Hey girl hey! If you’ve been following along, you would know that I have started a blog series all about the best of different products. Last week, I did The Best Of: Skincare for Oily Skin, which you can check out here! In today’s post, I’m going to talk all about one of my favorite makeup products ever…bronzers! Bronzer is one of those products that can instantly transform any look. I seriously am addicted to bronzers, and find myself constantly trying new ones. If you want to learn all about the best ones, keep on scrolling!

1. NYX Matte Bronzer
This is one of my OG drugstore faves. If you’ve been following me for awhile, you know I love this bronzer! This bronzer is perfect for adding a bit of warmth and definition to the face, but doesn’t have a ton of shimmer that can be unflattering on certain skin types. I use shade Medium, but there are other shades for deeper or lighter skin tones! You can purchase this bronzer HERE!
2. Hourglass Ambient Light Bronzer
If you’re looking for a bronzer that gives you the perfect amount of glow, this is the one you will need! This has been such a huge staple in my bridal kit because it makes your skin look so radiant and flawless, while also providing some warmth to the skin. This one is a little pricier, but so worth the money–especially if you want to feel a lil bougie. You can purchase this bronzer HERE!
3. Baja Bae Caramel Lotion*
This is something a little different, but I still HAD to mention it. Baja Bae Caramel Lotion is a product that can be used on the face or body. It adds a slight bronze to the skin and makes your skin look like you just got home from a beach vacation. It’s not a self-tanner, and it’s not a tanning lotion, it’s just a little extra color. Pro tip: take a face brush of any kind and brush this lightly onto your face underneath foundation for a natural bronze. You can purchase this lotion HERE!
4. Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel
Another bougie fave! This is a cream bronzer, which is perfect for dryer skin types. Chanel’s bronzer gives you that total sunkissed, just went to the beach look. I like to apply this with my fingers, and then blend out with a sponge for the most natural look. You can purchase HERE!
5. Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer
I don’t think there are enough words to write about how obsessed with this formula I am! Physician’s Formula has a whole line of Butter products that seriously feel just like butter. It blends out perfectly, and gives the best dimension to the skin. I personally love THIS palette, because it comes with three different shades for the perfect all-over bronze look, however, you can get it in singles as well!
6. Benefit Hoola Bronzer
If you’re looking for more of a chiseled, contoured look, this is a great bronzer option! It’s one of the highest selling bronzers of all time, and for good reason. It’s great for more fair skin tones, and it helps to create depth perfectly. Bonus, it comes with a brush that actually works great with it! You can purchase HERE!
7. Tarte Matte Waterproof Bronzer in Park Ave Princess
The most flattering bronzer ever! I seriously love how perfect this looks on a wide range of skin tones. It gives the skin such a soft, flawless glow and adds beautiful dimension. I also love that it’s waterproof, so I don’t have to worry about it wiping off in the summer. This is a perfect option for oily skin because it’s long-wearing. You can purchase HERE!
8. Nars Bronzing Powder in Laguna
Nars’ cheek products are so good, and this bronzer is no exception! I love using this on fair skinned brides, because it’s not orange, and it gives such a natural look. Also, another thing that I love is that one compact will last forever. I seriously have had the same one in my own personal kit for awhile now, and I haven’t even hit pan! You can purchase HERE!
9. Wet n Wild Color Icon Bronzer in Gold
If you want that sunkissed, vacation, radiant glow, this drugstore fave will be the one for you! This one has a bit of shimmer in it, so it mimics a true beach vacation. I like to use this almost more like a highlighter than anything. Plus, who doesn’t love getting an amazing deal on something that feels high end? You can purchase HERE!
