Whether you're after a dash of sun-kissed colour or simply want to add a little radiance to your complexion, bronzer is your knight in shining armour. It has the ability to instantly impart a healthy glow on your face within the buff of a brush. So, with that in mind, I thought I’d share the seven best bronzers that have the Glossy stamp of approval! 

1. benefit Hoola 

Here at Glossy, we love benefit (their badgal bang mascara  has to be one of our favourites!). When it comes to the best bronzers, though, we have a serious soft spot for their Hoola bronzing powder.

Creating a warm-toned matte finish, this bronzer gives even the palest of skin a glowing tan. Simply dust it over your cheeks, chin and forehead to achieve a gorgeously healthy, sun-kissed look. 

2. Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Powder Bronzer 

Renowned for amazing summer bronzers, Estee Lauder never fail to impress - and this compact is no exception. 

This smooth, oil-free powder boasts a silky texture that sits effortlessly on your skin. Plus, its highly-pigmented formula delivers a warm, natural-looking glow with a touch of radiant shimmer. It’s hard not to love it! 

3. Rimmel Radiance Shimmer Brick 

If it’s a shimmery dewiness that you’re after, then you’ll definitely think that this Radiance Brick is one of the best bronzers out there.  

An ultra-fine bronzer powder fit with an array of multi-tonal, glittery hues, it can be used to highlight and contour your best features. You can expect bronzed, radiant and illuminated skin.  

4. Urban Decay Beached Bronzer 

Urban Decay sure know how to make a setting spray – and their bronzers aren’t bad either! 

My favourite thing about their Beached Bronzer? Its ultra-creamy formula that doesn’t dry out your skin! Plus, it can be used on both your face and your body, creating an all-over glow.  

5. St. Tropez 3-in-1 Bronzing Powder 

If you love the St. Tropez fake tan, then you’re bound to love their bronzing powder too.  

This compact features three sections that can be used individually as highlighters, bronzers and sculptors, or combined together for a dramatic splash of sun-kissed glamour. Slip it into your makeup bag and it will cover all of your dewy needs.  

6. Maybelline City Bronzer and Contour Powder 

Who says that you need to spend a lot of money to get a great quality bronzer? This Maybelline one adds an instant radiance to your skin effortlessly.  

Infused with soft-milled pigments, this bronzing powder blends easily and sits comfortably on your skin, creating a silky-smooth and perfectly even finish. Trust me, you’re going to look so sun-kissed! 

7. NYX Professional Makeup California Beamin' Face and Body Bronzer 

NYX have never let us down when it comes to makeup and you won’t find a better value bronzer than this one.  

Set in an oversized pan, it is the biggest bronzer you’ll ever use. It doesn’t let down on quality either. Its creamy, velvety texture blends smoothly onto your skin and provides a warm glow. Plus, it’s really highly-pigmented so a little goes a long way! 

All of these bronzers are available from lookfantastic and I promise that none of them will disappoint!
