We don’t know about you, but we don’t limit our bronzer use to the summer months. In fact, we tend to reach for it when we’re feeling particularly pasty (which, sadly, encompasses about 75% of the year). We’ll forever love it for its ability to make us look sun-kissed with one sweep, and shudder to think of a world before its existence. And, as it turns out, so do some of our favorite celebs. Ahead, you’ll find five bronzers (read: no hint of orange in any of these shades) that Gigi Hadid, Alessandra Ambrosio, and more have deemed “the one.”

Gigi Hadid

When we caught up with the model of the moment and face of Maybelline backstage at Tom Ford’s F/W 15 show in Los Angeles, she named the brand’s Fit Me! Bronzer ($8) as her go-to for a night out.

Vanessa Hudgens

The actress and Broadway star spilled the contents of her makeup bag for us a few months back. Her bronzer of choice? Kevyn Aucoin’s The Celestial Bronzing Veil ($48). Unfortunately, the brand has since discontinued the bronzer, but it's been replaced by the much-beloved Neo Bronzer ($38).

Alessandra Ambrosio

And finally, no celeb-approved bronzer list would be complete without the perpetually glowy-skinned Alessandra Ambrosio. She told us that MAC’s Bronzing Powder ($30) is her absolute favorite.
