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 seven bronzers (read: no hint of orange in any of these shades) that Gigi Hadid, Alessandra Ambrosio, and more have deemed “the one.” Keep scrolling to see (and shop) them all!
Some might call the Kardashians the queens of bronzer, so naturally, we paid attention when Kim told Into the Gloss her bronzer of choice: her line Kardashian Beauty’s Endless Summer Matte Bronzer ($15) in Cabana Bronze. She’s also said to have used Smashbox’s Bronze Lights ($34) in Summer Matte, which is a favorite of her makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic.
Williams is a fair-skinned beauty, so we were curious to see which bronzer she counts on to give her a back-from-the-beach glow: That would be Jouer’s Mineral Powder Bronzer ($30) in Suntan.
Using a bronzer that is two-three shades darker than the one you already use will make for a great contour shade.
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 ($25) is her absolute favorite.
