Nothing gets us excited for warm weather faster than when new bronzing products drop. From the sunless mists and self-tanners to the shimmer sticks and oils, to all the dew-enhancing, glow-perfecting powders, liquids, and creams in between – we love a sun-kissed glow!
And after winter, there’s no time like the present to fake it ’til you make it in the tan department. Plus, the genius of these new products is that they adjust to all skin types and tones, to provide as much (or as subtle a glow) as you want. In the mood for a mini cheek pop? There’s a bronzer duo for that. Want a pearlescent copper eye? See below for the ultimate shadow. Craving an all-over baked vibe? We found a mist to achieve that glow goal in four hours.
Whether you’re going somewhere (or going nowhere at all), these bronzy must-haves will let you live your best island-ready life. Even if that island is your living room couch RN.
Sculpt, then sheen with Jouer’s pretty palettes containing velvety powders in the most luxurious shades. These not-your-average bronzer formulas even contain vitamin E for mega antioxidant benefits, acting as a natural conditioner for your skin.
Benefit’s best-selling peachy blush with golden flecks just got a makeover and now comes in a mini size, which means bronzing on the go can happen 24/7. Fair warning though: its creamy, blendable texture causes major GLOMO (glow-induced FOMO)
The easiest, mess-free way to get your glow on, no tools required. Mophe’s pigment-packed stick comes in five shimmery shades (like champagne, white gold, and pink) and illuminates any feature you want – from the cheekbones down to the décolleté.
Sultry, bronzed-up eyes are instantly achievable with this covetable copper shade that looks divine as an all-over shadow, impactful cat-eye pop, or inner corner highlight. Try all three at once if you’re about that more is more life.
Mist your way to a vacay-worthy glow while getting a hefty dose of vitamins at the same time. Infused with hydrating hyaluronic acid, refreshing green mandarin water and vitamin C and D boosters, it’s the safest way to tan, without harmful exposure to rays. All you do is exfoliate, mist, do a once over with the Mitt to check for missed patches, then settle in for a Netflix marathon as your color starts to develop after four hours.
Meet the newest (and currently only) 2-in-1 loose highlighter on the beauty block. Micro-fine pearls give off that megawatt glow and both shades can be applied solo, or together, for a duo-chrome finish.
Going to the beach (or the club) with Tom Ford shimmer oil slathered all over your body just feels right. Especially since this silky, glistening topcoat for your skin gives off wafts of white florals and sandalwood whenever anyone enters your path. For the splurgy price tag, consider it a bronzer and TF fragrance in one. Seriously.
Primer before bronzer is pretty much a prerequisite step if you want a truly flawless beat, but thanks to this little compact you can achieve a smooth canvas while applying your sun-kissed color. It’s also vegan, long-lasting and clean AF, so you can stock up because you obviously can’t beat the price.
Swipe on this coco-scented body stick in three different shades (from light to deep) when you’re wishing you were OOO, but really stuck at your desk – or you know, WFH. Bonus: Not only is it waterproof, but actually comprised of five different forms of coconut, to nourish your skin and blur imperfections.
