Summertime and the bronzing is easy… with these four bronzers. My favourite is the Shimmer Brick Compact by Bobbi Brown because I like a little shimmer in my bronzer and it has a nice rosy tint to it. A close second is the sheer bronzing powder, Terracotta Light from Guerlain – no sparkle, but the shade 02 Blondes suits my complexion and the compact is the perfect size for any purse or clutch. Third favourite is the new Desert Bronzing Powder Kit from Pupa – a matte finish which comes in a limited edition set with a nice brush and mini makeup bag. This bronzer is a bit too dark for me, but would suit someone with a more olive complexion. Lastly, I tried Annabelle’s Perfect Bronze in Sun Goddess – a mineral and silk powder blend that has a really nice shimmer, but probably I would’ve been better off with their other shade, Sun Kissed. This bronzer is your best budget bet overall.

With summer just around the corner, it’s fun to have so many options to look tanned without actually having to tan!
