Bronze is beautiful.

Beauty Advice: Luxe or Less? Summer is upon us! That time of year when we put our best skin forward and let it glow. It's one of my favoite times of year! There is nothing I love more than a heathy bronze glow. What I don't love is sun damage and premature aging the sun can cause (especially here in Phoenix). So, it's best we lather on the SPF and add our faux bronze look with a powder bronzer instead of really baking in the sun. Bronzers have really evolved! There is a perfect one for every skintone in every price range!

Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powders:

  1. Terracotta Light Sheer Bronzing Powder...$51
  2. Terracotta Bronzing Powder Long Lasting...$51
  3. Terracotta 4 Seasons Tailor-Made Bronzing Powder...$75
  • Lovelist: Amazing application - goes on so smooth, right amount of color for the face (not too much shimmer, color is buildable), comes in multiple colors for all different skintones (great for the fairest fair to deepest deep skintones).
  • Wishlist: They break so easily! When I carry one in my handbag, makeup kit, or tote, I find they chip and break super easy! So be careful!

Physicians Formula

  1. Powder Palette Multi-Colored Face Powder...$13.95
  2. Bronzer Booster Glow-busting Bronze Veil...$15.95
  3. Glow-busting Season-to-Season Bronzer...$14.95
  • Lovelist: Love the price (right now ULTA has all Physicians Formula Buy 1 Get 1 50% off)! Bronzers come with a brush, Hypoallergenic, Fragrance-free & Oil-free
  • Wishlist: Less glimmer, longer wear, and more skintone color options.

Beauty Advice: Go Guerlain! It's my personal favorite. The perfect bronzer to take you from Summer into Fall (because it's so buildable) and the product lasts forever! I think if you give one of them a try you will fall in love with them too!

Go LUXE if...

  • you have a hard time finding a bronzer that is not too light or dark for your skintone, they have so many options.
  • like more of a matte bronzer (my personal favorite) with subtle shimmer and a tad bit of gold.
  • are concerned about sulfates. phthalates, and triclosan (it has none of these ingredients).
  • love that it's long-lasting and also moisturizes.

Go LESS if...

  • you love shimmer - many of the bronzers have a illuminating glow.
  • are on a budget, there are some really amazing deals on Physicians Formula!
  • like the fact that it is oil-free, hypoallergenic, and dermatologist tested.
