Bronze Yourself For This SUMMER/SPRING!

Bronzer has a dual effect. Contouring your face with a shade slightly darker than your skin creates the face shape you are dreaming of! The other method is applying a shimmery bronzer to the apples of your cheeks (the fat part when you smile...) or on your cheekbones to warm up your face for a sun-kissed look. This method is used as a blusher, but a brown toned powder instead of traditional pink. My favorite bronzer for contouring is a matte medium brown/tan color because I have a medium/olive skin tone. For the apples of my cheeks, shimmer is the way to go! Here are some bronzers that I recommend and one that I do NOT like. Also, keep reading for some bronzer do/don'ts!


Nars Laguna Bronzer

Net Weight: 0.28 OZ
Company: Nars Cosmetics
Where to buy: Sephora, Nordstroms, Bloomingdale's
Link: Nars Website $33.00 +shipping
Price: $33.00
Okay. So what do you expect? Of course I am going to add this to the list! I myself do not think this shade shows up or flatters my skin tone well, but thousands of other people beg to differ. Maybe I just need to give it another try! Who knows... Anyways, this shade is pretty "buildable" on your skin, and is one of the most raved about bronzers! It has a touch of shimmer but is still great for contouring! The huge compact makes it last quite a while. $33.00 is pretty steep, but it's okay to splurge once in a while!

Physician's Formula Happy Boost Bronzer

Net Weight: 0.40 OZ
Company: Physician's Formula
Where to buy: CVS, Target, Ulta
Link: Ulta ($13.99)
Price: $13.99

This bronzer is awesome!!! The rosy heart in the middle adds a beautiful pink undertone that warms up the whole product! Just take a fluffy brush and you are good to go! There is a right balance of light, medium, and pink tones that make this bronzer just right. The pigmentation is okay too, and the size is quite large. This drugstore bronzer is quite a pick.

Maybelline Dream Mousse Bronzer

Net Weight: 0.20 OZ
Company: Maybelline 
Where to buy: CVS, Rite Aid, Ulta
Price: $4-$7

YAY! Muddy silly putty on your face! Not. This bronzer is something you should stay away from if you see it. It is thick, gross, and worst of all, orange. Even from this picture it looks unpleasing to the eye. No cream bronzers from a jar/palette have impressed me yet, so I will keep on the look out! Anyways please do not waste your money even if it is $5.00 on Ulta.
