It’s tricky to find the best bronzer. A lot of factors have to be taken into account. Whether or not you want shimmer. Whether the shade will suit your skin tone. And your skin type – dry, combination or oily. All of these things will effect how your bronzer looks. For personalised bronzer recommendations, look no further than Powder.

You might think a bronzer on pale skin will look too garish. But, there’s a whole host of new products on the market that are catered for lighter skin tones. The key is to go no more than one or two shades darker than your natural complexion. You should also choose a formula with pink, peachy or golden undertones. The result? Skin that looks sun-kissed rather than an odd shade of orange.

For those of you with warmer skin tones you’re in luck, because you can choose to go subtle with your bronzer or really pack it on. Be ware of formulas that are too shimmery though .this can make your skin look washed out. So, if you want a touch of shimmer, make sure the particles are super fine. If you’ve got olive undertones, try copper shades. And if you’ve got yellow undertones, go with more golden and peachy options.
