With summer months long gone (minus the heatwave in Los Angeles), our golden tan from lounging in the sun (with SPF, of course) begins to fade. Which means it’s time to up the bronzer in an effort to prolong our sun-kissed color as long as we can. Bronzer truly has the power to transform your face with contouring tricks or subtle swipes on your cheekbones. Count us in.
If you’re due for a new compact of the bronzing magic, we’ve gathered our picks for clean(ish) bronzers to add to your makeup routine. As we’ve said before, it all starts with slowly replacing your everyday skincare and makeup essentials to clean(er) alternatives. It’s unrealistic to swap out every single product to non-toxic options, but we’re all for supporting small changes that lead to a healthier lifestyle. Start the switch today with our clean(ish) bronzer picks.
Color + Light: Crème
A clean formula for a natural and radiant glow. The duo kit allows buildable coverage, which is always great for day-to-night makeup looks.
This clean option can also be used as a creamy eyeshadow, and we’re never mad at a multitasking product.
This slightly shimmery power will soothe and nourish your skin thanks to its ingredients like squalane oil and amino acids.
Bio Bronzer Stick
If you prefer a creamy application, give W3LL People’s cubby stick a try. It makes for a great option to keep in your purse too, for when you’re on the go and need a little touch-up.
Murumuru Butter Bronzer
Vegan, paraben, and cruelty-free at a nice price point. Add this to your shopping cart now or the next time you’re at the drugstore.
Bronzed Beauty™ Bronzer Duo
Made with beneficial bronzing botanicals and without sulfates, parabens, and other harmful ingredients.
