Summer's here so it's officially time to dust off your bronzer! Nothing makes your complexion look more warm sun-kissed than a swoosh of bronzer on the skin - and the best part is you can achieve this look in less than five minutes! Not only does it finish your look with a summer glow, it warms up your skin nicely so all you really need is some tinted lip balm and you're ready to go. Sunbathing, tanning beds can cause skin damage so bronzers are definitely the way to get that golden glow without harming your skin. Check out our picks for the best bronzers!

How To Apply Bronzer
The key to getting your perfect faux glow on is not just having a great bronzer but knowing how to apply it. When applying bronzer, use a big fluffy brush and tap off any excess product before swiping on your face (do NOT blow on the brush as this spreads bacteria). Concentrate most of the coloron your temples and along the cheekbones and remember, use a light touch! You can always gently layer a bit more on which is way easier than putting too much on and having to start again. Without dipping your brush in the bronzer again, lightly brush it across your nose and chin. If you want to try a cream or gel, apply to the same spots but make sure you focus on blending!
