I’m not really a bronzer person but I’d probably choose Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil (for shading away my drooping “under chin” area) or, for my face (if it were still available) Too Faced Sweetie Pie Bronzer. It’s very light and I can dust it around my face to look a bit less pale.

Wish to God I’d discovered bronzer earlier, like in high school in the early 90s (did it even existt???) I’m around MAC NC15 and it would have given my fairish skin far more life.

My first bronzer was Terracotta (the sun doesn’t love you, Terracotta loves you ❤️) circa 2000. Went into Bloomingdales to try Prescriptives new tinted moisturizer and a Guerlain MA asked if I wanted a suntan. Got it and a Guerlain aqua shadow.

Too dark. Back then bronzers we’re not as inclusive as in 2023. I’d get L’Oréal Infallible in Fair for winter or Benefit Hula Light. For summer Elizabeth Mott What’s Up Beaches (K beauty). And yes, I’ve tried MANY MANY ridiculously expensive bronzers and dirt cheap ones over my 30 yrs of MU addiction.

Natasha Denona’s mini bronzer (it comes with a highlight, but I never use that). I don’t think it even has a name, but the entire thing is called Bronze & Glow. I need a more peachy shade for bronzer, and that one seems to nail it.

You may like the Guerlain Terracotta Light Healthy Glow bronzer in 00 Light Cool. It’s a neutral light brown color with pieces of cool toned pink blush scattered throughout so it gives a natural post-sunburn look to my skin. It’s also impossible to go overboard because it’s pretty subtle. This is the only bronzer I use unless I’m on a video call for work and need something that will show up; then I use the Gucci bronzer in 01

I’ll look. The only 2 bronzers I ever liked were both by too faced, which is hardly a fave for me. Snow Bunny was light, with stripes of pink and taupe in it. And the LE pink leopard. As w/ Genevieve, bronzers don’t usually agree, color wise. On the spectrum between drab yellow and light swamp green.

Bronzers never worked for me either, they were always too dark, orange or yellow, plus I don’t tan naturally, I burn and go back to “glow in the dark”, so they all just looked fake. The mix of bronzer and pink blush in the Guerlain bronzer likely gives a look similar to your 2 from TF. They give the fading sunburn look that the Bare Minerals Blonzer is trying to replicate. I own Kiss of Pink and it sort of works in a similar way but it’s more blush than bronzer on me.

Chanel Les Beiges Bronzing Cream (in the lightest shade – I believe there are three now) forever and always. There are several others that I like just fine, but this Chanel bronzer is the only one that I love as it’s the only one that truly looks natural on my complexion. I use it every day!

Tough one, since I probably have 10 powder bronzers. It would have to be L’Oreal Lumi Powder Bronzer in Deep. Nice cool to neutral shade.

Guerlain’s Terracotta Healthy Glow in 00 Light Cool. It a neutral brown color with pieces of cool toned pink blush scattered throughout, which gives a natural post-sunburn look to my vampire pale skintone.
