Makeup Monday: Favorite Bronzers

The best bronzer for pale skin

As a (super) pale person, bronzer has always made me nervous.  A couple years ago, I wanted to try bronzer but thought I couldn't find one to suit my skin.  Well, that nervousness didn't last very long.  I just started diving into the world of bronzers.  These are the ones that I love.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Bronzer in Park Avenue Princess

This is a small size, and as you can see, I've used the heck out of it.  It is shimmery, but it's definitely a classy shimmery (does that make sense?).  It warms up my skin and gives me a really pretty glow.

NARS Bronzer in Laguna

Another tiny bronzer :)  I was very, very surprised that to like this one.  This is a pretty popular bronzer in the Youtube beauty world.  It's a matte bronzer, slightly darker than the Tarte one.  I really have to use a light hand with this, but it's so pretty.

Sonia Kashuk Undetectable Creme Bronzer in Warm Tan

What a weird name for a makeup product, right?  If something was actually undetectable, why would I even wear it?  I'm pretty sure they mean 'so natural it looks like your actual skin and not this creme bronzer you're about to buy.'  But that would take up too much space on the packaging.  Anyways!  This is a (you guessed it) creme bronzer.  I like to wear this under foundation.  I apply it in the contour areas of my face (hollows of my cheeks and around my hair line a bit).  It looks very natural coming through my foundation.  It's one of the more affordable bronzers I own, as well.

Laura Mercier Shimmer Bloc in Golden Mosaic

I use this as more of a bronzer-y blush, but it definitely falls in that 'warming up your face' category of face products.  You can swirl the colors together to create a custom shade, or you can use each individual color.  It not only warms up my cheeks, but it also highlights.  I love this multi-tasking product!

Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer in Milk Chocolate

This bronzer ranks right up there with the Tarte one.  It smells just like chocolate (I love that) and it's that gorgeous, matte, warm brown that just looks so nice on your skin.  Plus it smells like chocolate.  Did I mention that?

What are your favorite bronzers?

Liking up with Molly and Carly.
