I am sharing the top 10 bronzers for face and body today, including some drugstore & clean options, as well as the perfect choices for us paler gals.
We are in the late stages of summer and many of you are excited for the cooler temps and all of the fall stuff. However, I love a good summer glow and I just feel better about myself when I have a little color. So, I plan on making it last as long as possible with some of my favorite products.
In this post, I have rounded up my top 10 bronzers for face and body for you all. Personally, I find bronzer to be a life saver and wear it year round, on a daily basis. There is a trick to applying it correctly, that I share in my Instagram stories under my “Makeup Tips” highlights. If someone says ” I like your bronzer, you are not applying it correctly. You shouldn’t see bronzer. Instead, your skin should just look healthy and glowing with a little color.
Body bronzers are great for camouflaging flaws like cellulite, and hiding our lumps and bumps. It is like an Instagram filter in a tube. I love wearing them on date night, or for special occasions to make my skin look smooth, hydrated and glowing. Bronzer leaves a temporary color on your skin and washes off. Self tanners stay put after you apply them for about a week or so. I love them, but you don’t always have the time it takes to do it properly, so body bronzers are a quick, temporary fix. You can read more on my favorite self tanners and how to apply them here:
There are many good, quality bronzers out there, but today I am sharing my personal favorite top 10 bronzers for face & body.
TOP 10 BRONZERS FOR FACE AND BODY
NARS LAGUNA BODY TINT SPF 30 This stuff is pure magic and an absolute staple in my beach bag. Not only does make you look better in your bathing suit, it also contains sunscreen to protect your from the sun. Why haven’t more companies thought of this, right?!
NYX BORN TO GLOW This is a great drugstore option and can be used on the face as well as the body. Another one of my favorite drugstore items for glowing skin is this Burt’s Bees Body lotion, but it didn’t earn a spot in my top ten, because it is technically not a bronzer. it just adds glow, no color, but it is a fabulous product.
ST. TROPEZ BODY GLOSS It’s the tube that you pick up whether you want your skin to have a slight glow or to be full-blown bronze. The glittery lotion builds up your tan just the way you like it, while giving your skin the just the slightest shine.
BOBBI BROWN BRONZE SHIMMER BRICK I love this shimmer brick so much. Although I typically steer away from bronzers with shimmer or spARKLE in them, when it comes to the face, this one I love as a kind of finishing powder. It imparts the most beautiful glow onto your cheeks, collar bones..really anywhere you want to add a little bit of sheen.
GUERLAIN TERRACOTTA BRONZING POWDER . An iconic product that has stood the test of time and for good reason. This bronzer imparts the most perfect, healthy looking color. I recommend this product to all of my clients. It is pricy, but worth it and one compact will last me a couple of years with heavy use.

PHYSICIANS FORMULA BUTTER BRONZER I love using this bronzer in the winter time. The paler shade gives me just enough color and it smells like a tropical vacation. This is also a great budget-friendly option.
BENEFIT HOOLA BRONZER Another iconic product. This bronzer is fabulous and is used by many professional makeup artists. The original version can be a bit intense for pale folks like me and harder to use, so they came out with a lighter version and it is perfection.
JOSIE MARAN BRONZING OIL I am a big fan of this cruelty free brand. This product is so hydrating and can be used from head to toe, even in your hair! It also smells heavenly!
ELEPHANT D-BRONZI These “sunshine drops” ( I love that name) do exactly that – impart a little sunshine to wherever you choose. A little bit of this magic potion goes a long way, so use it sparingly. It can be used in multiple ways, and the company recommends you mix it with your sunscreen, tinted moisturizer of facial oil to impart a beautiful glow. I also like dabbing just a tiny bit on my forehead, cheekbones and nose for a healthy glow.
DEW THE HOOLA I love using this liquid bronzer to adjust my foundation shade in the summer time. I talked about this beauty hack more in this 60 SECOND BEAUTY video. It has no shimmer and is very sheer and realistic looking. It is very user friendly and easy to work with.
I hope you find a couple of products to love in this round up of my top ten bronzers for face and body. As always, email me with any questions you may have. Keep me posted.
