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, Chanel Iman, and more have deemed “the one.”
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.
For a similar sun-kissed glow to Chanel Iman, try Chanel’s Soleil Tan de Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base ($50).
For a sun-kissed glow like Zoe Kravitz, turn to Benefit’s cult-status Hoola Bronzer, which helps to fake a natural glow.
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. Unfortunately, the brand has since discontinued the bronzer, but it's been replaced by the much-beloved Neo Bronzer.
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 is her absolute favorite.
