“Urban Decay might be known for its amazing eyeshadow palettes, but I found love in the Naked Flushed Palette (in Strip). It’s got a bronzer, highlighter and blush, which can be used separately or together, depending on how glam a look you want to achieve. What I love about this palette is that it’s extremely easy to blend—seriously, you can do it with your eyes closed!—and the coverage is buildable. Another one of my favourites is Benefit’s Hoola Matte Bronzing Powder.”

“My favourite bronzer is from Orlane Paris—they’re known for their fabulous formulas. Not only is the luxurious packaging to die for, but the way the product reflects on your skin (with a hint of shimmer) is beautiful! It doesn’t feel heavy, and gives a lasting natural finish with a warm glow.”

“I like make-up that looks seamless, and that’s why this Shimmer Brick has been a part of my beauty bag ever since I was introduced to it. It creates a soft, warm, pink glow in just one sweep—the product just melts on the face and lights it up in a beautiful way!”

Celebrity Make-up Artist

“Currently, I’m in love with the Bronze Goddess Powder Bronzer. In general, I only use (and love) matte powders—I hate it when bronzers have glittery or shimmery particles in them; it doesn’t look natural. I feel a bronzer should give your skin a natural, sun-kissed look and warmth...as if you were sitting in the sun and got tanned. And to achieve the same, the formula has to be matte. A little tip: I like to frame the face with bronzer by applying it with a big, fluffy brush. I also apply it on the nose ridge to get the full sun-kissed effect.”

“I love bronzers...they add an earthy touch to your skin and are the perfect way to fake a tan! Out of the many bronzers I have tried, the one that I am loving currently is the MuruMuru Butter Bronzer by Physicians Formula. The texture is amazing, and I love how you can achieve a ‘subtle contour’ look without any harsh colour variation.”

“I mean I really can’t pick just one... So here goes: I love the powdery Benefit Hoola, it’s easy to blend and looks natural. Guerlain’s Terracota range is also brilliant—it’s a great formula and comes in a very chic packaging. Charlotte Tilbury’s liquid contours work on all skin types and colours as well. Lastly, NYX’s contour wand is a superb budget buy. The formula is creamy and perfect for those who don’t want to spend a bomb.”

“Bobbi Brown’s Illuminating Bronzing Powder is my absolute favourite. It’s really pigmented and blends easily (which is a huge plus!), and leaves me with a peachy glow.”

“I think Two Faced has the best bronzers—they’re well pigmented and can be used for contouring, or even as an eyeshadow. This one is exceptionally delish because it’s coconut-scented. I also like Bobbi Brown’s bronzers—they work for all skin tones and give you a ‘glowing tan’, if you know what I mean!”

“I love, love, love the Filmstar Bronze And Glow by Charlotte Tilbury. It’s a smooth powder formula, which blends beautifully and leaves a lovely colour. Another one of my favourites is the Tom Ford’s Shade & Illuminate. It is a compact palette with a bronzer and highlighter—perfect for when I feel like I need a more chiselled face as it can be used to contour as well.”

“My go-to bronzer this season is definitely the Ignite Wonder Face Palette from M·A·C’s recently-launched Electric Wonder collection. I always love special packaging, and this is gorgeous inside out with its pink marble design, and the cream-like powder formula that gives a luminous yet natural sheen!”

“The reason this duo is my go-to summer bronzer is because it’s the perfect blend of cool and warm tones, and lends my skin a beautiful warm flush that looks natural.”

“I’ve been using The Body Shop Honey Bronze Shimmering Dry Oil for years... I like to keep my face natural, but love a little ‘tan’ on my body. And this one’s on my must-have list because it keeps my body moisturised and lends a beautiful sheen.”

“When it comes to getting that I-just-got-back-from-the-beach glow, my go-to product is the Tom Ford Bronzing Powder in the shade Terra. It isn’t shimmery, has a beautiful matte finish, and practically melts onto the face as you apply it. It is the most natural-looking bronzer I have ever used.”

“My favourite bronzer has to be Tom Ford’s, hands down! I love the texture—it’s very light and feels like you have nothing on—and looks very natural.”
