Contouring became a must in everyone’s makeup routine in the past year. Creating shadow to the cheekbones and highlighting the inner corners of your face was on everyone’s to do lists. Now that we’ve tried our fair share we’re here to give you the run down on our favourite bronzers. Whether you’re a contouring pro/beginner or you’re just looking for a good bronzer to warm up your complexion this post is for you.
Annabelle Skin True Soft Tan – Hands down the biggest bang for your buck. Not only do you get a large amount of product but you can pick it up at your local drugstore for cheap. The golden matte colour is perfect for all skin tones and will never leave you looking muddy. This is probably one of the lighter shades we have in our collection making it a great product to use all over the face to give you that sun kissed look instead of using it as a shadow for contouring. A few quick swipes of this will also help to blend in any contouring you may do over top.
Tarte Park Ave Princess – This is the Beyoncé of bronzers. It not only creates the perfect all around glow, but it can also effortlessly blend and define for contouring. And, if you’re in a jam it can also be used as transition colour for your favourite day time makeup look. If you’re looking for a product that is also good for your skin, look no further. This matte powder is designed to balance your skin and reduce dryness with the use of clay. If that’s not a must, we don’t know what is!
Nars Laguna – The most famous bronzer in the world. What else is there to say about it. It works for everyone. The colour is perfect, while it isn’t matte so we wouldn’t use it to contour. It really does achieve that golden goddess glow every girl wants in the summer. A little truly does go a long way.
Too Faced Milk Chocolate – Not only does this bronzer smell amazing, but the matte formula is perfect for blending and contouring. The colour is the perfect warm brown that doesn’t make you look orange or red, which is always the risk with bronzers. You can currently pick up the Too Faced “Bronzer Wardrobe” which has 4 of the chocolate bronzers for $28 and it is definitely a steal!
Benefit Hoola – This bronzer can go from beautiful to oopma loompa real quick. The packaging also isn’t our favourite, and the brush can pick up a lot of unnecessary product if you aren’t careful. BUT! We had to include this in our top five because if you’re careful this bronzer can create the most perfect contour ever. The colour is so dark and warm, it really settles into the hollows of your cheeks without making it too obvious or muddy.
