When it comes to summer’s must-have makeup product, you can’t beat a bronzer. The perfect way to enhance a golden glow or a holiday tan, or to add a bronzing boost if your skin hasn’t seen the sun, bronzers do everything from adding warmth to your skin and highlighting your features to shaping your face and body.
Whether you’re after a liquid bronzer or a powder, or have fairer or darker skin, Savoir Flair has hunted down the top seven bronzers in the business. Read on to discover the best summer product for you.
The Bronzing Primer
Worn alone or under your bronzer, Tom Ford’s ‘Bronzing Primer’ is the perfect skin pick-me-up for summer. Suited to all skin tones, it’s beautifully blendable and buildable, giving skin a subtle golden glow with its lightweight, creamy formula.
The Matte Bronzer
Essentially a beach in a box, Benefit’s ‘Hoola’ hasn’t won countless awards for nothing. Without a hint of shimmer or glitter in sight, it’s pure matte magic and is perfect for contouring and sculpting your features, as well as giving you a year-round natural-looking tan.

The Bronzer with Blush
For a bronzer that brings a burst of blush, look no further than the new Clarins ‘Bronzing & Blush Compact’. Featuring two matte shades, a golden tint, and an apricot blush, it allows you to mix and match as you please or blend all the shades together for the perfect peachy tan.
The Bronzer for Fairer Skins
If you have fair skin or hair, the thought of brushing on bronzer can be rather daunting, but thanks to this clever compact from Guerlain, it doesn’t need to be. A mosaic of five shades that beautifully blends together shimmery golds and pastel pinks, it gives skin a subtle sheen and a soft veil of color.
The Luminous Bronzer
This limited-edition shimmery cream bronzer from Laura Mercier is the ultimate decadent treat for your face and body this summer. Lightweight and soft to the touch, it’s infused with oils and vitamins that help nourish and soften skin whilst giving it a gorgeous golden glow. Use your fingertips to apply anywhere you want a sun-kissed sheen, from your cheekbones to your collarbones to your legs.
The Liquid Bronzer
A wrinkle buster and bronzer in one? Yes, please! A tinted bronzing serum that’s enriched with powerful anti-aging ingredients, this product works to lift and contour whilst smoothing and ironing out wrinkles. Not to mention the fact that it gives your face a flawless, sheer tan with a radiant, luminous finish. Fabulous.
