bronzed beauty

Looks like it's time for a tan, since Summer is upon us. However, with that Arizona heat beating down, the outdoors isn't the most appealing place I want to spend my time. This is where bronzer becomes my friend and a trip to Sephora comes into my schedule. There are tons to choose from! Hellooo, sun-kissed glow.




1. LORAC TANtalizer Baked Bronzer. If you're looking for a major glow without the glitter, then this is the one for you. You don't need a whole lot, so the little pot of gold lasts a long time. It also works great as an eyeshadow! Warning: This is not for the pale at heart.

2. Too Faced Carribean in a Compact. My mom, sister, and I are fans of this one. We love this bronzer in the Sun Bunny. With a lighter side and a darker side, you can contour or blend to get your right color. With pink undertones, you won't look orange! All you'll have is a natural looking tan.

3. Benefit Cosmetics Hoola. I have adored Benefit since I was allowed to wear makeup. Their cute packaging and great products have stuck with me since the 8th grade. I wore this bronzer back then, and still do! The matte, brown shade is perfect for contouring with the little brush provided. When I want an all over color, I use my handy Kabuki brush.

4. Laura Mercier Bronzing Pressed Powder. I like this bronzer in the color Dune. It stays on for a long time and blends really well, probably due to its silky texture. I think what I like most is that it doesn't have a shimmer to it. It's matte, which looks more natural for daytime use.

5. NARS Bronzing Powder. Have to give a shout out to my favorite makeup brand. I love their bronzing powder in Laguna. The sheer color creates a great base tan, and the gold shimmer gives off a pretty glow.

6. Anastasia ILLUMIN8 With Youthful Synergy Complex Bronzer. Sheesh! Is that a mouthful, but at least you get a bang for your vocab. Already an avid fan of brow products by Anastasia, this hydrating and smoothing bronzer is just as good. With tons of oceanic ingredients, like green algae and sea whip extract, it's no wonder my face stays hydrated and soft!
