Glossier Solar Paint*

The day has finally arrived! Glossier have launched their bronzer offering and it does not disappoint. The formulation is a beautifully weightless and hydrating gel texture that seamlessly blends and melts into the skin. As expected from Glossier’s approach to makeup, it’s very much a natural, sun-kissed and fresh bronzed finish that promotes a year around healthy glow. Available in 4 shades – my favourites are Ray and Flare.

Tom Ford Soleil Glow Bronzer*

This is my all-time favourite powder bronzer. Beautifully natural for everyday wear, it delivers a slight glow but isn’t shiny. Despite being a powder it’s formulated with emollient plant butters which give it this soft, hydrating texture that blends like a second-skin. Gold Dust 01 is my shade of choice.

Iconic London Sheer Bronze*

Iconic’s liquid blushes are brilliant and their newly launched liquid bronzers are no exception! They are lightweight, easily blendable with fingers and provide a sheer, soft focus finish delivering this summer’s sunkissed glow. You can build up the colour for a deeper bronze but either way – a fresh, dewy complexion awaits. Available in 8 shades, Beach Vibes and Sun Kiss are my favourites. 

Danessa Myricks Balm Contour

Available in 8 versatile shades, I love this creamy, lightweight bronzer that blends in like a dream. It’s also infused with skincare ingredients like hyaluronic acid and vitamin e so it smooths skin texture and nourishes. A great choice for drier skin types.

Saie Sun Melt Cream Bronzer*

A more natural everyday cream bronzer that blends and melts seamlessly into the skin. Infused with nourishing ingredients like colloidal oatmeal, you get that fresh, velvety and hydrated sheen on the skin.

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Bronzer*

Since its launch last summer, this has become a staple powder bronzer for many. The hyaluronic acid infused micro-fine powder feels like silk on the skin and delivers a soft, healthy glow. So easy to use on both face and body. 

Pai Impossible Glow*

I’m super impressed by these new hyaluronic acid infused bronzing drops. They look intense and shimmery in the bottle but blend out beautifully and sheer. They’re not a self-tan so you can mix them easily with your tinted moisturiser or blend out a few drops as a highlight to create a lovely bronzed glow.

Tower 28 Bronzino Illuminating Bronzer*

I’m impressed with these super lightweight and blendable cream bronzers. Not only do they deliver on a sun-kissed glow, you get a luminous skin finish that catches the summer light – so dreamy!

Milk Makeup Matte Bronzer*

My most used cream bronzer. It’s a beautiful lightweight cream formulation that blends effortlessly into the skin. Unlike the name suggests, it’s not actually matte but shows up fresh and glowing on the skin. I’m obsessed! I use the shade Baked but it also comes in a darker shade called Blaze.
