The best bronzers
Since I hit my 30’s, I’ve been protecting my skin more and more from the sun, especially on my face. The problem with reaching for the factor 50+, is your face can be left a little dull looking, and a few shades lighter than the rest of your body. The lack of sunshine this summer hasn’t really helped create my sun-kissed glow either. This is why a new bronzer can put you back in the sunshine mood, give you a healthy radiance and the perfect glow.
There are so many options now to choose from, powders, gels, creams. The Grown Up Edit has the advise you need on the best formulas and have hand-picked the best industry bronzers. Some of these may seem expensive, but they are worth the investment. They will last longer and are kinder to your skin.
CHANEL Soliel Tan De Chanel £32
This is an amazing bronzer. Warms up the skin beautifully, even on the palest skin. It’s a cream, so easy to blend and helps give your skin a dewy glow. This is also great for gentle contouring.
BENEFIT Hoola Bronzer £32.50
This powder is matt, so no sparkle or shine, which I’m a very big fan of. Great buildable coverage and can also be used for contouring.
REVLON Photo Skin Lights £11.99
This is a gel and skin illuminator, so will banish dullness and even out your skin tone with its pigments. You can also mix this with your foundation to give you a little more coverage.
GUERLAIN Terracotta Moisturising Bronzing Powder £36
This was one of the first bronzers on the market, so often classed as legendary. It’s available in eight shades, so is suitable for all skin tones.
BECCA Bronzing Skin Perffector £28
This is a universal, sheer bronzing cream designed to smooth and even out your skin, while giving you a sun-kissed glow. Its amazing formula means you can mix it with your moisturiser or foundation, for your own custom made finish.
