Summer has gone away, but the bronzy glow can be here to stay using the right bronzer for your skin type (and budget).
Here are a few of my favs.
Best Bronzer for Deeper Skin Tones; Black Radiance Mosaic Bronzer in Bronzing Shimmer $5 Walgreens, Drugstores Nationwide
Add contrast and warmth to deeper skin tones with Black Radiance, the leading cosmetic drugstore line for African-American women. Bronzing Shimmer gives you 4 shades to create a rich sunny look with a little bit of glow.
Best Budget Mineral Bronzer; Everyday Minerals Everyday Bronzer
Not only is the price right, but you can try it first in a (rather large) sample size for just $2.50 to make sure the color works for you. Same goes for their wildy popular mineral foundations, cheek colors, and select eyeshadows.
Best Bronzer for Photography; CARGO blu_ray Bronzer
$30, Sephora, Sephora.com, Cargo.com
When it’s the photos that count most, you want something designed specifically for the lens where imperfections are often amplified. With light-diffusing particles that scatter and blur light, it gives a much softer appearance in a one-shade-suits-most color.
Best Bronzer for Dry Skin; Lancome Tropiques Minérale Smoothing Loose Bronzer
$38, Lancome.com, Department Stores Nationwide
Lancome’s aloe-infused mineral bronzer smoothes over fine lines instead of settling into them avoiding that dry, cakey appearance some powders can give. Give this giant jar a second job by scooping a little powder out to mix it into your body lotion for instantly bronzed arms, legs, and declote.
