into damp skin after a hot shower and your will feel instantly moisturised and fresh – a fabulous product for holidays.
CAUDALIE DIVINE LEGS
Living up to its name, this silky lotion gives a natural-looking colour and a beautiful sheen to the legs, without streaking or settling into dry patches. It glides on smoothly, and of course can be used on the rest of the body too!
BARE MINERALS READY BRONZER
This compact bronzer gives rich colour-payoff that can be used as a contour or for a subtle sun-kissed glow. The mineral formula promises long-lasting results, as well as nourishing antioxidants. Available in 3 shades to suit all skin tones.
DIORSKIN NUDE POUDRE COULEUR AND ECLAT BLUSH
This multi-faceted product combines shimmering bronze shades with flesh tones to give a natural radiance to the skin. Use on the apples of the cheeks for the perfect finish to your makeup look – a real luxury.
A nourishing tinted lip butter that will hydrate and protect, this is a great option for a subtler look. ‘Thrill’ is a beautiful bronze that will simply add sheen to the lips, with a light coconut flavour that reminds you of summer all year round.
