3 Must Have Bronzers



Do you use blush, bronzer or both?

In the summer I tend to go for a bronzer and highlighter combo, and I practically never leave the house without my bronzer. Summer months call for a tan, but gone are the days that we suntan for hours. Instead, we can rely on our summer bff – the bronzer.

Bronzers can either be used to add a healthy glow to your every day complexion, or to contour and add more definition to your face. Either way, bronzers are a ‘must have’ in today’s beauty industry. Whether you’re fair or dark, it’s difficult to know which bronzer to choose so I’ve tested out over 10 bronzers this summer and I’ve rounded up my top 3.

Each of these bronzers are in Limited Edition Collections, so make sure to snap one up soon. I also selected bronzers that would work for most skin tones.

In no particular order:

1) Sephora Limited Edition Sun DiskBRONZERS, best bronzers, sun kissed, bblogger, beauty blogger, best summer bronzer, sephora sun disk, sephora bronzer, bronzer, best bronzer, beauty blog, bblogger,

This oversized jumbo palette is actually quite large measuring 4.5 inches wide and containing 30g of product. The limited edition Sephora Sun Disk Bronzer is a solid palette probably more for use at home rather than on-the-go. While the Sephora Sun Disk does contain three shades, they’re so close together in proximity that they’re impossible to use on their own. Mixed together, however, they give that beautiful sun kissed glow to any skin tone. The compact is a fun brown and black zebra pattern which is really cute.

2) Elizabeth Arden
BRONZERS, best bronzers, sun kissed, bblogger, beauty blogger, best summer bronzer, sunkissed pearl, elizabeth arden sunkissed pearl, elizabeth arden canada, elizabeth arden summer, elizabeth arden sunkissed pearl bronzer

The Sunkissed Pearls Bronzer and Highlighter duo is the perfect compact to throw into your purse. It truly is perfection in a compact. With three shades, this bronzing powder and highlighter duo gives a sun-kissed, contoured glow to any complexion. The compact comes with a metallic silver half-moon brush for application – the perfect size for throwing into into your makeup bag. Bronzer and highlighter in one – easy!

3) Mac Wash & Wear Collection Bronzermac wash and dry, mac bronzer, mac wash and dry golden rose, BRONZERS, best bronzers, sun kissed, bblogger, beauty blogger, best summer bronzer

This bronzer, in Golden Rinse, has a beautiful creamy/powder formula. Not only is the bronzer fabulous, but it’s almost worth picking this up just for the vibrant metallic multi coloured packaging (I am so obsessed with the packaging from this collection that I did some matching nail art in THIS POST)! If you haven’t checked out the Mac Wash & Wear Collection, it did launch a few months ago, so grab this while you still can.
