The Best Bronzers For Fair Skin

If your skin's so fair you often wonder if you're actually transparent, we can understand the idea of bronzer could be a little scary.

A compact of baked brown powder might look like it won't work for you if your skin is very fair, but trust us, bronzer is your friend, no matter what your complexion.

Can you wear bronzer if you are very fair?

Absolutely. Bronzer doesn't have to be used to tan per se, you see. While it can undoubtedly give you some colour, it can also be used to add depth and warmth to your complexion, without necessarily making you that much darker.

How do I apply bronzer?

Our advice? Invest in a short, fat brush with dense fibres - we like Laura Mercier's Bronzer Brush, £37.00 - which will help evenly disperse the bronzer over your face. Swoosh it round and dust over your face, focussing on the bridge of your nose, tops of you cheekbones and near your hairline (anywhere the sun would naturally hit) for a natural sunkissed glow.
