Is it Friday already?? This week flew by! I didn't have many posts planned out for this week but I did have plans for show my top 5 Bronzers today! Hopefully next week I'll have more posts and videos to share!
It took me a while to find what Bronzers work for my skin tone. Lots of trial and errors! Hopefully these Bronzers can be good recommendations for you all if you are looking for a new one to try!
You all know I'm a huge Nars fan and Laguna is my all time favorite. You can tell it's well loved. It looks slightly shimmery in the swatch but when it's applied to the face there is no shimmer. This works well for my skin tone to contour and warm up my face a little. It's warm toned so it's great for summer time.
This one is from one of the Nars bronzer and highlight duos that come in 3 different shades. I have the medium shade and it's more cool toned than Laguna. I like this one more in the summer if I wear some self tanner because it has a slight reddish undertone on my skin.
This one is definitely a cult favorite that seems to look good on most skin tones. This is not only good for contouring but for bronzing up your face without it looking muddy.
Too Faced Chocolate Soleil
I have both the regular (left, top swatch) and the milk chocolate (right, bottom swatch). The regular one is a mini size and I prefer it to the milk chocolate one. The milk chocolate looks too Orange on me. Just like the name says, these smell like chocolate!
The Balm Bahama Mama
This one is probably the darkest out of the bunch, and it's also crazy pigmented so you have to be careful with it. For some reason this doesnt swatch well, but it applies to the face nicely. This is another one I like to use in the summer when I have self tanner on, but I've used it a few time recently and I forgot how much I love it!
What are your favorite Bronzers?? Let me know in the comments! Also what would you like to see next week for 5 on Friday??
Gosh you have so many bronzers! LOL! I only have two in my collection, one from Essense and another from Pixi which I received in my ipsy bag. I have been completely obsessing about the Pixi bronzer, what a gorgeous glow to the face!ReplyDelete
I have read so many great things about Hoola, I think I'll pick that up next..if I ever finish using the two bronzers in my collection. LOL!

Lol I'm a bronzer hoarder. Once I got into them I could stop buying them haha!!!Delete
I really think that you would look hoola Shireen! You can get it even if you don't finish yours LOL!! The one bronzer I've ever finished was the Laguna one and now I'm half way through another!
Hush! You're such an enabler! LOL! <3Delete
Lol I really am!! I'm the worst person to go shopping with because I'm always like yes you need that!Delete
i love mac bronzerReplyDelete
I'll have to try those!Delete
You have quite a selection! I don't own many bronzers...I honestly don't like to contour. I feel like it just doesn't look right on me. Occasionally I will bronze my face, using the Anastasia Contour Kit or Benefit Hoola...but that's about it. I have Bahama Mama...but like you mentioned, it's so dark and pigmented, I rarely use it. I'm scared I'm going to over do it and look insane! LOL!ReplyDelete
I'm such a hoarder lol!! It took me a while to get into Bronzers and contouring. at first I thought it didn't look right on my either! And I'm glad you know what I'm talking about with Bahama mama lol!! I've been wanting that contour kit!Delete
I have chocolate soleil and really like it! That is mostly what I am using now but I am so pale right now most things pull too warm on me :( Love these 5 on Friday posts!ReplyDelete
Thanks Margo, I'm glad you like these posts! And I totally get that because I'm so pale too! And if it's too cool toned it makes my face look dirty!Delete
Laguna got so much love from you! I used to really love Hoola, but it seems to be a little toooo orange on me compared to my other bronzers (even though a lot of people like it because it's on the less orangey scale). D&G Tan works so wonderfully on me or paired with another contour/bronzer, it has really ashy tones so it mimics natural shadow very nicely. I just got a Bobbi Brown bronzer in natural, hoping that works out well for me!ReplyDelete

I remember you talking about that D&G bronzer a while ago! It sounds super nice. Let me know how you like the Bobbi brown one, I've never tried any of her makeup before!Delete
Nice collection of bronzers Ashley! I would like to try the Nars Laguna Bronzer it looks so pretty! The only Bronzer I have is VS Bronzer in Goddess (Medium). I really like it, I just have to use a light hand or it will clashes with my complexion and the bronzer makes me look orange lol.ReplyDelete
Thank you Pilar! Nars Laguna is really great, and their bronzer called casino looks super pretty too! I think its more bronzy because sometimes Laguna can look Orange on me too if I don't use a light hand! So I totally get what you are saying lol!!Delete
I'm just now trying bronzers. Love Hoola! That laguna and paloma by Nars looks awesome! I need to jump on that. LOLReplyDelete
It was hard for me to get into them at first! I think you would like the Nars ones!Delete
