Recently, the hype around contouring and strobing has pushed the lowly bronzer out of the picture. However, the golden, glowing and bronzed look is back. The beauty trends for SS16 are all about loving the skin you’re in and if you love your skin when it has a slight goddess-like tan, so be it.
Find your perfect look below:
This beautifully packaged bronzer is a cult favourite. The formula includes moisturising ingredients so it won’t dry out your skin and the rich, golden hue adds a flawless glow that looks like you’ve had a holiday.
This brush is the perfect shape for all your bronzing needs! (Though, we highly recommend using it with our favourite, Hoola).
This bronzer is waterproof, perfect for our untrustworthy English summer. Do not be put off by the rich colour in the pan; it applies lightly to give a natural-looking glow to the skin.
Rimmel Sun Shimmer Compact (£5.61).
Super affordable but effective. This Rimmel bronzer does exactly what it says on the tin – the “sun shimmer” gives a gentle glow that lasts all day.
Tom Ford Bronzing Powder in Gold Dust (£68).
This is a real treat. A single sweep of Tom Ford’s gold dust will transform you into a sun-kissed goddess. We love this radiant, beautiful compact.
Too Faced Chocolate Soleil (£23).
This one is for all the chocolate lovers out there – this bronzer is infused with cocoa powder and signature bronzing pigments to create a unique glow. Bonus, it smells like chocolate too!
If you’re not keen on the shimmery-bronzed look, the Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder is the one for you. This will give you a golden glow without the sparkle.
NARS The Multiple (£29).
This NARS stick is a cult classic. As a cream bronzer, it instantly adds a sun-kissed glow to your skin. This colour glides on easily and can be blended with the fingers for a flawless finish.
